Look At This Grip! (And Setup Much Improved)

I didn’t hit a ball for three weeks, working instead on something that was bothering me about the setup and grip.

I was to have gone back to the range after a week following the last session but weather and life intervened, but I made it back out today, and what a change!

There’s Leverage And Then There’s Leverage

I’ve had some exciting breakthroughs in the 10 sessions swinging this season, but I don’t think I’m at the end of the line yet when it comes to leverage.

Basically, I’ve been reducing my left-side impulses, bit by gradual bit, to where I have crossed from swinging left-armed to more right-dominant, but I’m still seeing too much left side influence in both the back pivot and down swing.

“Simple & Smart” Golf Swing Breaks Golfer’s Back

It’s amazing how everyone in the Modern Golf Swing industry seems to be unable to analyze golf swings except for results-driven praise or condemnation of said motion.

When is the first or last time you actually heard a golf analyst or instructor say that a certain pro’s golf swing was problematic or an injury risk?

Tom Weiskopf’s Awesome MCS Type Swing

If you’ve never looked closely at the great recently departed Tom Weiskopf’s golf swing, or haven’t in a while, you’ll be very pleased to look at it.

In fact, other than one nit-pick, I would be hard-pressed to find anything in this man’s swing action or setup.

This Driver Swing Was Pretty Good…

There are some nice things I see in one particular face-on driver swing I shot on Tuesday, with regards to setup and pivot action.

Of course, because I got so many things right, it was a blast, and I would have thought it was close to perfect from the face-on angle of it.

It’s Been A While – Irons Face-On & DTL (9i,7i &5i)

The reason you have seen mostly driver swing videos on the blog for some time is because of my work finishing the modeling and my own swing action regarding the MCS Classic Golf Swing model.

The driver is (for most) the most difficult club to control, so for me, while working on either the model or my own swing, I know where I am by how I’m hitting the driver.

Even When Not Perfect – You Can Be Pretty Good (Two 5 Irons @ TXG The Same Distance)

I’ve been looking through my removed posts and found the one I had on my 5 irons at the TXG facility back in 2018, when I was just getting numbers for my clubs.

Now, you all know I’m not happy with how I swung the club back in 2018, because of two things specifically, the left-dominant setup/action and my grip.

Down & Through, That Is The Purpose

Game versus Sport, the eternal balancing act of golf, dictates that even mechanically-iffy swings can be successful given good impact conditions and an overall great short game.

But there is a reason you don’t see anyone anywhere swinging like Moe Norman, the man who could hit the ball practically dead straight – and we’re talking so little side-spin that the first time Moe was ever analyzed on a launch monitor, it was thought to be malfunctioning.

Paddy Harrington’s Impressive (And Frightening) Move

This swing apparently produced a 367 yard drive, but a grain of salt warning, it was on a Scottish links course (the King’s Course at Gleneagles in Scotland) and we know how the ball runs half the distance of the total drive (joking, but close) … but anyway…

Padraig Harrington is the swinger in question here, and by the PGA Champions Tour caption, they apparently think his footwork is to be admired (we know they wouldn’t insult a player in their feature Tweets, so we have to assume a positive tone here).
