The Great News – You Can “Push/Throw” Or “Pull” Your Swing All You Want

I’m sure that, to many people who are dominant in one side or the other, it has been a little disconcerting to read my thoughts on the optimal swing requiring both sides of the body.

“Using Gravity” vs Modern “Using The Ground”

I have a simple gif. I created a little less than 2 years ago to demonstrate the role of gravity in the down swing, but I can’t find the posting for which this gif. was created, so let’s just do it here and now.

Mike Dunaway’s Leverage

If you think think that being a right-dominant swinger doesn’t require you to use the left or leading side equally, think again.

I took a super slo mo of the Mike Dunaway “stick-man” swing to show his down swing transition and the “drop” that he made into the “3 O’Clock” position.

Let’s Take It From The Top – Gravity + Leverage

I liked the comment left by long-time Wax Nation citizen Goose, who hit the nail on the head with a perfect description of the right arm action with the club.

In fact, it is the perfect description of what’s going on with a perfect (or as close to it as you can get to perfect) down swing action leveraged by the leading side and powered by the trailing arm.

You Must Swing DOWN & Not Forward With The Golf Swing


Wishing everyone a safe and Merry Christmas Day!

I’m not saying you can’t swing forward, but that is not mechanically-optimal and can actually lead to mechanical-correctness issues, which of course means you’re sacrificing performance and raising injury risk.

One of the main issues of trying to swing at the target with the golf swing is that the ball is located near the bottom of the swing arc… so trying to direct force and energy at the target with the club when the ball is nowhere near that point means wasted energy and inefficiency.

When You Get Both Sides Sync’d – The Leverage Is Huge

It boggles my mind that, whatever I’ve managed to do with my golf swing motion in the past 13.5 years since beginning my research, my longest drives and highest club speeds may actually still lie before me.

At 48 going on 49 (next March), that is pretty heady stuff. However, knowing what I’ve been working on and the breakthroughs I’ve made with my own motion to get even closer yet to the MCS Golf Swing model theory – it could be true, even with the decline brought on by Father Time.

Dunaway’s Action WAS Right-Dominant BUT Also Used Leading Side Leverage

Dunaway’s Action WAS Right-Dominant BUT Also Used Leading Side Leverage..

That much should be pretty self-evident if you think about it, but it’s also something that can be overlooked.

Aha – Jiu Jitsu Lesson Just Improved My Leverage Conception In MCS Golf Swing

I may have mentioned a little while back that I’ve just begun to study Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

While I’m just getting into it (I started at the behest of my good friend The Welshman, who is enthused, to say the least), I’m already getting some valuable insights on the nature of leverage and how important the hips & legs are in producing the same.

Watching Other Sports Will Show You Proper MCS Technique

I’ve said since my early days in golf swing research and analysis that modern golf instructors and “gurus” seem to be trying to tell people that the rules of athletic motion are somehow different in golf as opposed to other sports.

That of course is so wrong as to be laughable, but I’m not the one trying to sell it, I’m just saying that athletic motion is athletic motion.

**Sigh** – As With Everything… Right There To Be Seen

Of course, I saw exactly what I figured I would see when I decided to take a look at Mike Austin’s swing down the line with regard to tight or not pivot top position.

Of course… because as with everything that you study intently, the things you need are right there to be seen – you just have to see them.
