The “One Major Move” Is Even Simpler Than I Thought

I said in last year’s video on the golf swing, “E = MCS,” that the mechanics of the back swing pivot could be broken down into a very simple concept, which I termed the “One Major Move.”

When I began to look at my own “plane” with the left arm at the top and the down swing “slot,” I discovered that not only is the “One Major Move” the best way to make your pivot, it’s also the best way to swing on plane when you do it the way the model dictates.

The Masters Day 4 – Patrick Reed Brings It Home

(Updated At Bottom With Swing Analysis)

This is likely the best shot Rory McIlroy will have to complete his Grand Slam quest in some time, because how many times will he be 1 shot back of the lead through 2 holes of the Final Round of the Masters?

Not saying he won’t get it done if he falls short today, but you only get so many chances and he’s in prime position to do it.

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.

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-upĀ 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).

So Awesome… The “Hogan Float”

HoganI’ve been looking at Ben Hogan’s swing mechanics more closely now for the first time in years.

Ironically, I started out my swing research in 2005 looking at two swingers, Moe Norman and Hogan himself, nearly nine years ago.
