The Mystery Of Dunaway’s Low Leading Heel Pivot – No Mystery!

Those of you who have been around for a while know of my interest in the Dunaway pivot, mainly how he was able to have such a low trailing heel on the back swing.

Hogan’s Greatest Pivot Move – Misunderstood To Mean “Restrict The Hips”

I like to use Ben Hogan’s pivot move to illustrate the perfect pivot action for a reason – he didn’t have the “move off the ball” action with the head, and his head stayed in place on the pivot, leading me to coin the phrase “floating pivot.”

This stable head allowed him to strike the ball with unearthly accuracy (he complained about playing 36 holes per day in some events because he sometimes drove his ball off a tee in the afternoon and ended up in the morning’s tee shot divot).

Cameron Champ vs Brooks Koepka (Technique vs Muscle)

This is not, I will say off the bat, any comparison between skill level or ability – people are always confusing swing technique versus the overall game or ability of a swinger and the two are not the same.

I have been looking at Cameron Champ’s down swing to impact however and have compared it to Brooks Koepka’s and this is the thing:

A Summer Of “Low Impact Heel” Investigation Now Bears Fruit

I mentioned in an earlier posting that I had made several new discoveries in the subtleties within the standard model of the MCS Golf Swing.

I suppose the early days seemed so much more fruitful than the past couple of years have been, due to the diminishing number of things to investigate and clarify.

Miscellaneous Findings Re: The MCS Golf Swing

As you all know, I’ve been looking into various aspects of the MCS Golf Swing model to ensure that there is a blueprint for producing one’s desired “optimal” golf swing within it.

There are a few things I’ve come across that could have been surprising but were, on second thought, absolutely logical, and that’s what you want – to be able to understand/explain the reasoning behind “how” and “why.”

I’m Going To Try Something Next Time Out…

I’ve spent the weekend clarifying for myself exactly why Mike Dunaway had the back pivot shift with a stable down swing head position and found something very interesting in the process.

I’ve been saying that for maximum accuracy and consistency/repeatability, you want to swing with a stable head position throughout the swing, but that you might sacrifice some power/speed doing so. Continue reading

Fascinating Stuff – Head Stability & Impact Trailing Heel Link

I’m getting closer to resolving both issues of the head stability (shift or no shift?) and the trailing heel impact position, and I made a link today between the two, believe it or not.

It’s all due to the way the body is built to move and, from where I can see things at the moment, there is a direct link between having a flat or low trailing heel at impact versus one that is higher and whether or not your head shifts on the back pivot.

Having Looked At The Trailing Heel/Impact – Looking At The Head

I spent a great deal of time this season making sure of the concept of the trailing heel at impact, which I’ve resolved to my satisfaction.

Now, I am looking at one more thing that I have had my eye on for some time.
