I have already pointed out one of the elements of Ben Hogan’s golf swing included in the MCS Golf Swing, of course – it wouldn’t be what it is without the “floating pivot” action (fully mobile hips & legs while the head remains stable, “floating in place”) that is the signature move of the model.
If you get anything out of the MCS Golf Swing theory at all (besides the obvious, that the address position is the foundation of the swing and that the swing is driven by freely pivoting hips & legs), I would hope it is the “3 To 9” concept.
This area is so problematic for most swingers and has become even more so in the Modern Golf Swing era due to the restricted-hip back swing.
Now that I’ve come to the end of my development of the MCS Golf Swing model, I can concentrate on helping everyone hone their own version of this swing model, and today I’d like to address the 3rd Lever action.
Aside from your actual clubs and balls, the two tools I feel are both necessary and adequate for drilling the MCS Golf Swing model both from a technique & speed/power point of view are the Kettle Bell (or various ones, if you’re going to experiment with variable weights) and the SwingRite training aid, and I’ll explain why.
I have been in contact with Kate from the makers of the SwingRite golf training device, trying to see if I could get them out to people at a lower price, and if you haven’t already gotten one, I have good news – you’ll be able to get one and save $25if you enter the code MCS when ordering one that lets them know you heard about it from WAX Golf!
I shot a quick video clip of the right-dominant swing action I’ve been working on for the last while, and I can’t believe how much more compact it is than what I used to consider my best action.
As you’ll see and hear, this adjustment for me has dramatically increased my speed and power as I use the SwingRite stick for feedback, and today was the first day swinging after having determined what I was doing to get to the speed setting I’m on right now.
