I was looking forward to getting back out to the range next week to both test-drive my Mike Dunaway-inspired “Post-Modern Swing” model mechanics as well as investigate the possible exact same-ness of the MCS Classic & Post Modern Golf Swing models with the exception of the pivot action.
That will all have to wait as we’re now under a stricter Stay At Home order which has extended to immediate closure of golf facilities, possibly until late May.
I don’t know exactly when it will get underway, however I will be conducting a site re-design over the next few weeks/months as I prepare to restart the blog for the upcoming season.
If you aren’t following the site, you may come here and find a “Coming Soon” notice with nothing else to see. That will simply be my having had to temporarily (for a few hours) work on the site and having had to take it offline to do so.
Wishing WAX Nation & new visitors a safe & Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Not exactly the year that anyone anticipated or wanted, but it’s nearly over and the future awaits us.
For those of you who’ve been re-reading the old material & inquiring about the blog – it will return to active status in 2021, although I don’t have a hard date set for resumption.
Here’s how things stand at the moment: Continue reading
After maintaining golf swing blogs since 2007, I’ve decided after much thought that I have nothing more to say at this time about the golf swing that would justify continuing.
As far as loose ends:
I’ve made good use of the 2019 WAX Golf fundraising drive already – after a lifetime of PC usage and years of Android smartphone usage, I’ve sprung for an iPhone with which to shoot all of my 2019 swing clips!
At this point, I’m not very impatient with the fact that my cracked ribs are still too painful (translation: not yet healed) to allow me to swing, because the place where I was to test-drive the new MCS Golf Swing of mine… has collapsed beneath the weight of a record snowfall.
Update: For those who have passed on well-wishes, I have been put on a couple of inhalers and the likely culprit is asthma, which wouldn’t be a huge shock considering I’ve had chronic bronchitis most of my lift. Such are things, moving on!
I was planning on getting into the Dome this week or the next, to get a little taste of what the 2019 DJ Swing was going to look and feel like, and I hope to still get out next week.
The delay is a health-induced one – I mentioned being under the weather during the Christmas season, but things have been a little more serious.
Just a note that the blog is not going anywhere, and that if you find all of the posts before a certain time have disappeared, no cause for alarm!
I will be removing most of my historical posts, as I do from time to time, either because they are out-dated or because they are clogging up the feed. The most relevant and popular posts will be re-posted once I’ve a chance to review or update them.
I have been working on my MCS Golf Swing model since the season began again, and the first half-dozen sessions I’ve had were just to try to tune my swing to the optimal model’s stance and mechanics.
I did get into the 180’s in ball speed mph last summer once I was into the swing of things, but of course that’s after a few weeks of work, so I knew I wouldn’t be that high yet just getting into the season.
I would give that advice to anyone who is playing regular golf and has any pain or nagging soreness issues.
In fact, and perhaps it’s because I have scoliosis and am very careful about hurting my back, I always listen to what my body is telling me when it comes to pain or soreness.
