Stable Head + Getting “Deep” = Leverage

You’ve heard me discussing the aspects of leverage and how to maximize it on the down swing with Fluffy a.ka. TFerguson, and let me show you in my own swing how I do it.

First, you have the stable head on the back pivot, enabled by the MCS Golf Swing’s right-biased “Leaning ‘A'” tilt and proper hip action.

MCS – You Make The “Drop” – Forget About “Rotation”

The thing I love about the proper setup for the MCS Golf Swing model is that 1. It’s designed to fit the individual’s own body type and 2. When you get it right, great things happen.

On that note, for both new and old readers, let me emphasize the importance of that “One Major Move” key to the swing, while you watch the videos and perform your drills.

Video Of My Best Ever MCS Golf Swings (Driver)

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.

The Leading Side “Pull” Should Be Built-In – No Need Think About It

I’ve talked about the golf down swing consisting of a “pull” and “push” sequence, but it could be misleading, so I’ll clarify the first part about the “pull” aspect – it is or should be built-in from your position, back swing pivot and top position.

Think “Swinging Into A Wall” – But It’s Not There…

The problem you get with the way a lot of people are swinging on television, aside from the fact that the result is very unsightly, is that they’re swinging at the ball (especially with the Driver) as if they’re hitting a wall with a hammer but forgetting it’s not actually there.

Luke List – How About That Swing?

If you want to see what I would call a great swing on the PGA Tour (because I don’t say that about many swings in this Modern Golf Swing era), I got a look at Luke List this week.

Another “Most People Get It Wrong” Move – Extension

If you are struggling with your down swing, it’s got to be a very possible things you’re doing incorrectly.

There is, for example, the tendency to try to “hit” the ball from the top of the back swing, but the problem is that you didn’t get to the top the same way.

So, trying to go straight down to the ball from the top leads to the “over the top” move.

A Very Good Point On The “Drop” & “Lag”

I got a very good question from Terry yesterday in the previous posting, where he asked:

DJ, when you say,

” And this (the right elbow having dropped to the hip) is the point where the energy you’ve stored in your right arm and the cocked wrists will release the club down into and through impact.”

Are you actively holding the angle and dropping the rear shoulder into position? Or are you starting the release from the top ie Nicklaus ” you cant release the club to early as long as you are moving into your left side.”
