I have compiled a video clip here, showing what are finally fit-for-video swings with my updated MCS Golf Swing with the dominant “pull” action reduced and with the proper “push” action.
I was able to break down and reassemble my swing so quickly this spring (using the “3 Pillars,” formerly “Dropping The Hammer” concept) because I’ve always had the components, but I needed to really nail down the adjusted address position to accommodate my spinal deformity, and I think you’ll all agree that I finally got there.
I dug my golf clubs out of the closet on a Saturday back in 2005, after watching some of the 3rd round of the U.S. Open(won that year by Michael Campbell of New Zealand), and when I got home from the range, I remarked to my wife that I was going to “figure this out, once and for all…“
Those of you who have been reading my blogging on the golf swing (I first began posting back in the late summer of 2007, about two years after that) will know that I had dumped those clubs into the closet, where they’d gathered dust for years, out of frustration with the golf swing.
There are two “floating” terms I use, and the “floating heel,” we know well by now, but what about the “floating pivot??”
When it comes to the “floating pivot” concept that I inserted into the MCS Swing Theory back in the summer of 2014, it may be easier to think of it in this way – what happens when one of your vehicle tires is out of balance?
You get that irritating and rather disconcerting vibration in the entire car when you reach a certain speed, don’t you?
As far as the face-on look of what I would call the perfect golf swing model is actually a composite of the best of the best in the three major phases of the golf swing itself.
You have the starting or address position, then the back swing and finally the down swing/finish phase, and I had crudely put together those three phases in a gif. featuring the three “best of the best” when it comes to a face-on view.
I say “face on” because Nicklaus had a squared stance to the target line viewed down the line and you all know what the MCS Golf Swing Theory says about that.
I don’t have much to say today, except to thank new readers and old for being here and for reading these words.
I have been preoccupied with the projects I’ve mentioned since the end of the summer (the upcoming Amazon eBook, MCS Beyond Perfect Pivot video, which is the last of any video I will produce for my Wax Golf followers, and any future Amazon video project), and I haven’t had much time to reflect on the coming year, which I believe will be special.
That is a humbling experience, because as we go about our daily business, do we ever really give credence or even passing thought to the possibility that we, in that course, may actually change someone’s life?
Everyone has been looking at Joe Miller’s swing, but I wanted to show Finalist runner-up Ryan Steenberg’s swing, because there’s a lot you can learn from it (if you watch any of the MCS Trilogy swing videos, you’ll learn the same things).
