Swing Video – Driver 2 Angles + DTL 7 & 4 Irons

Well, after viewing and editing the video clips from Friday’s Driver and a couple of irons swings, all I can say is “Wow!”

What a difference a setup adjustment can make visually, especially when I watch the swings down the line.

Here is the setup as viewed down the line with the 7 iron and 4 iron:

As with the Driver setup adjustment, you see the more erect posture over the ball and the more vertical hang to the arms.

The new irons setup goes very nicely with the Driver stance from Friday and as described/demonstrated above in the “E = MCS” swing video from two years back.

You can compare my current setup to that of the great swingers from the Classic Golf Swing era above, if you don’t believe that it’s the proper way to stand over the ball.

So, without further ado… here are the swing clips!

This was a major “feels” change for me, as although I’ve stood this way to describe the model, it’s the most erect I’ve stood over the ball in quite some time, and probably the least extension I’ve had in the arms since forever.

It’s just as I’ve been saying, friends – I’m not changing the MCS Golf Swing model, just getting my own swing closer to that theoretical model presented in “E = MCS.”

As you can see, it just gets better and better the closer you get to it!

    I found myself with a swing flaw, and that was not allowing my head to turn on the backswing pivot. Funny how when I do that, I fall into shanking and not having good contact in general. Also decreases my speed, because the body doesn’t make a full turn. So I’m now doing what Nicklaus did and begin my backswing with a head turn. Has helped loads.

    I guess we all could get closer and closer to the model, and the closer I’m getting to it, the more I understand why certain things need to happen, and exactly how the swing works at an intricate level. I’m learning a ton just by watching you swing, and by seeing other classic swingers swing. Didn’t Mike Austin say that 87 percent of how we learn motion is through sight? Guess that’s why he wore the skeleton suit…

      The key for me, and the way I designed the MCS Golf Swing model, is the same way, MMJ – when you make that right-biased setup, the natural angle of the neck is tilted, or should be.

      If one is in a bad habit of holding the head vertical, then here’s a great key to find the right head position – always hold your head so that you can look at the back side of the ball (facing away from the target).

      On that angle, you’ll find that turning the head fully to look behind your trailing shoulder at address is possible. With that kind of range of motion, you can make big, full shoulder turn without the head getting in the way… and looking at some of my most recent swings, I could use a little more tilt myself!
