DJ’s 1st Swing Clip For 2017! 3 Angles

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.

June 18th 2005 – April 19, 2017 – The Day I’ve Been Awaiting

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.

I’ve Found The Link (1+2+3)

I’ve been holding off saying anything until I was close to performing my personal “perfect swing” mechanical action, which means perfect for myself, and not perfect as in the machine analogy.

But, it’s probably time to give everyone the heads-up, as I’ve always said I don’t hold anything back – I did hint on it, after all, with my “E = MCS” musings during the winter months.

More Visual Proof – MCS Swing Theory

OK friends, we’ve been fortunate in the Greater Toronto Area and have missed the season-ending snowstorm with barely a dusting of snow.

For example, a city further to the southeast on the shore of Lake Ontario (Hamilton) got 30-40 cm or 12″-15,” and I sure didn’t want that with spring less than a week away!

The Floating Pivot – Think “Balancing A Tire…”

post-impactThere 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?

Nicklaus +Hogan + Dunaway = The Perfect Swing Model

jn-addrAs 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.

Thanks For Being There – 2017 Is Nearly Here!

stancesI 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.

I Improved Someone’s Quality Of Life??

larry before & after dtlThat 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?

For the worse, it’s pretty easy.

But helping to improve one’s quality of life?

Ryan Steenberg’s A-1 Long Drive Swing

rsIf you watched last week’s World Long Drive Championship, you would have seen very good form from the two Finalists.

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).

RIP Arnold Palmer (RePost)


arnold-palmer-630-400** Originally posted to the DJ Watts Golf blog June 6th, 2012 – edited slightly to remove irrelevant references/terms and to include the most recent ones /update


As promised, I’m writing a post on the golf swing of the great Arnold Palmer, and although I said it wouldn’t be pretty, that really only applies to AP’s follow-through action.
