Proper Address & Mechanics = Stable Head

I do not have a perfect golf swing by any means, but as I’m fond of saying, a model for the golf swing should be… or why is it a model to begin with?

Do we build houses using imperfect models, or do you want the model in theory to be perfect with regards to measurement and scale?

If You Don’t See The Head Shift (Dunaway & Austin)

There are two gifs I would like you to look at, until I get video myself of the optimal MCS swing model, where you’ll see virtually the same action as the two Mikes, Dunaway and Austin.

The reason for that is, they had near-optimal models in the featured swings, and if not for the head shift to the right that you would see viewing these swings face-on, this is exactly the way you want to swing and leverage the club.

Best Long Drive Swings EVER (8 Second Hang Time)

I always like to get a rough indicator of hang time when I launch them especially high and long (and only ever when on line, because who cares low long it flies if it’s going OB?).

So I knew something was going on today when I got home with video.

MCS Long Drive – “Using The Ground” (Video)

You all know that one of my pet peeves on golf swing analysis is the ridiculous “using the ground” excuse the analysts use when they simply have no clue what’s going on and still want to sound knowledgeable about what you’re seeing on your screen.

Simply, launching one or both feet into the air while swinging a golf club does nothing to add speed or power, rather it is an anti-injury move because the swinger is either not using a proper weight shift to the leading foot and/or doesn’t want to damage the leading leg or hip.

Long Drive + “Perfect Pivot” = WOW (Day 2)

OK, you can probably tell I’m having some fun working out the last little details on my long drive swing action, but today was extra fun when I got home to look at the video.

I hit some awesome balls today after struggling through the first half of the bucket, all because I got sloppy with my posture – but when I realized what I was doing and straightened back up to a taller address, it was game, set and match.

DJ’s 1st Swing Clip For 2017! 3 Angles

I have compiled a video clip here, showing what are finally fit-for-video swings with my updated MCS Golf Swing with the dominant “pull” action reduced and with the proper “push” action.

I was able to break down and reassemble my swing so quickly this spring (using the “3 Pillars,” formerly “Dropping The Hammer” concept) because I’ve always had the components, but I needed to really nail down the adjusted address position to accommodate my spinal deformity, and I think you’ll all agree that I finally got there.

June 18th 2005 – April 19, 2017 – The Day I’ve Been Awaiting

I dug my golf clubs out of the closet on a Saturday back in 2005, after watching some of the 3rd round of the U.S. Open (won that year by Michael Campbell of New Zealand), and when I got home from the range, I remarked to my wife that I was going to “figure this out, once and for all…

Those of you who have been reading my blogging on the golf swing (I first began posting back in the late summer of 2007, about two years after that) will know that I had dumped those clubs into the closet, where they’d gathered dust for years, out of frustration with the golf swing.

Another Wax Nation Citizen Drops In

All the way from California, another Wax Nation citizen (whom you’ve probably seen before in the comments section) was travelling and in the area, and took the time to stop in for a visit and a little consult on his swing today.

Fortunately, the weather turned out to be awesome, much warmer than forecast, and a brilliantly sunny morning set things off perfectly.

I’ve Found The Link (1+2+3)

I’ve been holding off saying anything until I was close to performing my personal “perfect swing” mechanical action, which means perfect for myself, and not perfect as in the machine analogy.

But, it’s probably time to give everyone the heads-up, as I’ve always said I don’t hold anything back – I did hint on it, after all, with my “E = MCS” musings during the winter months.

Right Domimant + Left Side, Day 1 – Wow!

It went better than I could have hoped, because this is a very strange and different (for me) move – swinging with leading side leverage AND a right-dominant mechanical action!

I got hold of a visual concept halfway through the session that just worked so beautifully for me, I will eventually share this, because it is awesome.
