It is no secret that the golf industry is in decline, perhaps part of a natural boom and bust cycle, but I would posit that a major facet of it is in the fact that the modern golf swing is chasing and keeping people away from the game.
Golf will always be played, so the game itself is not in peril. There will always be enough people with the means, opportunity and of course desire to play.
I told you all about how researching the golf swing has helped to keep me sane, having missed the athletic pursuits that took up the bulk of my adolescence.
It seems that 64 year-old DKondo is also feeling his oats, returning to a mechanically-sound golf swing, and he has thrown his hat back into the competitive ring – he’s entered himself into this month’s Arizona Senior Open at Wickenburg Ranch!
If you have been wondering why I’ve been pushing so hard on Brandel Chamblee’s book “The Anatomy of Greatness,” then you obviously haven’t read it yet – because once you do, you’ll understand why.
This has never been about my trying to carve out a niche in the game of golf, or to earn a living teaching the golf swing – it has been my focus on changing the golf swing back to the proper fundamentals of the Classic Golf Swing era.
The pre-order option for the MCS “Perfect Pivot” video will be available until March 31, and I will be returning to Arizona at week’s end to finish off the shooting for an April release, hopefully the week after the Masters finish.
The slight delay (I was shooting for a Masters week release) came when I returned home from Arizona a few weeks back and reviewed what I had done, and of course I was dissatisfied, having been pre-occupied with the hosting of the Wax Golf Southwest Summit at the Golf Club of Estrella.
So, we have the swing researcher (DJ), who builds models, and the playing pro (BT), who is enjoying a resurgence in his game and speed/power that he never possessed before, using the MCS “floating pivot” swing model.
We’ve been working together on his pivot and he has implemented the setup and mechanical action that turns the standard MCS back swing pivot to more closely emulate Ben Hogan’s awesome action.
