Leading Side Action – Recommended Drill

I would recommend the following drill whether or not you are a left-dominant swinger or right-dominant – in other words, swinging with the leading arm only will definitely aid your swing mechanics, whichever side you’re dominant.

In fact, I remember when John Daly had his “Daly Planet” show on the Golf Channel back around 2005 or so – he showed his warm-up one time, and he always warmed up hitting wedges with his left arm only.

The Leading Side Action (Left Handed Only)

I’ve been looking for a good left-handed swing action to illustrate the isolated arm swinging the golf club, and I remembered seeing Mike Austin’s demonstration of it in the Pico Rivera video.

Now, I’ve been saying for years, since I finished the MCS Golf Swing model especially, that the only real difference between the Mike Austin swing model and that of MCS is in the stance and head motion during the back pivot.

Leading Side Leverage = Pulley/Winch/Gears

Because of the nature of the difference between the body and actual machines, it’s not a perfect analogy, but you can consider this – when used properly, the leading side produces leverage for the down swing that is akin to a pulley or winch, which emulates the gear action of a machine.

Mike Dunaway’s Leverage

If you think think that being a right-dominant swinger doesn’t require you to use the left or leading side equally, think again.

I took a super slo mo of the Mike Dunaway “stick-man” swing to show his down swing transition and the “drop” that he made into the “3 O’Clock” position.

The Simplest Model Is The Most Powerful, Etc…

If I’ve learned anything about models and motion in my near-14 years of research and analysis on the golf swing, it’s that the simpler, the better, with one caveat – retaining mechanical soundness or correctness.

Which means, the less moving parts you have in the model, the better it will function, until you remove too much and make it mechanically-unsound.

When You Get Both Sides Sync’d – The Leverage Is Huge

It boggles my mind that, whatever I’ve managed to do with my golf swing motion in the past 13.5 years since beginning my research, my longest drives and highest club speeds may actually still lie before me.

At 48 going on 49 (next March), that is pretty heady stuff. However, knowing what I’ve been working on and the breakthroughs I’ve made with my own motion to get even closer yet to the MCS Golf Swing model theory – it could be true, even with the decline brought on by Father Time.

I Went Back And Looked @ My Baseball Swing From 2013

A side item in these quiet days before the new season gets underway in 2019:

Back in the summer of 2013, I was toying with the idea of putting out the “MCS Baseball” swing model, because I searched and searched and searched on Youtube for any model to which I could compare what I felt was the proper action.

The Tight Top Position – Remember The Mallet From “MCS Kinesiology?”

I always go back and look at various videos or pictures from previous blog postings or MCS Golf Swing videos.

Just as I suspected, when I went back to the 2015  “Kinesiology Of The MCS Golf Swing” today, I found yet another thing that conforms to my “aha” moment on the “tight top position” on the back pivot.

I Proved That My “Tighter” Pivot Was Equal To/Greater Than… Now I Know How

It’s one thing to say, “a tight pivot will give you as much power or more than one that is less tight or looser,” and it’s another thing to actually prove it, as I did

It’s another kettle of fish altogether however to know why and how the tighter pivot is greater than a looser one, and the reason or mechanism was staring me right in the face!

Looking At The “Push” & “Throw” Aspects Of The Down Swing

I’ve been working on my pivot in the down days of the off-season and once again, because I’m always lagging behind the MCS Golf Swing theory in practice, I’m only now beginning to really get into the “tight pivot” aspects of the leveraged down swing.
