You Must Swing DOWN & Not Forward With The Golf Swing


Wishing everyone a safe and Merry Christmas Day!

I’m not saying you can’t swing forward, but that is not mechanically-optimal and can actually lead to mechanical-correctness issues, which of course means you’re sacrificing performance and raising injury risk.

One of the main issues of trying to swing at the target with the golf swing is that the ball is located near the bottom of the swing arc… so trying to direct force and energy at the target with the club when the ball is nowhere near that point means wasted energy and inefficiency.

When You Get Both Sides Sync’d – The Leverage Is Huge

It boggles my mind that, whatever I’ve managed to do with my golf swing motion in the past 13.5 years since beginning my research, my longest drives and highest club speeds may actually still lie before me.

At 48 going on 49 (next March), that is pretty heady stuff. However, knowing what I’ve been working on and the breakthroughs I’ve made with my own motion to get even closer yet to the MCS Golf Swing model theory – it could be true, even with the decline brought on by Father Time.

Wow… After A Month Of “New Feels,” Effortless Swings

Update On DJ’s Personal Swing

There is a process, I’ve found, with making lasting improvements to one’s motion in the golf swing – and of course, I’m talking about mechanically-correct motion, because anything that is not mechanically-correct is a hazard to one’s health.

Dunaway’s Action WAS Right-Dominant BUT Also Used Leading Side Leverage

Dunaway’s Action WAS Right-Dominant BUT Also Used Leading Side Leverage..

That much should be pretty self-evident if you think about it, but it’s also something that can be overlooked.

Aha – Jiu Jitsu Lesson Just Improved My Leverage Conception In MCS Golf Swing

I may have mentioned a little while back that I’ve just begun to study Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

While I’m just getting into it (I started at the behest of my good friend The Welshman, who is enthused, to say the least), I’m already getting some valuable insights on the nature of leverage and how important the hips & legs are in producing the same.

I Went Back And Looked @ My Baseball Swing From 2013

A side item in these quiet days before the new season gets underway in 2019:

Back in the summer of 2013, I was toying with the idea of putting out the “MCS Baseball” swing model, because I searched and searched and searched on Youtube for any model to which I could compare what I felt was the proper action.

**Sigh** – As With Everything… Right There To Be Seen

Of course, I saw exactly what I figured I would see when I decided to take a look at Mike Austin’s swing down the line with regard to tight or not pivot top position.

Of course… because as with everything that you study intently, the things you need are right there to be seen – you just have to see them.

Why The Tighter Pivot Increases Power

I’ve been going over the mechanics, not content to merely say, “based on what I’ve been researching, the tighter pivot gives you increased power.”

It’s nice to know, but the reasons for this would be helpful to those struggling with issues that they might not think has to do with a pivot that’s less than the tightest they can make it.

It Took A Year To Transform “Feel” To “Real” On The Tight Pivot

I could consider the 2018 season to have been a complete waste of time if I went by my posting from December of last year where I said I’d found my “leverage niche.” using the SwingRite training tool in my off-time.

The Tigher Pivot Was Staring Me In The Face For Years

First of all, I would like to make it very clear to anyone who has been reading my postings the past couple of weeks – this is pretty advanced stuff.

I had an email conversation with a gentleman just on the past weekend, and we correspond quite a bit on the swing, where he suggested that my focus on the right side of the swing might cause people to turn early or over-rotate, and I agreed, with one caveat:
