Natural Leverage – So Much More Effective Than Muscle

I’ve compared the leverage of a proper golf swing in years past to that of a judo throw – you can throw someone bigger and heavier than yourself to the ground with relative ease if you know how to leverage the move.

In the same vein, I can affirm that, just as with a judo throw, you can be much more effective swinging your golf club with natural leverage than with brute muscle force.

Light Club Swing Should = Heavy Club Swing

I’ve said that the scourge of Modern Golf Swing instruction and practice is that people who have no business injuring themselves swinging feather-weight clubs in the modern age are doing so.

I mean, how do you hurt yourself swinging today’s driver?

The Math Says I Hit 130 MPH Club Speed @ 45.5 Yrs

Before I get to my point, I know all about the SSR and the issues with accurate club speed.

I wasn’t measuring the club speed because I only had the Swing Speed Radar device which, again, I knew to be unreliable for measuring golf club impact speed.

How To Complicate A Golf Swing

I’ve finally figured out what it is that has certain swingers jumping off of their leading foot through impact.

I know, I’ve already said it has to do with them not shifting their weight to the leading foot on the down swing, but there’s more at play here than just that one thing.

If you asked me what the issue is in a nutshell, I’d say, “Let’s go for a spin.”

Driving The Ball 350 Yards With My Left Arm

You may ask me why I have fought so hard to fix my left-dominant right-handed golf swing if I could drive the ball 350 yards and beyond doing it that way.

In a word, because I hate disasters.

Are You Swinging Leading Arm-Dominant?

Moving on from the discussion of what swinging with the leading arm dominant actually means – what problems can arise when swinging with the left arm in a right-handed swing?

And more importantly, are you a non-cross person yet suspect you’re swinging with the wrong arm dominant?

Cross-Dominance In A Golf Swing

One of the reasons I’m excited about my swing research this season is that I am confident (until proof either way) that I’ve solved my cross-dominance issue.

In fact, I am fairly certain (because I’ve always been cross-dominant) that I’ve actually never performed a proper golf swing, mechanically.

Leverage – Driver DTL From July 2018

It looks with the forecasts that I will likely be able to get out to do some swing work either this coming week or at latest the next week, so I have a driver swing here I’ve gone back to inspect.

I’ve said that I can’t bear to look at any of my swing clips since I’ve made significant improvements to my MCS swing mechanics – the model itself hasn’t changed since my “E = MCS” video in 2017, but my swing sure has changed for the better since then.

This Classic Golf Swing driver below was a few weeks before my trip to the TXG facility to get some numbers and doesn’t actually make my eyes bleed.

Young Tiger Woods & Setup Issues

Just as the 3 most important things in real estate or property are Location, Location & Location, you will always hear my belief that the 3 most important parts of the golf swing are Setup, Setup and Setup.

Here is a driver swing from a young Tiger Woods, if you’ll allow me to point out things that would have concerned me at the time.

More Modern Swing Analysis Failure – On “Using The Ground/Vertical Lift”

**Another Submission From The “Modern Golf Analysis Fail Chronicles,” Originally posted August 22, 2019**

I made a point in a comment about Justin Thomas having very low Angle of Attack despite his “flying foot” which is supposed to add “vertical lift” or to be “using the ground,” and I said that I’d check to make sure.
