The “One Major Move” Is More Than “The Move”

Thanks to everyone for your feedback and compliments on the new eBook “The MCS Golf Swing,” everyone!

Now that we have everything in place for the 2018 season with regards to the study material on the MCS Golf Swing, I have just one thing to discuss with everyone who is working on their MCS swings.

Modern Golf & Tiger Woods Syndrome – The “Drop”

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.

John Daly – Still An All-Time “3 To 9”

If you’re looking to see how much power and speed you can generate when you get a proper down swing release action from the “3 To 9” phase, John Daly is still an all-time example.

Hips & Legs + Stable Head = Awesome Leverage

For those of you looking for that awesome leverage demonstrated by the likes of Jack Nicklaus in his heyday, I have good news for you.

It can be naturally produced with the simple equation I’ve given you in the post title.

Watch Ben Hogan’s “3 To 9” Action

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.

Greg Norman Describes Ben Hogan’s (And The MCS) Perfect Pivot

I found the following clip on Youtube yesterday, and I can’t believe that no one ever talks about the mechanics of the greatest driver ever on the PGA Tour in the persimmon age.

Greg Norman, when you combine distance, power and accuracy and longevity, is considered to be that man.

Tom Watson Would Definitely Love MCS

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!

So, I Was Banging My Head Against The Wall & It Hit Me…

Not a concussion – I wasn’t banging it that hard, but what hit me was the simplest, most effective way to illustrate the “floating pivot” action of the MCS back swing.

It was a “drill,” if you will, complete with that “one major move” meme that has come to life with the mechanics.

This wouldn’t be the same wall as the one you saw in “Kinesiology of the MCS Golf Swing,” either…

It Has Always Been About Position

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 Position and 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.

Quiet Swing = Gross Motor Over Fine

There is a problem with an “unquiet” swing, or one that uses a lot of little movements to perform the action.

I’m referring of course to compensations, the more of which you have, the harder it will be to make consistently good golf swings, especially under pressure.
