Why The Tighter Pivot Increases Power

I’ve been going over the mechanics, not content to merely say, “based on what I’ve been researching, the tighter pivot gives you increased power.”

It’s nice to know, but the reasons for this would be helpful to those struggling with issues that they might not think has to do with a pivot that’s less than the tightest they can make it.

“Pushing The Down Swing” Is The Secret To The Tighter Pivot

OK, WAX Nation – time to end the impression that there is anything mysterious about what I’ve been discussing this week.

The truth of it is that everything I’ve been looking at and commenting on, is already in the MCS model – I was just getting the “aha” this past week of exactly why the shorter back swing for me is going to be much more powerful than anything I’ve done in the past with my way-past-parallel position at the top.

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!

Here’s How To Use The SwingRite At The Range (Video)

I don’t always take the SwingRite out of the bag during my range sessions, but when I was investigating the John Daly/Mike Dunaway leverage aspect yesterday, I made sure to take it with me because of the “feel” I had swinging it over the weekend.

More “Dunaway…” More Leverage & Power

I took some cuts today after having worked on the “feel” of that top position where I could get more body leverage, akin to the Mike Dunaway/John Daly type of move.

I’d have to say that, even on the first day, I definitely improved my leverage.  I am almost never in the 170s mph ball speed when I am working on a swing move, but today, I hit up to 178 mph ball speed.

Daly/Dunaway Leverage Is Simply The Ultimate MCS “Drop”

I’ve said before that my modeling of the golf swing, and especially the theory of the MCS Golf Swing model as it stands, was far ahead of my personal execution of the swing.

What I’ve been looking with regards to Mike Dunaway’s and John Daly’s transition move on the down swing is just another example of this.

Leveraging With The Torso – John Daly & Mike Dunaway

As you all know, I love looking at mechanics, and when I see something interesting, I see if I can break it down and duplicate it myself.

I’ve been working on something that has to do with leveraging, and that’s using the torso to create the leverage to produce speed rather than trying to jump out of my shoes with a twisting or turning motion combined with swinging with the arms.

Miscellaneous On Power/Distance On The PGA Tour

I don’t know how many of you roll your eyes when they start raving about driving distances on the telecasts during PGA Tour events, but I have something here that shows just how out of control things are.

We already know that you’re going to get eye-popping numbers when driving the ball on fairways that are cut faster than the average public green, but I have to say, 50 yards roll-out is just silly.

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.
