Justin Thomas And Hand Action (MCS Solves The Problem)

By now, everyone on the waiting list for the “MCS – Kinetic Chain” has received their email on the technical disaster that befell me to close out last week – thanks to everyone who responded with your supportive emails, as they were the bright spot this weekend.

The issues were the reason for my lack of posts on the weekend, but let’s continue with a subject for the day – the hand action and club face during the swing.

I found something that dovetails perfectly with one of the things I discuss in the upcoming video – how it doesn’t matter what kind of rotation or counter-rotation or non-rotation you perform with your hands when you have proper MCS setup and make that “One Major Move” with the tight pivot.

First, you get this from Golf Digest online:


If you look at the above picture, you’ll see that familiar move that Justin makes before the actual swing, going to what I’ve been calling the “3 O’Clock” position in the swing arc, and it’s a move that we’ve seen before, from Mike Weir back in the day.

The reason Justin does it, according the Golf Digest article is:

Thomas recently explained to Golf Digest that he’s checking to make sure the clubface is rotating upward, not pointing to the ground, which would be closed.

He says a closed face at that point in his actual swing causes him to get the club “across the line” at the top, or pointing to the right of the target.

From there, he tends to drop the club too far to the inside on the downswing, making it difficult to hit a fade—his preferred ball flight.

And this is the problem you run into when you are manipulating and consciously doing things in your swing due to the fact that your setup and mechanics are synced.

As I revealed a little while ago however in a previous posting, the proper MCS setup with the “One Major Move” eliminates the need to worry about the hand action and the club face during the swing.

We already discussed the “3 To 9” aspect of the swing, and what the club face should look like on the down swing at these two points including impact – the “square to square to square” concept, but as I said before, it shouldn’t matter what is going on, really, with the club face on the back swing.

The reason for this is in the setup and grip aspect of the MCS Golf Swing model – this ensures that whatever you are doing in the back swing, you should be at the same standard top position and should be coming back to impact with a square club face.

So, just another thing in the MCS Golf Swing model that ensures you don’t have to worry about anything other than making that “One Major Move” and then “Stepping Into It” on your transition and down swing!
