My Swing (mvmac)


Recommended Posts

hold your gun.

You're pro? You cant even turn 90 degrees and finish off properly. You're like doing punch shots on every swing how in the world. You do realize that right?

What have golf become nowadays. really.

You guys are learning from him?

Horrible/bad back posture.

Your up swing is so flat , then you're coming over the top to hit it straight.

Hips are still squared upon impact decreasing your lag and impact.

Flipping your wrist so fast upon impact using your wrist to control the club. (unable to achieve flat wrist)

swing plane totally off...

If you're pro I'll better join the web.com tour and get my pro card.. (haha kidding)

Bit harsh bomberman........But I think there's a big lesson here to be learnt about the "prettyness" of a swing and the efficiency of it.

No deleting, just post your own swing. Put up or shut up.

I am not sure he can.  If he is really from Iceland, how much golf can he play?

That is rich, I seem to recall some of your posts that were directed at Mike and/or Erik which were pretty similar. Glad to see you've mellowed somewhat.

I was thinking about that this morning when I first saw Bomberman's latest pearl of wisdom, maybe you should be required to have a posted swing video in order to be able to comment in "my swing" threads. Might minimize the drive by bullsh!t that people throw up.

I have no problem with high-handicappers commenting on any thread they want, but you shouldn't be allowed to mock the swing of someone who would be giving you 20 shots (not that Mike can't take it, just, y'know, as a general principle).

My comment had nothing to do with handicap. Just thinking that if you don't have the guts to post your own swing then you shouldn't have the ability to comment on someone else's swing. Kind of a "put up or shut up" scenario.

I said "put up or shut up earlier," so we agree. :-)

Many of the swing videos of Mvmac found within this thread are practice sessions that he's filmed.  In particular, where he is exaggerating the feels of a 'pitched elbow' or 'deeper/higher right hip', etc.  The reason to do practice sessions with abbreviated swings, or with exaggerated feels is to make geo changes within the pattern.  Or as Foley would say, he's laying down more myelin.

Basically it is 'Practicing with a Purpose', where the exaggerated feel or abbreviated swings become finely ingrained within the full swing overtime.  And becomes a natural pattern, even when placed under pressure of tournament play.

So back to my point... Just because mvmac isn't taking a full turn - or finishing into some 'textbook' finish in every single swing video found within this thread... Doesn't mean he has a bad swing. In fact, I know he has a good swing, better than mine as I've seen it in person.  But again, he isn't trying to make a post of his swing as - here is my full swing.

If they had upvotes on here I'd give you one Ernest.

Thanks, not sure what an upvote is, there is a little "thumbs up" icon at the bottom of the posts if that's what you mean? Anyways, I wasn't suggesting it to be exclusionary, just think there would be a lot less "big mouth negativity" if people had to pony up first.

Gotta back logman here. I recall a lot of nonsense from him and a lot of disagreement, but certainly no discouraging or insulting posts directed at other people's swings. :)

I know you wouldn't do that, you can be pretty god damn contrary but you aren't mean, that is not what I meant.

Not bashing peoples swings, at the the end of the day I believe our dear Logman has a good heart and isn't mean spirited, but I do seem to recall some belittling of the teaching abilities of Mike and Erik which is what I was refering to. It is possible I'm mis-remembering or confusing Logman with another poster (in which case I apologize) but I'm pretty sure I recall correctly.

FWIW y'all know I'm one of Logman's staunchest defenders!

    • if a 20 index senior were to get fitted for irons, previous using10 YO cavity back, what is a realistic expectation new tech would bring? e.g.  +7 yds distance from +2 mph clubhead speed less spin,  4 yd narrower dispersion assuming spending $1000 is affordable.... thanks in advance, mike

    • While I really believe a golf forum isn't going to change anyone's opinion about the vaccine, let me add a twist. There are several colleges that are requiring students to be vaccinated before returning to school.   Are they wrong?   If so, why do all elementary schools require vaccines for students before they can attend?   The coronavirus isn't something new where a vaccine was whipped up in a few weeks.   We all took polio vaccines to help eradicate the disease.   Mump and measles are heavily reduced until some people this past year decided not to get vaccinated and there were consequences.   I understand the idea of being concerned about something new here, but it's not new.   Science and the many, many thousands of hours of work of very highly skilled scientists have assured us of its effectiveness.
