I received the article from 2 people already (thanks C.R. & David D.), because once again, WAX Golfreaders know more about a proper golf swing than the so-called “swing gurus” who publish things or talk about the golf swing on TV/Radio.
I can’t be polite about this, because if knowing proper golf swing mechanics required a university or college degree, these people would fail freshman year, and they’re teaching people.
I’ve been watching the action in the final round of the Open Championship, and it seems that, while he’s hit a couple of shaky shots to end his front 9, Tiger Woods incredibly seems on course to bagging his 15th major tropy.
I said in last year’s video on the golf swing, “E = MCS,” that the mechanics of the back swing pivot could be broken down into a very simple concept, which I termed the “One Major Move.”
When I began to look at my own “plane” with the left arm at the top and the down swing “slot,” I discovered that not only is the “One Major Move”the best way to make your pivot, it’s also the best way to swing on plane when you do it the way the model dictates.
As promised, here is some video from yesterday’s session with Driver seen from 4 different angles.
After smashing some mammoth drives with baby draws, I loved what I saw on video when I got home, and one swing struck me in particular – in the face-on swing (the 3rd in the sequence), I couldn’t believe the speed in the transition from the top down to impact.
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.
