The Cross-Dominant Double-Cross Strikes Again

Here’s a deep dive into the nitty-gritty of swing modeling, for those so inclined.

I would say that it was a mistake to have been working on two different swing models last season and prior, but there is a silver lining to that darkness – I may have solved two problems in half the time it might have otherwise taken.

The Last Right-Dominant Puzzle Piece? (Also, No Going Back)

I’ve crossed the Rubicon in a way this week – I’ve been focusing on, breaking down and trying to complete my transition to a right-dominant swing (swinging right-handed, of course) and I can’t go back to the old Classic Golf Swing.

I tried that yesterday at Tracer Golf, because as I was working on the new model, I briefly tried to go back and swing the way I used to, even up to last season and into the autumn with my first forays into the golf simulator world.

The Simplest Swing Action (But Likely Harder To Explain)

If you’re wondering why I’ve been working so long and seemingly without progress on my new swing model, it’s because it’s the simplest action one can make with a mechanically-correct swing model that maximizes both power and accuracy combined.

Post-Two-Month Break – 190 MPH Ball Speed & Nearly 130 MPH Club…

I didn’t get quite get the new model nailed down today on my first foray back to hitting balls at the Tracer Golf facility.

I’ll be honest, however – I loved it every moment of it.

The most joy I’ve had in my swing research over the years have been in those solitary moments on the range or golf course, working on whatever it was I was after, and the process always gave me as much pleasure as the results.

Happy New Year – Back To Work

Happy New Year, WAX Nation!

I took the month of December off swinging or blogging (although I’m always working on the swing at home even when not hitting balls), to enjoy the holiday season with family and friends, but it’s back to work time.

Model Work Nearly There – Complete Overhaul

I had gotten as far as I was going to go with the Classic Golf Swing model on which I’ve been working since 2015.

While it was mechanically-correct, it was either that I wasn’t executing the principles properly or there was something missing.

This Would Be The Greatest Swing Model

I hypothesized a few years ago about my vision of the Classic Golf Swing having the regular pivot action on the back swing, but with a Mike Dunaway-esqe leverage and impact position, which never came to fruition.

After several attempts at it, and a whole summer spent on it, I nearly gave up on it – actually, I did give up on it until this morning when, while going back and forth between the Classic and the Post-Modern, I began to make some very fast Classic pivot swings and then noticed something.

July DTL vs Yesterday (Improvement Notes)

Some of you, I’m sure, look at my swing clip offerings and think, “there’s no change, what’s he talking about?”

I wouldn’t blame you, because one rarely ever makes radical changes to one’s swing when using the exact same model, but I can show you what I see different in my swing from July to yesterday, showing the improvements I’ve made working on my setup and pivot.

The Quiet Power Of Leverage (Diagonal & Reverse Angles)

I was struck today watching the Pro Long Drive World Championship when I had a glance at the Seniors Final, after I’d taken in the Open Final yesterday.

Right off the bat, what I noticed was that the Senior swingers have far better technique than the younger Open competitors, and the reason for this is obvious – the older you get, the higher the risk of injury in something like a high-powered golf swing, so you’d better get mechanically-sound if you don’t want to snap something.

I’ve Done It – Closing In On Optimal (Driver Swings)

Not perfectly executed (a little too wide a stance for perfect), but here is what I expect to see from myself swinging according to the MCS Classic Golf Swing model.

I have never been happier looking at my own swing, and to be honest, these swings are definitely good enough to feature as the swing for an MCS video, finally.
