I Brought Up “Big Legs, Little Arms” Before The New Year…

It was back in December, and ironically, it was about how Mike Dunaway produced so much leverage with such a “short” back swing.

The “short” part meant of course that his back swing didn’t produce a club shaft way past parallel or even pointing at the ground the way long drivers have.

I Made A Gif. About The Downswing Last Year…

And it was a year ahead of its time – the gif. was from a sequence in the “MCS – Dropping The Hammer” video.

It was, as you’ll remember, a “Lesson With DJ” type of video working with friend and long-time WAX Golf reader David D., on the proper mechanics of the “Dunaway Downswing.”

The Reason For The Low-Heel Impact

I mentioned in my previous posting how I used to be a very high-trailing-heel impact swinger.

Now, I am a proponent of the low-heel impact, and if you can swing so that it is flat at impact, then you’re really onto something, but that’s also only if you do it properly.

Use Your Kettle Bell “One Exercise” To Be Like Mike Dunaway

Still under the weather with the flu & luckily have this piece I was saving for a rainy day…

I’ll tell you all what got me to the point where I can emulate Mike Dunaway’s near-perfect down swing leverage and low-heel impact position – it’s the Kettle Bell “One Exercise” that I gave you all in “EMCS2 – The Follow Up” video.

What I Found & The Changes In My Swing

OK, I mentioned yesterday in one of my breaks from swinging and writing that I had found something in the setup that should be something everyone will or should have in their own swings when they find their optimal address position.

How Did Mike Dunaway Produce So Much Power With Such A “Short” Back Swing?

You’ll remember that I talked before the holidays about “Big Legs, Little Arms,” and that this is the key to developing the most efficient leverage for a seemingly effortless swing packed with power.

Dunaway’s “Stickman” Gif. With Head Tracer!

I just receive this from JM, who has contributed so much to my blogging in the past years, such as the old vintage swing magazine from Jimmy Thomson and who also sent me his SwingRite years ago, the same one you’ve seen in the “E = MCS” and “EMCS2” videos.

Mike Dunaway & The “Pull-Pull” Leverage Concept

First, I have had great feedback from a good many people regarding the Kettle Bell “One Exercise” from the “EMCS2 – The Follow Up” video, thanks to all.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – the “One Exercise” is a cure-all for just about any problem with the swing between back swing and finish.

Regarding Mike Dunaway’s Shoulders At Impact

Someone from Wax Nation (JS) asked some good questions in a comment on my posting about Mike Dunaway and his superb syncing of his 3 Levers.

I know that many people don’t wade into the comments on sites (which is understandable when you see the level of discourse at times in many sites’ comments sections, but a shame if you’re not following the discussions here at WAX), so I’ll just post on the subject as I think many people might wish to read the clarification.

Watch Dunaway’s “3 Levers” In Action (Plus The Right-Biased Setup)

I have loved the swing gif. of a Mike Dunaway swing for years since I made it from a video clip showing his model in motion, and here’s another reason – you can see clearly the “3 Levers” at work in his down swing.

You can watch the three separately and the reason Dunaway was so effortless in his action is because he synced them flawlessly.
