I just finished a post about how I’ve been looking at and thinking of the golf swing the wrong way in attempting to finish my journey of replicating the MCS Classic Golf Swing model, so I won’t bother posting much of Friday’s range session.
Here are a few things however, that I could point out about how things looked at the time:
I’ve been looking and thinking of the swing in 2-dimensional terms, and that is a fatal error.
It’s not as bad conceptually as, say, looking at the swing as ending at impact, which is how many golfers (including the best) injure themselves getting into an impact position they think is correct while not looking at and recognizing that the swing continues to the finish – impact is merely where the ball is struck, but the swing continues, everyone must agree.
While idly browsing through swing clips from various years, I came upon a range session I’d had in May of 2015, which was as I mentioned previously the year the MCS Classic Golf Swing model was born.
While watching how I set up to the ball at that time and looking at my arm attitude, I nearly fell out of my chair – I may have been left-dominant but it was so slight, I was closer to the optimal setup routine, stance and motion than I would be for years.
I won’t be posting any irons swings from Monday, simply because I can barely stand to look at them, so they’re not worth posting.
I had said that it would take a little time for my swing to settle down after fixing a huge setup and mechanics flaw (swinging with a left-dominant arm), and I’m in that in-between place at the moment but not complaining.
