Stable Head + Getting “Deep” = Leverage

You’ve heard me discussing the aspects of leverage and how to maximize it on the down swing with Fluffy a.ka. TFerguson, and let me show you in my own swing how I do it.

First, you have the stable head on the back pivot, enabled by the MCS Golf Swing’s right-biased “Leaning ‘A'” tilt and proper hip action.

New Skype With Fluffy The Man – “Drop The Shoulder”

I am posting another full Skype session with Fluffy a.k.a. T.Ferguson, from yesterday.

There is more to the title, but the essential element I got out of what Fluffy can do to get more power out of his natural swing action is the “dropping the shoulder” action that goes hand-in-hand with the aggressive move into the leading side.

Ben Hogan And The Classic Swing Pivot

I’ve been watching the action in the final round of the Open Championship, and it seems that, while he’s hit a couple of shaky shots to end his front 9, Tiger Woods incredibly seems on course to bagging his 15th major tropy.

The “One Major Move” Is Even Simpler Than I Thought

I said in last year’s video on the golf swing, “E = MCS,” that the mechanics of the back swing pivot could be broken down into a very simple concept, which I termed the “One Major Move.”

When I began to look at my own “plane” with the left arm at the top and the down swing “slot,” I discovered that not only is the “One Major Move” the best way to make your pivot, it’s also the best way to swing on plane when you do it the way the model dictates.

The Masters Day 4 – Patrick Reed Brings It Home

(Updated At Bottom With Swing Analysis)

This is likely the best shot Rory McIlroy will have to complete his Grand Slam quest in some time, because how many times will he be 1 shot back of the lead through 2 holes of the Final Round of the Masters?

Not saying he won’t get it done if he falls short today, but you only get so many chances and he’s in prime position to do it.

If you’re looking to see how much power and speed you can generate when you get a proper down swing release action from the “3 To 9” phase, John Daly is still an all-time example.

For those of you looking for that awesome leverage demonstrated by the likes of Jack Nicklaus in his heyday, I have good news for you.

It can be naturally produced with the simple equation I’ve given you in the post title.

Greg Norman Describes Ben Hogan’s (And The MCS) Perfect Pivot

I found the following clip on Youtube yesterday, and I can’t believe that no one ever talks about the mechanics of the greatest driver ever on the PGA Tour in the persimmon age.

Greg Norman, when you combine distance, power and accuracy and longevity, is considered to be that man.
