Best Long Drive Swings EVER (8 Second Hang Time)

I always like to get a rough indicator of hang time when I launch them especially high and long (and only ever when on line, because who cares low long it flies if it’s going OB?).

So I knew something was going on today when I got home with video.

Should The Long Drive Swing Be Different?

Probably not, except for what I’ve mentioned before with regards to the long drive swing being primarily for speed and power (with adequate accuracy) and the playing swing being for speed, power and a good deal of accuracy.

MCS Long Drive – “Using The Ground” (Video)

You all know that one of my pet peeves on golf swing analysis is the ridiculous “using the ground” excuse the analysts use when they simply have no clue what’s going on and still want to sound knowledgeable about what you’re seeing on your screen.

Simply, launching one or both feet into the air while swinging a golf club does nothing to add speed or power, rather it is an anti-injury move because the swinger is either not using a proper weight shift to the leading foot and/or doesn’t want to damage the leading leg or hip.

Long Drive + “Perfect Pivot” = WOW (Day 2)

OK, you can probably tell I’m having some fun working out the last little details on my long drive swing action, but today was extra fun when I got home to look at the video.

I hit some awesome balls today after struggling through the first half of the bucket, all because I got sloppy with my posture – but when I realized what I was doing and straightened back up to a taller address, it was game, set and match.

Long Drive Swing, Day One – Not Bad!

I have to say that getting out the long drive clubs yesterday, I didn’t expect much, as I haven’t really swung them since the late summer/autumn of 2015.

However, I wanted to see if my new adjusted setup and swing visuals that I’ve developed over the winter with the SwingRite would do for the long drive swing what it did for my regular golf swing.

The Final Step – Part Two! (Long Drive)

OK, so I said the other day that I had found my optimal setup and mechanical action for the golf swing.

Well, that’s correct, but I omitted something – I am going to do the same thing with my long drive swing, because – you guessed it – the long drive swing is slightly different from the regular driver swing that you use for playing golf.

DJ’s 1st Swing Clip For 2017! 3 Angles

I have compiled a video clip here, showing what are finally fit-for-video swings with my updated MCS Golf Swing with the dominant “pull” action reduced and with the proper “push” action.

I was able to break down and reassemble my swing so quickly this spring (using the “3 Pillars,” formerly “Dropping The Hammer” concept) because I’ve always had the components, but I needed to really nail down the adjusted address position to accommodate my spinal deformity, and I think you’ll all agree that I finally got there.

June 18th 2005 – April 19, 2017 – The Day I’ve Been Awaiting

I dug my golf clubs out of the closet on a Saturday back in 2005, after watching some of the 3rd round of the U.S. Open (won that year by Michael Campbell of New Zealand), and when I got home from the range, I remarked to my wife that I was going to “figure this out, once and for all…

Those of you who have been reading my blogging on the golf swing (I first began posting back in the late summer of 2007, about two years after that) will know that I had dumped those clubs into the closet, where they’d gathered dust for years, out of frustration with the golf swing.

Here’s Something Silly…

Let me run something past everyone, because I can’t wrap my brain around the logic of what Modern Golf Swing proponents are always saying.

I’m talking about the restricting of the hip turn in the back swing by keep that leading heel firmly planted on the back swing, all to promote more stability and therefore consistency in the golf swing.

Another Wax Nation Citizen Drops In

All the way from California, another Wax Nation citizen (whom you’ve probably seen before in the comments section)¬†was travelling and in the area, and took the time to stop in for a visit and a little consult on his swing today.

Fortunately, the weather turned out to be awesome, much warmer than forecast, and a brilliantly sunny morning set things off perfectly.
