Video – Working On The Hogan “Plane” Concept

Here is a short video clip showing some swings from yesterday’s session where I continued my work on the Ben Hogan “Plane” concept.

I only shot the two angles shown today because it wasn’t so much my intention to post the video, only look at it for myself, but I know that the usual suspects are always up for looking at MCS swings!

Pow – I Think I’m Done (Hogan Plane Concept & It’s Great)

Sometimes it’s a very old concept that you’ve never really “gotten” that becomes a new one when it clicks for you.

I was swinging yesterday at home with my SwingRite and for some reason, a thought popped into my head while working on the new top position for my back pivot.

Nailing My MCS Now (Just Getting Better & Better)

Well, I went the range today to see if my form would hold up on full-out swings using my new “Big Legs, Little Arms” pivot action with the hips and legs.

I have had a tendency to over-swing and get too long in the back swing pivot, so when I nailed the pivot action according to the model on Friday, I next wanted to see if I could repeat that action swinging for the fences.

13 Years Ago Tomorrow… The Road To MCS (I Nailed It)

I had no idea when I took my golf clubs out of the closet for the first time in years that when I got home that afternoon, I would be determined to “figure it out for myself” if no one could show me what a proper golf swing was.

And by “proper,” I meant a golf swing that was what I can now quantify as being mechanically-correct (which was impossible to get from someone else in the age of the Modern Golf Swing).

Shorter Back Swing, Flatter Plane – Irons Gifs

As promised, I had some 8 iron and 5 iron swings from various angles to show how the work is going with my decision last winter to shorten my back swing pivot and to make sure I my swing plane is on the shallower side of neutral rather than on the steeper side.

So I Said I Was Going To Shorten My Back Swing…

And now I’m there, with the setup adjustment from last week and now the “One Major Move” from the MCS Golf Swing model.

I got video from today’s session, and you will hardly recognize this swing, because I’ve actually made a change to my top position to further shallow out my plane.

So, “Dropping” Your Club Into The “Slot” Is Easy…

It’s easy when you’re in the proper position to do so.  It is much easier than spending endless time on the range trying to groove a new manipulation to your swing.

In fact, I’m of the opinion that no one ever really changes their swing when they do it right – they change something in their setup and swing the same way.
