You hear all of the praise in TV announcers’ analyses of the “jumping bean” swingers on Tour who like to think they are generating awesome power and leverage with the leading leg “snap” through impact.
What you’re doing, in actuality, is compensating for a swing model that has you out of optimal leveraging position coming into impact, and so you have to hyper-extend the leading leg to get the lead hip and shoulder back to allow clearance of the right side.
Number 1 and simplest reason – they don’t commit to it.
2nd reason? They don’t commit to it.
3rd reason? They don’t know what to change or how, thinking that you can remove a swing flaw from a moving motion by simply deciding to.
Let me tell you a little something that the teaching gurus don’t tell you – without completely overhauling your swing, you aren’t going to change anything, and if you don’t make the commitment to see it through, you’re dead in the water to begin with.
This wedge impact picture tells you all you need to know about why a swing model like MCS “Ultimate Leverage” gives you such consistency with your wedges through the long irons.
Especially with the wedges, when you have a model that lets you swing to the swing bottom in the same way, you quickly gain an understanding of just how consistent and accurate you can make your swing game.
