Nailing My MCS Now (Just Getting Better & Better)

Well, I went the range today to see if my form would hold up on full-out swings using my new “Big Legs, Little Arms” pivot action with the hips and legs.

I have had a tendency to over-swing and get too long in the back swing pivot, so when I nailed the pivot action according to the model on Friday, I next wanted to see if I could repeat that action swinging for the fences.

Some Irons Gifs – U.S. Open Sunday Thread

Well, it seems I missed quite the day on the links yesterday in day 3 of the U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills!

I will confess that I was up late Friday and early Saturday (to watch some World Cup matches), and that by the time I got around to watching the leaders tee off in the afternoon, I was more interested in watching the insides of my eyelids than the tournament.

DJ’s MCS Swing For 2018 – Driver Gifs

I have some irons down the line as well that I will include in a second post, but for now, here are some Driver gifs from the four standard angles.

I will be honest – I got away from the pure Ben Hogan-inspired “Perfect Pivot” action that I developed after studying his pivot.

13 Years Ago Tomorrow… The Road To MCS (I Nailed It)

I had no idea when I took my golf clubs out of the closet for the first time in years that when I got home that afternoon, I would be determined to “figure it out for myself” if no one could show me what a proper golf swing was.

And by “proper,” I meant a golf swing that was what I can now quantify as being mechanically-correct (which was impossible to get from someone else in the age of the Modern Golf Swing).

U.S. Open Day 1 Thread

Scores are high today on Day 1 of the U.S. Open in its return to Shinnecock Hills, with notables Rory McIlroy shooting an 80 and Jordan Spieth a 78, which is currently good for T80. 

Considering that T80 for a 78 is also not taking into account the vast number of players yet to tee off for the afternoon, if you assume half of those players will beat 78, Jordan and Rory face a steep uphill battle on Day 2 just to make the cut.

Perfecting My Golf Swing – Having A Ball

I haven’t had this much with the golf swing in some time, if ever at all in the 13+ years of my swing research journey.

That’s because I’m finally getting around to the task of perfecting my own swing, which I’ve tried to do before but never had the time due to ongoing research or working with other swingers.

Shorter Back Swing, Flatter Plane – Irons Gifs

As promised, I had some 8 iron and 5 iron swings from various angles to show how the work is going with my decision last winter to shorten my back swing pivot and to make sure I my swing plane is on the shallower side of neutral rather than on the steeper side.

So I Said I Was Going To Shorten My Back Swing…

And now I’m there, with the setup adjustment from last week and now the “One Major Move” from the MCS Golf Swing model.

I got video from today’s session, and you will hardly recognize this swing, because I’ve actually made a change to my top position to further shallow out my plane.

So, “Dropping” Your Club Into The “Slot” Is Easy…

It’s easy when you’re in the proper position to do so.  It is much easier than spending endless time on the range trying to groove a new manipulation to your swing.

In fact, I’m of the opinion that no one ever really changes their swing when they do it right – they change something in their setup and swing the same way.

Staying “Behind” The Ball Rather Than “Moving Behind” It

There’s a reason for every single thing that is in the MCS Golf Swing model theory.

You’ll hear a lot of talk in certain circles about the need to “move behind the ball” on the back swing pivot, but that is only because the swinger is not where they need to be at impact when they begin that pivot.
