Modern Golf Now Using The Shot Put As Their “Swing” Model?

I asked a rhetorical question the other day if a baseball swing is “using the ground” in the same manner the Modern Golf Swing proponents say you get power by leaving the ground.

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!

Save Your Knees (Proof Of My Contention Re: Tiger Woods’ Left Knee)

Thanks to Welshman for finding and forwarding the clip below.

I have said for years and years that what wrecked Tiger Woods’ left knee (he’s had at least four surgeries on it, beginning back even before he turned pro) was the planted-heel pivot method of the Modern Golf Swing.

Even More Science On The Back & Pivot! (Video)

I know that many  people don’t delve into the comments (and I don’t blame you, from what I usually see in the comments sections of other websites), so for those of you who remember my posting on the spine and twisting from last summer (spoiler: don’t do that), here’s a great video from John Vickers, CSCS, of the Golf Swing BMI on that same subject.

More Science On The Proper Pivot (Video)

Happy New Year everyone!  I got this video below from DK (great find as always, DK!), showing that golf science is slowly coming into play in a real way, or at least I hope.

Incredibly, this video only has 2,700 views, when it should be required viewing for anyone purporting to be a golf swing “guru,” biomechanics or kinesiology expert in golf mechanics.

Trackman Proves What MCS & The Greatest Swingers Already Know

I got an excellent couple of links from DKondo yesterday when we spoke on Skype for about an hour on the swing, to some Youtube videos.

They show Trackman in the process of proving the MCS Golf Swing theory, and what we’ve been talking about for years here – that the proper impact spine angle is rightward tilting rather than the left-biased or vertical spine junk that began with the Modern Golf Swing madness.

This Is Cool – Back Injury Researcher Has A Classic Golf Swing Model

There is a university not to far from where I live, by the name of the University of Waterloo, that is home to Dr. Stuart McGill, a professor emeritus there, about whom Welshman has been telling me over the summer.

I haven’t had time to fully investigate him, having been busy with the “E = MCS” video and now the follow-up material, but I went to check him out today at Welshman’s urging, and some of you will love this…

The Modern Swing Must Go

modern-golferOriginally posted at DJ Watts Golf on March 13, 2013.

I don’t know any other way to put it, but I can’t wait for the Modern Golf Swing era to end.

It is harmful because it doesn’t use mechanically-sound principles.

There’s no other way to put it.

Or I can put it this way:
