A Look At Rickie Fowler’s Golf Swing

I looked at Rickie Fowler’s golf swing a while back and declared that he was making some progress from the swing with which he had turned pro and then with which he encountered some back injury issues.

This is a little clip from the four hours of video that I shot last summer and fall with David D.

Of course, everything couldn’t make it into the final cut of the “MCS – Dropping The Hammer” video, but here’s a little out-take that will be familiar to the old hands.

Getting To The Leading Foot – How The Greats Did It

I have been looking for some examples of how many of the greatest swingers to play pro golf got properly into the leading side and foot through the ball rather than hanging back, and you’ll likely be surprised by some of the names that had a “short-stop slide” at one point in their careers.

Speed Training – The SwingRite For The 3rd Lever

Now that I’ve come to the end of my development of the MCS Golf Swing model, I can concentrate on helping everyone hone their own version of this swing model, and today I’d like to address the 3rd Lever action.

“Loose Legs” Pt 2 – Swinging “With The Knees”

I have been looking at the action of the hips and legs for the upcoming “EMCS2 – The Follow-Up” video, which again isn’t another “golf swing” video.

Rather, it’s a supplemental to aiding one in implementing and using the MCS swing model presented in the “E = MCS” video which, as I said at the time of release, is the last swing model video I see myself producing.

PGA Tour Gurus Don’t Understand Release! (Tony Finau)

finau release*An Archived Posting From December 06, 2015

I was looking for a good swing clip of Tony Finau today for whatever reason – I wasn’t going to profile his swing or anything, although he’s a prodigiously long hitter.

I was just looking to see what he pivot action looks like, and it’s not bad, but the one thing I learned about anything today while looking at Finau’s “Golf Digest” analysis was – and this is embarrassing to have to point out, I assure you – the swing gurus to the PGA Tour players don’t understand the release action of a proper golf swing…
