The Cross-Dominant Double-Cross Strikes Again

Here’s a deep dive into the nitty-gritty of swing modeling, for those so inclined.

I would say that it was a mistake to have been working on two different swing models last season and prior, but there is a silver lining to that darkness – I may have solved two problems in half the time it might have otherwise taken.

The Simplest Swing Action (But Likely Harder To Explain)

If you’re wondering why I’ve been working so long and seemingly without progress on my new swing model, it’s because it’s the simplest action one can make with a mechanically-correct swing model that maximizes both power and accuracy combined.

Why I Swing Hard & Miss Widely

For one, I swing with mechanical-correctness even when my form is off, so I don’t worry about injuries when working on my swing or playing golf.

The second reason is my philosophy – no matter how hard one swings, if one is swinging properly, big misses are eliminated or greatly reduced in likelihood, so I want to see where my misses go, and by how much.

Swinging Right-Handed Means Exactly That

One would think that this is a straight-forward statement and even simpler concept, but I’ve watched enough so-called right-handed swingers to see that almost no one actually does it.

This is why Mike Dunaway’s swing looked so markedly different from any other swing you see, even his mentor’s – he was swinging virtually 100% with his right arm and hand.

This Would Be The Greatest Swing Model

I hypothesized a few years ago about my vision of the Classic Golf Swing having the regular pivot action on the back swing, but with a Mike Dunaway-esqe leverage and impact position, which never came to fruition.

After several attempts at it, and a whole summer spent on it, I nearly gave up on it – actually, I did give up on it until this morning when, while going back and forth between the Classic and the Post-Modern, I began to make some very fast Classic pivot swings and then noticed something.

The Modern Golf Swing In Tweets

First off, this is not a personal attack on anyone featured below, whether it be golfer, analyst or instructor. My beef is with the entire industry.

I’ve been seeing a lot of Tweets regarding young Will Zalatoris after his maiden PGA Tour win.

I also got a look at his swing today, because as you all know, I almost never watch Tour golf on the television anymore due to heartburn and mental health hazards.

MCS Classic Golf Swing – Weight “Transfer” & The C7 Rotation Point

Words definitely matter when you’re speaking or writing about the swing, because if the diagram, picture or video were sufficient, we’d simply watch and implement, wouldn’t you agree?

In that regard, let’s just get rid of the word “shift” when it comes to the Classic Golf Swing, particularly the MCS version of it, because there is no “shift” in the optimal swing.

Here’s One Reason People Use Too Much Leading Arm (Throw The Club)

One of the reasons I was able to drive a golf ball 350 yards and up back in my late 30s and early 40s even while swinging with too much leading arm (left-dominant) was because I knew where impact was.

I may have been guilty of trying to pull the club through impact with the leading arm while still trying to hit the ball with my right hand – when I didn’t do it perfectly, I would smash the ball 350 yards, but when I did do it perfectly, I snap-hooked the ball off the planet or sliced it over 2 fairways.

I Think Double-Crossed Swinging Is A Huge Factor Even For Right-Handers

I’m referring of course to the right-handed golf swing, so lefties swinging lefty would be the same thing here if you are left-handed and swing left.

But in the land of hockey, there are so many more right-handed Canadians who play golf left-handed than the average nation.
