More Pieces Fall Into Place – The 2 Models

I’ve always said that I would only ever want to swing in one way, which is the optimal way in which to swing – however…

It would seem that there are two models of the golf swing I would consider optimal based upon how one swings or wishes to swing.

The Cross-Dominant Double-Cross Strikes Again

Here’s a deep dive into the nitty-gritty of swing modeling, for those so inclined.

I would say that it was a mistake to have been working on two different swing models last season and prior, but there is a silver lining to that darkness – I may have solved two problems in half the time it might have otherwise taken.

The Last Right-Dominant Puzzle Piece? (Also, No Going Back)

I’ve crossed the Rubicon in a way this week – I’ve been focusing on, breaking down and trying to complete my transition to a right-dominant swing (swinging right-handed, of course) and I can’t go back to the old Classic Golf Swing.

I tried that yesterday at Tracer Golf, because as I was working on the new model, I briefly tried to go back and swing the way I used to, even up to last season and into the autumn with my first forays into the golf simulator world.

The Simplest Swing Action (But Likely Harder To Explain)

If you’re wondering why I’ve been working so long and seemingly without progress on my new swing model, it’s because it’s the simplest action one can make with a mechanically-correct swing model that maximizes both power and accuracy combined.

I Made This GIF Six Years Ago – The Visual Hasn’t Changed

This was something I did while talking to the camera during my “MCS – Ultimate Leverage” video, released in early 2015, as some of you old-timers on the site will remember.

Over the intervening years, I made adjustments and changes to the model setup and slightly in the mechanics area, but the visual is still the same.

Swinging Right-Handed Means Exactly That

One would think that this is a straight-forward statement and even simpler concept, but I’ve watched enough so-called right-handed swingers to see that almost no one actually does it.

This is why Mike Dunaway’s swing looked so markedly different from any other swing you see, even his mentor’s – he was swinging virtually 100% with his right arm and hand.

This Hybrid Model Has Snead’s Pivot Action

It is a little different from the way I built the original MCS Classic Golf Swing pivot on Ben Hogan’s action.

Hogan’s was such a good action, it was the perfect pivot, if you will, for swinging in the manner that my modeling has prescribed.

Happy New Year – Back To Work

Happy New Year, WAX Nation!

I took the month of December off swinging or blogging (although I’m always working on the swing at home even when not hitting balls), to enjoy the holiday season with family and friends, but it’s back to work time.

Model Work Nearly There – Complete Overhaul

I had gotten as far as I was going to go with the Classic Golf Swing model on which I’ve been working since 2015.

While it was mechanically-correct, it was either that I wasn’t executing the principles properly or there was something missing.

This Would Be The Greatest Swing Model

I hypothesized a few years ago about my vision of the Classic Golf Swing having the regular pivot action on the back swing, but with a Mike Dunaway-esqe leverage and impact position, which never came to fruition.

After several attempts at it, and a whole summer spent on it, I nearly gave up on it – actually, I did give up on it until this morning when, while going back and forth between the Classic and the Post-Modern, I began to make some very fast Classic pivot swings and then noticed something.
