Golf Legend Mickey Wright Condemns The Modern Swing

This is incredible – I’ve written a couple of posts before about Mickey Wright, first about her great Classic Golf Swing action and then a little more breaking down her setup and mechanics, but the legendary golfer really gives the Modern Golf Swing a firm condemnation in a long-awaited interview with Golf Digest (thanks to Peter A for passing it on).

I’m wondering how many of the greatest golfers ever have to to knock down the Modern Golf Swing, but they won’t be around forever – so it’s a good thing to get them on the record.

This Is Cool – Back Injury Researcher Has A Classic Golf Swing Model

There is a university not to far from where I live, by the name of the University of Waterloo, that is home to Dr. Stuart McGill, a professor emeritus there, about whom Welshman has been telling me over the summer.

I haven’t had time to fully investigate him, having been busy with the “E = MCS” video and now the follow-up material, but I went to check him out today at Welshman’s urging, and some of you will love this…

His views on the back and athletic motion support Classic Golf Swing theory over Modern Golf Swing theory, if what I’ve seen researching his work is any indication!

Walked A Fun 18 Holes Yesterday (Ball Goes Far)

I was surprised yesterday when, during an entertaining 18 holes walked up at Mill Run Golf Club as Welshman’s guest with two friends of his (one is a teaching professional at Angus Glen G.C., a Canadian Open site), I realized that I hadn’t played a full 18 holes of golf in over two and a half years (January 2015 in California).

That was riding in a cart as well РI had to really go back to remember the last time I walked 18 holes on a full length course with a carry bag (I played quite a few 9 hole rounds on the course at the facility where I have practiced), and that was back in the summer of 2013.

The “One Exercise” Field Testing – Success

I mentioned that I was giving the “One Exercise” to various people to test out so see if it helped their personal issues with building a fully MCS golf swing, and I am pleased say that my prediction has borne out.

Whatever the issue is, if you perform the “One Exercise” for either the back swing or down swing, you will see a very quick and dramatic increase in mechanical performance, and I can’t wait for you all who’ve reserved the coming “EMCS2 – The Follow Up” video to try it and see for yourselves.

DJ’s Theory – Golf Is A Dying Sport B/C of Modern Golf Swing

foley-tigerOriginally posted Sept 18, 2016 – and I’ve seen nothing in the past year that would change my opinion…

It is no secret that the golf industry is in decline, perhaps part of a natural boom and bust cycle, but I would posit that a major facet of it is in the fact that the modern golf swing is chasing and keeping people away from the game.

Golf will always be played, so the game itself is not in peril.  There will always be enough people with the means, opportunity and of course desire to play.

Another Theory Proven – I Took A Month Off…

I hadn’t swung a club at a ball in about a month when I got together with Welshman today to show him the “One Exercise” that I’ve devised for the training of just about anything you need with regards to the swing.

I’ve said that it works for both the back swing and the down swing, and with Welshman, it was his down swing and early shoulder turn that has been bedeviling him, in addition to a lateral head move which would cause him to top the ball (swing bottom moves forward and bad things happen).

When The Hips Control The Pivot…

I want to thank everyone who has pre-ordered the “EMCS2 – The Follow Up” video.

Today is the last day it will be available to order before next month’s release, so you can still get the discount on it now or get the discount on the combo deal until midnight tonight EST!

Now, as to today’s posting, for those who are anticipating the follow-up video to “E = MCS…”

You will find (when you properly use the hips and legs) that certain things happen, such as an effortless shoulder “turn,” which is a term I don’t like use to because of the problems that image creates.

Q: “What Is ‘Leverage?'” A: It Means Using The Lower Body…

Originally posted June 21, 2016 – But Still Very Relevant!

The question I was asked via an emailed query is very straightforward :

You constantly refer to “leverage” as the source of MCS power. No doubt you’re right. But I wish I had a clearer idea of what is being levered, what mechanical advantage is obtained thereby and how this increases clubhead speed.

“Losing One’s Level” Is Not A Good Thing

You may have heard some things regarding the tendency of Modern Golf Swingers to do what I call “losing one’s level,” which is also called the “harpoon” by some and which is actually praised in modern analysis.

Even worse, you will hear some analysts calling this losing of one’s level on the down swing (where the head precipitously drops) as “getting ready to jump” at the impact stage, which is absurd – if you lose your level on the down swing and don’t react to it before impact, you’ll hit the ground about a foot behind the ball.

“One Drill/Exercise” To Go With “One Major Move”

I’ve got great news for those of you who’ve ordered the upcoming “EMCS – The Follow Up” video – I’ve been talking about using various drills and exercises to help solve some of the more common problems that people encounter with the golf swing and…

I believe that I have developed the one drill or exercise that will universally solve these problems!
