Tom Watson’s Words of Wisdom

tom watson topOriginally Posted Dec 12, 2015.  Re-posted in honor of Tom Watson as he announces his retirement at 69 from Champions Tour major play.

I’ve said before that golf will never be taken seriously as a “sport” (although it was for a brief period during the height of the Tiger Woods era) because it doesn’t follow the same athletic principles.

Gee… The Classic Golf Swing Is “Genius??” Phil Mickelson/Golf Digest

While it’s nice to think that the Classic Golf Swing is genius, it’s simply the proper way to swing a golf club.

However, if Phil Mickelson is a genius for swinging that way, then maybe all of you MCS Golf Swing followers owe yourselves a round of applause!

My Favorite PGA Tour Player Swing – Luke List

On this PGA Championship moving day, I thought I’d look back at a particular golf swing of a player currently T4 going into Round 3..

With all of my personal angst regarding finding and building an “optimal” golf swing, I would like to stress in this posting that “optimal” simply means to me, the best possible swing action you can make with regards to efficiency, speed production and accuracy/consistency.

That doesn’t mean that a swing that isn’t “optimal” is bad – when I say a swing is mechanically-sound, but not optimal, I mean that I fully endorse a swing action like that but that it could be even better.

A hearty thanks to Mr. McJohn, who found the following clip on Youtube and forwarded it to me this morning.

I was very pleased to see some changes in Cameron Champ’s setup and mechanics in the rear view of his driver swing – let’s take a look, shall we?

Modern Golf Strikes Again (Don’t Flare The Leading Foot) – Perhaps The Dumbest Thing I’ve Read On The Swing

I received the article from 2 people already (thanks C.R. & David D.), because once again, WAX Golf readers know more about a proper golf swing than the so-called “swing gurus” who publish things or talk about the golf swing on TV/Radio.

I can’t be polite about this, because if knowing proper golf swing mechanics required a university or college degree, these people would fail freshman year, and they’re teaching people.

New Skype With Fluffy The Man – “Drop The Shoulder”

I am posting another full Skype session with Fluffy a.k.a. T.Ferguson, from yesterday.

There is more to the title, but the essential element I got out of what Fluffy can do to get more power out of his natural swing action is the “dropping the shoulder” action that goes hand-in-hand with the aggressive move into the leading side.

If You Want To Know Why Ian Poulter Is Playing Better..

I have an observation that one of WAX Nation passed on to me with regards to Ian Poulter’s swing on weekend (thanks A.M.!).

I would hazard a guess that some of it has to do with renewed focus and commitment, but this is a guy who nearly lost his Tour card before suddenly going on a tear this year, making the semi-finals in the WGC Matchplay and then winning the Houston Open yesterday!

More Failed Golf Swing Analysis From CBS – Luke List “Flat-Footed”

I kid you not.

I was watching the CBS broadcast of the Honda Classic yesterday and two separate WAX Golfers emailed me on something that I had also noticed – you can not put anything past my sharp-eyed readers!

Jon Rahm Is Looking Monstrous

I was struck by Jon Rahm’s swing and power yesterday when I took in a bit of the Dean & Deluca at Colonial.

He first came to the attention of many with his power shank off the tee with an iron last summer at the Quicken Loans, but what I saw yesterday was a much better move than what I saw back then.
