The PGA Tour’s Real Power Merchant – Tony Finau

Note: This isn’t a posting attacking or bashing BDC, just a discussion on technique vs strength.

We’ve all been inundated with the exploits of a certain golfer who has been hitting 190+ mph ball speeds on the PGA Tour after going on a weight lifting & eating regime, making some swing changes (for the better) & of course, picking up an er… helpful driver…

Dunaway Model – Latest Developments

You’ve likely noticed, if you’re excited about the MCS Post-Modern/Dunaway Swing Model project that I didn’t post any video work from last week or this week.

That is because I’ve been looking closer at a part of the pivot (the start of the takeaway) in greater detail, as that’s been my particular sticking point to date.

Week 2 – Changes To Setup & Pivot Action – Getting There!

Well, what a difference a couple of changes make!

I made a setup change and worked on transitioning to a better pivot action than what I’d been making last week and the visual difference was striking when I got home to peruse the video evidence.

May 9th Drivers In Slo-Mo

I’m not going to spend a lot of time on these swings as I still have a change to make (hopefully just the one), at which time I’ll definitely want to discuss every aspect in full detail!

For now, here are slo mo gifs of the driver swing from the two angles I shot on Tuesday, down the line and face-on.

Almost Nailed It – One Thing To Change!

I have been looking at more video from yesterday and I was this close to nailing it.

There was one thing I missed on the back swing pivot – I didn’t go there to try to swing in pieces, I went there to just swing & see how much of the model I got right over the winter.

First Day Back With The Post-Modern (Dunaway) Swing

The golf facilities are open and it’s back to business with the Post-Modern Golf Swing model based on Mike Dunaway’s swing mechanics!

I hadn’t hit a ball in 7.5 months and I can tell you that the sore muscles are proof besides the visuals that I got the pivot action down more or less.

Mike Dunaway’s Machine-Like Stability

I was looking at the swing arc tracer gif. of Mike Dunaway (produced for me by an old friend & reader JM) and I noticed for the first time something I’ve never seen before on a swing arc.

Although the back swing arc is different from the down swing arc (due to the weight shift in both directions, you will see something about the entire arc if you pay attention: Continue reading

Just About Ready To Tee Off In These Parts!

Good news, WAX Nation citizens who’ve been waiting for the Post-Modern Swing model (aka the Dunaway-model MCS model) – the golf courses and ranges opened up last weekend!

I didn’t venture anywhere near due to the frenzy that ensued – I got a call during the week that the facility where I hit balls was packed full with a lineup at the clubhouse door… no thanks, I’ll wait.

Cameron Champ vs Mike Dunaway – Leverage

I said I would give everyone a chance to just look at the down the line swing action of Mike Dunaway’s superb mechanics, so let’s take a look at the longest driver of the ball on Tour, young Cameron Champ.

Now, there are more differences in their swings than similarities, which is why Dunaway never hurt himself swinging the club while Cameron’s had back issues since his teens.

Mike Dunaway Swings Down The Line (Sybervision)

Here is an excerpt from the Sybervision video made eons ago, featuring Mike Dunaway in the white pants and blue shirt with which you’re by now assuredly well-acquainted.

I want to just leave it here for now without comment, because it’s such a great move of his from the top down.
