It looks with the forecasts that I will likely be able to get out to do some swing work either this coming week or at latest the next week, so I have a driver swing here I’ve gone back to inspect.
I’ve said that I can’t bear to look at any of my swing clips since I’ve made significant improvements to my MCS swing mechanics – the model itself hasn’t changed since my “E = MCS” video in 2017, but my swing sure has changed for the better since then.
This Classic Golf Swing driver below was a few weeks before my trip to the TXG facility to get some numbers and doesn’t actually make my eyes bleed.
Those of you who remember the autumn of 2019 will be reminded that I left some unfinished business on the table when I put the blog essentially on hiatus at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.
I had actually shut down production of what was to be my last Classic Golf Swing video back in December of ’19 due to other commitments that made finishing the project in timely manner unfeasible, and that has always been in the back of my mind.
I clearly remember the last time I was this excited about the start of a new golf season, and it was around this time in the winter of ’12-’13.
I had just declared that I was leaving the school of Mikes Austin & Dunaway because the swing model was just too complicated to master, that it wouldn’t work for most people & that I was working on a new golf swing model.
I’ve broken that long iron swing of Jack Nicklaus’ from yesterday’s post down into the 2 separate components of the back pivot (loading the trebuchet) and the down swing weight shift (leveraging the trebuchet).
This weekend, you’ll be able to watch all you want of today’s pro players contorting themselves trying to generate power from every wrong way, and you can compare them to Nicklaus’ weight shift leveraging his power effortlessly.
