I have talked before about how you get a lot of Modern Golf Swing players diving into the down swing, and I’ve alternately called it the “Harpoon”move (that phrase is not mine, but that of Mike Austin’s).
You also hear it talked about on TV as the “head drop,” and this is the funniest part of what I watch & listen to on television – when Tiger Woods was the best in the world, the same drop kept coming up in a positive way.
I have already pointed out one of the elements of Ben Hogan’s golf swing included in the MCS Golf Swing, of course – it wouldn’t be what it is without the “floating pivot” action (fully mobile hips & legs while the head remains stable, “floating in place”) that is the signature move of the model.
In fact, before anyone accuses me of stealing his swing model, of course I didn’t – I don’t really watch instructional videos from even the game’s greatest players because I felt that watching their swings was good enough.
I might have saved myself time from the 12 years of my swing research however, if I had watched certain swingers’ explanations… thanks to Terry who posted a couple of Tom Watson video clips in the comments section of another piece on the swing in response to Jim’s “Aha” moment!
It’s pure and simple, that the actual “secret” to a proper golf swing has always been in the address position, or the “Fundamentals Trifecta,” as I have called the Stance, Ball Positionand Grip for years.
It’s the true formula, and while there have been many golfers in history who might have played brilliant golf with iffy stances, you’ve seen what I have laid out in recent years ago the historically best players and swingers have had strikingly similar stances.
