If you can find me another motion better than a baseball swing or javelin throw as an example of leveraging against the ground to swing or throw something, then I’d love to see it.
Another de-bunking here, as I heard a couple of times on the PGA Championship broadcast that players like Justin Thomas get “vertical lift” by having a high trailing heel and having the front foot leave the ground at impact.
Of course, I’ve made my view clear that I think the analysts on TV have no clue why a player does the “flying foot,” so you hear a lot of bunk concerning this.
This is something that you’re told when players make a big shift off the ball in the pivot, or when they swing back keeping the right arm from bending until later in the back swing.
There’s talk, and then there’s proof, which is why I’ve never embellished anything I’ve done with the swing regarding distance or numbers.
I found a Tweet from the PGA Tour’s account showing DJ (that one) hitting driver with some stats.
This doesn’t mean I’m finished, far from it, but I am now in the final edit stage of the production for the “MCS – The Kinetic Chain” video!
That means I’ve shot all of the video I need, I have the presentation video footage taken care of, and I’ve winnowed all of that down to what will be in the video, and I’m now working on the actual product.
I guess anyone watching the weekend’s WGC Bridgestone Invitational noticed that the announcers seems to be focused on Tiger Woods and his apparent stiffness, lack of energy and other things on the weekend.
I will admit that I only saw much of him on Thursday, because the weekend had me busy with family things and working on the “MCS – The Kinetic Chain” video.
While working on the “MCS – Project 2018” video, I finally seized upon a theme, as most of my videos are usually centered around a theme of sorts, like the pivot (“MCS – Perfect Pivot), or leverage (“MCS – Ultimate Leverage”), or the “One Major Move” from the “E = MCS” video.
The original intent of this video was to provide proof of the efficiency and effectiveness of using the MCS Golf Swing model, by explaining with numbers and graphics how and why it is such.
I am not even there yet in simplifying my own move, because the nature of making swing changes is such that, even when you “feel” you’re making that move here or there in the swing, most likely you’re closer to your old action than the new, when you check the video.
It was actually one of my longer drive carries, at 307 yards, and I just wanted to show how “quiet” a swing is when you leverage it properly.
