The Minimalist Golf Swing System, 2015

Happy New Year to all visitors to this blog, and to all users of the Minimalist Golf Swing System.

Over 3 years spend completing a Masters in Sports Science helped to solidify concepts of how the body is designed and thus how best to harness its natural capabilities.

Now, a single term in a PhD in Biomechanics has only served to validate previously developed patterns for the MGSS.

The movements taught over the past 3-4 years have been correct, only I never quite knew how to get the positions right for any and every individual.

Three weeks spent working with my oldest student and dear friend (a leading pulmonary physician of India), have helped to consolidate all the tiny missing links, because there is nothing as useful as feedback from someone who has internalized a system and understands the repercussions of making correct as well as wrong moves.

So, ofcourse any regular visitor to this blog knows that the MGSS requires

a) A pre-swing rotation of the entire spine (including the big mass of the pelvis)                       b) The arms to be the only moving parts from address to the ‘top’                                               c) The angles of the trunk and head to be maintained from address to impact

Here’s the latest information for 2015:

1. If the body forward-bending posture and front-to-back weight distribution are ideal, the pre-swing ‘turn’ is very easy

2. If the pre-swing head position is correct, the body maintains its required angles during the swing

3. If both the pre-swing turn and the head positions are correct, the arms movement is effortlessly fluid and on the correct ‘plane’, and the right (trail) side – ear, shoulder, elbow, wrist and waist – is always lower than its corresponding part of the left (lead) side.

IF you are a serious student of golf and wish to use the MGSS to improve either your full-swing or short-game, the ONLY way to do so is with in-person lessons.

There are no other teachers of this system and no availability of lessons on-line.

See some pictures below and decide whether they’re MGSS or not:

    I would say the second and last photos are minimalist. I agree face to face lessons would be good.
    Time and distance prevent that however. I have had great results with MGS. Thank you for your work.
    I enjoy your blog info, and your presentation.

    Kiran Kanwar is the most knowledgeable person on the planet about the golf swing. Though meek in stature and unknown to the golfing world, she has cracked the code to consistency, power and longevity. I am a 52 year old aspiring professional. I have searched in vain for over 10 years now. It was not until I found Kiran through a mutual friend that the scales of darkness were lifted from my eyes and I WON my first pro event in October. She is right, she is the only authority on MGSS and you would do your golf a favor to go see her. I am going in the new year. For those who think they lose power doing this, my club head speed is over 120 mph and I am reaching more par 5’s in two than I ever have.

    Happy New Year Kiran!
    See you soon!

    Rocky

    In the above pics., the top one is OK but does not have ideal upper-arm and front-to-back weight distribution to make an easy rotation.

    In the second one, OK for some but not for all, there is not enough rotation and the head position could be better.

    In the third, the right wrist, elbow, shoulder become higher than the left very early in the backswing and stay that way to the top, requiring very good strength and speed to get the body into shoulder-external-rotation during the downswing so the club has a chance of arriving at the ball ‘from the inside’. The fourth pic has all right upper-body parts lower than their corresponding parts in the lower-body.
