Flashback – DJ’s Setup & Swing 2015 vs 2019

dj drv addr 2015 - 2019It’s interesting to go back to see what was going on with the MCS Classic Golf Swing model over the years.

I found a driver swing from June 2015 that shows the changes I’ve made to the model & my own swing from 2015, when I produced the “Kinesiology Of The MCS Golf Swing” video, to the current model laid out in 2017’s “E = MCS.”

How To Avoid “Shortened Careers” Has Nothing To Do With Power & Distance… It’s HOW You Swing

dj driver topThe title is of course a tongue-in-cheek reference to Justin Rose fretting about pro golfers possibly shortening their careers in trying to increase their power & driving distances like Bryson DeChambeau.

Allow me to introduce 49 year old DJ Watts swinging with a likely higher average club speed than Justin Rose (115.37 mph in ’19-’20 season)

Cameron Champ vs Mike Dunaway – Leverage

I said I would give everyone a chance to just look at the down the line swing action of Mike Dunaway’s superb mechanics, so let’s take a look at the longest driver of the ball on Tour, young Cameron Champ.

Now, there are more differences in their swings than similarities, which is why Dunaway never hurt himself swinging the club while Cameron’s had back issues since his teens.

Cameron Champ Could Be Even Longer (Shot Data)

I wrote about Cameron Champ last year after seeing him in the ’17 U.S. Open, and he’s going to be playing on the PGA Tour next season – which means you may see him pretty soon with the wrap-around season!

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.

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.
