There Are Some Things Many People Get Wrong

The easiest part of striking a golf ball is in the fact that it isn’t moving – it is a stationary object, and you are never going to strike or stroke a ball that is in motion.

So, what is the most difficult part of striking a golf ball?

It’s the same fact – the ball is not in motion, rather it is sitting there quite placidly, awaiting your stroke at it.

My “Most Important” Part Of The Back Swing – Part I

I’ve spent some time talking about the down swing with regards to the “Drop & Pop,” so I thought perhaps I’d go backwards from there to the most important part of the back swing pivot, which is the initial move.

Just as the tendency for something to go wrong in the down swing is the initial move, the “Drop” part of the “Drop & Pop,” the most crucial part of the back swing pivot and the “One Major Move” is the first part.

What Happened To Jason Day? Alignment?

I noticed something when the wheels came off Jason Day’s cart, and because I was watching live and couldn’t record the round, I had to wait for the video later to see if I’d actually seen what I thought I saw.

I am pretty sure that I got it right, although I initially thought that Day was standing with a closed stance to his target line, which for someone who stands square to the line for the most part, would cause either a right push or a pull hook depending on how you come into the ball (from the inside or over the top).

Let’s Look At the Drop & The Pop (Part 1)

If you can get to the “Drop” position, your down swing is half over – the other half is the “Pop” which, as I’ve stated, includes the motion from the “3 to 9 O’Clock” positions when viewing a swinger from behind.

Although the down swing is a continuous motion to the finish, and although the only things that matter (to the ball) are over at impact, there is a way to break the down swing into two separate components for drilling, I am sure.

New Video – Are You Doing The “Wall Drill?”

If there is one thing you can do to improve your pivot and you haven’t been doing it – I can’t recommend the “Wall Drill” in the new “E = MCS” video enough.

Everything that matters in the golf swing, when it comes to the pivot, to speed & power production, is found below the belt – this is the power area, in the hips & legs, and the “Wall Drill” was developed to aid people in getting to that area.

Why The MCS Golf Swing IS “The Simplest Golf Swing Ever”

I’ve compiled some iron swings taken a couple of months back when I was producing the “E = MCS” video, because of course, the video is about how to swing, not a showcase for my own swing.

There are of course some of my swings in the video for demo purposes, but the place to really look at the MCS Golf Swing rather than learn how to swing this way, is here on the blog, where people can watch swing clips until their eyes fall out, if they wish.

The Golf Industry Is Going To HATE My Video (Updated)

Update – I’ve just added a little swing montage of swings I took for the making of the video, not all of which made it out of the cutting room, halfway down the post. /update

I’ve said many times that the golf industry has no interest in making learning the golf swing easier.

Why would they?  The latest $500 driver relies on them telling you that it’s the answer to your problems – until the next $500 driver is the answer to your problems.

And of course, the idea that you could learn a workable and reliable golf swing and then need no further lessons or instructions other than a tweak once in a while… that would be disastrous.

Have You Noticed Something About The “One Major Move” Gif?

I don’t know if anyone has noticed the very interesting thing about the “One Major Move” gif. or the “Machine Model,” as I call it.

It’s not something that will jump out at you, but once you notice it, you really can’t “unsee” it.

One Kettle Bell – So Many Proofs!

I’ve got a segment in the upcoming “E = MCS” video that proves, with just one thing (a 20lb or 9kg kettle bell), so many things about MCS and why the analysts on TV, for the most part, don’t know what they’re talking about.

I’ve said before that the “flying foot” that gets so much praise on the telecasts is something that the analysts either don’t know is wrong, or that they know it’s wrong and are being incredibly dishonest in praising it as a power move.

I mean, it sounds harsh, but is there another option when someone is praising something that is mechanically-incorrect?

Why The Stable Head Really Works

Other than the universally proven fact in all types of sports that a stable head or position improves accuracy and precision where they are needed (would you rather throw a ball at a target while standing still or on the back of a moving truck?).

Below you’ll see a gif. of some positions that jumped out at me while I was making stills for the upcoming video, and remember that these are static pictures of me in motion, and are not positions that I’ve tried to “hit.”
