Nailing My MCS Now (Just Getting Better & Better)

Well, I went the range today to see if my form would hold up on full-out swings using my new “Big Legs, Little Arms” pivot action with the hips and legs.

I have had a tendency to over-swing and get too long in the back swing pivot, so when I nailed the pivot action according to the model on Friday, I next wanted to see if I could repeat that action swinging for the fences.

Some Irons Gifs – U.S. Open Sunday Thread

Well, it seems I missed quite the day on the links yesterday in day 3 of the U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills!

I will confess that I was up late Friday and early Saturday (to watch some World Cup matches), and that by the time I got around to watching the leaders tee off in the afternoon, I was more interested in watching the insides of my eyelids than the tournament.

So I Said I Was Going To Shorten My Back Swing…

And now I’m there, with the setup adjustment from last week and now the “One Major Move” from the MCS Golf Swing model.

I got video from today’s session, and you will hardly recognize this swing, because I’ve actually made a change to my top position to further shallow out my plane.

So, “Dropping” Your Club Into The “Slot” Is Easy…

It’s easy when you’re in the proper position to do so.  It is much easier than spending endless time on the range trying to groove a new manipulation to your swing.

In fact, I’m of the opinion that no one ever really changes their swing when they do it right – they change something in their setup and swing the same way.

Staying “Behind” The Ball Rather Than “Moving Behind” It

There’s a reason for every single thing that is in the MCS Golf Swing model theory.

You’ll hear a lot of talk in certain circles about the need to “move behind the ball” on the back swing pivot, but that is only because the swinger is not where they need to be at impact when they begin that pivot.

Hitting The Ping G20 – Oh My… (Gifs)

As you all know, I usually swing to play a fade, because most people will either play a fade or draw depending on how they come through impact.

Today however, I was working on my positioning to get the deepest possible “drop” in my “Drop & Pop,” which makes it easier to shape a draw if you’re a natural fader, and the results were… interesting!

DJ Plays A Hole On The Golf Course

Here is a taste of what I would like to do for the upcoming “Project 2018” video – showing how MCS plays on the course.

I thought I would be able to get more video than the one hole played in the video clip, at Pheasant Run GC in Sharon, Ontario on Monday.

Proper Setup Could = 10 MPH Difference (Ball Speed)

I was at the range today trying to get into a little better swing shape before I get out to the testing facility for my “beginning of the season” numbers (and you want to get into some semblance of swing form before doing an analysis, or else you’re just wasting time).

You Need Proper Setup To Perform Good Mechanical Action w/o Compensations

I try to drill and drill the point home that the setup is the end-all and be-all of a proper mechanical action without compensations in your golf swing.

All compensations come from either one or both of two things:

Building Your Own Golf Swing Machine (Setup)

I’ll keep saying it, because sometimes the most obvious thing is the one that people keep overlooking, and when it comes to fixing swing flaws, most of them begin right at address.

I spent years thinking that the way to fix a certain swing flaw (over the top, early heel lift, etc.) was to find the proper mechanics, and that’s what all the golf magazines and “tip” experts on television are doing.
