This of course refers to the insane rationalization the analysts are making trying to explain why certain swingers’ leading feet are flopping and flying all over the place through impact.
I have said – and will be showing in the upcoming “MCS – The Kinetic Chain” video – how you can create excellent positive Attack Angle (hitting “up” into the ball with the Driver) when you are properly set up with the MCS Golf Swing model.
That of course is how the modern driver is supposed to be utilized.
I got an email from a WAX Golf reader who has experience in long driving and is very knowledgeable on biomechanics and the golf swing.
I also used a javelin throw – but silly me, it seems the the way you’re supposed to get power is by emulating the track & field event known as the shot put!
If you can find me another motion better than a baseball swing or javelin throw as an example of leveraging against the ground to swing or throw something, then I’d love to see it.
Another de-bunking here, as I heard a couple of times on the PGA Championship broadcast that players like Justin Thomas get “vertical lift” by having a high trailing heel and having the front foot leave the ground at impact.
Of course, I’ve made my view clear that I think the analysts on TV have no clue why a player does the “flying foot,” so you hear a lot of bunk concerning this.
Basically, Lee hit it left into the water guarding the green, had to drop and made bogey on the hole that measured only 299 yards from the tee box.
We’ve been over the whole nonsensical claim advanced on television that the “Flying Foot Syndrome” golfers – those who can’t keep a stable leading foot through impact – are “using the ground” when they swing.
I got an email from a WAX Nation reader (hey there, R.H.) who had asked me about a video he watched where the “pro” move is to have the hands moving upward at impact, creating a more level or shallower “swing bottom,” to increase consistency in ball-striking.
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.
