Luke List – How About That Swing?

If you want to see what I would call a great swing on the PGA Tour (because I don’t say that about many swings in this Modern Golf Swing era), I got a look at Luke List this week.

Note: The Model Is The Model – What I’ve “Found” Is Personal

As I indicated in my comments this week on having “found” something incredible in the MCS model, it’s nothing that is new itself to MCS.

It’s my personal journey towards replicating the model in its purest essence that I’m after, as you know, and the thing I’ve “found” is something that anyone will find in applying the principles laid out in the “E = MCS” video on stance and “measuring” oneself to the ball.

What I Found & The Changes In My Swing

OK, I mentioned yesterday in one of my breaks from swinging and writing that I had found something in the setup that should be something everyone will or should have in their own swings when they find their optimal address position.

For Leveraged Speed – The One Move + Stepping Into It

The one frustrating thing about having swing clips on my blog is that I’m constantly “obsoleting” them, in that my personal technique gets me swinging better than even my best posted clips.

Even More Science On The Back & Pivot! (Video)

I know that many  people don’t delve into the comments (and I don’t blame you, from what I usually see in the comments sections of other websites), so for those of you who remember my posting on the spine and twisting from last summer (spoiler: don’t do that), here’s a great video from John Vickers, CSCS, of the Golf Swing BMI on that same subject.

More Science On The Proper Pivot (Video)

Happy New Year everyone!  I got this video below from DK (great find as always, DK!), showing that golf science is slowly coming into play in a real way, or at least I hope.

Incredibly, this video only has 2,700 views, when it should be required viewing for anyone purporting to be a golf swing “guru,” biomechanics or kinesiology expert in golf mechanics.

Early Holiday Gift – Boom – Found My Leverage Niche

I’ve said before that there are infinite variations to how one may apply the principles of the MCS Golf Swing theory, but that I’m only interested in the optimal way of doing it.

Well, I’m pleased to say that I have finally figured out my ” leverage niche,” what I call my top position, for providing that optimal controlled speed and power.

Tiger Woods – 2 Positive Things + 1 Major Issue (Video)

Believe it or not, I saw a couple of things I liked in Tiger Woods’ golf swing when I took a close look at a swing from an angle I could check it out properly.

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.

Watch Ben Hogan’s “3 To 9” Action

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 Describes Ben Hogan’s (And The MCS) Perfect Pivot

I found the following clip on Youtube yesterday, and I can’t believe that no one ever talks about the mechanics of the greatest driver ever on the PGA Tour in the persimmon age.

Greg Norman, when you combine distance, power and accuracy and longevity, is considered to be that man.
