The Mystery Of Dunaway’s Low Leading Heel Pivot – No Mystery!

Those of you who have been around for a while know of my interest in the Dunaway pivot, mainly how he was able to have such a low trailing heel on the back swing.

Swinging Like Mike Dunaway Day 2 – Better!

I got some swings in today and was very pleased with the progress.

Changing mechanics so drastically takes a little time to get used to, but today I got a much better setup going and also got more of the “ringing the bell” hip tilt going with the back swing and down swing.

Dunaway’s Swing Was So Different – All Leverage

I’ve been harping about Mike Dunaway’s leveraged swing for some time now and I can say, as I close in on exactly what he was doing and how to replicate it, that I don’t know of any other move in golf like what he did.

I said after my initial attempt to reproduce Dunaway’s action that there were a couple of things I had to adjust.

Putting More Ben Hogan In My MCS Pivot – WOW!!

I wasn’t disgusted with my form swinging the club after 5 weeks off when I spent a couple of days in Chicago two weeks ago and had the opportunity to hit balls at Medinah CC courtesy of my host Cory C, but let’s say I wasn’t happy about it.

I like to use Ben Hogan’s pivot move to illustrate the perfect pivot action for a reason – he didn’t have the “move off the ball” action with the head, and his head stayed in place on the pivot, leading me to coin the phrase “floating pivot.”

This stable head allowed him to strike the ball with unearthly accuracy (he complained about playing 36 holes per day in some events because he sometimes drove his ball off a tee in the afternoon and ended up in the morning’s tee shot divot).

Keys To Power Leveraging – The Spine & Shoulder Tilt Are Key

You’ve seen that despite the Modern Golf Swing’s insane mechanical theory (which is dead wrong, by the way) that you best generate power by restricting the hip turn and torquing the lower back, there are still fundamentals that even the MGS proponents can’t eliminate.

Cameron Champ vs Brooks Koepka (Technique vs Muscle)

This is not, I will say off the bat, any comparison between skill level or ability – people are always confusing swing technique versus the overall game or ability of a swinger and the two are not the same.

I have been looking at Cameron Champ’s down swing to impact however and have compared it to Brooks Koepka’s and this is the thing:
