The “Pressure Plate” Action Powers The Classic Swing

dj finish rev diagI don’t know if I ever shared these swings from June 19th, 2019, but the reverse diagonal view of the driver swing using the MCS Classic Golf Swing model shows very vividly the “Pressure Plate” concept of the pivot actions.

You don’t need muscle & gym training to swing a golf club with speed, this you know from me, who hasn’t seen the inside of a gym since ’02 (and it shows, I know).

8 Iron & 5 Iron Swings From October 2019 (Video)

dj 5i impI have some irons on video from the same day in October of 2019, which was the last day I shot video on the MCS Classic Golf Swing model before switching to working on the MCS Post-Modern model in the off-season.

Again, not over the moon with these after 18 months to work on my action for both models, but as good as I was swinging at the time.

My MCS Golf Swing – Not. Even. Close. (And Video)

dj setup dtl driverI am putting up some swings I’ve never shared, from my last day hitting balls in October 2019 when my MCS Classic Golf Swing action was probably the closest to the optimal model I’ve come.

The swing video is just for interest’s sake, as many of you reading this will have been watching my swing in the “E = MCS” video & the other two in the series. Continue reading

Recapping The MCS Classic Golf Swing – From The Ground Pt 1

tight elbow on pivotThanks to all new readers (and old) who’ve purchased your downloads of the MCS Classic Golf Swing video, your support of the blog is much appreciated!

I thought that since the lockdown in our area has shut down the local courses & driving ranges (don’t ask me how one can contract Covid-19 standing on a range ten or more paces from the nearest person in an outdoor setting, because neither I nor anyone else has a clue), I would go over the MCS model from the ground up with some refresher points & logic that either aren’t actually part of video or, if they are, bear repeating.

7i & 4i Down The Line (Been Awhile)

dj 4i top dtlThanks to everyone who has purchased a video download, your support of the site is much appreciated!

It’s been a while since I posted iron swings so I went back to 2019 (so strange to have to go back 2 years since I was on hiatus last year, but here we are), even though I’m pretty sure the action will be visibly different this season.

Reason being, you don’t work on your swing for two years without showing a marked difference, such as my takeaway & down swing planes.

The MCS Classic Swing vs Post-Modern Model

dj top july 03I’ve been going over my swing clips from previous years & have a pretty solid theory (at least from the swing work I’ve been doing during this endless Covid-19 lockdown), that a properly performed MCS Classic Golf Swing motion would differ from the MCS Post-Modern Golf Swing (based on Mike Dunaway’s swing) in only one regard – the pivot action.

This Is Depressing – Justin Rose On Distance Quests & Career Length

RoseThis is rather depressing – according to Justin Rose (and many others for certain), the quest to increase power & distance in golf is going to lead to shortened careers.

This is depressing to me because it means that the golf industry is still mired in the harmful mechanics of swinging in the Modern Golf Swing style, which means that it will shorten careers (Tiger Woods being Exhibit A), but also that it’s something that doesn’t have to happen. Continue reading

Bryson DeChambeau’s Ben Hoganesqe Pivot

I haven’t taken a look at Bryson DeChambeau’s swing of late because I had put the blog on hiatus, however I wanted to share this even though I wasn’t going to be looking at golfers’ swings going forward.

This particular swing action Bryson’s however is nearly a perfect imitation of what I’ve called Ben Hogan’s “Perfect Pivot” action.

What My Swing Looked Looked Like Driving 330 Yards (2018)

My readers who were here during 2018 will remember the numbers I worked on compiling with some trips to TGX Golf lab to show how powerful a leveraged swing could be, even at the age of 48 (which I was at the time).

Back then, I presented some driving stats which showed how a positive attack angle, optimal launch angle & spin rate could get a lot more out of a swing than one without those metrics.

The 3 Different Swing Models

I have said for awhile that the swing model presented by the Mikes Austin & Dunaway is a Classic Swing Model because of the free hip action as contrasted with the Modern Golf Swing model which uses back-breaking shoulder-turning against a restricted hip turn.
