You all know of my contempt for the concepts of Modern Golf, whether it’s calling a flying leading foot something like “creating vertical lift” or the other silly term “using the ground” as if some players are floating in the air during their swings.
Well, congratulations to Golf.com for a completely undecipherable article that asks how Tiger Woodscreates his ball speed and answers, I’m not kidding, “Very Carefully.”
Just as the 3 most important things in real estate or property are Location, Location & Location, you will always hear my belief that the 3 most important parts of the golf swing are Setup, Setup and Setup.
Here is a driver swing from a youngTiger Woods, if you’ll allow me to point out things that would have concerned me at the time.

I made a point in a comment about Justin Thomas having very low Angle of Attackdespite his “flying foot” which is supposed to add“vertical lift”or to be“using the ground,”and I said that I’d check to make sure.
I am still going through my historical postings with a mind to re-posting the more relevant topics and here is one about the reason I believe the Golf Channel died.
It may not actually be, as I just checked and there’s a programming schedule that includes pre-event shows, live events, endless re-playing of live events and very little original content other than “School of Golf.”
The “MCS” in the phrase “MCS Golf Swing” of course means “Mechanically-Correct Swing.”
Speaking from a teaching or instruction point of view, let alone deciding to swing using a certain model, the very first question about a golf swing model should be, “Is it mechanically-sound?”
The answer to that question with any iteration you choose to pick from the Modern Golf Swings out there is simply and concisely, “No,” which means it shouldn’t be used for the purpose of swinging a golf club.
