I was keeping this under my hat because I knew it was close to the end of the season in these parts (I probably won’t be out again, as my facility is scheduled to close Sunday and rain/cold will prevail til then), and I didn’t want to promise anything I couldn’t deliver.
However, the past few weeks have been more than just my fun with the Austin/Dunaway project – you all know I’ve been looking deep into Mike Dunaway’s leveraging and pivot action to see how to MCS‘ize it.
That said, there are things in the Dunaway model that I found translate into the MCS model and I found more than one of the greats of the game after whom the MCS model was styled, who did the things I was looking into with regards to Mike Dunaway.
I am going to continue my Austin/Dunaway project later, for those interested in it, but I’m now, having ended my season, looking at all my video from the summer.
You’ll remember that the last concept I developed for the MCS Golf Swing was the “One Major Move” which involves the right side of the body (for a right-handed swing) and I’ve this summer been researching more intensely the leading side of the body to “twin” or synchronize for people the two sides of the body with the MCS Golf Swing.
Ironically, one of WAX Nation (hey there, Goose) has made a comment or two on the exact concepts at issue with synchronizing – he mentioned Jack Nicklaus, whom I’ll be referencing to show that certain principles in the Dunaway swing are transferable to MCS, as well Slammin’ Sammy Snead.
I’ve been looking at a lot of swings out there this past summer, but the Classic swingers are always the best reference. For example, I saw this Tweet this morning:
… that just makes me shake my head.
People are comparing the two swings and saying “one and the same,” and I don’t even know where to begin to point out the obvious differences (and failings) in the Modern Golf Swing modeled by Tiger Woods compared to Sam Snead’s.
Not to mention, TW has changed his swing about 5 times in his career, so the swing you’re looking at has won exactly 2 regular events and this years Masters, while Sam Snead swung the same way his entire career – and didn’t wreck his back or knees either, while being the longest hitter (or in the top 2 or 3 longest) on the PGA Tour for many, many years.
So, I apologize for saying that there was nothing new to be found in MCS – I like to keep things quiet sometimes, just when I’m finishing working on something, in order not to jump the gun.
As it happens, I have found some things that will enhance the MCS model, some things that are clarifications on the model, and together, some great new stuff for MCS & the WAX Nation.
