Cameron Champ Swinging More Classic Than Modern Now!

A hearty thanks to Mr. McJohn, who found the following clip on Youtube and forwarded it to me this morning.

I was very pleased to see some changes in Cameron Champ’s setup and mechanics in the rear view of his driver swing – let’s take a look, shall we?

Kinesiology/Biomechanics Specialists – Where Are Your Swing Models?!?

This is the thing that really aggravates me whenever I hear about a kinesiology or biomechanics specialist who is working in the field of golf – they are always looking at golfers’ swings and telling you what the swinger is doing, but they never tell you what the golfer should be doing better or what the optimal mechanical action is or should be.

Molinari’s Swing Coach Has “The Formula” – Guess What It Is…

I blogged a few posts last year on Francesco Molinari winning the Quicken Loans and also the Open Championship with his excellent Classic Golf Swing action.

Well, imagine my amusement when I tweeted on the perils of the Modern Golf Swing last week and received a response from Molinari’s swing guru, Mr. Denis Pugh, on the merits of swinging in the Classic style:

How Bad For You Is The Modern Golf Swing? Bad As A CONTACT SPORT Study Reports

Thanks to David D. for sending this to me – more bad news for the Modern Golf Swing industry, as it seems more medical researchers are catching up with the snake-oil and bad science of restricted-hip back-torquing.

This Is Big – Golf Digest Publishes The “X-Factor” Study

Well, I had just told Mr. McJohn in a comment yesterday not to hold his breath on any major golf publications or channels discussing the results of the so-called “X-Factor” study we read about in the BBC

And lookie here, friends – Golf Digest through GolfWorld courtesy of Joe Beall has just published a piece online doing exactly that:

Science Now Says – Modern Golf Swing Destroys Your Back

Thanks to everyone who emailed/messaged about the following news piece, as I hadn’t yet seen it when I began getting your forwards!  Once again, WAX Golf readers are on the ball.

While the title actually says, “X-Factor Golf Swing Linked To Back Pain,” you can’t have pain without damage, and if you’re damaging your back doing something repeatedly over a period of years – you’re going to destroy it.

No Wonder Tiger Woods Keeps Double-Crossing His Fade

This wouldn’t be the 1st thing that has Tiger Woods double-crossing himself – the whole “swing left” move where you’re coming down on plane and then trying to yank the club left at impact.

How can anyone be surprised when the ball goes left?!?

Modern Golf Strikes Again (Don’t Flare The Leading Foot) – Perhaps The Dumbest Thing I’ve Read On The Swing

I received the article from 2 people already (thanks C.R. & David D.), because once again, WAX Golf readers know more about a proper golf swing than the so-called “swing gurus” who publish things or talk about the golf swing on TV/Radio.

I can’t be polite about this, because if knowing proper golf swing mechanics required a university or college degree, these people would fail freshman year, and they’re teaching people.

Francesco Molinari Does It Again – MCS Principles!

I wrote about Francesco Molinari’s great Classic Golf Swing model when he won the Quicken Loans last summer and then in the same month, the Open Championship, and while I’ve never heard anything he has to say about the swing…

Hitting It As Far With Less Effort (Cameron Champ)

I wrote a post about Cameron Champ’s prodigious length last week and made the point that he could indeed get even more distance out of his swing with better impact conditions.

However here is a point un-made that I think is even more valid: he doesn’t really need more distance, but with an improvement to his impact conditions (and shall I say, swing model), he could get the same distance with less effort.
