I consider humbray to be a part of the Southwest Wax crew even though he’s a Mid-Westerner, as he spends time down there and since we meet through DKondo, who is an Ohio transplant to Goodyear, AZ and who set up the first Southwest Summits.
All the way from California, another Wax Nation citizen (whom you’ve probably seen before in the comments section) was travelling and in the area, and took the time to stop in for a visit and a little consult on his swing today.
Fortunately, the weather turned out to be awesome, much warmer than forecast, and a brilliantly sunny morning set things off perfectly.
I like to tell the story of how I tweaked something in my back a couple of days before a flight to Arizona to participate in the first Wax Southwest Summit last March, because for one, it’s true, and secondly, it may help someone out there.
So, it has officially paid off for a Wax Nation member who just shared the following little anecdote with me (thanks Mr. H!), on how this helped out.
I compiled a little video montage from my travels to the U.S. earlier in the year to meet with Wax Nation members and for consultations, just a little taste of what 2016 was like for Wax Golf down south of the border.
Well, we have had in the past year some Wax Golf meet-ups in California and Arizona in addition of course to the Toronto-area group (mine), but this is something special – Wax Golf has had a meeting of two Wax Nation citizens in Asia, HKGolf & Jason I.!
They connected here on the blog and HKG sent me a few pics from yesterday’s round of golf at the Jockey Club Kai Sai Chau course in Hong Kong.
I have to hand it to David D., because he may have single-handedly kicked off the “Beyond Perfect Pivot” video concept, which I had envisioned as an accessory to the MCS Trilogy Series, which ends, of course with the “MCS – Perfect Pivot” video.
What David did, while we were working on his swing that day (primarily the address position – if you nail the Fundamentals Trifecta, you’ll be in great shape to start your swing), was focus on getting it all down.
I got together with a longtime Member and friend, David D., who is
67 73 years young and who wanted a little work on his swing at season’s end.
We hadn’t seen each other in about a year, perhaps longer (it was last season around the same time), and all the work we did was on the stance, to get him into a more athletically-correct swinging position.
MWehrman has been featured here on Wax in the past due to his excellent MCS swing, and will actually have a couple of swings featured on the upcoming “MCS – Perfect Pivot” video when it is finally completed.
I mentioned yesterday that I saw Wax Member Humbray again, having met him last summer on his first journey from Ohio.
It was a great time, as I had also wanted to meet Sheldon Friske, a pro at Thornhill Golf & C.C. in Vaughan, having corresponded with him over the winter. He and Jerry “Big Toilet” Crowell are friends and what he was hearing about the MCS swing methodology interested him.
Wax Member “Humbray” made another trip from Ohio to the Great White North (which is very green right now, with one of the warmest winters on record), and he brought along his son this time.
We had a great morning session and then lunch before they headed back to Ohio.
