Why The Tighter Pivot Increases Power

I’ve been going over the mechanics, not content to merely say, “based on what I’ve been researching, the tighter pivot gives you increased power.”

It’s nice to know, but the reasons for this would be helpful to those struggling with issues that they might not think has to do with a pivot that’s less than the tightest they can make it.

It Took A Year To Transform “Feel” To “Real” On The Tight Pivot

I could consider the 2018 season to have been a complete waste of time if I went by my posting from December of last year where I said I’d found my “leverage niche.”¬†using the SwingRite training tool in my off-time.

“Pushing The Down Swing” Is The Secret To The Tighter Pivot

OK, WAX Nation – time to end the impression that there is anything mysterious about what I’ve been discussing this week.

The truth of it is that everything I’ve been looking at and commenting on, is already in the MCS model – I was just getting the “aha”¬†this past week of exactly why the shorter back swing for me is going to be much more powerful than anything I’ve done in the past with my way-past-parallel position at the top.

The Leading Side “Pull” Should Be Built-In – No Need Think About It

I’ve talked about the golf down swing consisting of a “pull” and “push” sequence, but it could be misleading, so I’ll clarify the first part about the “pull” aspect – it is or should be built-in from your position, back swing pivot and top position.

Return of “Push-Pull” Golf Swing Theory

Drv2 July 26 (1)I wrote a post a couple of years ago about how the golf swing consists of a “Push” (the right hand and arm in a right-hander’s swing) and a “Pull” (the leading side leverage).

Now that I’ve explained a little bit of the leading side leverage, I think I’ll be able to expand more on the Push-Pull aspect of my theory on MCS motion.

“Pull & Push” The Golf Swing

Originally Published August 11, 2011 on the DJ Watts Golf Blog.

The title was originally “Push & Pull,” however after receiving an email from a reader on the subject, I agree that the term should be “Pull & Push” based on the sequence of actions in this motion
