MCS Golf Swing Action = “Quiet Leverage”

I slowed down three separate swings that I shot last spring when I was producing the “E = MCS” swing video, to illustrate what I have talked about regarding “quiet” action in the golf swing.

A “quiet” golf swing means exactly that, in that you aren’t jumping, lunging or diving when swinging a club.

Speed Training – The SwingRite For The 3rd Lever

Now that I’ve come to the end of my development of the MCS Golf Swing model, I can concentrate on helping everyone hone their own version of this swing model, and today I’d like to address the 3rd Lever action.

Watch Dunaway’s “3 Levers” In Action (Plus The Right-Biased Setup)

I have loved the swing gif. of a Mike Dunaway swing for years since I made it from a video clip showing his model in motion, and here’s another reason – you can see clearly the “3 Levers” at work in his down swing.

You can watch the three separately and the reason Dunaway was so effortless in his action is because he synced them flawlessly.

Use The “One Exercise” For The “Dunaway Down Swing”

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.

On Leverage & The 3 Levers

As I always do, I’m going to post little snippets or previews to the work I’ve gotten done on the upcoming “EMCS2 – The Follow Up” video, and today’s offering is on the nature of Leverage and the “3 Levers” concept of a mechanically-correct golf swing.

If You’re Looking For Power – BYOKB (Bring Your Own Kettle Bell!)

I have always been pretty good at generating power, most likely due to having participated in half a dozen different sports in my life (organized soccer, baseball, hockey, track & field, basketball and volleyball in school and then golf as an adult) and having to learn proper motion in all of them.

Leverage Is Leverage – Don’t Be Fooled By The “Lighter” Equipment Argument

I have made an issue of how modern technology has made ball-striking much easier, especially with the metal woods and getting the ball in play off the tee with the shoe-box-sized driver heads and lower-spinning, longer flight balls.

One thing that has happened is that you’ll hear Modern Golf Swing proponents saying that “the lighter equipment has changed the way you swing” a golf club, which makes no sense at all.

Using the Body & Not The Arms (Updated)

batmcsOriginally Post April 16, 2015 – very relevant with the upcoming “EMCS2 – Follow Up” video, updated at Bottom

If you are wondering how to build your speed and power in a golf swing, the solution does not necessarily lie in the gym and building more muscle.

That is something you need to do if your swing is not mechanically-correct and you would rather go that route instead of simply improving your technique.

The “One Exercise” Field Testing – Success

I mentioned that I was giving the “One Exercise” to various people to test out so see if it helped their personal issues with building a fully MCS golf swing, and I am pleased say that my prediction has borne out.

Whatever the issue is, if you perform the “One Exercise” for either the back swing or down swing, you will see a very quick and dramatic increase in mechanical performance, and I can’t wait for you all who’ve reserved the coming “EMCS2 – The Follow Up” video to try it and see for yourselves.

Another Theory Proven – I Took A Month Off…

I hadn’t swung a club at a ball in about a month when I got together with Welshman today to show him the “One Exercise” that I’ve devised for the training of just about anything you need with regards to the swing.

I’ve said that it works for both the back swing and the down swing, and with Welshman, it was his down swing and early shoulder turn that has been bedeviling him, in addition to a lateral head move which would cause him to top the ball (swing bottom moves forward and bad things happen).
