I Said The “One Major Move” Got Simpler – Mike Dunaway Shows It

I said a while back that the “One Major Move” was even simpler than I had originally thought it was when I devised it as the back swing pivot mechanical action.

I am not even there yet in simplifying my own move, because the nature of making swing changes is such that, even when you “feel” you’re making that move here or there in the swing, most likely you’re closer to your old action than the new, when you check the video.

Molinari Wins The Open With A Classic Swing – “One Major Move”

Out of the scenarios I pointed out yesterday during the final round of the Open Championship, I completely overlooked one possibility, because he was playing such a quiet and overshadowed-by-his-playing-partner-Tiger-Woods round of golf.

Ben Hogan And The Classic Swing Pivot

I’ve been watching the action in the final round of the Open Championship, and it seems that, while he’s hit a couple of shaky shots to end his front 9, Tiger Woods incredibly seems on course to bagging his 15th major tropy.

Here’s How To Use The SwingRite At The Range (Video)

I don’t always take the SwingRite out of the bag during my range sessions, but when I was investigating the John Daly/Mike Dunaway leverage aspect yesterday, I made sure to take it with me because of the “feel” I had swinging it over the weekend.

More “Dunaway…” More Leverage & Power

I took some cuts today after having worked on the “feel” of that top position where I could get more body leverage, akin to the Mike Dunaway/John Daly type of move.

I’d have to say that, even on the first day, I definitely improved my leverage.  I am almost never in the 170s mph ball speed when I am working on a swing move, but today, I hit up to 178 mph ball speed.

Daly/Dunaway Leverage Is Simply The Ultimate MCS “Drop”

I’ve said before that my modeling of the golf swing, and especially the theory of the MCS Golf Swing model as it stands, was far ahead of my personal execution of the swing.

What I’ve been looking with regards to Mike Dunaway’s and John Daly’s transition move on the down swing is just another example of this.

Leveraging With The Torso – John Daly & Mike Dunaway

As you all know, I love looking at mechanics, and when I see something interesting, I see if I can break it down and duplicate it myself.

I’ve been working on something that has to do with leveraging, and that’s using the torso to create the leverage to produce speed rather than trying to jump out of my shoes with a twisting or turning motion combined with swinging with the arms.

When You Focus On The Pivot, Not The Club Head…

Good things will happen.  And this goes for anyone who is struggling with your back swing pivot, because you’re likely focusing on the club rather than the hands in the back swing.

If you use your hips and legs to perform your pivot and focus on the hands – remember the “One Major Move” from the “E = MCS” video – you will really start to figure out the true fundamental mechanics of a simple yet powerful, accurate and repeatable action, which is the essence of a mechanically-correct action.

Even Simpler – The Natural Leverage Action To the “One Major Move”

By golly, I think I’ve got something for everyone regarding the nature of the “One Major Move” in the MCS Golf Swing and why this is the way you want to do it.

I’ve talked about how we are not machines, so we can’t swing like machines, correct?

Next On The Menu – Position Provides Mechanics

I’ve said for a long time that swing “tips” don’t necessarily work because if someone has a swing flaw, it almost invariably comes from an incorrect setup.

Now that I’ve fixed my own “top” position with regards to my leading arm and shaft Continue reading
