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.

Video: How Quiet Is A 330 Yard Drive Swing When It’s MCS?

I have a swing on video from the May session at TXG Golf that didn’t make it into the 5 drive series that I compiled to look at the Launch Monitor specs, this one being from my “warm-up.”

It was actually one of my longer drive carries, at 307 yards, and I just wanted to show how “quiet” a swing is when you leverage it properly.

My Thoughts On Francesco Molinari’s Classic Swing Action

A WAX Nation citizen yesterday made a comment regarding Open Champion Francesco Molinari’s swing mechanics.

I have to say that I love how good some of you are getting a picking up on things on others’ swings!

Ben Hogan’s “Pivot Pivot” Action Was Misunderstood

It is likely because of the phrasing he used to describe his pivot, where he said he didn’t want his hips to move to the right on the back swing.

From there, you likely got the Modern Golf Swing mantra of restricting the hips on the back swing, which is completely off-base when you look at Hogan’s actual swing.

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.

More Proof On Setup & MCS Mechanics = Optimal Ball-Striking

I had some posts from earlier in the spring where I talked about how I could prove that a lot of the Modern Golf Swing stuff is completely off the mark when it comes to ball-striking.

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.
