Mike Dunaway Used The KMCS “Switching Sides” Method

This is “deja-vu all over again,” as Yogi Berra would have said.

Those of you who have the “Kinesiology Of The MCS Golf Swing” video (Part 1 of the MCS Trilogy Series) will probably not be that surprised to know that, in the Peace River swing video, Mike Dunaway used a mechanically-correct version of the planted-heel swing I demonstrated in “Kinesiology.”

The Trilogy Series Has Concluded – Now It’s Long Drive Time

jn-djI have been going back and forth about what I was doing to do now that my swing research has concluded.

I have thought it was over a couple of times before, but there was always a nagging thought that I might have missed something – well, I can state with confidence that, having cracked the “Dunaway Down Swing,” there is nothing left to look at.

On Kinesiology (Why Things Work And Don’t Work)

tiger-woods-acl-reconstructive-surgeryOriginally posted September 17, 2015 – Re-Posted as this goes great with yesterday’s posting

The main problem people have with golf swings is that they don’t realize that kinesiology is more than just the study of human motion.

If you look at the actual definition of kinesiology, say from the wikipedia version of the word, you’ll see that kinesiology actually involves much more than the basic (mechanical) motion.

The MCS Swing Bottom – Consistency, Consistency…

swing bottoms golfOriginally Posted August 4, 2015 – Re-posted because you need this swing bottom to “drop the hammer.”

The name of the game with the golf swing is consistency.  It doesn’t matter how far you can hit a ball, nor even how accurately you can hit a ball, if you can’t do it consistency.

In golf, you score when you put the ball where you want it for the next shot, more or less – and when you don’t put that ball where you want it, bad things are likely to happen – or at least things will happen that aren’t optimal.

The first guy on TV that I ever saw talking about the Modern Swing in a negative way compared to the classic golf swing was Brandel Chamblee.

Move over Brandel, here comes Mike Boyle online!

PGA Tour Gurus Don’t Understand Release! (Tony Finau)

finau release*An Archived Posting From December 06, 2015

I was looking for a good swing clip of Tony Finau today for whatever reason – I wasn’t going to profile his swing or anything, although he’s a prodigiously long hitter.

I was just looking to see what he pivot action looks like, and it’s not bad, but the one thing I learned about anything today while looking at Finau’s “Golf Digest” analysis was – and this is embarrassing to have to point out, I assure you – the swing gurus to the PGA Tour players don’t understand the release action of a proper golf swing…

Why My Pivot Is Nearly Perfect

backswingI will never have a truly perfect pivot, of course, because I am not a machine, for one, and I have a spinal deformity, for a second reason.

However, as I’ve said in the “Kinesiology of the MCS Golf Swing” and “MCS – Perfect Pivot” videos, the closer you can get to the theoretical model of the MCS Golf Swing model, the better you’ll swing.

Extended Release Pt III (DTL)

7i post impJust a quick posting with the down the line swings from Saturday, in gif. form.

The thing about having the extended release is that you’re not turning – I’ve said before, there is “no turn in the swing,” only the pivot, whereas if you’re actually trying to time a  “turn” through impact, you’re just going to make things much more difficult than they have to be.

Full Extension Release – Swings From Saturday

impact & releaseI have some video from Saturday, as I mentioned in the posting that day, on the concept of having more extended release action through the ball for more leverage, more power, more speed, more consistency – everything you want in a concept.

Most people, in my experience, have had a good deal of trouble with the concept of the full-extension release.
