Don’t panic, now – there’s nothing new in the MCS model from the “E = MCS”video, as I said there was no further simplification of this model possible afterward.
What I have found is the “key” in the setup that I built for the MCS Golf Swing, ending the long journey from the first crucial piece back in 2014 when I hit upon the right-biased and spine tilt being necessary to the optimal swing model.
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.
I have been looking for some examples of how many of the greatest swingers to play pro golf got properly into the leading side and foot through the ball rather than hanging back, and you’ll likely be surprised by some of the names that had a “short-stop slide” at one point in their careers.
I have already pointed out one of the elements of Ben Hogan’s golf swing included in the MCS Golf Swing, of course – it wouldn’t be what it is without the “floating pivot” action (fully mobile hips & legs while the head remains stable, “floating in place”) that is the signature move of the model.
If you get anything out of the MCS Golf Swing theory at all (besides the obvious, that the address position is the foundation of the swing and that the swing is driven by freely pivoting hips & legs), I would hope it is the “3 To 9” concept.
This area is so problematic for most swingers and has become even more so in the Modern Golf Swing era due to the restricted-hip back swing.
Someone from Wax Nation (JS) asked some good questions in a comment on my posting about Mike Dunaway and his superb syncing of his 3 Levers.
I know that many people don’t wade into the comments on sites (which is understandable when you see the level of discourse at times in many sites’ comments sections, but a shame if you’re not following the discussions here at WAX), so I’ll just post on the subject as I think many people might wish to read the clarification.
I have been transforming my own golf swing for years, of course, during the time of my swing research and the one thing I was always looking to emulate was the so-called “Dunaway down swing,” which for me is the extension through the swing bottom with the low trailing heel.
A while back, Jim asked a question about the “hip stall” he noticed in Mickey Wright’s swing, and which everyone talks about in Rory McIlroy’simpact phase, and I had answered back then that it is part of an efficient transfer of power to the ball (“cracking the whip”) that anyone can do with a proper down swing sequence.
