There is a process, I’ve found, with making lasting improvements to one’s motion in the golf swing – and of course, I’m talking about mechanically-correct motion, because anything that is not mechanically-correct is a hazard to one’s health.
A month ago, I blogged about my revelation on what “tight” actually means with the term “tight pivot and top position.”
Well, a month later, I have gone from making the swing motions with the SwingRite based on my knowledge alone that this new swing thought was the closest I’ve come yet to the theoretical MCS Golf Swing model to… today, making effortless swings (at least they “feel” effortless) and still clicking the SwingRite on the lower setting I moved it to a couple of weeks ago.
Before today, it’s been a month of setting up carefully in the proper position and then making that pivot, again very carefully, then swinging down and through in the hopes of hearing and feeling that wonderful “click!” that tells me I’m doing it properly.

But today, it’s been a matter of making unconscious swings from the setup, focusing only on what I’ve focused upon in the past months of swinging – the “One Major Move” as described in the “E = MCS” video, with the new tight motion and top position.
The great thing is I now have the “feel” for where I’m supposed to be at the top, and as I’ve said, once you know where you’re supposed to be, the action between address and top is something you no longer have to worry about with regards to hand action, club path, etc.
From there, I’ve been simply “stepping into it” the way I’ve always done, with the one thought to make that “drop” in the “Drop & Pop.”
Swinging The SwingRite With A “Tight” Top Position
Nothing more, nothing less.
In fact, after keying in the last sentence above, I’ve just lowered the setting to around 1, meaning I have only a few more twists to increase the resistance until I’m at the absolute lowest setting, and still clicked it easily on the first try.
I really have to get this on video soon. But when I, it will look a lot closer to this:
… than my swing has looked before. and how can one not like that?!?
I’d say it’s time to get into the “lab” in the New Year and see what kind of numbers I’m able to get with my closest-to-the-MCS-Golf-Swing-model action yet…
