Brain Twist – Leverage In Down Swing Comes From Swinging UP…

The Advance Order offer will end in the next few days – another “Thank You!” to everyone who has taken advantage of the discount and ordered their copy of the upcoming “MCS – Synchronicity” video in Advance.

Here’s something that will twist many peoples’ brains – you get the most leverage, speed & power in the down swing by swinging UP.

Cameron Champ vs Brooks Koepka (Technique vs Muscle)

This is not, I will say off the bat, any comparison between skill level or ability – people are always confusing swing technique versus the overall game or ability of a swinger and the two are not the same.

I have been looking at Cameron Champ’s down swing to impact however and have compared it to Brooks Koepka’s and this is the thing:

Cameron Tringale Does The Opposite Of “Jump For Power” & Sets Speed Increase Record

File this under the “Doing The Opposite Of Modern Golf Instruction Will Improve Your Performance” category, and if there wasn’t one before, there is now.

PGA Tour player Cameron Tringale, according to the PGA Tour, set an all-time mark in the stat “Year Over Year Speed Increase,” making a jump from 111.28 mph to 119.94 mph in one year.

More Proof On Acceleration & Peak Club Speed

I am still shaking my head about the ridiculous claim by Peter Kostis on CBS’ Masters Saturday¬†broadcast, claiming that top club head speed will occur well before impact, and if you still need proof of this, I have it below.

He showed a clip of Brooks Koepka, if you’ll remember, claiming that the analysis machine had B.K.’s top club head speed at¬†126 mph about 18″ or 45 cm before impact, and an actual club impact speed of 120 mph.

Feel Isn’t Real – At First…

I am still waiting for conditions in this area to allow some good swinging and video-taking, but while doing so, I’ve been getting my swing muscles back into shape after a long season off (I haven’t hit a ball in about 9 months to date), and I discovered something surprising today.

I’ve been working on the speed aspect of the pivot, just trying to get raw speed with the SwingRite, and take a look at the top position of my absolute fastest swings through the bottom:

More Junk Science From CBS & Modern Golf (You Won’t Believe This)

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any crazier with Modern Golf Swing concepts and junk science, I saw something this weekend that literally had me shaking my head and laughing during the segment.

I had actually forgotten about it, so silly was the premise, but Walter brought it back to mind yesterday in a comment.

Bridgestone’s BFit Launch Monitor App Looks Really Interesting

After I got my new iPhone this week, I began to research the different Launch Monitors that might be compatible with it.

I was pleased to find something right away that I probably had seen or heard about in passing (I vaguely recall something like this) but ignored as I didn’t have an iPhone at the time.

Swing The Hands, Not The Club Head & Coming This Fall/Winter!

See the bottom of the posting for the “coming” feature.

It may be counter-intuitive to some or most, but the best thing you can try to do with your golf swing is to “swing the hands,” and not the club head.

Cameron Champ Could Be Even Longer (Shot Data)

I wrote about Cameron Champ last year after seeing him in the ’17 U.S. Open, and he’s going to be playing on the PGA Tour next season – which means you may see him pretty soon with the wrap-around season!

Now, there’s no reason that a kid hitting it 350 yards carry distance would need any more distance, but find me one person, even among the longest hitters, who didn’t want more distance with their swings.

Here’s The Deal – A Tight Arc Beats A “Big One.”

First off, I’ve already dealt with the fictional premise of “creating a larger arc” in the back swing.

This is something that you’re told when players make a big shift off the ball in the pivot, or when they swing back keeping the right arm from bending until later in the back swing.
