Today was my first day back at the range since September 1st of last year, making it 9.5 months since I hit a golf ball!
Fortunately, when you have a mechanically-correct swing model (the optimal one is the best to strive for of course), it shouldn’t take you a long time to find the groove again if you’ve been on a short, middling or long break.
It may be a bit harsh describing any part of Lord Byron’s swing as a “flaw,” but there is no other word to describe a part of his setup except perhaps “change this to that, and it’s virtually perfect.”
So with apologies to one of my favorite swings of all time, let’s have a look at the swing that is historic for the following reasons:
You may think it’s an odd question, but it’s a question for the serious, want to learn a proper swing person to consider.
The reason I ask is because you can play golf with ANYtype of golf swing, good, bad, horrific, and you can play it very well if you’re prepared to practice endlessly to develop a repeating move with all of the flaws contained in an “anything goes” swing.
If you’re looking for longevity & a career that isn’t constantly derailed or even ended prematurely by injury, do yourself a favor if you’re swinging in the Modern Golf Swing style – take Phil Mickelson’s advice & switch to a Classic Model.
Phil yesterday only became the oldest male golfer to win a Major, taking the 2021 PGA Championship, and it’s not a surprise that he did it with a Classic Golf Swing action.
I don’t know if I ever shared these swings from June 19th, 2019, but the reverse diagonal view of the driver swing using the MCS Classic Golf Swing model shows very vividly the “Pressure Plate” concept of the pivot actions.
You don’t need muscle & gym training to swing a golf club with speed, this you know from me, who hasn’t seen the inside of a gym since ’02 (and it shows, I know).
I have some irons on video from the same day in October of 2019, which was the last day I shot video on the MCS Classic Golf Swing model before switching to working on the MCS Post-Modern model in the off-season.
Again, not over the moon with these after 18 months to work on my action for both models, but as good as I was swinging at the time.
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.
Thanks to everyone who has purchased a video download, your support of the site is much appreciated!
It’s been a while since I posted iron swings so I went back to 2019 (so strange to have to go back 2 years since I was on hiatus last year, but here we are), even though I’m pretty sure the action will be visibly different this season.
Reason being, you don’t work on your swing for two years without showing a marked difference, such as my takeaway & down swing planes.
