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.”
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.
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.
First off – I have never lost faith in my MCS Classic Golf Swing model, which is virtually the same now as it was in 2017 – I always knew that there was something I was getting wrong, and I refused to give up.
For years I’ve felt tempted to just throw in the towel, but I am stubborn if I am anything, and dogged pursuit of a goal is not new to me.
If I could only figure out what I was getting wrong, I felt, I’d prove this model was everything I say it is with regards to optimal golf swinging.
In the last posting, I discussed the shocking revelation I had today that what I thought was square was still not square, just not as open.
So what happened when I discovered this?
Well, the first thing was that I switched over the MCS Classic GolfSwing setup and began to swing that way to see how things would change with the new shoulder focus and setup, because this model is old hat to me.
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.
