The 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.
It’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.”
Thanks to all new readers (and old) who’ve purchased your downloads of the MCS Classic Golf Swing video, your support of the blog is much appreciated!
I thought that since the lockdown in our area has shut down the local courses & driving ranges (don’t ask me how one can contract Covid-19 standing on a range ten or more paces from the nearest person in an outdoor setting, because neither I nor anyone else has a clue), I would go over the MCS model from the ground up with some refresher points & logic that either aren’t actually part of video or, if they are, bear repeating.
You’ll remember, those of you who were around the blog back in 2013, that my first post-Mike Austin group swing model was what I called “New MCS” and which featured “The Formula” setup.
Well, I never really looked at the swing model as a “single-plane” one but when I did take a look this week out of curiosity with all the “single-plane swing” talk out there, it was actually a nearly-perfect single plane action when it comes to that particular criterion.
I will admit to having had a few jokes and laughs at Bryson DeChambeau’sexpense with all of the “Mad Scientist”stuff, but I am now actually interested in what he’s doing to some extent, because he’s progressed from when he went pro.
When Bryson turned pro, his swing model was one that I would not have called scientific in the least.
I’ve mentioned how I got around to fixing one thing in my setup that was bothering me, which was an imperfect square neutral grip, and how it instantly tightened my dispersion the very first day out this season.
I’d like to show some visual proof that, when you get the square neutral grip working with a properly measured setup & ball position, you will come to expect square impact and a straight flight or baby draw (unless you’re trying to work the ball another way).
I wanted to mention something last winter when the blog was on hiatus but it slipped my mind with everything else that was going on at the time.
Now, I’d like to share another example of when you don’t want the “do what I say, not what I do” philosophy and show why many people don’t ever improve their ball-striking, whatever they are trying to do to get there.
As I get deeper into Mike Dunaway’s entire swing, I would love you all to see something that blows away all of the stuff you hear about the best swingers having the same shaft plane at both address & impact.
This could have huge ramifications for MCS the swing model, which is why I want to point it out, besides showing yet another example of Modern Golf Swing instructions focusing on things that have little relevance to proper mechanics.
