Francesco Molinari Does It Again – MCS Principles!

I wrote about Francesco Molinari’s great Classic Golf Swing model when he won the Quicken Loans last summer and then in the same month, the Open Championship, and while I’ve never heard anything he has to say about the swing…

Uncut Skype Session W/Fluffy The Man

Here’s something new – I just finished a Skype video session with Fluffy A.K.A. T.Ferguson and he asked me if I’d post the uncut video for WAX Nation to watch.

I have just uploaded the video to Youtube and it’s about 40 minutes long – we’ve had 2 previous sessions in the last few weeks after he’d taken a very extended time off playing golf (I believe 3 years), while he pursued his other passions, travel and motocross.

When Building A House, You Must Follow The Blueprint, Correct?

This is not a scold but what I would call valuable advice, when it comes to swinging a golf club according to the MCS Golf Swing theory.

Now, you may have decided already that you’re getting enough out of it to not have to follow the address procedure and mechanical actions to the letter, but if you’re not doing so and struggling with your ball-striking, then that is the reason.

Why The MCS Swing Leverages With So Little Effort

I keep harping on how position is the key to performing a mechanically-sound golf swing without compensations or manipulations.

If you think about it, the ball is not in motion, and if you are swinging from a fixed point on the ground, then there is really only position from which you can swing to make pure contact without having to engage some or a lot of hand-eye coordination and lateral/vertical motion.

Super Quiet Leverage – Irons Down The Line

If you know anything about balancing car tires, you know that if they are out of balance, you will get vibration or motion (unwanted motion) in them as they turn.

MCS & The Swing Bottom

I guess there’s no better proof to show that if you swing according to the MCS Golf Swing model, you’ll have a consistent swing bottom than by just showing it.

Even if you don’t have the new “MCS – The Kinetic Chain” video, where I delve deeper into the aspects of the the swing as demonstrated in the “E = MCS” swing video, the initial video in the last trio of videos gives you the stance and mechanics to make what I’m doing below a part of your swing.

Ben Hogan’s “Pivot Pivot” Action Was Misunderstood

It is likely because of the phrasing he used to describe his pivot, where he said he didn’t want his hips to move to the right on the back swing.

From there, you likely got the Modern Golf Swing mantra of restricting the hips on the back swing, which is completely off-base when you look at Hogan’s actual swing.

Look At Mike Dunaway’s Leg Action

If you watch Mike Dunaway down the line in the below gif, you’ll see what I’m always harping on with regards to the hips and legs powering the pivot.

I’ve been watching this gif for a different reason, because I can’t get past Dunaway’s swing.

Next On The Menu – Position Provides Mechanics

I’ve said for a long time that swing “tips” don’t necessarily work because if someone has a swing flaw, it almost invariably comes from an incorrect setup.

Now that I’ve fixed my own “top” position with regards to my leading arm and shaft Continue reading
