The Tilted Biased Address Will Flatten/Shallow Your Swing Plane

There are so many good reasons to have the biased address setup – first and foremost, it’s the only one that is mechanically-optimal, because if the head is not supposed to move around during the swing, then it should be at address where it will be at impact.

That’s already been established, but here’s another benefit – with the biased address setup, those with steep or over-the-top swing plane issues will find that the setup helps keep the club in the “slot” coming down from Continue reading

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.

Here’s A New “Throwing” Concept – Straight Down

For those of you who have grown accustomed to the “throw release” concept of the power or trailing arm action, here’s one for you in order to really get the Mike Dunaway in your down swing – think “straight down” with your throw.

You all know that I’ve been pursuing Dunaway’s down swing action for my own particular MCS Golf Swing model, and let’s keep in mind that there can be many variations of the MCS swing action.

Whence Ian Woosnam Derived His Power

For those of you who watched golf in the 80’s and 90’s, you’ll remember well the 1991 Masters Champion Ian Woosnam, the “Wee Welshman” who was among the longer drivers in the game whilst standing just 5’5″ tall.

If you look at his swing from above, you can see that it wasn’t just his great Classic Golf Swing action that gave him power, it was the tight and leveraged action within that model.

Video – Driver From Wednesday (1st Set)

Here is a video clip of two angles I took with the Driver swing, and this is from the 1st set of swings before I unfathomably changed my setup slightly – the 1st set, I nailed it.

One thing I always look for, because I coined Ben Hogan’s action the “floating pivot,” is a stable head on the back swing, but if you really want to unlock leverage and power whilst preserving accuracy and stability, you want as stable a head throughout the entire swing for a true “floating pivot.”

I Actually Did It Yesterday (2nd Set Of Swings)

WAX Nation, near-tragedy averted!

I actually nearly deleted the first set of swings I had made yesterday and that would have been… not good…

I had come home with two sets of swings with because I moved to another, quieter part of the range to get some last swings in before I went home, and I only looked at the 2nd set, thinking they’d be the better ones.

I Was “This Close!!!” Updated

Update – I actually did “get it,” but I had two sets of swings recorded and looked at the wrong one before posting.  Full details in the July 25 posting. /update

I’ve talked about my obsession with swinging as close to I can in accordance with the MCS Golf Swing model.

While adding the “full body” aspect to the right-only swing action from my last session postings, I came oh-so-close.

Xtreme Leverage Pt II – Driver

Not much to say today as I pretty much laid it out in yesterday’s posting, so here is the Driver swing shown from the same two angles.

This is as extreme as I can go, swinging with the right arm and hand only with the hips & legs, but in doing so, I also proved that the swing is indeed a whole-boy motion.

Xtreme Leverage – Never So Much Power With So Little Effort

I’ve told you all about the challenges of swinging right-handed while being left-handed, the biggest one for me being the ability to swing with a right-dominant motion.

Today was an auspicious day for me, as I finally got a years-long flaw in my setup fixed this week, and right after that – bang – I was able to make right-dominant swings.

The Search For The Swing… Why MCS Is So Effective

Note: I’ll begin this post with some general musing about models and technique, but the main point of this writing will be halfway down, after “The Point About MCS.”

As you all know, I’ve been obsessed with finding what I would call the “optimal” golf swing model for nearly 15 years now.
