Changes Coming – Site Re-Design

I don’t know exactly when it will get underway, however I will be conducting a site re-design over the next few weeks/months as I prepare to restart the blog for the upcoming season.

If you aren’t following the site, you may come here and find a “Coming Soon” notice with nothing else to see. That will simply be my having had to temporarily (for a few hours) work on the site and having had to take it offline to do so.

The 3 Different Swing Models

I have said for awhile that the swing model presented by the Mikes Austin & Dunaway is a Classic Swing Model because of the free hip action as contrasted with the Modern Golf Swing model which uses back-breaking shoulder-turning against a restricted hip turn.

Tiger Woods’ 5th Back Surgery? What I Wrote Less Than 2 Years Ago

I wrote something about Tiger Woods & his fusion back surgery when he returned to the PGA Tour in February of 2018.

Aside from being alarmed (from an analysis point of view) that he was swinging in the 120s mph club speed at the time, I pointed out in the linked posting that he hadn’t done anything to fix the problem causing all of that back damage to begin with – his restricted-hip back swing & violent change of direction.

Merry Christmas & Announcement

Wishing WAX Nation & new visitors a safe & Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Not exactly the year that anyone anticipated or wanted, but it’s nearly over and the future awaits us.

For those of you who’ve been re-reading the old material & inquiring about the blog – it will return to active status in 2021, although I don’t have a hard date set for resumption.

Here’s how things stand at the moment: Continue reading

The PGA Tour’s Real Power Merchant – Tony Finau

Note: This isn’t a posting attacking or bashing BDC, just a discussion on technique vs strength.

We’ve all been inundated with the exploits of a certain golfer who has been hitting 190+ mph ball speeds on the PGA Tour after going on a weight lifting & eating regime, making some swing changes (for the better) & of course, picking up an er… helpful driver…

375 Yard Drives – Who Did It Better, Mike Dunaway Or Bryson DeChambeau?

I think everyone here knows the answer to that, but if you don’t, it isn’t the guy who’s being accused of “breaking golf” at the moment.

I would say it was a guy who was nearing his 50th birthday and who didn’t spend his days working out in the gym and drinking protein shakes, nor did he use a driver designed to keep the ball as long and straight on mis-hits as off the sweet spot.

New MCS Formula Was A Single-Plane Swing Setup

You’ll remember, those of you who were around the blog back in 2013, that my first post-Mike Austin group swing model was what I called “New MCS” and which featured “The Formula” setup.

Well, I never really looked at the swing model as a “single-plane” one but when I did take a look this week out of curiosity with all the “single-plane swing” talk out there, it was actually a nearly-perfect single plane action when it comes to that particular criterion.

Bryson DeChambeau Isn’t Breaking Golf, His Driver Is (Cheat Driver)

Before anyone says I’m accusing BDC or Cobra of cheating, I’m not – the driver is perfectly legal, but I would say that because it’s legal doesn’t mean it’s good for golf, or even a morally acceptable club to make.

Bryson certainly has increased his weight, strength and swing speed, but the kicker here is the driver he’s using, because he wouldn’t be doing what he’s currently doing with any other driver on the market.

Dunaway Model – Latest Developments

You’ve likely noticed, if you’re excited about the MCS Post-Modern/Dunaway Swing Model project that I didn’t post any video work from last week or this week.

That is because I’ve been looking closer at a part of the pivot (the start of the takeaway) in greater detail, as that’s been my particular sticking point to date.
