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.
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.
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 my8 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.
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 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.
