I wrote about Francesco Molinari’s great Classic Golf Swing model when he won the Quicken Loans last summer and then in the same month, the Open Championship, and while I’ve never heard anything he has to say about the swing…
This is not a scold but what I would call valuable advice, when it comes to swinging a golf club according to the MCS Golf Swing theory.
Now, you may have decided already that you’re getting enough out of it to not have to follow the address procedure and mechanical actions to the letter, but if you’re not doing so and struggling with your ball-striking, then that is the reason.
I guess anyone watching the weekend’s WGC Bridgestone Invitational noticed that the announcers seems to be focused on Tiger Woods and his apparent stiffness, lack of energy and other things on the weekend.
I will admit that I only saw much of him on Thursday, because the weekend had me busy with family things and working on the “MCS – The Kinetic Chain” video.
I said a while back that the “One Major Move” was even simpler than I had originally thought it was when I devised it as the back swing pivot mechanical action.
I am not even there yet in simplifying my own move, because the nature of making swing changes is such that, even when you “feel” you’re making that move here or there in the swing, most likely you’re closer to your old action than the new, when you check the video.
As my long time readers know, I have always had issues with my down swing plane and club path through impact.
There were two reasons, the first of which I’ll address first here – that I have a spinal deformity that twists my shoulders open when standing straight, leading to a steep down swing plane (what people call “over the top”) in the past, as well as a downward or negativeAttack Angle into the ball with the Driver.
One could say “six of one” and “half a dozen of the other,” when comparing my two Driver shot data series, if you overlook one important factor.
Everything was the same – the Launch Monitor (the Foresight GC Quad), the balls (same facility, so the Sxrixon balls would have been the same, whatever brand they were), the same driver (the Callaway Rogue Sub-Zero), and then you get close to identical top club and ball speeds.
