Quick Update: Switching Hands – Easier Said Than Done

The ironic thing is, since I play sports right-handed, not just swinging a golf club, if I had been taught a golf swing with a right-dominant motion, I would have picked it up with no issues.

However, having swung left-dominant for so many years, I am finding myself having to really focus on taking the left side bias out of both the setup and the swing action (the impulse to drag the club through with the left arm rather than swing down and through with the right), but I made progress today.

Modeling Work Going Well, Time For A Test

As I said last week, I’m working on my own golf swing model at the present, a model in which I am discarding any rules or principles presented by other swingers.

I’m just asking myself, “Based upon what you now know about mechanics, what would you say now is the best way in which to swing a golf club from a speed, accuracy and repeatability standpoint?”

Now I Know Why I Loved This Version Of My Swing (July ’18)

I would say that the last year in which I did a lot of ball-striking and swing work would have been 2017 – after that, I would just go to the range once or twice a week, if that, to see if I could optimize the swing model I presented in the 2017 video “E = MCS.”

After Careful Review Pt. 2

The thing about this new setup I’m exploring is that, as I’ve said in Pt 1, it’s neither the standard Classic Golf Swing setup I laid out in the “E = MCS” video, nor is it the setup that Mike Dunaway used for his swing model, nor is it even the way I was personally setting up for the Dunaway-inspired Post-Modern Swing model.

After Careful Review Of The Classic Golf Swing…

I’ve decided to do something completely outside the box for my next foray to the Tracer Golf launch monitor site.

What might that be, one may ask?

Let me tell you – taking everything I’ve learned from personal experience and also from watching the mechanics of the greatest swingers ever, I’m dropping everything in my Continue reading

Golf.Com Article On Tiger Woods Is A Modern Swing Mish Mash

You all know of my contempt for the concepts of Modern Golf, whether it’s calling a flying leading foot something like “creating vertical lift” or the other silly term “using the ground” as if some players are floating in the air during their swings.

Well, congratulations to for a completely undecipherable article that asks how Tiger Woods creates his ball speed and answers, I’m not kidding, “Very Carefully.”

I Think I’ve Found The Left Issue (And Why I Won’t Stop)

One of the great things about doing swing research in real time is getting to share one’s work as it proceeds, but it’s also a hazard – you could miss things as you post your work, and that’s what happened just now.

A quick aside for any newcomers to the blog (and thanks for the emails) – I have developed a golf swing model based upon personal athletic intuition and studying the best swings of the greatest champions.

That model work is completed, has been for some time – the current research I’m conducting is to establish: Continue reading

After My Shoulder Adjustment, I’m Back To This Jack Nicklaus Setup

You’ll remember how I have said that Jack Nicklaus had a nearly optimal Classic Golf Swing at a time in his early years, and now that I’ve made the shoulder fix in my setup, I’m right back where I adjusted his stance.

The proper setup for the optimal action in the Classic Golf Swing, which would mean that it would be the setup in the MCS Classic Golf Swing, would be Nicklaus’ adjusted stance.

I Have A Hunch & If Correct, All Of My Posts Will Go Away

Not every post, because those analyzing or discussing other golfers’ swings have nothing wrong with them in light of my personal journey and discoveries the past few weeks and days.

But those posts about my personal swing model quest – if I’m correct about my hunch, they are all obsolete and will go away.

New High Ball Speed & Perhaps Some Swing Clips In March?

I worked on the Post-Modern swing model yesterday and got close to replicating it, as close as I’ve gotten thus far.

The main catalyst was finally squaring up my entire body, but I have to say that it will take another session or two to get used to the dramatically different look and feel of a setup I’ve never had before.
