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’ve been on the shelf for swinging for nearly a week now, due to the cracked or badly bruised ribs I incurred on one of my cough syncope falls.
I have been limited to easy swinging, just practicing the setup, making sure of the position and then making the easy motions at around 40-50% – hard enough to engage all of the muscles but easy enough not to strain the ribs.
Because of the nature of the difference between the body and actual machines, it’s not a perfect analogy, but you can consider this – when used properly, the leading side produces leverage for the down swing that is akin to a pulley or winch, which emulates the gear action of a machine.
First of all, I would like to make it very clear to anyone who has been reading my postings the past couple of weeks – this is pretty advanced stuff.
I had an email conversation with a gentleman just on the past weekend, and we correspond quite a bit on the swing, where he suggested that my focus on the right side of the swing might cause people to turn early or over-rotate, and I agreed, with one caveat:
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.
