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.”
I 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.

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.
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…
Just 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.
I 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.
