One Of My Favourite Swing Clips (2018)

Shot on July 20th, 2018 – I’d give this swing a C+ grade, as I have since fixed the grip (it wasn’t standard neutral here) and of course I’ve done yeoman’s work in optimizing my stance, back pivot and downswing.

I was chagrined at the time that I was only able to shoot video that day at 30 fps – my up-to-400 fps camera had broken and I hadn’t yet sprung for an iPhone to make the need of a camera obsolete going forward.

Musings: The “One Major Move” Still Applies To The New Model

If you are in the optimal address position before initiating the backswing pivot, there’s not much that can go wrong, but one must be wary of not performing the optimal mechanical move, since (if you’re going to this trouble) you want an optimal swing.

George Knudson – A Model of MCS

I’d like to thank M.L. for emailing me the link to the George Knudson swing highlights that I’ve never seen before.

What Does “MCS” in the “MCS Golf Swing” Mean?

The “MCS” in the phrase “MCS Golf Swing” of course means “Mechanically-Correct Swing.”

Speaking from a teaching or instruction point of view, let alone deciding to swing using a certain model, the very first question about a golf swing model should be, “Is it mechanically-sound?”

The answer to that question with any iteration you choose to pick from the Modern Golf Swings out there is simply and concisely, “No,” which means it shouldn’t be used for the purpose of swinging a golf club.
