The “More Outside” Takeaway – DJ’s “Perfect Pivot” Swings

dj watts impact driverHere are some swings, face-on and down the line, of what my swing looks like taking the club away a little more “outside” than the “straight inside” path I’d been using since completing my personal MCS “Perfect Pivot” swing model.

Secret of MCS – Next Up “Swing Angle”

leaning aIf you had to ask me which part of the MCS swing theory that is most different from conventional and especially modern swing models is the “Swing Angle.”

You will hear things from the pros and instructors about “throwing” the club at the target after impact, and that is simply incorrect, mechanically-speaking.
