Video – Driver From Wednesday (1st Set)

Here is a video clip of two angles I took with the Driver swing, and this is from the 1st set of swings before I unfathomably changed my setup slightly – the 1st set, I nailed it.

One thing I always look for, because I coined Ben Hogan’s action the “floating pivot,” is a stable head on the back swing, but if you really want to unlock leverage and power whilst preserving accuracy and stability, you want as stable a head throughout the entire swing for a true “floating pivot.”

MCS Model Should = Neutral Plane (Why That’s Good)

I took a look at my latest, nearly-there swings right arm only, and again I was struck by how amazingly neutral my swing plane is using the MCS Golf Swing model.

There are of course three types of swing planes – neutral or on-plane, steep and flat, with the neutral one of course being the preferable one, and I’ll tell you why I believe that is so.

Right Arm Dominant Action & Power

I want to show everyone who is right-dominant or not, how effective and powerful it is when you maximize the right arm action in the down swing.

I haven’t yet got out to see if I can complete that last step of my personal swing journey, where I just last week managed to isolate the purely right arm action of the pivot and swing, to the full-body yet right-dominant action.

I’ve Got Something Special For WAX Nation – Closing In On A Million Views As Well!

Before I address today’s topics, I took a look at my site metrics yesterday and was pleased and gratified to see that WAX Golf has passed the 900,000 views mark and will pass One Million Views in the next few weeks!**

** In fact, I would have well over 1 Million views already for WAX Golf but I had it on a different server than the WordPress server for about 4 months in the first year, which views aren’t recorded by my current server.

The Leading Side Action (Left Handed Only)

I’ve been looking for a good left-handed swing action to illustrate the isolated arm swinging the golf club, and I remembered seeing Mike Austin’s demonstration of it in the Pico Rivera video.

Now, I’ve been saying for years, since I finished the MCS Golf Swing model especially, that the only real difference between the Mike Austin swing model and that of MCS is in the stance and head motion during the back pivot.

Question – How Did I Get My Swing Plane & Path To Neutral?

I would say that the things I’ve been showing you over the past few days would illustrate, if there is any such thing, a “neutral” swing plane on the down swing.

That would make sense, considering that if one’s hands are travelling a route that matches the club shaft’s impact plane, and the club itself matches that plane on the way down, that you would call this “neutral.”

More MCS Swing Plane Neat Stuff (Swing’s Not “Perfect” But Looking Good!)

I wrote the other day about having noticed something with regards to the swing plane on a stock Driver swing of mine from the summer.

It was after I had worked on my pivot to tighten it up and improve my own swing plane.

Watching Other Sports Will Show You Proper MCS Technique

I’ve said since my early days in golf swing research and analysis that modern golf instructors and “gurus” seem to be trying to tell people that the rules of athletic motion are somehow different in golf as opposed to other sports.

That of course is so wrong as to be laughable, but I’m not the one trying to sell it, I’m just saying that athletic motion is athletic motion.

Square To Square To Square

If you’ve heard the “Square To Square To Square” bit of jargon in the recent blogs I’ve conducted with Fluffy and you are a little fuzzy on the concept, it’s about having the neutral grip so that you won’t have to manipulate the club face through impact.

 I took a swing from the summer where I got that down pretty well, but then again, if I were to practice every day as a competitive amateur or pro, I’d be looking for this every time.
