Before I address today’s topics, I took a look at my site metrics yesterday and was pleased and gratified to see that WAX Golf has passed the 900,000 views mark and will pass One Million Views in the next few weeks!**
** In fact, I would have well over 1 Million views already for WAX Golf but I had it on a different server than the WordPress server for about 4 months in the first year, which views aren’t recorded by my current server.
I wasn’t kidding around when I wrote on the weekend that the leading side leverage are provided and powered by the hip and leg action in the optimal golf swing.
I’ve been doing more exploration of the MCS Golf Swing model swinging with the left arm only while I rehab the rib injury and the more I focus on the hip and leg action with the “drop” action, the easier it is to click the SwingRite on increasingly lower settings.
I would recommend the following drill whether or not you are a left-dominant swinger or right-dominant – in other words, swinging with the leading arm only will definitely aid your swing mechanics, whichever side you’re dominant.
In fact, I remember when John Daly had his “Daly Planet” show on the Golf Channel back around 2005 or so – he showed his warm-up one time, and he always warmed up hitting wedges with his left arm only.
I’ve been looking for a good left-handed swing action to illustrate the isolated arm swinging the golf club, and I remembered seeing Mike Austin’sdemonstration of it in the Pico Rivera video.
Now, I’ve been saying for years, since I finished the MCS Golf Swing model especially, that the only real difference between the Mike Austin swing model and that of MCSis in the stance and head motion during the back pivot.
OK, WAX Nation – time to end the impression that there is anything mysterious about what I’ve been discussing this week.
The truth of it is that everything I’ve been looking at and commenting on, is already in the MCSmodel – I was just getting the “aha” this past week of exactly why the shorter back swing for me is going to be much more powerful than anything I’ve done in the past with my way-past-parallel position at the top.
