As I indicated in my comments this week on having “found” something incredible in the MCSmodel, it’s nothing that is new itself to MCS.
It’s my personal journey towards replicating the model in its purest essence that I’m after, as you know, and the thing I’ve “found” is something that anyone will find in applying the principles laid out in the “E = MCS” video on stance and “measuring” oneself to the ball.
Don’t panic, now – there’s nothing new in the MCS model from the “E = MCS”video, as I said there was no further simplification of this model possible afterward.
What I have found is the “key” in the setup that I built for the MCS Golf Swing, ending the long journey from the first crucial piece back in 2014 when I hit upon the right-biased and spine tilt being necessary to the optimal swing model.
I’ve told you all that I’m working out swinging again and that I’ve been pleased with the adjustments I’ve made to my setup – well, here’s something for the MCS swingers regarding two important parts of the setup.
If you are still fighting the feel of the optimal and mechanically-correct address stance, you really need to look at the address stance of the greatest major champion of all time (and 3rd all time in total Tour wins), one Jack Nicklaus.
I have spoken before as well that you should be careful when looking at Jack’s swing because, likely due to the fact that he spent so little time practicing and playing (he did bear, after the nickname of “Legend In His Spare Time” and the reason for the post thumbnail above), he got away from his most solid fundamentals from time to time before getting back to basics.
I saw a swing gif. of Seve Ballesteros yesterday and it reminded me that he was yet another great and gifted player from the Classic Golf Swing era.
Seve was a bit of a hybrid in that he didn’t show much or any lifting heel, but still got the full hip turn that separates the Classic from the Modern swing, and I can show you two things about his swing that made him powerful and long…and wild…
Just some thoughts as I continue work on the upcoming “The MCS Golf Swing”eBook…
The reason I’ve taken so long to “build” a swing that works for me, personally, is because I’ve grown up and played sports where technique was paramount and where you reacted unconsciously on the field of play.
I got an excellent couple of links from DKondo yesterday when we spoke on Skype for about an hour on the swing, to some Youtube videos.
They show Trackman in the process of proving the MCS Golf Swing theory, and what we’ve been talking about for years here – that the proper impact spine angle is rightward tilting rather than the left-biased or vertical spine junk that began with the Modern Golf Swing madness.
