Down the line, which was 90% of the swing coverage, doesn’t show much of what I wanted to see… but of course, I also saw the one thing that raises caution flags when evaluating any Modern Golf Swing.
I have already pointed out one of the elements of Ben Hogan’s golf swing included in the MCS Golf Swing, of course – it wouldn’t be what it is without the “floating pivot” action (fully mobile hips & legs while the head remains stable, “floating in place”) that is the signature move of the model.
Greg Norman, when you combine distance, power and accuracy and longevity, is considered to be that man.
Rather, it’s a supplemental to aiding one in implementing and using the MCS swing model presented in the “E = MCS” video which, as I said at the time of release, is the last swing model video I see myself producing.
This would be natural, I assume, because most golfers below a certain age never learned or were shown how to make a proper golf swing pivot using the hips and legs.
When you start out with golf and your instruction (either through lessons or following the television/magazine “tips” on proper swinging) consists of restricting the movement of those hips & legs, it is difficult to overcome that feeling of “looseness” in the lower body as you try to start to pivot with the lower body.
I hadn’t swung a club at a ball in about a month when I got together with Welshman today to show him the “One Exercise” that I’ve devised for the training of just about anything you need with regards to the swing.
I’ve said that it works for both the back swing and the down swing, and with Welshman, it was his down swing and early shoulder turn that has been bedeviling him, in addition to a lateral head move which would cause him to top the ball (swing bottom moves forward and bad things happen).
Today is the last day it will be available to order before next month’s release, so you can still get the discount on it now or get the discount on the combo deal until midnight tonight EST!
Now, as to today’s posting, for those who are anticipating the follow-up video to “E = MCS…”
You will find (when you properly use the hips and legs) that certain things happen, such as an effortless shoulder “turn,” which is a term I don’t like use to because of the problems that image creates.
With that in mind, I have been working on a cure exercise for the twin problem of “getting stuck,” usually at the 3 O’Clock position of the down swing, as well as the “flying foot” syndrome that is so prevalent today, particularly with power swingers.
I briefly mentioned Welshman having an “Aha” moment in his journey to building a mechanically-sound golf swing swing, and he told me something else with excitement that amazed me – not that it hadn’t occurred to me before, but that he’d noticed it at all.
I take a great many things for granted, I suppose – I figure that if I know something that has to the do with the swing, then everyone else must as well, but here’s something you may never have noticed, even though I talk all the time about a “full body” motion with the Classic Golf Swing and pivot action.
In fact, barring a re-shoot of the same video “E = MCS,” I am finished with videos on the swing – each video I’ve made over the years always had new concepts and sometimes an adjustment to the model here or there, but the last swing video is the last swing video.
