Re-Building The Golf Swing – Ended Up With Mike Dunaway

In the past, I’ve always looked at golf swing models that already existed, like Mike Austin’s swing model or the Classic Golf Swings of various legends, and tried to determine first, if they were viable models and second, if they were “optimal,” lastly if there was something to improve upon them.

I did exactly that with the Classic Golf Swing, taking the most successful Classic swingers & building a model based on the commonalities (stance, pivot action, etc) of these players.

Shift & Post Golf Swing (Not Perfect, But Not Bad)

4 impI wrote earlier about the lack of hip shift in some of Mike Dunaway’s swings we’ve seen in his Mike Austin collaborations, so I decided to see how much if any actual hip shift I got myself performing the shift-and-post move.

I’ll say this – it is very difficult to make immediate swing changes as most of you who’ve really dedicated yourselves to improving your swing, but I was able to make a passable impression of a pivot where my head had to shift.

2nd Day Back – More To My Liking! (Classic Swing Model)

dj drv imp dtlI made an adjustment in my setup & back swing pivot action, and the result on my 2nd day back was more to my liking – especially with the irons when I hit a bunch of them!

It’s one of my kids’ birthdays today so I’m a little pressed for time, had enough to get a DTL swing up with some Gifs below.

Launch Angle Looking Good (Approx. 13 Deg.)

launch angle 13 degThere’s a Mike Tyson quote that I love, regarding plans of action: “Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth.”

Golfers who struggle with their swing on the 1st tee or under a pressure situation will know that familiar feeling, re-phrased: “Everyone has a swing until the pressure is on.”

Byron Nelson’s Nearly Flawless Swing Action

bn topAs per P.A.’s request:

It may be a bit harsh describing any part of Lord Byron’s swing as a “flaw,” but there is no other word to describe a part of his setup except perhaps “change this to that, and it’s virtually perfect.”

So with apologies to one of my favorite swings of all time, let’s have a look at the swing that is historic for the following reasons:

The Dunaway “Post-Modern” Model – Putting The Pieces Together

dunaway planes dtlThe work has continued on the MCS Post-Modern Golf Swing model during this never-ending local lockdown, which I’m now hearing will be extended from its previously extended date of May 21st to the beginning of June.

It’s possible I won’t be able to actually test-drive this model until July if things continue, but I’m making the best of the down time with the work on this model.

Flashback – DJ’s Setup & Swing 2015 vs 2019

dj drv addr 2015 - 2019It’s interesting to go back to see what was going on with the MCS Classic Golf Swing model over the years.

I found a driver swing from June 2015 that shows the changes I’ve made to the model & my own swing from 2015, when I produced the “Kinesiology Of The MCS Golf Swing” video, to the current model laid out in 2017’s “E = MCS.”

Dunaway’s Post-Modern Model Is All About Setup

dunaway impactOf course, it’s never quite as simple as any title implies, but I’ve spent 18 months working quietly on the Dunaway model.

I can verify that while I came close to it during this time, I’ve only nailed (in my mind) the swing action from A-Z after I really got the setup measured.

Recapping MCS Pt 2 – Optimal Doesn’t Mean Perfect

jack-nicklaus-fishingCarrying on the thread from Part 1 of the Recapping MCS, I was discussing Jack Nicklaus & one of the main reasons for his greatness.

Of course, he was a capable athlete, having also played football and basketball, and he was a keen competitor & had a very high golf IQ (knack for the game, for want of better wording).

Recapping The MCS Classic Golf Swing – From The Ground Pt 1

tight elbow on pivotThanks to all new readers (and old) who’ve purchased your downloads of the MCS Classic Golf Swing video, your support of the blog is much appreciated!

I thought that since the lockdown in our area has shut down the local courses & driving ranges (don’t ask me how one can contract Covid-19 standing on a range ten or more paces from the nearest person in an outdoor setting, because neither I nor anyone else has a clue), I would go over the MCS model from the ground up with some refresher points & logic that either aren’t actually part of video or, if they are, bear repeating.
