The “Pressure Plate” Action Powers The Classic Swing

dj finish rev diagI don’t know if I ever shared these swings from June 19th, 2019, but the reverse diagonal view of the driver swing using the MCS Classic Golf Swing model shows very vividly the “Pressure Plate” concept of the pivot actions.

You don’t need muscle & gym training to swing a golf club with speed, this you know from me, who hasn’t seen the inside of a gym since ’02 (and it shows, I know).

Bryson DeChambeau’s Ben Hoganesqe Pivot

I haven’t taken a look at Bryson DeChambeau’s swing of late because I had put the blog on hiatus, however I wanted to share this even though I wasn’t going to be looking at golfers’ swings going forward.

This particular swing action Bryson’s however is nearly a perfect imitation of what I’ve called Ben Hogan’s “Perfect Pivot” action.

Putting More Ben Hogan In My MCS Pivot – WOW!!

I wasn’t disgusted with my form swinging the club after 5 weeks off when I spent a couple of days in Chicago two weeks ago and had the opportunity to hit balls at Medinah CC courtesy of my host Cory C, but let’s say I wasn’t happy about it.

Having Looked At The Trailing Heel/Impact – Looking At The Head

I spent a great deal of time this season making sure of the concept of the trailing heel at impact, which I’ve resolved to my satisfaction.

Now, I am looking at one more thing that I have had my eye on for some time.

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!

My Favorite PGA Tour Player Swing – Luke List

On this PGA Championship moving day, I thought I’d look back at a particular golf swing of a player currently T4 going into Round 3..

With all of my personal angst regarding finding and building an “optimal” golf swing, I would like to stress in this posting that “optimal” simply means to me, the best possible swing action you can make with regards to efficiency, speed production and accuracy/consistency.

That doesn’t mean that a swing that isn’t “optimal” is bad – when I say a swing is mechanically-sound, but not optimal, I mean that I fully endorse a swing action like that but that it could be even better.

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.
