This Would Be The Greatest Swing Model

I hypothesized a few years ago about my vision of the Classic Golf Swing having the regular pivot action on the back swing, but with a Mike Dunaway-esqe leverage and impact position, which never came to fruition.

After several attempts at it, and a whole summer spent on it, I nearly gave up on it – actually, I did give up on it until this morning when, while going back and forth between the Classic and the Post-Modern, I began to make some very fast Classic pivot swings and then noticed something.

No Coincidences – Greg Norman Best Persimmon Driver Ever

When it comes to the Classic Golf Swing, I’ve always used Jack Nicklaus as an example of a near-optimal motion, but there’s someone else who has been overlooked, even though I mention him quite a bit.

That person is Greg Norman, who is considered to be the best ever driver using a persimmon club when you take into account driving distance and accuracy.

The Modern Golf Swing In Tweets

First off, this is not a personal attack on anyone featured below, whether it be golfer, analyst or instructor. My beef is with the entire industry.

I’ve been seeing a lot of Tweets regarding young Will Zalatoris after his maiden PGA Tour win.

I also got a look at his swing today, because as you all know, I almost never watch Tour golf on the television anymore due to heartburn and mental health hazards.

MCS Classic Golf Swing – Weight “Transfer” & The C7 Rotation Point

Words definitely matter when you’re speaking or writing about the swing, because if the diagram, picture or video were sufficient, we’d simply watch and implement, wouldn’t you agree?

In that regard, let’s just get rid of the word “shift” when it comes to the Classic Golf Swing, particularly the MCS version of it, because there is no “shift” in the optimal swing.

Here’s One Reason People Use Too Much Leading Arm (Throw The Club)

One of the reasons I was able to drive a golf ball 350 yards and up back in my late 30s and early 40s even while swinging with too much leading arm (left-dominant) was because I knew where impact was.

I may have been guilty of trying to pull the club through impact with the leading arm while still trying to hit the ball with my right hand – when I didn’t do it perfectly, I would smash the ball 350 yards, but when I did do it perfectly, I snap-hooked the ball off the planet or sliced it over 2 fairways.

I Think Double-Crossed Swinging Is A Huge Factor Even For Right-Handers

I’m referring of course to the right-handed golf swing, so lefties swinging lefty would be the same thing here if you are left-handed and swing left.

But in the land of hockey, there are so many more right-handed Canadians who play golf left-handed than the average nation.

Light Club Swing Should = Heavy Club Swing

I’ve said that the scourge of Modern Golf Swing instruction and practice is that people who have no business injuring themselves swinging feather-weight clubs in the modern age are doing so.

I mean, how do you hurt yourself swinging today’s driver?

How To Complicate A Golf Swing

I’ve finally figured out what it is that has certain swingers jumping off of their leading foot through impact.

I know, I’ve already said it has to do with them not shifting their weight to the leading foot on the down swing, but there’s more at play here than just that one thing.

If you asked me what the issue is in a nutshell, I’d say, “Let’s go for a spin.”

Driving The Ball 350 Yards With My Left Arm

You may ask me why I have fought so hard to fix my left-dominant right-handed golf swing if I could drive the ball 350 yards and beyond doing it that way.

In a word, because I hate disasters.
