Found My Leverage Leak – This Could Be Big (For Me)

I’ve said over and over again that I created and developed the MCS Golf Swing model as an optimal athletic swing motion, not something personally for myself, and that I have lagged behind the model in my personal execution.

As pleased as I’ve been with my progress in adopting the model’s principles, it seems I have had a huge leverage leak in my setup that has prevented me from getting to that 100% execution of the theoretical model.

Athletic Instinct Proves The MCS Tilted Setup

I’m still not ready to show video of my swings, because believe it or not, I am moving ever closer to the optimal model and even Tuesday’s swings will likely be obsolete by the next range session.

Actually, let’s change “likely” to “definitely,” because I already know my adjustment for that and that it will change my address appearance (down the line more than anything) and likely the entire swing and impact, but that’s for another day.

Holy Moly – Here’s A Short Back Swing W/Big Hip & Leg Action!

I was correct when I hesitated to post video from last week’s swing session, because I had a hunch about something that I wanted to check out before doing so.

I got out today and made some swings on video and sure enough, I was right!

Reverse View – Watch The Hogan Hip & Leg Action

I want WAX Nation to look at a true, honest-to-goodness Ben Hogan “Perfect Pivot” action (honest to goodness because it’s the man himself) and compare it to the action I had yesterday.

As my long-time readers know, I looked at Hogan’s pivot action back in 2014 and discovered to my amazement that no one on TV or in the magazines actually knew or could describe what he was doing!

Swing Gifs From June 12, Open Thread & Happy Father’s Day Guys!

Well, it’s been quite the spring for me so far!

My Liverpool FC won the UEFA Champions League two weeks ago, and all of Canada’s Toronto Raptors captured their 1st NBA Championship title on Thursday, 24 years after coming into existence.

How To Improve Your Swing After 3.5 Weeks Without Hitting Ball (Improved Pivot)

I had a hunch, I wrote a couple of weeks back, about something I had been looking at 12 years back with regards to the relationship between the back pivot and the down swing involving the concepts of “push” and “pull.”

Seems I was right on the money back then, and it took looking at Mike Dunaway’s “Peace River” video demonstration of his own back pivot concept to spur me to check it out once more.

Rory McIlroy Has Some Gosh-Darned Leverage

If you want to know why Rory McIlroy has so much power for a man standing 5’9″ and weighing all of 160 lbs, you only have to look at his down swing and impact/release to see why.

Forget all the nonsense you hear on television, the true secret of Rory’s power is the leveraging he creates both with his semi-classic pivot (heel comes up a little, but even that little gives him more hip turn than a fully planted pivot) and his down swing from the top.

Don’t Tell Me What’s Happening, Tell Me HOW TO DO IT

If you were watching the CBS coverage from the Canadian Open today, you’ll have seen a swing breakdown on Rory McIlroy with Driver and how he gets positive (upward attack angle).

There was nothing technically wrong with saying to swing like Rory, but it was the whole thing once again on someone just telling you what they’re seeing, which you can see for yourself, and not a thing on how actually to swing like Rory.
