The work has continued on the MCS Post-Modern Golf Swing model during this never-ending local lockdown, which I’m now hearing will be extended from its previously extended date of May 21st to the beginning of June.
It’s possible I won’t be able to actually test-drive this model until July if things continue, but I’m making the best of the down time with the work on this model.
I’ve now begun to put together the different pieces of the swing, having established the setup position.
For a while, it was working on the initial pivot move, then I went from there to the top, progressing of course to the down move to start the down swing, the impact phase & lastly the follow-through.
I believe I’ve now got the setup down so that I can make a smooth & proper back pivot to the top & then just shift & step into the down swing.
What’s amazing it how simple it all feels after I established the mechanics of the leg & hip action on the back pivot.
The shift & post are almost unconscious, the down swing through the bottom extremely powerful (I’ve got a sore right shoulder in the rotator cuff area due to the kinetic energy of the swing stick as it goes down, through & around to the finish).
Right now, it’s going to be more fundamentals work (just as shooting free throws in a game are second nature after spending hours in the gym drilling, I feel that working on & repeating the basics of setup & swing are the secret to doing it properly on the range & course) and now as much speed work as my body will take.
With an eye on the calendar & hoping the next few weeks pass quickly!
