I said in my last post that I would call the MCS model based on the “shift-and-post” swing model pioneered by Mike Austin the “Dunaway” only because the model I built looks exactly like how Dunaway swung and not Austin.
As I said before, this would be an MCS swing model using the principles of the “shift-and-post” mechanical swing model pioneered by Mike Dunaway.
If anyone wants to ask why, since they were both based upon the same principles, it’s not based on Mike Austin’s(who was Dunaway’s mentor we all know), it’s because it looks like Mike Dunaway’s and not Mike Austin’s.
Not bad for a kid who went from junior college his freshman year to McNeese State University on a transfer, to winning an event in his junior year, to winning 2 events his senior year along with the Southland Conference Player Of The Year before turning pro last summer.
This is a post I wrote on October 29th, 2009, which was just before I began my Mike Austin years, so it’s shortly before many of you even knew about the Smash Golf Blog.
I am feeling nostalgic and I went back to my Smash Golf postings (the blog still exists, just now on a privacy setting) to see what I could re-live from 10 years ago (when I was only at the tender age of 39!!!), and found this gem.
