JJ Takes My Advice & Proves My Point Re: The Kinetic Chain

First, a note of thanks to all the new readers and visitors to WAX Golf who have taken the opportunity to enjoy the discount on the 3 Video MCS Golf Swing series.

I’ll be terminating the End Of Season sale soon, so there’s still time to get the last remaining available downloads!

Now: I’ve been told once or twice that I know what I’m talking about, and I have to thank Uncle JJ for taking my advice and proving me correct about my last advice regarding the MCS Golf Swing, especially with regards to the last video in the MCS video series, the “MCS – The Kinetic Chain.”

You’ll all remember (those of you who were around last winter and spring) that I had announced another video project, which was delayed and delayed and delayed all through the summer because I was working on refining my own swing using some new concepts…

Well, as I said, the delayed video would be well worth the delay, because I had simplified the pivot action (the “One Major Move”) and took great pains in explaining how one properly “uses the ground” to produce maximum and effortless leverage on the down swing:


I explained in the video how, after barely swinging in the previous month and without having hit balls at all the week before I hit made some Driver swings at the TXG Golf facility in Toronto at the end of July, I had actually increased my swing speed slightly over the last session two months prior, when I had been hitting balls and swinging more regularly.

It was the proof that the changes I’d made to tighten my swing pivot and action using what I presented in the “MCS – The Kinetic Chain” video had actually allowed me to not only swing at a little higher club speed after two weeks of barely swinging, but also with a nearly-perfect neutral club path, averaging less than a degree in-to-out at impact with the driver, creating a nice baby-draw shot pattern:


So, Uncle JJ emailed me last Tuesday, and hadn’t even downloaded his version of the video yet, having been busy when I sent him the link.

In his words:

I’m playing in a tourney Monday, and I haven’t swung a club in 2 months!! Yikes.

My response to him:

I’ll send you fresh links right now, and this is the perfect video to watch getting back into things. Good luck on Monday!

That was the extent of the advice I gave him, bearing in mind that he already had the first 2 videos in the MCS Golf Swing trilogy, and would be well versed in the stance setup and pivot action of the MCS swing model.

I figured that, with his base knowledge of the fundamentals, all he had to do was watch and implement the principles in the latest video.

Sure enough, it seems that my advice was just what the doctor ordered, from what JJ had to say today in this comment:

I played in a tourney yesterday, having not swung a club for over 2 months. My only preparation was watching the Kinetic Chain video’s. These video’s are the very best produced by DJ, in my opinion.

The “hitch-hiker” right arm and the left hip move are singularly exceptional. Both became my primary swing thoughts in the tourney, and I hit the ball very well (missed one makeable putt for a 79 – settled for 80)…

…At any rate, thanks, DJ, the new video’s are awesome!


Way to go JJ on the 80 after 2 months off even swinging, and thanks for taking my advice and in doing so proving what I have been saying about how to properly pivot and use the ground to leverage that golf club!

    All true! And may I add a few things. For me, there always has to be one or two things that make something click – a eureka moment, so to speak. I’ve watched every one of DJ’s videos, and it wasn’t until the Kinetic Chain, that it all finally clicked for me. Highly recommend.

    And one anecdote from my round yesterday. On the one par 3 I mentioned in my other comment, my buddy made an interesting comment. He’s a scratch golfer. He said, “I was looking at the ground during your swing, and when you made impact, it startled me! I’ve never heard that kind of compression and pop from your swing.” Made me feel good. I hit my 6-iron about 185 – 15-20 yards longer than I’ve ever hit it.

    I also reached a par 5 in 2 – driver, 5-iron. Rare for me.

    I’m now itching to get back out there and play!

      This, JJ:

      On the one par 3 I mentioned.. my buddy… a scratch golfer… said, “I was looking at the ground during your swing, and when you made impact, it startled me! I’ve never heard that kind of compression and pop from your swing…”

      … I hit my 6-iron about 185 – 15-20 yards longer than I’ve ever hit it.

      I believe your buddy was experiencing the MCS “pop” in the “Drop & Pop,” my friend!

      Really good stuff – I can’t wait for you to get back out there and play, either! 🙂
