Here’s another twist I would like to share with you all after the “swing up on the down swing” post from last week – that’s with regards to the down swing and guess what – when it comes to the back pivot, Up is Down!
Thanks to everyone in WAX Nation for your support of the site in reserving your Advance Order (and big early-bird discount) on the upcoming“MCS – Synchronicity” video – the early window will close in the next few days!
Today I want to return to a familiar theme.
I asked a gentleman a while back, during one of our many back-and-forths on email regarding the Austin/Dunaway swing, why he was discussing it with me.
The Advance Order offer will end in the next few days – another “Thank You!” to everyone who has taken advantage of the discount and ordered their copy of the upcoming “MCS – Synchronicity”video in Advance.
Here’s something that will twist many peoples’ brains – you get the most leverage, speed & power in the down swing by swinging UP.
When I posted a while back on Mike Dunaway’s three different planes (address, at the top and impact), I had only just done an analysis of his swing down the line to notice it.
Well, you’ll recall that I said I’ve implemented as much of Austin/Dunaway principles into the MCS Golf Swing model as I could without actually making it the Austin/Dunaway model, and this is another thing you can add.
I was keeping this under my hat because I knew it was close to the end of the season in these parts (I probably won’t be out again, as my facility is scheduled to close Sunday and rain/cold will prevail til then), and I didn’t want to promise anything I couldn’t deliver.
However, the past few weeks have been more than just my fun with the Austin/Dunaway project – you all know I’ve been looking deep into Mike Dunaway’sleveraging and pivot action to see how to MCS‘ize it.
I worked all weekend on the proper “shift & tilt” pivot action and nailed it with the SwingRite.
I had it on a setting so difficult that I couldn’t come close to clicking it unless I got into the right hip properly to create the “post” that is required to tilt and then reverse tilt into the down swing.
This is something I left nearly seven long years ago, for various reasons, the first of which was I didn’t think this kind of swing would work for anything besides long driving.
It took me a couple of years in the wilderness with the swing models until I figured out Ben Hogan’s pivot action and then adapted the MCS Golf Swingto that in late 2014, and I’ve spent five years refining that model based on his pivot until I could find nothing more to improve it.
