1st Day At The Range In 9.5 Months! MCS Swing Classic Swing

dj topToday was my first day back at the range since September 1st of last year, making it 9.5 months since I hit a golf ball!

Fortunately, when you have a mechanically-correct swing model (the optimal one is the best to strive for of course), it shouldn’t take you a long time to find the groove again if you’ve been on a short, middling or long break.

Byron Nelson’s Nearly Flawless Swing Action

bn topAs per P.A.’s request:

It may be a bit harsh describing any part of Lord Byron’s swing as a “flaw,” but there is no other word to describe a part of his setup except perhaps “change this to that, and it’s virtually perfect.”

So with apologies to one of my favorite swings of all time, let’s have a look at the swing that is historic for the following reasons:

Do You Want To Play Golf As A GAME Or As A SPORT?

mike trout top golfYou may think it’s an odd question, but it’s a question for the serious, want to learn a proper swing person to consider.

The reason I ask is because you can play golf with ANY type of golf swing, good, bad, horrific, and you can play it very well if you’re prepared to practice endlessly to develop a repeating move with all of the flaws contained in an “anything goes” swing.

Prediction – MCS Swingers Will Never Have To Worry About “Swing Plane”

dj swing plane 2019That’s a pretty big statement coming from someone who developed a significant problem with swing plane & club impact path nearly from the moment I picked up a golf club at the age of 25.

Before I tell you why I’m predicting this, a little personal progression story first.

By the time I even heard about “swing plane,” I was already well-acquainted with the term “over the top,” because I was a left-handed person swinging a club right-handed.

The MA/MD Visuals Didn’t Work For Me

dunaway planes dtlThe work has continued on the MCS Post-Modern Golf Swing model during this never-ending local lockdown, which I’m now hearing will be extended from its previously extended date of May 21st to the beginning of June.

It’s possible I won’t be able to actually test-drive this model until July if things continue, but I’m making the best of the down time with the work on this model.

The “Pressure Plate” Action Powers The Classic Swing

dj finish rev diagI don’t know if I ever shared these swings from June 19th, 2019, but the reverse diagonal view of the driver swing using the MCS Classic Golf Swing model shows very vividly the “Pressure Plate” concept of the pivot actions.

You don’t need muscle & gym training to swing a golf club with speed, this you know from me, who hasn’t seen the inside of a gym since ’02 (and it shows, I know).

Flashback – DJ’s Setup & Swing 2015 vs 2019

dj drv addr 2015 - 2019It’s interesting to go back to see what was going on with the MCS Classic Golf Swing model over the years.

I found a driver swing from June 2015 that shows the changes I’ve made to the model & my own swing from 2015, when I produced the “Kinesiology Of The MCS Golf Swing” video, to the current model laid out in 2017’s “E = MCS.”
