Nailing My MCS Now (Just Getting Better & Better)

Well, I went the range today to see if my form would hold up on full-out swings using my new “Big Legs, Little Arms” pivot action with the hips and legs.

I have had a tendency to over-swing and get too long in the back swing pivot, so when I nailed the pivot action according to the model on Friday, I next wanted to see if I could repeat that action swinging for the fences.

Some Irons Gifs – U.S. Open Sunday Thread

Well, it seems I missed quite the day on the links yesterday in day 3 of the U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills!

I will confess that I was up late Friday and early Saturday (to watch some World Cup matches), and that by the time I got around to watching the leaders tee off in the afternoon, I was more interested in watching the insides of my eyelids than the tournament.

Shorter Back Swing, Flatter Plane – Irons Gifs

As promised, I had some 8 iron and 5 iron swings from various angles to show how the work is going with my decision last winter to shorten my back swing pivot and to make sure I my swing plane is on the shallower side of neutral rather than on the steeper side.

So I Said I Was Going To Shorten My Back Swing…

And now I’m there, with the setup adjustment from last week and now the “One Major Move” from the MCS Golf Swing model.

It’s funny that people were sending me clips or emailing me about OSU’s Matt Wolff last week considering my talk about the concept of “Big Legs, Little Arms” last winter and into the spring.

Jason Day Goes Stealth Heel Lift – Freeing Up The Hips

Several people who read WAX Golf have noticed that Wells Fargo champion¬†Jason Day is now employing a “stealth heel lift” on some of his driver swings, and I got one angle that shows it clearly on a drive he hit yesterday.

From not being able to play regularly the past two seasons since hitting the Number 1 World Rankings, he has now won two events this season.

MCS = Two Clubs – One Swing (PW vs 5i)

To illustrate how the MCS Golf Swing model should work when you’ve got your setup and mechanics going properly (not perfectly, but properly), you can see my point that you swing from the same setup with essentially the same mechanics no matter what club you’re swinging.

The Proper Pivot Isn’t A “Turn”

This is the major difference you will find between a proper, mechanically-sound pivot using the hips & legs versus the modern method of twisting the back and torso to turn the shoulders.

Just as I demonstrated in the “E = MCS” video that you swing around the C7 (see the gif), you don’t really “turn” away from the ball when pivoting.
