I’ve been troubled by something this entire year while trying to swing along the lines of the MCS Golf Swing model I finalized two years ago.
I also released the MCS Golf Swing eBook1st Edition last year with the intention of quickly editing and releasing a Final Edition, and I’m very happy that I haven’t yet done so, as I was waiting until I’d finished looking into certain things.
I want to show everyone who is right-dominant or not, how effective and powerful it is when you maximize the right arm action in the down swing.
I haven’t yet got out to see if I can complete that last step of my personal swing journey, where I just last week managed to isolate the purely right arm action of the pivot and swing, to the full-body yet right-dominant action.
If you are looking for a great example of how someone can generate power with a short back swing and proper leverage evidenced by a low trailing heel impact, then look no further than one Tony Finau.
Yes, he’s a very tall player with long limbs (levers), but when you look at how ridiculously short his back swing is and how effortlessly he’s leveraging the club, you will realize that Finau could be monstrous-long, a good deal longer than he already is, with an adjustment or two.
I like to share uplifting stories, and you’ll remember WAX Nation that I mentioned to Fred Greene during our interview for his “Golfsmarter”podcast that when people tell me that I’ve helped them keep playing or begin playing golf again after back issues or other, it makes it all worth while.
I’ve corresponded for a time with a PGA of America instructor out in Arizona, and earlier in the week he emailed me with a great story about the MCS Golf Swing.
I wrote a few years back that Rory McIlroymight have discovered the key to increasing power through technique when he was spotted letting his leading heel come up during his back swing, but it turned out not to be a permanent thing.
Now, it seems he might be back on a right track, with his apparent discovery that the hips and shoulder are connected.
Here’s what I saw when I went looking for Brooks Koepka’s6 mph decrease in club head velocitybetween 18″ pre-impact to impact, and it should be plain to see for anyone who analyzes motion.
I’ve said before, been saying for years, actually, that when you squat into the address you will restrict hip turn, and when you restrict hip turn on the back swing, your hips will reach impact position before the upper body.
