I am pleased to see new traffic at the site in recent days, and thanks to everyone who is supporting the site and the cause with your visits and downloads of the MCS material!

On that note, for both new and old readers, let me emphasize the importance of that “One Major Move” key to the swing, while you watch the videos and perform your drills.

So, “Dropping” Your Club Into The “Slot” Is Easy…

It’s easy when you’re in the proper position to do so.  It is much easier than spending endless time on the range trying to groove a new manipulation to your swing.

In fact, I’m of the opinion that no one ever really changes their swing when they do it right – they change something in their setup and swing the same way.

The Leading Side “Pull” Should Be Built-In – No Need Think About It

I’ve talked about the golf down swing consisting of a “pull” and “push” sequence, but it could be misleading, so I’ll clarify the first part about the “pull” aspect – it is or should be built-in from your position, back swing pivot and top position.

Think “Swinging Into A Wall” – But It’s Not There…

The problem you get with the way a lot of people are swinging on television, aside from the fact that the result is very unsightly, is that they’re swinging at the ball (especially with the Driver) as if they’re hitting a wall with a hammer but forgetting it’s not actually there.

Luke List – How About That Swing?

If you want to see what I would call a great swing on the PGA Tour (because I don’t say that about many swings in this Modern Golf Swing era), I got a look at Luke List this week.

Use Your Kettle Bell “One Exercise” To Be Like Mike Dunaway

Still under the weather with the flu & luckily have this piece I was saving for a rainy day…

I’ll tell you all what got me to the point where I can emulate Mike Dunaway’s near-perfect down swing leverage and low-heel impact position – it’s the Kettle Bell “One Exercise” that I gave you all in “EMCS2 – The Follow Up” video.

Another “Most People Get It Wrong” Move – Extension

If you are struggling with your down swing, it’s got to be a very possible things you’re doing incorrectly.

There is, for example, the tendency to try to “hit” the ball from the top of the back swing, but the problem is that you didn’t get to the top the same way.

So, trying to go straight down to the ball from the top leads to the “over the top” move.

A Very Good Point On The “Drop” & “Lag”

I got a very good question from Terry yesterday in the previous posting, where he asked:

DJ, when you say,

” And this (the right elbow having dropped to the hip) is the point where the energy you’ve stored in your right arm and the cocked wrists will release the club down into and through impact.”

Are you actively holding the angle and dropping the rear shoulder into position? Or are you starting the release from the top ie Nicklaus ” you cant release the club to early as long as you are moving into your left side.”

The Down Move – Stored Energy

There is a reason that the late Harvey Penick’s quote about the down swing’s first move (it’s all one move from the top to the finish, really, but there are stages to it when you break it down) is the same as how I describe it in the “E = MCS” video and why Moe Norman’s “Master Move” as he described it is the same as mine and Penick’s…

And that’s because… it’s the best way to swing efficiently due to the energy you’re storing on the way down, to be released into the bottom, what I call the “Pop” in the “Drop & Pop.”
