One Of My Favourite Swing Clips (2018)

Shot on July 20th, 2018 – I’d give this swing a C+ grade, as I have since fixed the grip (it wasn’t standard neutral here) and of course I’ve done yeoman’s work in optimizing my stance, back pivot and downswing.

I was chagrined at the time that I was only able to shoot video that day at 30 fps – my up-to-400 fps camera had broken and I hadn’t yet sprung for an iPhone to make the need of a camera obsolete going forward.

Musings: The “One Major Move” Still Applies To The New Model

If you are in the optimal address position before initiating the backswing pivot, there’s not much that can go wrong, but one must be wary of not performing the optimal mechanical move, since (if you’re going to this trouble) you want an optimal swing.

George Knudson – A Model of MCS

I’d like to thank M.L. for emailing me the link to the George Knudson swing highlights that I’ve never seen before.

The quality is amazing and I immediately could see so much more clearly just how MCS his swing was.

My Left Hip Pt II – Searching Maximum Leverage

Continuing yesterday’s post, I realized yesterday while doing my swing work that my lower left back and back hip area muscles were sore this week in a way I’ve not experienced before.

I thought it was just muscles realigning and being forced to work differently because I was wearing my therapeutic S.I. Belt which was stabilizing my loose left sacroiliac joint, thereby easing load from and transferring load to muscles that had become accustomed to the joint instability.

My Left Hip Is Killing Me – Why That’s A Good Thing

It’s all about leverage and the change I made to my setup a few days ago.

I’ll start by talking about something that seems to be completely random and having nothing to do with the golf swing modeling – I began to experience pain in my left sacroiliac joint a few years ago.

Why I Didn’t Want To Discuss The New Swing Model – Work In Progress

I wrote last month about not wanting to discuss the swing model I’ve been building since last summer because I didn’t have everything I wanted and needed completed in order to talk specifics.

Turns out, I was correct not to do so.  Something has changed, as recently as yesterday!

Do You Want To Play Golf As A SPORT Or As a GAME?

mike trout top golfYou may think it’s an odd question, but it’s a question for the serious, want to learn a proper swing person to consider.

The reason I ask is because you can play golf with ANY type of golf swing, good, bad, horrific, and you can play it very well if you’re prepared to practice endlessly to develop a repeating move with all of the flaws contained in an “anything goes” swing.

What Does “MCS” in the “MCS Golf Swing” Mean?

The “MCS” in the phrase “MCS Golf Swing” of course means “Mechanically-Correct Swing.”

Speaking from a teaching or instruction point of view, let alone deciding to swing using a certain model, the very first question about a golf swing model should be, “Is it mechanically-sound?”

The answer to that question with any iteration you choose to pick from the Modern Golf Swings out there is simply and concisely, “No,” which means it shouldn’t be used for the purpose of swinging a golf club.
