I dug this old post up from the former blog, as looking at JT’s address and swing motion here are nearly bang-on with the MCS model and address position, especially the current MCS as shown in the MPS “B” or Playing Swing video.
Hello to JM, who sent me this book to look at back then!
If you look at this video compilation of Mike Dunaway’s swings back when he was the dominant driver on the planet (John Daly said MD was longer than him, Greg Norman called him the best driver of the ball that ever lived, etc.), you’ll see what I was talking about in my posting on the knees being “shock absorbers.”
Many of my readers will remember my postings in earlier days on the “trebuchet”effect found in the golf swing.
Now, the “trebuchet” concept I brought up from time to time didn’t really work for some people in the sense that it was more a vague notion explaining the “drop” of the head to the rear and back during the down swing.
It seems there would be another way to explain leading side leverage however – the trebuchet!
