Jon Rahm With Some Driving Thoughts

I’ll leave out the parts with which I disagree (such as the “swing left” stuff and the “use the ground” of course, because everyone does, unless they’re levitating), but if you look at big driver Jon Rahm, a lot of what he’s saying goes hand-in-hand with my MCS Golf Swing philosophy or principles.

Positive Attack Angle With Negative Shaft Angle

I have said – and will be showing in the upcoming “MCS – The Kinetic Chain” video – how you can create excellent positive Attack Angle (hitting “up” into the ball with the Driver) when you are properly set up with the MCS Golf Swing model.

That of course is how the modern driver is supposed to be utilized.

Hitting The Ping G20 – Oh My… (Gifs)

As you all know, I usually swing to play a fade, because most people will either play a fade or draw depending on how they come through impact.

Today however, I was working on my positioning to get the deepest possible “drop” in my “Drop & Pop,” which makes it easier to shape a draw if you’re a natural fader, and the results were… interesting!

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.

Luke List – How About That Swing?

If you want to see what I would call a great swing on the PGA Tour (because I don’t say that about many swings in this Modern Golf Swing era), I got a look at Luke List this week.

Dustin Johnson’s Ball Speed

dustin numbersUpdated With Newer Swing Clip From June 11

I must confess, I’ll never lose that drive for the maximum distance and power, because I’ve always been a power swinger.

What I set out to figure out, around ten years ago, was how to make that power more consistent and repeatable, so that I could keep the ball in play and, even better, out of trouble with missed shots.

My 373 Yard Drive – Smash Golf Archive

dj-mps-b-impact.jpgOriginally published September 18, 2009

I’ve been doing some stuff getting ready for Easter weekend and seeing if the weather would be good enough to go to the range today, but does’t look good.

I thought I’d post another oldie from the Smash Golf blog when I was playing golf the summer of ’09 rather than doing range work.

Blast From the Past – Driving a 350 Yard Hole

6th-hole-350-yardsIt seems winter is conspiring against me, knowing how eager I am to get back out there for the 2014 season and seeing how it’s still freezing out there.  

At least most of the snow and ice are gone with a recent couple of days above zero, but come on… last year, we were out of doors (with some ranges, including my facility) by mid-March.

Ryan Winther Just Increased His Odds

???????????So, Ryan Winther Emailed Me…

The funny thing is that he is (in just my opinion, and I don’t want to jinx the guy) a huge favorite anyways going into October’s Remax Long Drive Championship.

He’s setting club, ball and carry distance records almost daily, for crying out loud, and he likely really only has to stay healthy and remember where the competition is being held to take another title.
