Driver Gif.s – Yesterday Was The Transition Phase

I don’t know if anyone thinks these swings look different from my usual action or not, but there is a whole world of difference in the mechanics of what I was doing yesterday versus before.

I’ll be taking a couple of days to go over what I was doing versus what I should be doing (still too much “pull & turn” which was how I used to swing when left-dominant), but knowing the difference is the key.

There’s Leverage And Then There’s Leverage

I’ve had some exciting breakthroughs in the 10 sessions swinging this season, but I don’t think I’m at the end of the line yet when it comes to leverage.

Basically, I’ve been reducing my left-side impulses, bit by gradual bit, to where I have crossed from swinging left-armed to more right-dominant, but I’m still seeing too much left side influence in both the back pivot and down swing.

Tom Weiskopf’s Awesome MCS Type Swing

If you’ve never looked closely at the great recently departed Tom Weiskopf’s golf swing, or haven’t in a while, you’ll be very pleased to look at it.

In fact, other than one nit-pick, I would be hard-pressed to find anything in this man’s swing action or setup.

This Driver Swing Was Pretty Good…

There are some nice things I see in one particular face-on driver swing I shot on Tuesday, with regards to setup and pivot action.

Of course, because I got so many things right, it was a blast, and I would have thought it was close to perfect from the face-on angle of it.

It’s Been A While – Irons Face-On & DTL (9i,7i &5i)

The reason you have seen mostly driver swing videos on the blog for some time is because of my work finishing the modeling and my own swing action regarding the MCS Classic Golf Swing model.

The driver is (for most) the most difficult club to control, so for me, while working on either the model or my own swing, I know where I am by how I’m hitting the driver.

Even When Not Perfect – You Can Be Pretty Good (Two 5 Irons @ TXG The Same Distance)

I’ve been looking through my removed posts and found the one I had on my 5 irons at the TXG facility back in 2018, when I was just getting numbers for my clubs.

Now, you all know I’m not happy with how I swung the club back in 2018, because of two things specifically, the left-dominant setup/action and my grip.

Down & Through, That Is The Purpose

Game versus Sport, the eternal balancing act of golf, dictates that even mechanically-iffy swings can be successful given good impact conditions and an overall great short game.

But there is a reason you don’t see anyone anywhere swinging like Moe Norman, the man who could hit the ball practically dead straight – and we’re talking so little side-spin that the first time Moe was ever analyzed on a launch monitor, it was thought to be malfunctioning.

MCS Classic Golf Swing – Weight “Transfer” & The C7 Rotation Point

Words definitely matter when you’re speaking or writing about the swing, because if the diagram, picture or video were sufficient, we’d simply watch and implement, wouldn’t you agree?

In that regard, let’s just get rid of the word “shift” when it comes to the Classic Golf Swing, particularly the MCS version of it, because there is no “shift” in the optimal swing.

I Think Double-Crossed Swinging Is A Huge Factor Even For Right-Handers

I’m referring of course to the right-handed golf swing, so lefties swinging lefty would be the same thing here if you are left-handed and swing left.

But in the land of hockey, there are so many more right-handed Canadians who play golf left-handed than the average nation.
