A Golfer’s Dream? Hitting Drives @ Medinah Country Club

I just returned home from a fabulous little outing to Chicago, where I met with Medinah Country Club member Cory C. to talk about his swing and hit some balls together.

If any of you have a bucket list of golf-related things that involve things like a tour of the clubhouse, I could have checked that off for you.

WAX Nation Citizen Wins Event LD – 360 Yards!

I got an email from Wax Nation citizen D Moriarty, who has been working hard on his MCS Golf Swing, and according to him, did it ever pay off!

This is what I live for – people taking the mechanically-sound principles and writing me to tell me that they won an event, shot a new personal best score, scored below par for the first time (or the first time in ages), breaking 300 yards for the first time, or something like DM just did.

Cameron Tringale Does The Opposite Of “Jump For Power” & Sets Speed Increase Record

File this under the “Doing The Opposite Of Modern Golf Instruction Will Improve Your Performance” category, and if there wasn’t one before, there is now.

PGA Tour player Cameron Tringale, according to the PGA Tour, set an all-time mark in the stat “Year Over Year Speed Increase,” making a jump from 111.28 mph to 119.94 mph in one year.

If You’re A “Puller,” It’s Correct Action But On The Wrong Angle

That’s right – all of the people who are angst-ridden and feel you’ll never be able to swing powerfully because you “pull” the club down from the top, are actually not making the wrong motion.

It’s just that “pullers” fail to properly sequence the down swing (although a lot of it has to do with the setup and back swing pivot rather than what happens on the down swing) and pull on the wrong angle.

A Summer Of “Low Impact Heel” Investigation Now Bears Fruit

I mentioned in an earlier posting that I had made several new discoveries in the subtleties within the standard model of the MCS Golf Swing.

I suppose the early days seemed so much more fruitful than the past couple of years have been, due to the diminishing number of things to investigate and clarify.

Joaquin Niemann – Back & Knee Problems On The Way?

I got a look at the newest PGA Tour winner’s golf swing and Joaquin Niemann’s action is certainly impressive.

Looking at his pivot and follow-through, I can only wonder how long it takes before either back and/or knee problems begin to appear. Continue reading

Using The Ground Isn’t Squatting Then Jumping Or “Driving The Legs…”

I had someone with whom I’m working on his swing ask me, when I told him that squatting in the setup will interfere with hip turn, that it seemed to him that this was what I was doing during the down swing.

“He’s Going To Break An Ankle Soon…” How Times Change!

You are not dreaming if you have been thinking that this whole “flying foot syndrome” used to be considered a swing flaw.

I can show you a swing clip of a long-hitting (formerly named) Buy.com/Nationwide/Web.com (now Korn Ferry Tour) player who averaged 339.3 yards off the tee in 2003, and the comments regarding his footwork are very interesting.
