This doesn’t mean I’m finished, far from it, but I am now in the final edit stage of the production for the “MCS – The Kinetic Chain” video!
That means I’ve shot all of the video I need, I have the presentation video footage taken care of, and I’ve winnowed all of that down to what will be in the video, and I’m now working on the actual product.
While working on the “MCS – Project 2018” video, I finally seized upon a theme, as most of my videos are usually centered around a theme of sorts, like the pivot (“MCS – Perfect Pivot), or leverage (“MCS – Ultimate Leverage”), or the “One Major Move” from the “E = MCS” video.
The original intent of this video was to provide proof of the efficiency and effectiveness of using the MCS Golf Swingmodel, by explaining with numbers and graphics how and why it is such.
I said a while back that the “One Major Move” was even simpler than I had originally thought it was when I devised it as the back swing pivot mechanical action.
I am not even there yet in simplifying my own move, because the nature of making swing changes is such that, even when you “feel” you’re making that move here or there in the swing, most likely you’re closer to your old action than the new, when you check the video.
As my long time readers know, I have always had issues with my down swing plane and club path through impact.
There were two reasons, the first of which I’ll address first here – that I have a spinal deformity that twists my shoulders open when standing straight, leading to a steep down swing plane (what people call “over the top”) in the past, as well as a downward or negativeAttack Angle into the ball with the Driver.
I had said in the weeks previously, while working on changing my back swing pivot to shorten it and produce a shallower plane on the down swing, that I was hitting baby draw with it due to the changes I was making.
I showed some data from May where I had gone to the TXG Golffacility in Toronto to show how the MCS Golf Swing model allowed me to drive the ball well upwards of 300 yard and to also create a positive Attack Angle to maximize drive distance.
I wanted to get some good-quality slow motion swings for the upcoming video “MCS – Project 2018,” the better to illustrate certain points about the mechanics, of course, but also to get some good position pics.
If you are an old holdover WAXer from the days of Mike Austin swing modeling, you will be shocked perhaps to learn that M.A. was neither correct nor incorrect about his “reverse” or pronating right hand action on the back swing.
