More Pieces Fall Into Place – The 2 Models

I’ve always said that I would only ever want to swing in one way, which is the optimal way in which to swing – however…

It would seem that there are two models of the golf swing I would consider optimal based upon how one swings or wishes to swing.

The Cross-Dominant Double-Cross Strikes Again

Here’s a deep dive into the nitty-gritty of swing modeling, for those so inclined.

I would say that it was a mistake to have been working on two different swing models last season and prior, but there is a silver lining to that darkness – I may have solved two problems in half the time it might have otherwise taken.

Swinging Right-Handed Means Exactly That

One would think that this is a straight-forward statement and even simpler concept, but I’ve watched enough so-called right-handed swingers to see that almost no one actually does it.

This is why Mike Dunaway’s swing looked so markedly different from any other swing you see, even his mentor’s – he was swinging virtually 100% with his right arm and hand.

This Would Be The Greatest Swing Model

I hypothesized a few years ago about my vision of the Classic Golf Swing having the regular pivot action on the back swing, but with a Mike Dunaway-esqe leverage and impact position, which never came to fruition.

After several attempts at it, and a whole summer spent on it, I nearly gave up on it – actually, I did give up on it until this morning when, while going back and forth between the Classic and the Post-Modern, I began to make some very fast Classic pivot swings and then noticed something.

My Post-Modern May Be More MA Than MD

As I’ve looked deeper into the Post-Modern Golf Swing model on which I’ve been working the last year in addition to making sure my Classic Golf Swing model was optimal, I took a turn this past weekend while continuing the work.

As you all know, I do a lot of tinkering with the models while trying  to determine what is optimal, so I’m constantly changing balance, weight distribution etc., to make sure I’m not overlooking anything.

Light Club Swing Should = Heavy Club Swing

I’ve said that the scourge of Modern Golf Swing instruction and practice is that people who have no business injuring themselves swinging feather-weight clubs in the modern age are doing so.

I mean, how do you hurt yourself swinging today’s driver?

Tiger Woods Is Still So Good…

He literally shot -1 on one leg on Thursday and don’t let the +2 round yesterday fool you – after not playing in a Tour event in a year and a half, another back surgery and a shattered right leg, the man has scored better than all but 18 players thus far.

Granted it’s Augusta National where he could play blind-folded in the dark, but come on.

More Musings – New Model Turbo Boosts The “Drop & Pop?”

One of the visuals or “feels” that has survived the MCS Classic Golf Swing era for me is the “Drop & Pop.”

Of course, this makes perfect sense as the optimal golf swing would have zero impeding factors in helping the club face get to the bottom of the golf swing arc.

Not One “Feel” Or “Visual” Clue From Dunaway/Austin

I have to conclude that the real reason no one has ever mastered the true intricacies of the swing model known as the “Austin/Dunaway” is not because it’s too complicated or difficult to learn.

It is simply, in my view, that it wasn’t explained in a way that people could relate to it.

Musings: The “One Major Move” Still Applies To The New Model

If you are in the optimal address position before initiating the backswing pivot, there’s not much that can go wrong, but one must be wary of not performing the optimal mechanical move, since (if you’re going to this trouble) you want an optimal swing.
