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?

I Used A Combo Of Austin/Dunaway To Build My MCS “Dunaway/Post-Modern” Model

Part I Of A Series

I said in my last post that I would call the MCS model based on the “shift-and-post” swing model pioneered by Mike Austin the “Dunaway” only because the model I built looks exactly like how Dunaway swung and not Austin.

I May Have My “Post-Modern” Swing Model Completed (Dunaway)

As I said before, this would be an MCS swing model using the principles of the “shift-and-post” mechanical swing model pioneered by Mike Dunaway.

If anyone wants to ask why, since they were both based upon the same principles, it’s not based on Mike Austin’s (who was Dunaway’s mentor we all know), it’s because it looks like Mike Dunaway’s and not Mike Austin’s.

The Post-Modern Golf Swing (Dunaway)

I’ve been doing some soul-searching this winter during my blogging hiatus and I was struggling with to how explain certain things about the Mike Dunaway swing model.

First of all, I was struggling with the very concept of calling it a “Classic Golf Swing” action because… it really isn’t.
