DJ’s 1st Swing Clip For 2017! 3 Angles

I have compiled a video clip here, showing what are finally fit-for-video swings with my updated MCS Golf Swing with the dominant “pull” action reduced and with the proper “push” action.

I was able to break down and reassemble my swing so quickly this spring (using the “3 Pillars,” formerly “Dropping The Hammer” concept) because I’ve always had the components, but I needed to really nail down the adjusted address position to accommodate my spinal deformity, and I think you’ll all agree that I finally got there.

June 18th 2005 – April 19, 2017 – The Day I’ve Been Awaiting

I dug my golf clubs out of the closet on a Saturday back in 2005, after watching some of the 3rd round of the U.S. Open (won that year by Michael Campbell of New Zealand), and when I got home from the range, I remarked to my wife that I was going to “figure this out, once and for all…

Those of you who have been reading my blogging on the golf swing (I first began posting back in the late summer of 2007, about two years after that) will know that I had dumped those clubs into the closet, where they’d gathered dust for years, out of frustration with the golf swing.

Tiger Woods’ Story In This Golf Magazine Piece

I found the below article posted on Golf.com, and it’s ironic that my comment exchange with HarleyWeedWhacks only yesterday touched on this precise issue.

The piece deals with golfers tending to reverse-pivot on the back swing as they get older, due to loss of flexibility, especially in the lower body, and how not to fall victim to it.

Here’s Something Silly…

Let me run something past everyone, because I can’t wrap my brain around the logic of what Modern Golf Swing proponents are always saying.

I’m talking about the restricting of the hip turn in the back swing by keep that leading heel firmly planted on the back swing, all to promote more stability and therefore consistency in the golf swing.

Checking In On Bryson DeChambeau (It Isn’t The Putting)

You’ve probably seen a lot more of Bryson DeChambeau in ads and features than you have on the leaderboard since he turned pro, and the prevailing sentiment has been that his problems have to do with putting.

I disagree, and just want to throw some names and numbers up to illustrate why I do – his putting is terrible, yes, but likely stems from his other problems.

Another Wax Nation Citizen Drops In

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.

Close To Peak MCS – Here’s The Link

OK, I actually wrote the last posting before I went to the range this morning, and I’m really getting good at hitting balls while half-frozen – I actually had to blow into my hands today at times, between swings – but here is the good stuff.

I talked about the link between that high-heel back swing and the low-heel impact, but I’ve never put it together in my own swing in this way… follow me below the fold!

I’ve Found The Link (1+2+3)

I’ve been holding off saying anything until I was close to performing my personal “perfect swing” mechanical action, which means perfect for myself, and not perfect as in the machine analogy.

But, it’s probably time to give everyone the heads-up, as I’ve always said I don’t hold anything back – I did hint on it, after all, with my “E = MCS” musings during the winter months.

Day 1 Right-Dominant Leading Leverage – Irons

I am still not posting video of swings as I said previously, because the changes are so significant in the work I’m doing day to day that any video I post would be obsolete the next day.

I do have some gifs however of some iron swings to go with the Driver swings posted on Sunday, from three angles (5 Iron), and I have done some more work since then, so the next swings I show will be even closer to my vision.

Sergio Garcia, Masters Champ @ 37!

I don’t know if you remember, but I posted on Sergio Garcia’s swing model a couple of months¬†back, when he won the Dubai Desert Classic in February.

Therein, I compared Sergio at 37 to Tiger Woods at 38 (the age TW was when he broke his back working with Sean Foley), surprise, surprise!! Sergio just won his maiden major tournament, at the old age of 37…
