Here’s A Tight Back Swing (Anthony Kim)

I know most people won’t have heard of Anthony Kim if they are new to the game (new meaning in the last 5 to 8 years), and he’s no longer in the game, but I ran across a clip of him swinging.

All I could think about watching it was, “Now, that is a tight back swing!”

When Building A House, You Must Follow The Blueprint, Correct?

This is not a scold but what I would call valuable advice, when it comes to swinging a golf club according to the MCS Golf Swing theory.

Now, you may have decided already that you’re getting enough out of it to not have to follow the address procedure and mechanical actions to the letter, but if you’re not doing so and struggling with your ball-striking, then that is the reason.

Proof On The Tight Pivot

In the “MCS – The Kinetic Chain” video, I continued the theme of leveraging the pivot with the “One Major Move” which I introduced in the “E = MCS” swing video.

I had also addressed the nature of how to leverage with the “One Exercise” drill with the Kettle Bell, and below you can see the proof of a tighter pivot when I actually swing the Kettle Bell as if making a golf swing.

Why The MCS Swing Leverages With So Little Effort

I keep harping on how position is the key to performing a mechanically-sound golf swing without compensations or manipulations.

If you think about it, the ball is not in motion, and if you are swinging from a fixed point on the ground, then there is really only position from which you can swing to make pure contact without having to engage some or a lot of hand-eye coordination and lateral/vertical motion.

Jon Rahm With Some Driving Thoughts

I’ll leave out the parts with which I disagree (such as the “swing left” stuff and the “use the ground” of course, because everyone does, unless they’re levitating), but if you look at big driver Jon Rahm, a lot of what he’s saying goes hand-in-hand with my MCS Golf Swing philosophy or principles.

Super Quiet Leverage – Irons Down The Line

If you know anything about balancing car tires, you know that if they are out of balance, you will get vibration or motion (unwanted motion) in them as they turn.

MCS & The Swing Bottom

I guess there’s no better proof to show that if you swing according to the MCS Golf Swing model, you’ll have a consistent swing bottom than by just showing it.

Even if you don’t have the new “MCS – The Kinetic Chain” video, where I delve deeper into the aspects of the the swing as demonstrated in the “E = MCS” swing video, the initial video in the last trio of videos gives you the stance and mechanics to make what I’m doing below a part of your swing.

Stable Head & Pivot + Stepping Into It = Leverage

This is not to say that you can’t generate leverage without a stable head on the back swing or down swing pivots, or if you shift laterally during the swing.

I’m talking about optimal leverage which preserves consistency, and that of course has to do with the “One Major Move.”
