I will admit to having had a few jokes and laughs at Bryson DeChambeau’sexpense with all of the “Mad Scientist”stuff, but I am now actually interested in what he’s doing to some extent, because he’s progressed from when he went pro.
When Bryson turned pro, his swing model was one that I would not have called scientific in the least.
I had to cancel my video project last winter as you all know, because I ran into personal and work commitments that made it impossible to complete in the time I had set out for it.
One of the principles I had looked into, and the reason I always struggled to get that low trailing heel impact position no matter how well I struck the ball, has to do with the whole concept of synchronicity.
Having worked on the MCS Post-Modern pivot over the winter while the blog was on hiatus, I eventually came to the conclusion that, other than the pivot action, there should be no difference between the principles driving the two swing models.
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.
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.
I wasn’t disgusted with my form swinging the club after 5 weeks off when I spent a couple of days in Chicago two weeks ago and had the opportunity to hit balls at Medinah CC courtesy of my host Cory C, but let’s say I wasn’t happy about it.
I had someone with whom I’m working on his swing ask me, when I told him that squatting in the setup will interfere with hip turn, that it seemed to him that this was what I was doing during the down swing.
