Young Tiger Woods & Setup Issues

Just as the 3 most important things in real estate or property are Location, Location & Location, you will always hear my belief that the 3 most important parts of the golf swing are Setup, Setup and Setup.

Here is a driver swing from a young Tiger Woods, if you’ll allow me to point out things that would have concerned me at the time.

More Modern Swing Analysis Failure – On “Using The Ground/Vertical Lift”

**Another Submission From The “Modern Golf Analysis Fail Chronicles,” Originally posted August 22, 2019**

I made a point in a comment about Justin Thomas having very low Angle of Attack despite his “flying foot” which is supposed to add “vertical lift” or to be “using the ground,” and I said that I’d check to make sure.

Why The Golf Channel Died

I am still going through my historical postings with a mind to re-posting the more relevant topics and here is one about the reason I believe the Golf Channel died.

It may not actually be, as I just checked and there’s a programming schedule that includes pre-event shows, live events, endless re-playing of live events and very little original content other than “School of Golf.”

Why You Can’t Learn Ben Hogan’s Swing (And Update With Jordan Spieth)

I will let you know when the original post from June 2014 begins.

Apologies- I’ll Be Back

I’ve been laid up with this bug for a few days (it was a good 25 month run but with 3 kids in school, it was only a matter of when).

I likely won’t be posting, definitely won’t be hitting the range in the next few days.

Back in ’95 I caught Dengue Fever while living in St. Kitts-Nevis and this feels vaguely similar to the end stages of that ordeal.

Scottie Scheffler’s Good & Not-So-Good Footwork

If you watch Scottie Scheffler’s swing mechanics, you’ll see good and not-so-good footwork in the same swing.

The culprit, you won’t be surprised to find out, is the ever-execrable Modern Golf Swing, and let me show you how it goes.

Tiger Woods Is Still So Good…

He literally shot -1 on one leg on Thursday and don’t let the +2 round yesterday fool you – after not playing in a Tour event in a year and a half, another back surgery and a shattered right leg, the man has scored better than all but 18 players thus far.

Granted it’s Augusta National where he could play blind-folded in the dark, but come on.

Wow – I’m Shocked (Not Really) By Bryson’s Injuries

Spoiler alert, no, I’m not shocked that Bryson DeChambeau’s injury WD in the Saudi event a few weeks ago wasn’t actually caused by a slip and fall while playing Ping Pong.

That was a ridiculous assertion considering his string of WD’s with injuries before the Saudi event, but I’d imagine BDC didn’t want to admit accepting appearance money while not fit to actually play.

Hogan’s Perfect Pivot

I called Ben Hogan’s pivot action the Perfect Pivot back in 2014 for a reason – that it absolutely was.

In fact, the only thing preventing me from making Hogan the model for the MCS Golf Swing rather than just the pivot action comes down to one thing he did.

8 Months Off – Face On Driver Swing

I went back a little further than last July for this swing, to June 15th to be precise, as I can’t post any face-on swings between then and July 28th due to having been working on stance and mechanics.

Not a big fan of this swing but then, I’ve had 9 months to work on the stance and mechanics, so there is actually not one blessed swing in my library that I would like at this time.
