Cameron Tringale Does The Opposite Of “Jump For Power” & Sets Speed Increase Record

File this under the “Doing The Opposite Of Modern Golf Instruction Will Improve Your Performance” category, and if there wasn’t one before, there is now.

PGA Tour player Cameron Tringale, according to the PGA Tour, set an all-time mark in the stat “Year Over Year Speed Increase,” making a jump from 111.28 mph to 119.94 mph in one year.

If You’re A “Puller,” It’s Correct Action But On The Wrong Angle

That’s right – all of the people who are angst-ridden and feel you’ll never be able to swing powerfully because you “pull” the club down from the top, are actually not making the wrong motion.

It’s just that “pullers” fail to properly sequence the down swing (although a lot of it has to do with the setup and back swing pivot rather than what happens on the down swing) and pull on the wrong angle.

A Summer Of “Low Impact Heel” Investigation Now Bears Fruit

I mentioned in an earlier posting that I had made several new discoveries in the subtleties within the standard model of the MCS Golf Swing.

I suppose the early days seemed so much more fruitful than the past couple of years have been, due to the diminishing number of things to investigate and clarify.

Joaquin Niemann – Back & Knee Problems On The Way?

I got a look at the newest PGA Tour winner’s golf swing and Joaquin Niemann’s action is certainly impressive.

Looking at his pivot and follow-through, I can only wonder how long it takes before either back and/or knee problems begin to appear. Continue reading

“He’s Going To Break An Ankle Soon…” How Times Change!

You are not dreaming if you have been thinking that this whole “flying foot syndrome” used to be considered a swing flaw.

I can show you a swing clip of a long-hitting (formerly named) Buy.com/Nationwide/Web.com (now Korn Ferry Tour) player who averaged 339.3 yards off the tee in 2003, and the comments regarding his footwork are very interesting.

Time Catches Up To Dustin Johnson’s Left Knee (Modern Swing Injury)

Unless it comes out that Dustin Johnson injured his left knee coming down awkwardly from dunking in his bare feet, you can lay his left knee surgery at the feet of the Modern Golf Swing madness.

Considering he’s a very powerful swinger with a Gumby-like gift of flexibility, he actually got away with it far longer than he should have. Continue reading

Miscellaneous Findings Re: The MCS Golf Swing

As you all know, I’ve been looking into various aspects of the MCS Golf Swing model to ensure that there is a blueprint for producing one’s desired “optimal” golf swing within it.

There are a few things I’ve come across that could have been surprising but were, on second thought, absolutely logical, and that’s what you want – to be able to understand/explain the reasoning behind “how” and “why.”
