Recapping The MCS Classic Golf Swing – From The Ground Pt 1

tight elbow on pivotThanks to all new readers (and old) who’ve purchased your downloads of the MCS Classic Golf Swing video, your support of the blog is much appreciated!

I thought that since the lockdown in our area has shut down the local courses & driving ranges (don’t ask me how one can contract Covid-19 standing on a range ten or more paces from the nearest person in an outdoor setting, because neither I nor anyone else has a clue), I would go over the MCS model from the ground up with some refresher points & logic that either aren’t actually part of video or, if they are, bear repeating.

dj 4i top dtlThanks to everyone who has purchased a video download, your support of the site is much appreciated!

I was seeing some stuff that I really liked, and it it seems that Rory has made some swing changes for the better.

And I mean, if this is not just an anomaly, that this would be great for Rory and for professional golf – the youngsters today are more likely to want to emulate Rory than Tiger Woods, and if Rory is going back to more mechanically-sound swinging, I would be personally delighted for 1. His back and future and 2. The generations that will follow him.

Rigid Shoulders – Pivot Killer

It may seem counter intuitive but the more relaxed you are, the better you will swing.  Stiffness, especially in the upper back and shoulders, is  a pivot killer.

One of the more common things I see in the golf address stance is the stiffness.

Remember – We Are Not Machines

There are things about us that make swinging different from a machine swinging.  We are not made of metal or wood, with rigid and inflexible parts that move with cables or hydraulics or magnetic fields.
