I’m Only Interested In One Model – Optimal

dunaway impactThis is all personal opinion, so feel free to disregard this posting as idle musing if you wish.

I have very little interest in a model just because of a name attached to it.  

All I care about it is, mechanical-correctness & how effective it is in producing leverage, speed & thus power.

Here’s a Shocker – Mike Dunaway Gained Fame With A Classic Swing & Floating Pivot

mike dunaway address-topThe thing I like to do is to conduct research rather than listen to fable, fairy tales and stories about legends, if legends exist.

I did it with Ben Hogan back in 2014, when I noticed something about Hogan that everyone in the golf industry said was happening that definitely wasn’t.

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.

1st Day At The Range In 9.5 Months! MCS Swing Classic Swing

dj topToday was my first day back at the range since September 1st of last year, making it 9.5 months since I hit a golf ball!

Fortunately, when you have a mechanically-correct swing model (the optimal one is the best to strive for of course), it shouldn’t take you a long time to find the groove again if you’ve been on a short, middling or long break.

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:

Do You Want To Play Golf As A GAME Or As A SPORT?

mike trout top golfYou may think it’s an odd question, but it’s a question for the serious, want to learn a proper swing person to consider.

The reason I ask is because you can play golf with ANY type of golf swing, good, bad, horrific, and you can play it very well if you’re prepared to practice endlessly to develop a repeating move with all of the flaws contained in an “anything goes” swing.

Ageless Classic Golf Swinger Phil Mickelson Wins A Major At 50

phil at topIf you’re looking for longevity & a career that isn’t constantly derailed or even ended prematurely by injury, do yourself a favor if you’re swinging in the Modern Golf Swing style – take Phil Mickelson’s advice & switch to a Classic Model.

Phil yesterday only became the oldest male golfer to win a Major, taking the 2021 PGA Championship, and it’s not a surprise that he did it with a Classic Golf Swing action.

The “Pressure Plate” Action Powers The Classic Swing

dj finish rev diagI don’t know if I ever shared these swings from June 19th, 2019, but the reverse diagonal view of the driver swing using the MCS Classic Golf Swing model shows very vividly the “Pressure Plate” concept of the pivot actions.

You don’t need muscle & gym training to swing a golf club with speed, this you know from me, who hasn’t seen the inside of a gym since ’02 (and it shows, I know).

8 Iron & 5 Iron Swings From October 2019 (Video)

dj 5i impI have some irons on video from the same day in October of 2019, which was the last day I shot video on the MCS Classic Golf Swing model before switching to working on the MCS Post-Modern model in the off-season.

Again, not over the moon with these after 18 months to work on my action for both models, but as good as I was swinging at the time.

My MCS Golf Swing – Not. Even. Close. (And Video)

dj setup dtl driverI am putting up some swings I’ve never shared, from my last day hitting balls in October 2019 when my MCS Classic Golf Swing action was probably the closest to the optimal model I’ve come.

The swing video is just for interest’s sake, as many of you reading this will have been watching my swing in the “E = MCS” video & the other two in the series. Continue reading
