I posted yesterday about the first of the fulcrum/lever aspects of the mechanically-correct golf swing, the C7 and the shoulder assembly.
It’s the most important one, as it is the one that harnesses all of the leverage potential stored in your body mass.
Additionally for those who might ask “but what about the left or leading arm as a lever?” I would say, “that is absolutely correct – and the leading arm as a lever is directly connected to the leading shoulder, and that is powered by the same action as mentioned with the Kettle Bell example.”
Other than the universally proven fact in all types of sports that a stable head or position improves accuracy and precision where they are needed (would you rather throw a ball at a target while standing still or on the back of a moving truck?).
Below you’ll see a gif. of some positions that jumped out at me while I was making stills for the upcoming video, and remember that these are static pictures of me in motion, and are not positions that I’ve tried to “hit.”
There are two gifs I would like you to look at, until I get video myself of the optimal MCS swing model, where you’ll see virtually the same action as the two Mikes, Dunawayand Austin.
The reason for that is, they had near-optimal models in the featured swings, and if not for the head shift to the right that you would see viewing these swings face-on, this is exactly the way you want to swing and leverage the club.
