I noticed the odd time that I saw Tiger Woods driving (with driver, not a 3 wood or iron) that I was either dreaming or he had dropped off drastically in ball speed, measuring in the low 170s mph, when he’d been topping 180 mph regularly last season.
When I went to check his average club and ball speed for this current season however, I was shocked by the degree of drop-off.
In the “MCS – The Kinetic Chain” video, I continued the theme of leveraging the pivot with the “One Major Move” which I introduced in the “E = MCS”swing video.
I had also addressed the nature of how to leverage with the “One Exercise”drill with the Kettle Bell, and below you can see the proof of a tighter pivot when I actually swing the Kettle Bell as if making a golf swing.
I’ll leave out the parts with which I disagree (such as the “swing left” stuff and the “use the ground” of course, because everyone does, unless they’re levitating), but if you look at big driver Jon Rahm, a lot of what he’s saying goes hand-in-hand with my MCS Golf Swing philosophy or principles.
I guess there’s no better proof to show that if you swing according to the MCS Golf Swing model, you’ll have a consistent swing bottom than by just showing it.
Even if you don’t have the new “MCS – The Kinetic Chain” video, where I delve deeper into the aspects of the the swing as demonstrated in the “E = MCS”swing video, the initial video in the last trio of videos gives you the stance and mechanics to make what I’m doing below a part of your swing.
I showed some data from May where I had gone to the TXG Golffacility in Toronto to show how the MCS Golf Swing model allowed me to drive the ball well upwards of 300 yard and to also create a positive Attack Angle to maximize drive distance.
I said in last year’s video on the golf swing, “E = MCS,” that the mechanics of the back swing pivot could be broken down into a very simple concept, which I termed the “One Major Move.”
When I began to look at my own “plane” with the left arm at the top and the down swing “slot,” I discovered that not only is the “One Major Move”the best way to make your pivot, it’s also the best way to swing on plane when you do it the way the model dictates.
As promised, here is some video from yesterday’s session with Driver seen from 4 different angles.
After smashing some mammoth drives with baby draws, I loved what I saw on video when I got home, and one swing struck me in particular – in the face-on swing (the 3rd in the sequence), I couldn’t believe the speed in the transition from the top down to impact.
