Now, there’s no reason that a kid hitting it 350 yards carry distance would need any more distance, but find me one person, even among the longest hitters, who didn’t want more distance with their swings.
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.
I have said – and will be showing in the upcoming “MCS – The Kinetic Chain” video – how you can create excellent positiveAttack 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.
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!
I was looking for a good swing clip of Tony Finau today for whatever reason – I wasn’t going to profile his swing or anything, although he’s a prodigiously long hitter.
I was just looking to see what he pivot action looks like, and it’s not bad, but the one thing I learned about anything today while looking at Finau’s “Golf Digest” analysis was – and this is embarrassing to have to point out, I assure you – the swing gurus to the PGA Tour players don’t understand the release action of a proper golf swing…
