It may be counter-intuitive to some or most, but the best thing you can try to do with your golf swing is to “swing the hands,” and not the club head.
I wrote about Cameron Champ last year after seeing him in the ’17 U.S. Open, and he’s going to be playing on the PGA Tour next season – which means you may see him pretty soon with the wrap-around season!
Now, there’s no reason that a kid hitting it 350 yards carry distance would need any more distance, but find me one person, even among the longest hitters, who didn’t want more distance with their swings.
I’ll leave out the parts with which I disagree (such as the “swing left” stuff and the “use the ground” of course, because everyone does, unless they’re levitating), but if you look at big driver Jon Rahm, a lot of what he’s saying goes hand-in-hand with my MCS Golf Swing philosophy or principles.
I have said – and will be showing in the upcoming “MCS – The Kinetic Chain” video – how you can create excellent positive Attack Angle (hitting “up” into the ball with the Driver) when you are properly set up with the MCS Golf Swing model.
That of course is how the modern driver is supposed to be utilized.
Today however, I was working on my positioning to get the deepest possible “drop” in my “Drop & Pop,” which makes it easier to shape a draw if you’re a natural fader, and the results were… interesting!
I must confess, I’ll never lose that drive for the maximum distance and power, because I’ve always been a power swinger.
What I set out to figure out, around ten years ago, was how to make that power more consistent and repeatable, so that I could keep the ball in play and, even better, out of trouble with missed shots.
Now, I’m not saying that the MCS “Ultimate Leverage” swing model will make you a PGA Tour player. There is more to the game of golf than just the swing.
You have to factor in course management (John Daly, great swinger, not-so-great manager), short game, putting and of course heart and grit.
I can’t give a player the intangibles, I deal with the swing. But if you have a solid swing, then your success or failure on the golf course will rest on things other than the swing.
