Well, it seems no one will have an excuse after today – anyone who is trying to play a power game or hit the ball a long distance (which is, in essence, the “power game”) with a modern golf swing model is putting themselves at risk of back injuries.
Lest anyone think that I am claiming with my “MCS” model, I have discovered the only way to swing a golf club or anything like what you here from the golf swing gurus about “their” own swing models.
If a swing is mechanically-sound or correct, then of course you will see certain things in it – for example, you need a free and full hip turn without any attempt to restrict it, for a swing to be mechanically-correct.
Everyone has been looking at Joe Miller’s swing, but I wanted to show Finalist runner-up Ryan Steenberg’s swing, because there’s a lot you can learn from it (if you watch any of the MCS Trilogy swing videos, you’ll learn the same things).
I was watching the Northern Trust yesterday, and during the CBScoverage, you would have seen Peter Kostis nail one of the MCSswing theory’s fundamental concepts – the stable head position during the swing, while analyzing Bubba Watson’s swing.
This is nothing I have invented, of course – the concept of keeping a stable head has been around as long as golf swing instruction has been around – but as with many other principles, it became “not necessary” when the modern swing proponents found it increasingly difficult to keep a stable head during the swing.
