Thanks to WAX Nation, and the nearly 10,000 comments that you’ve all contributed to the discussion on mechanically-correct golf swing principles.
As I alluded to earlier, actually reached a million views for WAX Golf some time ago, because I had the site hosted on another server than WordPress.com from December ’13 to April ’14, and none of those views are counted in this number.
Take A Bow, WAX Golf Readers
Also not included are the over 500,000 views recorded on the former DJ Watts Golf blog, nor the over 300,00 views from the blog before that, Smash Golf… I used to get bored and change sites from time to time…
There’s also the over 100,000 views on the 2 private memberships sites I ran (WattsAthletix & DJ’s Watering Hole) off-and-on between 2013-16, but rest assured – I know that there are people who will visit the the blog today who have been around for many of those nearly 2 million total views since I began blogging on the golf swing.
During that time, the one over-riding purpose has driven this journey – finding out what proper golf swing mechanics are and, if there isn’t a “perfect” golf swing action, what is the optimal swing action for how the body is built and moves.
There has never been any agenda on this blog other than, initially, posting clips of my own golf swing when I began researching the swing, analyzing and evaluating the swings of past and current professional golfers/long drivers and of course, discussion, endless discussion of all of the above!
So, on a cold and rainy Monday, I have that to warm me up and more practice on the setup adjustment I’ve been working on since last Wedneday’s swing session:
From Last Friday
That above is nearly as hard as I can swing without coming out of my shoes, and the things that strike me looking at the slo-mo are 1. How quiet the action looks despite the effort and speed, 2. That shaft is still stopping at parallel even though I’m taking the hardest cuts I can and 3. The flex coming out of that right knee with a proper pivot!
Speed & Control
That comes from the correct setup and of course the requisite mechanics. I will see later if I get more speed with an extreme wrist-cock when I get out the long drive clubs, but right now I’m just working on the regular driver swing.
I have the basic MCS setup which is for sure the proper setup, and I’ve just got to get it done the exact way I’ve explained it on the “E = MCS” swing video (even for myself, there’s a difference at times between doing what I say to do and what I’m actually doing), and if I get it right next time out, my actual golf swing should look like how I’m swinging the SwingRite.
It’s been a fun ride, friends – but this year has just begun for me!
