2015 – When The MCS Classic Golf Swing Was Born

I have dug up a couple of driver swings from May of 2015, which was the first year of the MCS Classic Golf Swing model as it is today (with one change from 2015).

In the summer of 2014 I had begun my “Ben Hogan Project,” which gave me so much insight into Hogan’s true pivot action (not the one presented on television and in print or online from clueless pundits) that I implemented it into my model orthodoxy.

Driving The Ball 350 Yards With My Left Arm

You may ask me why I have fought so hard to fix my left-dominant right-handed golf swing if I could drive the ball 350 yards and beyond doing it that way.

In a word, because I hate disasters.

Cross-Dominance In A Golf Swing

One of the reasons I’m excited about my swing research this season is that I am confident (until proof either way) that I’ve solved my cross-dominance issue.

In fact, I am fairly certain (because I’ve always been cross-dominant) that I’ve actually never performed a proper golf swing, mechanically.

This Is Special – And Completely Bogus

Right at the outset, I’m going to give the gentleman doing the analysis and explanation of Bryson DeChambeau’s “pull up, pull down” approach to the swing a break – he’s a PhD but not in the field of Kinesiology or anything else sports related, so he’s a layman here.

That’s important – they really try to pull a fast one here on the viewer by introducing “Dr. XYZ, PhD for the segment, when he essentially wouldn’t be any more of an expert in the discussion than anyone else.

More Musings – New Model Turbo Boosts The “Drop & Pop?”

One of the visuals or “feels” that has survived the MCS Classic Golf Swing era for me is the “Drop & Pop.”

Of course, this makes perfect sense as the optimal golf swing would have zero impeding factors in helping the club face get to the bottom of the golf swing arc.

Jack Nicklaus’ Power – Watch The Weight Shift

I’ve broken that long iron swing of Jack Nicklaus’ from yesterday’s post down into the 2 separate components of the back pivot (loading the trebuchet) and the down swing weight shift (leveraging the trebuchet).

This weekend, you’ll be able to watch all you want of today’s pro players contorting themselves trying to generate power from every wrong way, and you can compare them to Nicklaus’ weight shift leveraging his power effortlessly.

My Left Hip Pt II – Searching Maximum Leverage

Continuing yesterday’s post, I realized yesterday while doing my swing work that my lower left back and back hip area muscles were sore this week in a way I’ve not experienced before.

I thought it was just muscles realigning and being forced to work differently because I was wearing my therapeutic S.I. Belt which was stabilizing my loose left sacroiliac joint, thereby easing load from and transferring load to muscles that had become accustomed to the joint instability.

My Left Hip Is Killing Me – Why That’s A Good Thing

It’s all about leverage and the change I made to my setup a few days ago.

I’ll start by talking about something that seems to be completely random and having nothing to do with the golf swing modeling – I began to experience pain in my left sacroiliac joint a few years ago.
