Back By Popular Demand – Order The EMCS Video Combo

Available Until Tuesday Midnight EST

I had ended the Advance Order offer over a month ago while working on the EMCS2 Follow Up video to “E = MCS,” the swing video.

Due to the number of inquiries, I have decided to put the Combo offer back up as I am nearly finished on the EMCS Follow Up vid (which should, barring production setbacks, be ready by the coming week’s end), with a midway discount (between the original Advance discount and the final release price).

If You’re Looking For Power – BYOKB (Bring Your Own Kettle Bell!)

I have always been pretty good at generating power, most likely due to having participated in half a dozen different sports in my life (organized soccer, baseball, hockey, track & field, basketball and volleyball in school and then golf as an adult) and having to learn proper motion in all of them.

Leverage Is Leverage – Don’t Be Fooled By The “Lighter” Equipment Argument

I have made an issue of how modern technology has made ball-striking much easier, especially with the metal woods and getting the ball in play off the tee with the shoe-box-sized driver heads and lower-spinning, longer flight balls.

One thing that has happened is that you’ll hear Modern Golf Swing proponents saying that “the lighter equipment has changed the way you swing” a golf club, which makes no sense at all.

“Loose Legs” Pt 2 – Swinging “With The Knees”

I have been looking at the action of the hips and legs for the upcoming “EMCS2 – The Follow-Up” video, which again isn’t another “golf swing” video.

Rather, it’s a supplemental to aiding one in implementing and using the MCS swing model presented in the “E = MCS” video which, as I said at the time of release, is the last swing model video I see myself producing.

The “Loose Legs” Concept Of Pivoting

The problem I’ve seen most commonly displayed by various skill levels of swingers with regards the golf swing originates, of course, in the hips and legs.

This would be natural, I assume, because most golfers below a certain age never learned or were shown how to make a proper golf swing pivot using the hips and legs.

When you start out with golf and your instruction (either through lessons or following the television/magazine “tips” on proper swinging) consists of restricting the movement of those hips & legs, it is difficult to overcome that feeling of “looseness” in the lower body as you try to start to pivot with the lower body.

Tiger Woods’ Driver Swing

Thanks to everyone who emailed on Tiger Woods’ Instagram post of his driver swing – nothing like the sound of cicadas in the background to bring back childhood memories of hot and hazy summer dog-days!

So, since you asked for my thoughts…

As far as the swing itself goes, I don’t have much to say about it other than I hope he was swinging to produce a big left-to-right fade, because that takeaway was way outside and that ball seemed to be left going left (unless, as I said, it was a big cut he was hitting).

Grayson Murray Shows Good Form… Throwing…

And yes, this is a tongue-in-cheek posting…

You are always hearing Modern Golf Swing advocates compare the golf swing to various types of throwing, and the PGA Tour showed on their Instagram how the Modern swing principles are bogus, with (of course) a clip of someone showing great form throwing.

Grayson Murray must have had a bad hole on Friday (I wasn’t following this week’s Tour event on television), because what he did after holing out wasn’t exactly a celebration.

Working On The Definitive Swing Guide To The Simplest Golf Swing

I’ve been quiet on the progress of “EMCS2 – The Follow Up” video because I’m focused on the process and it’s also not actually a swing video per se, rather the study guide to the already-completed “E = MCS” swing video which I released in July, and which is The.Simplest.Golf.Swing.Model.Ever.

When I say simplest, I mean of course with the requirement that it be a mechanically-correct swing model, so you could get simpler, I guess, by freezing the hips and legs on the back swing pivot and twisting the lower back – good luck with that, but put in a call to Tiger Woods and various other PGA Tour players like Rory Mack and Jason Day (and all of the journeyman Tour players getting treatment in the therapy trailers before and after their rounds) to ask them how that’s going.

The Curse Of The Rubber Band (Modern Golf Swing Madness)


And no, that’s not a movie title.

The “curse of the rubber band” is the legacy of the Modern Golf Swing theory that you can somehow create elastic power by separating the torso from the hips instead of swinging with the entire body.

I want to show you the dramatic difference between what a properly leveraged golf swing looks like versus one that relies on muscular explosion to generate impact velocity, as if we are made of rubber (which we certainly are not).
