If you aren’t familiar with Mike Dunaway, he is largely regarded as the father of modern long driving and who passed away last year around this time.
Well, I was right after all – Mike Dunaway’s planted-heel swing was performed along the same lines as how I’ve been describing to those of you at DJ’s Watering Hole, as pertains to the MCS planted-heel “throwing” model.
So, it was definitely different from Austin’s floating heel swing in more than just aesthetics. It was a different pivot and down swing action from Austin’s.
I’ve been performing this same swing of Dunaway’s above after taking a good and close look at the differences between his planted-heel move and mine, but the difference is subtle.
If I stand the way he did, I’ll swing exactly the same way.
But of course I stand a little different than MD did, so our swings, while using the same principles, would look different.
I think that the “Kinesiology of the MCS Golf Swing” video project, a look at Dunaway’s swing would be some autumn fun over at the Watering Hole…
