The Simplest Model Is The Most Powerful, Etc…

If I’ve learned anything about models and motion in my near-14 years of research and analysis on the golf swing, it’s that the simpler, the better, with one caveat – retaining mechanical soundness or correctness.

Which means, the less moving parts you have in the model, the better it will function, until you remove too much and make it mechanically-unsound.

2019 (And My Best Swings Ever) – Nearly Here!

I’ve been rather quiet the past week, due to a winter bug.

Seems there’s a nasty flu going around these parts and I’ve, shall we say, under the weather.

For that reason alone, I’m eager to put 2018 behind me.

Let’s Take It From The Top – Gravity + Leverage

I liked the comment left by long-time Wax Nation citizen Goose, who hit the nail on the head with a perfect description of the right arm action with the club.

In fact, it is the perfect description of what’s going on with a perfect (or as close to it as you can get to perfect) down swing action leveraged by the leading side and powered by the trailing arm.

You Must Swing DOWN & Not Forward With The Golf Swing


Wishing everyone a safe and Merry Christmas Day!

I’m not saying you can’t swing forward, but that is not mechanically-optimal and can actually lead to mechanical-correctness issues, which of course means you’re sacrificing performance and raising injury risk.

One of the main issues of trying to swing at the target with the golf swing is that the ball is located near the bottom of the swing arc… so trying to direct force and energy at the target with the club when the ball is nowhere near that point means wasted energy and inefficiency.

When You Get Both Sides Sync’d – The Leverage Is Huge

It boggles my mind that, whatever I’ve managed to do with my golf swing motion in the past 13.5 years since beginning my research, my longest drives and highest club speeds may actually still lie before me.

At 48 going on 49 (next March), that is pretty heady stuff. However, knowing what I’ve been working on and the breakthroughs I’ve made with my own motion to get even closer yet to the MCS Golf Swing model theory – it could be true, even with the decline brought on by Father Time.

Wow… After A Month Of “New Feels,” Effortless Swings

Update On DJ’s Personal Swing

There is a process, I’ve found, with making lasting improvements to one’s motion in the golf swing – and of course, I’m talking about mechanically-correct motion, because anything that is not mechanically-correct is a hazard to one’s health.

Dunaway’s Action WAS Right-Dominant BUT Also Used Leading Side Leverage

Dunaway’s Action WAS Right-Dominant BUT Also Used Leading Side Leverage..

That much should be pretty self-evident if you think about it, but it’s also something that can be overlooked.

Question – How Did I Get My Swing Plane & Path To Neutral?

I would say that the things I’ve been showing you over the past few days would illustrate, if there is any such thing, a “neutral” swing plane on the down swing.

That would make sense, considering that if one’s hands are travelling a route that matches the club shaft’s impact plane, and the club itself matches that plane on the way down, that you would call this “neutral.”

More MCS Swing Plane Neat Stuff (Swing’s Not “Perfect” But Looking Good!)

I wrote the other day about having noticed something with regards to the swing plane on a stock Driver swing of mine from the summer.

It was after I had worked on my pivot to tighten it up and improve my own swing plane.

In-To-Out vs Out-To-In (And Something Really Neat)

I have taken two driver swings of mine, the first from back in 2011 when I was driving the ball as far as I do now, if not longer (there’s nothing like youth when you want to pound it), and one from this past summer.
