Extended Release Pt III (DTL)

7i post impJust a quick posting with the down the line swings from Saturday, in gif. form.

The thing about having the extended release is that you’re not turning – I’ve said before, there is “no turn in the swing,” only the pivot, whereas if you’re actually trying to time a  “turn” through impact, you’re just going to make things much more difficult than they have to be.

The Left, Right & Full Body Swings

arms at addressI have blogged a good deal about how, even though we hold the golf club with both hands, we tend to be “dominant” with one side of our bodies or the other.

For example, you’ll have a right-handed swinger swinging right-handed, and they will be dominant with the righ hand, in the “throwing” or “pushing” type of visual to their swing action.

Getting More “Push” To The “Pull” – Leverage & Power

dj imp ldIf you think of the “pulling” part of a hybrid “Push/Pull” down swing, that’s the part that leverages the initial part of that down swing.

Wax Nation – Remember This Video? (Push/Pull)

If you’re now watching the “Kinesiology of the MCS Golf Swing,” you’ll see a lot of what he’s talking about with regards to that action.

Take The Swing “To The Wall”

djs wallI am getting through all of the new material for the upcoming “KinesioIogy of the MCS Golf Swing” material that I had to re-shoot for the video, and here’s a little tidbit for the DJ’s Watering Hole crew on the “mallet” action of the MCS Golf Swing.

This is more for the “throwing” swingers, but if you are a hybrid swinger, this concept should also make sense to you as it simply shows the right or power side action in a throwing and/or hybrid swing action.

Peter Kostis Uses MCS Terminology

kostisYes, if you watched the CBS broadcast from the PGA Tour’s 2015 Quicken Loans National event yesterday, you would have seen Peter Kostis using MCS terminology describing the hybrid swing mechanics (“pushing/throwing” combined with “pulling”).

I kid you not.  Anyone who has read my blogging on the golf swing knows that I’ve used the same terms for years upon years to describe the actions of a mechanically-correct swing motion.
