Post MGS “Eureka Moments"
on: June 3, 2012, 19:02

My MGS progress has been slow, mostly due to my old demon: ‘Rt. Hand/Arm takeover,’ thus preventing an automatic MGS F/swg “drop and release.” Thorough review of all of the forum entries herein didn’t give me a workable solution until....... I seemed to remember [a’la Paul Bertholy, I think] the concept of only using the R/hand’s fingers to just continually, lightly ‘Holdwhatever wrist cocking (made in the B/swg) throughout the swing! Yeah, there is NO conscientious effort or movement on the D/swg to release, push or move the club with the R/hand. But not to worry....it absolutely will beautifully release itself at the right (not early) moment!
There it is - my Eureka! Just lightly hold the Rt. Thumb tip to yer Index finger tip [sorta Symple Swing], and make an MGS Swing with No Mechanics - just a ‘Clearkey’ or silent said rhyme! Vunderbar! How’d I do that! Hoboy, I love it! Hey you Gurus, and others, yer Comments please!

Sounds awesome - and illustrates what CD was talking about the other day about written instruction, and what Sacto calls "your MGS". It is difficult even with all the great writing and video and discussion to get everyone to see everything.

But MGS gets you close enough that you can tweak so you can find your authentic swing and then it is as you say "Vunderbar". I like a very light touch with my right hand, and I try to "shake all the tension" out of my right arm from the tips of my fingers all the way to my shoulder.

Regarding Bertholy, it is interesting that Bertholy's system and MGS both view the right shoulder roll as the MAIN problem. Bertholy, because he teaches the classic turn and high hands, has you restrict the right side with active retention, and by "reversing the head". MGS has you set the right shoulder where it needs to be in the downsing and at impact, and then instructs you to keep it there by just maintaining the tilt of the right side as you swing.

Also, another Bertholy imperative "slantiduclar" at top of swing (back slanted away from target at top of swing), is automatically improved with a correct MGS set up and swing. Go figure...

Glad it is working out so well for you Bill!

ThanX for the quick, spot-on comments, Kevin. Have a shoulder with a sore rotator cuff condition right now [result of too aggressive upper body workout at Fitness gym]. When better, I'll fire ya a video clip for analysis. Your new Irish progeny looks great! Bill (willyinnv)
