… and went all the way to the other end of it, which didn’t work of course, but I worked my way back and found the middle ground that works, I believe.
I really don’t want to go into details about what I’m doing because, until I actually say there is a new model different from the standard Classic Golf Swing (and the MCS version which was presented in “E = MCS” and subsequent videos), I wouldn’t want people leaving that model.
While working out the model I’ve been building of late, I fell across something that may have solved my issue of “head shift on the back swing or into the down swing, head shift at all or none” that has been on my mind.
First, does anyone remember how Jack Nicklaus used to get over the ball and, just before he began his backswing, he’d tilt his head to a certain spot and then swing?
It was a story of night and day – when I began my session with some adjustments to the stance and pivot action for the swing model I’m building from the ground up with only athletic intuition as a guide, things were very bleak.
I was about 45 minutes in and so frustrated that I wanted to snap my driver over my knee, because it just wasn’t there.
It will be glaringly obvious what this particular heresy of mine is if my next foray to Tracer Golf proves me correct and I make a permanent setup change in this regard.
You see, there is something about conventional golf insisting upon a certain aspect of the setup that has just never sat well with me, but only in the years of my pursuit of Moe Norman (circa 2005-08) did I myself depart from conventional thought.
The ironic thing is, since I play sports right-handed, not just swinging a golf club, if I had been taught a golf swing with a right-dominant motion, I would have picked it up with no issues.
However, having swung left-dominant for so many years, I am finding myself having to really focus on taking the left side bias out of both the setup and the swing action (the impulse to drag the club through with the left arm rather than swing down and through with the right), but I made progress today.
