We’ve been over the whole nonsensical claim advanced on television that the “Flying Foot Syndrome” golfers – those who can’t keep a stable leading foot through impact – are “using the ground” when they swing.
Thanks to Welshman for finding and forwarding the clip below.
I have said for years and years that what wrecked Tiger Woods’ left knee (he’s had at least four surgeries on it, beginning back even before he turned pro) was the planted-heel pivot method of the Modern Golf Swing.
The Advance Orders window for the upcoming “Project 2018” video has closed and thanks to everyone who reserved their copy in advance!
I was able to get out to the facility today, and it’s been nearly a month (four weeks on Wednesday) since I got in the first and only day of swinging this year, due to the cold/rain and then last week’s ice storm.
To illustrate how the MCS Golf Swingmodel should work when you’ve got your setup and mechanics going properly (not perfectly, but properly), you can see my point that you swing from the same setup with essentially the same mechanics no matter what club you’re swinging.
To make it short and sweet, modern equipment hasn’t helped the average golfer drive it longer – in fact, the average drive distance of the average golfer has fallen from 2015 to 2018 (and I can’t believe how short the average golfer drives stats, to be honest).
There are some things that I’ve set out to contradict or flat-out debunk in my years of swing research and blogging, and I’m very excited about what I’ll be doing with “Project 2018,” for which I still haven’t found a name that suits me.
I got an email from a WAX Nationreader (hey there, R.H.) who had asked me about a video he watched where the “pro” move is to have the hands moving upward at impact, creating a more level or shallower “swing bottom,” to increase consistency in ball-striking.
