I consider humbray to be a part of the Southwest Wax crew even though he’s a Mid-Westerner, as he spends time down there and since we meet through DKondo, who is an Ohio transplant to Goodyear, AZ and who set up the first Southwest Summits.
I am sitting out in DKondo’s backyard a little after 6am, enjoying the cool desert air as the first pale rays of the sun paint the rooftops.
After a whole day in that same blazing sun at the Wax Golf Southwest Summit 2, it is very refreshing!
The Wax Southwest crew decided this morning to take a little trip just down the road from DKondo’s.
The night before, I had noticed that Trey’s irons were a little too upright, and before heading out, we visited DKondo’s Club Repair. Continue reading
It was a great morning at DKondo’s this morning. Humbray stopped by with son Nick and his friend Brian, and before too long NB and I were on the putting green looking at his pivot.
Brian (BV) stepped up and after a while, we all convened to DK’s hitting station, where we started off hitting 8 irons before moving to the Driver.
Update: While the Summit is planned for the 4th, I will actually be in Arizona from April 1st through the 5th, so if anyone can’t make the Summit but wishes to do something swing-related, send me an email (see my contact page) or make a comment in the sign-up form, and I will see what we can do!
I’m pleased to announce that there will be a 2nd Wax Golf Southwest Summit at the Golf Club of Estrella on April 4th!
I’m going back to Arizona for a little more shooting on the upcoming “MCS – Perfect Pivot“ video, and Trevor Finton from Estrella G.C. graciously agreed to provide the venue for another Summit.
I have four different pivots to show you, and they are all from the MCS golf swing model.
You’re going to see the pivots of yours truly, the swing model developer, and two very good low-handicap players, DKondo & MWehrman, and of the resident pro, Jerry Crowell, PGA.
We would use the swings for slightly varying purposes – Jerry of course is a tournament player and wants to maximize his scoring potential, and can’t afford any big misses or weird shots that come out of nowhere.
Well, I am writing this post with my newly-bought RCA tablet with keyboard attachment.
The laptop I took with me to Arizona last week was little more than an annoying paperweight, as its wifi function was non-functioning on the trip. (**Wax Members can read a little more about the upcoming trip at DJ’s Watering Hole).
It is why I barely posted anything on previous trips. Now, I have my nifty little tablet with which to post, and I should be able to continue posting while traveling in future.
Another email received, at bottom
I have said that it is virtually impossible to make lasting swing changes overnight, but I may have to revisit that belief.
It seems that simply changing one’s setup to the proper one (or closer to the proper setup, if not absolutely correct) can yield immediate results.
Wax Member “Humbray” made another trip from Ohio to the Great White North (which is very green right now, with one of the warmest winters on record), and he brought along his son this time.
We had a great morning session and then lunch before they headed back to Ohio.
