Just About Ready To Tee Off In These Parts!

Good news, WAX Nation citizens who’ve been waiting for the Post-Modern Swing model (aka the Dunaway-model MCS model) – the golf courses and ranges opened up last weekend!

I didn’t venture anywhere near due to the frenzy that ensued – I got a call during the week that the facility where I hit balls was packed full with a lineup at the clubhouse door… no thanks, I’ll wait.

Dunaway’s “Figure 7” Leverage – Why?

I wrote a post about Mike Dunaway’s “Figure 7” leverage last year and just want to expand slightly on the what and why of how it is so powerful in creating that leverage.

The reason is because the body and legs especially are so much more powerful than the arms.

Cameron Champ vs Mike Dunaway – Leverage

I said I would give everyone a chance to just look at the down the line swing action of Mike Dunaway’s superb mechanics, so let’s take a look at the longest driver of the ball on Tour, young Cameron Champ.

Now, there are more differences in their swings than similarities, which is why Dunaway never hurt himself swinging the club while Cameron’s had back issues since his teens.

Mike Dunaway Swings Down The Line (Sybervision)

Here is an excerpt from the Sybervision video made eons ago, featuring Mike Dunaway in the white pants and blue shirt with which you’re by now assuredly well-acquainted.

I want to just leave it here for now without comment, because it’s such a great move of his from the top down.

Why The Post-Modern (Compound Pivot) Is Not The Modern Golf Swing

There will be some people who, rightly so, wonder why the Compound Pivot (or the shift-and-post) action of Mike Dunaway is not considered to be a version of the Modern Golf Swing.

That confusion would come from the fact that with the Compound Pivot move, you can make a full and free pivot with hip turn without having the lift the leading heel much or at all.

One Of The New Principles From The “MCS – Synchronicity” Video

I had to cancel my video project last winter as you all know, because I ran into personal and work commitments that made it impossible to complete in the time I had set out for it.

One of the principles I had looked into, and the reason I always struggled to get that low trailing heel impact position no matter how well I struck the ball, has to do with the whole concept of synchronicity.

What Besides The Pivot Separates Classic From Post-Modern Models?

In a word, nothing – in theory.

Having worked on the MCS Post-Modern pivot over the winter while the blog was on hiatus, I eventually came to the conclusion that, other than the pivot action, there should be no difference between the principles driving the two swing models.

My Original Theory – Proving It With The Dunaway Model

I had a theory when I first began to really get into swing mechanics, and it’s a simple one from a lifetime of observation/participation in various sports.

It is, simply: the technique for producing maximum power with mechanically-correct motion will also be the technique that provides maximum accuracy & repeatability.

The Three Pivots Of Classic & Post Modern

I hope everyone had a safe and sound weekend in WAX Nation – I was working on my pivot today & thought I’d share my observations on there being actually 3 pivots for the Classic & Post-Modern Golf Swing models.

The first, as we have been looking at it for years, is obviously the pure rotational Classic Golf Swing pivot, where you turn the torso and shoulders using the hip & leg action.

Progression With The “Dunaway” or “Post-Modern” Swing Model

It is surreal sitting down at the keyboard to share my thoughts at this time, as there are far more serious issues at hand worldwide.

However, sometimes doing the normal thing can bring a little respite from the storm and I’ve had my fill today of looking at numbers, graphs and projections.  How about a little swing talk?
