Using The Ground Isn’t Squatting Then Jumping Or “Driving The Legs…”

I had someone with whom I’m working on his swing ask me, when I told him that squatting in the setup will interfere with hip turn, that it seemed to him that this was what I was doing during the down swing.

Swing Video – Driver 2 Angles + DTL 7 & 4 Irons

Well, after viewing and editing the video clips from Friday’s Driver and a couple of irons swings, all I can say is “Wow!”

What a difference a setup adjustment can make visually, especially when I watch the swings down the line.

Whence Ian Woosnam Derived His Power

For those of you who watched golf in the 80’s and 90’s, you’ll remember well the 1991 Masters Champion Ian Woosnam, the “Wee Welshman” who was among the longer drivers in the game whilst standing just 5’5″ tall.

If you look at his swing from above, you can see that it wasn’t just his great Classic Golf Swing action that gave him power, it was the tight and leveraged action within that model.

Missing The Big Point Re: Technique & Injuries

I came across an article on Golf WRX that initially gave me hope that people are trying to prevent injuries by looking at prevention a.k.a. fixing swing techniques that raise the risk of injury.

Mighty Maurice Allen Drives Across Niagara Falls (Classic Swing BTW)

I don’t know how many of you remember John Daly’s attempt to drive a golf ball over the Niagara Falls gorge (in 2005, when he had his reality show “Daly Planet” on the Golf Channel).

tom watson topOriginally Posted Dec 12, 2015.  Re-posted in honor of Tom Watson as he announces his retirement at 69 from Champions Tour major play.

I’ve said before that golf will never be taken seriously as a “sport” (although it was for a brief period during the height of the Tiger Woods era) because it doesn’t follow the same athletic principles.

Gee… The Classic Golf Swing Is “Genius??” Phil Mickelson/Golf Digest

While it’s nice to think that the Classic Golf Swing is genius, it’s simply the proper way to swing a golf club.

However, if Phil Mickelson is a genius for swinging that way, then maybe all of you MCS Golf Swing followers owe yourselves a round of applause!

Reverse View – Watch The Hogan Hip & Leg Action

I want WAX Nation to look at a true, honest-to-goodness Ben Hogan “Perfect Pivot” action (honest to goodness because it’s the man himself) and compare it to the action I had yesterday.

As my long-time readers know, I looked at Hogan’s pivot action back in 2014 and discovered to my amazement that no one on TV or in the magazines actually knew or could describe what he was doing!

Here’s Why I Do What I Do – PGA Instructor’s Email To Me…

I like to share uplifting stories, and you’ll remember WAX Nation that I mentioned to Fred Greene during our interview for his “Golfsmarter” podcast that when people tell me that I’ve helped them keep playing or begin playing golf again after back issues or other, it makes it all worth while.

I’ve corresponded for a time with a PGA of America instructor out in Arizona, and earlier in the week he emailed me with a great story about the MCS Golf Swing.
