Couldn’t Take “Using The Ground” BS Anymore – Twitter Rant & Thread Here

I don’t know what it was that made me snap, but I have to constantly bite my tongue to not tell respected people in the golf industry that they don’t know what the hell they’re going on about.

It’s not that I’m afraid to, I just don’t like the road it goes down when you tell someone who is looked up to that they’re full of rubbish.  Bruised egos and whatnot.

Golf Swing Theory – The Search For Truth Is Not A Straight Road

I’ve been troubled by something this entire year while trying to swing along the lines of the MCS Golf Swing model I finalized two years ago.

I also released the MCS Golf Swing eBook 1st Edition last year with the intention of quickly editing and releasing a Final Edition, and I’m very happy that I haven’t yet done so, as I was waiting until I’d finished looking into certain things.

Missing The Big Point Re: Technique & Injuries

I came across an article on Golf WRX that initially gave me hope that people are trying to prevent injuries by looking at prevention a.k.a. fixing swing techniques that raise the risk of injury.

Setup Allows You To Just Swing “And Let The Ball Get In The Way”

This is the concept that the Iron Byron uses, or any other hitting or swinging machine.

The Iron Byron does not “swing at the ball,” rather it just swings the club attached to its arm and the ball simply gets in the way.

Right Arm Dominant Action & Power

I want to show everyone who is right-dominant or not, how effective and powerful it is when you maximize the right arm action in the down swing.

I haven’t yet got out to see if I can complete that last step of my personal swing journey, where I just last week managed to isolate the purely right arm action of the pivot and swing, to the full-body yet right-dominant action.

Gee… The Classic Golf Swing Is “Genius??” Phil Mickelson/Golf Digest

While it’s nice to think that the Classic Golf Swing is genius, it’s simply the proper way to swing a golf club.

However, if Phil Mickelson is a genius for swinging that way, then maybe all of you MCS Golf Swing followers owe yourselves a round of applause!

Tony Finau – “Short Back Swing, Low Impact Heel Power” Exhibit A

If you are looking for a great example of how someone can generate power with a short back swing and proper leverage evidenced by a low trailing heel impact, then look no further than one Tony Finau.

Yes, he’s a very tall player with long limbs (levers), but when you look at how ridiculously short his back swing is and how effortlessly he’s leveraging the club, you will realize that Finau could be monstrous-long, a good deal longer than he already is, with an adjustment or two.

Here’s Why I Do What I Do – PGA Instructor’s Email To Me…

I like to share uplifting stories, and you’ll remember WAX Nation that I mentioned to Fred Greene during our interview for his “Golfsmarter” podcast that when people tell me that I’ve helped them keep playing or begin playing golf again after back issues or other, it makes it all worth while.

I’ve corresponded for a time with a PGA of America instructor out in Arizona, and earlier in the week he emailed me with a great story about the MCS Golf Swing.

Rory McIlroy Discovers Shoulders Follow Hips & Vice Versa

I wrote a few years back that Rory McIlroy might have discovered the key to increasing power through technique when he was spotted letting his leading heel come up during his back swing, but it turned out not to be a permanent thing.

Now, it seems he might be back on a right track, with his apparent discovery that the hips and shoulder are connected.

If Brooks Koepka Lost 6 mph Into Impact, Here’s Likely WHY

Here’s what I saw when I went looking for Brooks Koepka’s 6 mph decrease in club head velocity between 18″ pre-impact to impact, and it should be plain to see for anyone who analyzes motion.

I’ve said before, been saying for years, actually, that when you squat into the address you will restrict hip turn, and when you restrict hip turn on the back swing, your hips will reach impact position before the upper body.
