David or DKas I like to call him emailed me on the weekend regarding something he had found in a golf swing book from the 60’s (the Classic Golf Swing era, so you know it’s likely bang-on) called the “Four Magic Moves To Winning Golf.”
We had a discussion on it today before he headed off for his match-play round (I forget what the exact event is, but he’ll enlighten us, I’m sure, when he reads this posting).
I found the video from Mike Dunaway in which he talks about an Impact/Release concept (if you still like and need concepts, they work ’til you don’t need’em!), and it’s very similar to the “Swinging Into A Wall” post from earlier in the month.
So, Uncle JJmentioned it in the comments, but I couldn’t find it at the time, even though I agreed with him on the similarity.
The problem you get with the way a lot of people are swinging on television, aside from the fact that the result is very unsightly, is that they’re swinging at the ball (especially with the Driver) as if they’re hitting a wall with a hammer but forgetting it’s not actually there.
I happened to come across an Instagram sequence of Lexi Thompson’s driver swing this morning while getting ready to resume the work on the “MCS Golf Swing” eBook which I think will be completed sometime this week (update emails have gone out), and she only has 2 swing issues that I can see.
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.
