Light Club Swing Should = Heavy Club Swing

I’ve said that the scourge of Modern Golf Swing instruction and practice is that people who have no business injuring themselves swinging feather-weight clubs in the modern age are doing so.

I mean, how do you hurt yourself swinging today’s driver?

The Math Says I Hit 130 MPH Club Speed @ 45.5 Yrs

Before I get to my point, I know all about the SSR and the issues with accurate club speed.

I wasn’t measuring the club speed because I only had the Swing Speed Radar device which, again, I knew to be unreliable for measuring golf club impact speed.

Tiger Woods Is Still So Good…

He literally shot -1 on one leg on Thursday and don’t let the +2 round yesterday fool you – after not playing in a Tour event in a year and a half, another back surgery and a shattered right leg, the man has scored better than all but 18 players thus far.

Granted it’s Augusta National where he could play blind-folded in the dark, but come on.

Something Strange About The Two Pivots

I’ve got back to doing speed work and something strange happened while I was getting into the standard Classic Golf Swing action with the raised leading heel back pivot.

When I would swing normally, such as when you’d be putting a nice, controlled driver swing on a tee shot, I’d get the mirror-image pivot/impact situation – raised leading heel on the back pivot, raised trailing heel at impact.

About Mental Imagery

Mental imagery is very powerful in my opinion when building, working on and performing an athletic motion.

My longest WAX Nation members will of course be familiar with the mental imagery aspect of the golf swing because of my Austin/Dunaway years (2009-2013), so this is nothing new.

Modelling Update – Indications Bear The Post-Model Out

The earlier posting about lofts wasn’t my intended topic of today – chalk it off as a rant triggered by years of watching this silly “he’s hitting an 8 on this approach!!” business when the 8 iron has a loft ten degrees lower than my 8 iron and between my 5 & 6 iron lofts.

No, the topic I was going to broach was that nothing I do with the floating pivot MCS Classic Golf Swing model can match the power of the model I’ve been working on since last summer.

I Kept Seeing Something In My Mind (Modelling)

Here’s a little posting for my old crew, hearkening back to the days I would post my swing research findings in real time.

And a revelation on this scale hasn’t happened to me in some time.

Unfinished Business – The “MCS Synchronicity” Classic Golf Swing Model

Those of you who remember the autumn of 2019 will be reminded that I left some unfinished business on the table when I put the blog essentially on hiatus at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.

I had actually shut down production of what was to be my last Classic Golf Swing video back in December of ’19 due to other commitments that made finishing the project in timely manner unfeasible, and that has always been in the back of my mind.

I’m Excited About This Year Like No Other In Nearly A Decade

I clearly remember the last time I was this excited about the start of a new golf season, and it was around this time in the winter of ’12-’13.

I had just declared that I was leaving the school of Mikes Austin & Dunaway because the swing model was just too complicated to master, that it wouldn’t work for most people & that I was working on a new golf swing model.

More Musings – New Model Turbo Boosts The “Drop & Pop?”

One of the visuals or “feels” that has survived the MCS Classic Golf Swing era for me is the “Drop & Pop.”

Of course, this makes perfect sense as the optimal golf swing would have zero impeding factors in helping the club face get to the bottom of the golf swing arc.
