Keys To Power Leveraging – The Spine & Shoulder Tilt Are Key

You’ve seen that despite the Modern Golf Swing’s insane mechanical theory (which is dead wrong, by the way) that you best generate power by restricting the hip turn and torquing the lower back, there are still fundamentals that even the MGS proponents can’t eliminate.

A Summer Of “Low Impact Heel” Investigation Now Bears Fruit

I mentioned in an earlier posting that I had made several new discoveries in the subtleties within the standard model of the MCS Golf Swing.

I suppose the early days seemed so much more fruitful than the past couple of years have been, due to the diminishing number of things to investigate and clarify.

Miscellaneous Findings Re: The MCS Golf Swing

As you all know, I’ve been looking into various aspects of the MCS Golf Swing model to ensure that there is a blueprint for producing one’s desired “optimal” golf swing within it.

There are a few things I’ve come across that could have been surprising but were, on second thought, absolutely logical, and that’s what you want – to be able to understand/explain the reasoning behind “how” and “why.”

Fascinating Stuff – Head Stability & Impact Trailing Heel Link

I’m getting closer to resolving both issues of the head stability (shift or no shift?) and the trailing heel impact position, and I made a link today between the two, believe it or not.

It’s all due to the way the body is built to move and, from where I can see things at the moment, there is a direct link between having a flat or low trailing heel at impact versus one that is higher and whether or not your head shifts on the back pivot.

Golf Swing Theory – The Search For Truth Is Not A Straight Road

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 eBook 1st 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.

Setup Allows You To Just Swing “And Let The Ball Get In The Way”

This is the concept that the Iron Byron uses, or any other hitting or swinging machine.

The Iron Byron does not “swing at the ball,” rather it just swings the club attached to its arm and the ball simply gets in the way.

Setup Looking Better! 7i & 4i Swings (Video – 2 Angles)

I have been working on my setup with regards to the down the line aspect and I nailed it on some swings yesterday, with a little more work to do to get my regular setup as good as the best ones.

Athletic Instinct Proves The MCS Tilted Setup

I’m still not ready to show video of my swings, because believe it or not, I am moving ever closer to the optimal model and even Tuesday’s swings will likely be obsolete by the next range session.

Actually, let’s change “likely” to “definitely,” because I already know my adjustment for that and that it will change my address appearance (down the line more than anything) and likely the entire swing and impact, but that’s for another day.

Tony Finau – “Short Back Swing, Low Impact Heel Power” Exhibit A

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.

Matt Wolff’s Excellent “3 To 9” – But About That Left Foot Action

If you have been looking at repeat NCAA Div 1 Champion Matt Wolff’s swing, you’re sure to be distracted by his funky-looking back swing and top position, but when you look at the part that really matters, it’s pretty darned good.

I’ll show you his down swing after the club has reached the plane of a more orthodox-looking swing, and you can see an excellent “3 O’Clock” position (other than the high trailing heel, but that’s an optimal matter, not a mechanically-unsound one), and a pretty good impact:
