There’s nothing really new about the Driver video I shot this morning other than I finally had adequate light conditions (actual sunshine!) and lighter-colored clothing to show more detail on the frontal video.
I shot some video with Mike Austin’s Flammer at the range today. Apologies for the format, it was so windy that much of what I was saying on the initial take was drowned out by noise.
I’ve said before that there were small differences between the MCS swing and Mike Austin’s swing, probably due to natural differences in physique and whatnot.
Along with the first two components of the Fundamentals Trifecta discussed in the Smash Golf MCS, the third components, the Address Position or Stance, is just as important and usually the most overlooked or neglected facet.
The MCS 1.0‘s Fundamentals Trifecta consisted of three components – the Grip, Ball Placement and Address Position or Stance. Below, you see the importance of correct Ball Placement in the swing.
Now that I have a camera with better slow motion resolution, I can show the importance of one of the three components in the MCS’s Fundamentals Trifecta – the Grip or how you hold the club.
As promised, I got some video clips shot today with the Casio EX-FC100 camera. There was a howling gale but it was a headwind and just slightly right-to-left. No problem hitting balls in that wind, so I got some great video.
I said during the winter break that I would take a few weeks to think about my own direction in golf after having spent nearly six years researching the golf swing, during which I looked at and commented on the swings of many past and present prominent golfers.
I’ve been talking about the adjustments I’ve made to my MCS swing mechanics over the winter, and how I’m swinging more efficiently and powerfully than ever before. Funny thing is, if you look at my “then” and “now” impact positions – after the changes I’ve made, the swing still ends up looking the same at impact!
