Solving The Stance & Pivot Mystery Of MA/MD

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.

Brain Twist – Leverage In Down Swing Comes From Swinging UP…

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.

In addition to the things I’ve discussed already in the past few days, I will be re-introducing certain drills & concepts because they work

Remember Dunaway’s 3 Planes? Guess What… MCS Can Do It Too…

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.

Austin/Dunaway – It’s All In The Pivot!!

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.

Why I’m So Excited About My Austin/Dunaway Project

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 Swing to 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.

Unfinished Business – Mike Austin/Dunaway People

This is already a work in progress, some of you may have already guessed!

Those of you who were around during the early years of my blogging already know that I spent quite some time on the Mike Austin swing model before I began modeling a “playing golf” swing model which culminated in the current version of MCS.

Mike Dunaway’s Address/Impact Shaft Planes

As I get deeper into Mike Dunaway’s entire swing, I would love you all to see something that blows away all of the stuff you hear about the best swingers having the same shaft plane at both address & impact.

This could have huge ramifications for MCS the swing model, which is why I want to point it out, besides showing yet another example of Modern Golf Swing instructions focusing on things that have little relevance to proper mechanics.

Swinging Like Dunaway – Day 3

Well, I have to say that the adjustments I made were exactly what the doctor ordered, having had a look at some swings I made yesterday!

Right now I have a lot of video to edit because I hit some irons as well as the Driver, but here is a little taste of what I got.
