Progress – Fixed The Setup (More Work Needed On Swing Action)

I knew I’d figured out my problem correctly when I set up today and smacked the first drive down the stripe – so the setup issue is solved, and I got down to working on the actual swing.

Having more or less the proper back pivot working about halfway through the session, I was getting the idea of the proper down swing by the time I was out of time (I was so enthused, I would have stayed but the next hour was already booked).

The Simplest Swing Action (But Likely Harder To Explain)

If you’re wondering why I’ve been working so long and seemingly without progress on my new swing model, it’s because it’s the simplest action one can make with a mechanically-correct swing model that maximizes both power and accuracy combined.

Why I Swing Hard & Miss Widely

For one, I swing with mechanical-correctness even when my form is off, so I don’t worry about injuries when working on my swing or playing golf.

The second reason is my philosophy – no matter how hard one swings, if one is swinging properly, big misses are eliminated or greatly reduced in likelihood, so I want to see where my misses go, and by how much.

190 MPH Ball Speed With No Glove & A Mystery Solved

Things are progressing, swing-wise.

I’m still positive that I’m having issues setting up completely square to my target line on the Tracer Golf screen because I tried something at the end of my session and suddenly, the balls were going more or less straight instead of pulled most of the time.

I Made This GIF Six Years Ago – The Visual Hasn’t Changed

This was something I did while talking to the camera during my “MCS – Ultimate Leverage” video, released in early 2015, as some of you old-timers on the site will remember.

Over the intervening years, I made adjustments and changes to the model setup and slightly in the mechanics area, but the visual is still the same.

Swinging Right-Handed Means Exactly That

One would think that this is a straight-forward statement and even simpler concept, but I’ve watched enough so-called right-handed swingers to see that almost no one actually does it.

This is why Mike Dunaway’s swing looked so markedly different from any other swing you see, even his mentor’s – he was swinging virtually 100% with his right arm and hand.

Post-Two-Month Break – 190 MPH Ball Speed & Nearly 130 MPH Club…

I didn’t get quite get the new model nailed down today on my first foray back to hitting balls at the Tracer Golf facility.

I’ll be honest, however – I loved it every moment of it.

The most joy I’ve had in my swing research over the years have been in those solitary moments on the range or golf course, working on whatever it was I was after, and the process always gave me as much pleasure as the results.

This Hybrid Model Has Snead’s Pivot Action

It is a little different from the way I built the original MCS Classic Golf Swing pivot on Ben Hogan’s action.

Hogan’s was such a good action, it was the perfect pivot, if you will, for swinging in the manner that my modeling has prescribed.

Happy New Year – Back To Work

Happy New Year, WAX Nation!

I took the month of December off swinging or blogging (although I’m always working on the swing at home even when not hitting balls), to enjoy the holiday season with family and friends, but it’s back to work time.
