If you want a simple pictorial illustration of why MCS is the optimal model for the golf swing, let me show you simply how it harnesses leverage over muscle power, creating the effortless-looking swing that you can create with it.
I’ve talked about the “dropping the hammer”concept and how it helps to set up the impact position at address, but when I took it a step further and worked with it a little to combine it with a previous method of setting up the address, something very cool occurred.
Video Shoot Day 2 is now in the books and after reviewing all of the video, I can now say that the initial portion of the “E = MCS” video production is completed, and I can now move on to the tutorial portion.
The weather has been doing its best to spoil the party but there was enough dry weather between the last days of rain and the current cloudy-rainy-thunderstormy stuff to get the job done.
If you’ve seen the jumping and twisting leading feet and legs of the modern golf swing players, you’ll know what I’m talking about here.
There is a tendency for swing analysts on TV, from what I’ve seen, to explain away mechanical flaws in the swing by declaring that the compensations or manipulations in the swing are responsible for power or speed.
If you notice any changes in the blog’s appearance in the coming days, don’t be alarmed – it isn’t going anywhere, and if you see some missing posts, that’s part of what’s going to be happening.
Simply, I’ve taken a look at everything here and think a change is in order – I’ve got over 1,400 posts written on this blog or posted from previous blogs, most of which I’ve taken down for now, as I decide what to keep and what to discard (which I don’t really – I put them back into “draft status” in case I want or need to revive them, and that keeps any comments on them still alive as well).
I’m a little miffed about it as well, considering I just had it re-gripped a couple of weeks back, but that’s life.
I had gone to the range to see how close my established address position was to what it should be for an optimal impact, and the Welshman was there for a few moments before he had to depart on business.
It’s pure and simple, that the actual “secret” to a proper golf swing has always been in the address position, or the “Fundamentals Trifecta,” as I have called the Stance, Ball Positionand Grip for years.
It’s the true formula, and while there have been many golfers in history who might have played brilliant golf with iffy stances, you’ve seen what I have laid out in recent years ago the historically best players and swingers have had strikingly similar stances.
If you need any convincing that the technique for producing speed in the swing is the same for power, then have a look at two swings I have made recently with different drivers.
The swing on the left was with the Momentus Power Driver swing, so of course the technique for this swing would have to be one that provides power and leverage to move the much heavier club than a standard one.
