Bridgestone’s BFit Launch Monitor App Looks Really Interesting

After I got my new iPhone this week, I began to research the different Launch Monitors that might be compatible with it.

I was pleased to find something right away that I probably had seen or heard about in passing (I vaguely recall something like this) but ignored as I didn’t have an iPhone at the time.

A hearty thanks to Mr. McJohn, who found the following clip on Youtube and forwarded it to me this morning.

I was very pleased to see some changes in Cameron Champ’s setup and mechanics in the rear view of his driver swing – let’s take a look, shall we?

Kinesiology/Biomechanics Specialists – Where Are Your Swing Models?!?

This is the thing that really aggravates me whenever I hear about a kinesiology or biomechanics specialist who is working in the field of golf – they are always looking at golfers’ swings and telling you what the swinger is doing, but they never tell you what the golfer should be doing better or what the optimal mechanical action is or should be.

Back To Swinging Today! (Still Not 100%)

I have great personal news to report – it looks like I’m back to swinging again, even though I’m not 100% yet!

It’s another snow storm in these parts, another school day for the kids, and I was just thinking about leading side leverage when I got up to grab the SwingRite, which I haven’t touched in some time.

Molinari’s Swing Coach Has “The Formula” – Guess What It Is…

I blogged a few posts last year on Francesco Molinari winning the Quicken Loans and also the Open Championship with his excellent Classic Golf Swing action.

Well, imagine my amusement when I tweeted on the perils of the Modern Golf Swing last week and received a response from Molinari’s swing guru, Mr. Denis Pugh, on the merits of swinging in the Classic style:

Thanks to David D. for sending this to me – more bad news for the Modern Golf Swing industry, as it seems more medical researchers are catching up with the snake-oil and bad science of restricted-hip back-torquing.

This Is Big – Golf Digest Publishes The “X-Factor” Study

Well, I had just told Mr. McJohn in a comment yesterday not to hold his breath on any major golf publications or channels discussing the results of the so-called “X-Factor” study we read about in the BBC

And lookie here, friends – Golf Digest through GolfWorld courtesy of Joe Beall has just published a piece online doing exactly that:

I’ve Got Something Special For WAX Nation – Closing In On A Million Views As Well!

Before I address today’s topics, I took a look at my site metrics yesterday and was pleased and gratified to see that WAX Golf has passed the 900,000 views mark and will pass One Million Views in the next few weeks!**

** In fact, I would have well over 1 Million views already for WAX Golf but I had it on a different server than the WordPress server for about 4 months in the first year, which views aren’t recorded by my current server.

Here’s How I Get One-Armed Leverage

I’ve been talking about how, using the proper MCS Golf Swing model principles, I’ve been able to increase my left-arm-only swing to click the SwingRite on lower and lower settings.

The reason for the increase in speed is because I’ve improved my adherence to the same model principles I’ve laid out –  you can do it in varying degrees of adherence, and the closer you get to the model, the better you will swing.
