Dunaway’s “Figure 7” Leverage – Why?

I wrote a post about Mike Dunaway’s “Figure 7” leverage last year and just want to expand slightly on the what and why of how it is so powerful in creating that leverage.

The reason is because the body and legs especially are so much more powerful than the arms.

Cameron Champ vs Mike Dunaway – Leverage

I said I would give everyone a chance to just look at the down the line swing action of Mike Dunaway’s superb mechanics, so let’s take a look at the longest driver of the ball on Tour, young Cameron Champ.

Now, there are more differences in their swings than similarities, which is why Dunaway never hurt himself swinging the club while Cameron’s had back issues since his teens.

Putting More Ben Hogan In My MCS Pivot – WOW!!

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.

Hogan’s Greatest Pivot Move – Misunderstood To Mean “Restrict The Hips”

I like to use Ben Hogan’s pivot move to illustrate the perfect pivot action for a reason – he didn’t have the “move off the ball” action with the head, and his head stayed in place on the pivot, leading me to coin the phrase “floating pivot.”

This stable head allowed him to strike the ball with unearthly accuracy (he complained about playing 36 holes per day in some events because he sometimes drove his ball off a tee in the afternoon and ended up in the morning’s tee shot divot).

Cameron Champ vs Brooks Koepka (Technique vs Muscle)

This is not, I will say off the bat, any comparison between skill level or ability – people are always confusing swing technique versus the overall game or ability of a swinger and the two are not the same.

I have been looking at Cameron Champ’s down swing to impact however and have compared it to Brooks Koepka’s and this is the thing:

PGA Tour player Cameron Tringale, according to the PGA Tour, set an all-time mark in the stat “Year Over Year Speed Increase,” making a jump from 111.28 mph to 119.94 mph in one year.

A Summer Of “Low Impact Heel” Investigation Now Bears Fruit

I mentioned in an earlier posting that I had made several new discoveries in the subtleties within the standard model of the MCS Golf Swing.

I suppose the early days seemed so much more fruitful than the past couple of years have been, due to the diminishing number of things to investigate and clarify.

Miscellaneous Findings Re: The MCS Golf Swing

As you all know, I’ve been looking into various aspects of the MCS Golf Swing model to ensure that there is a blueprint for producing one’s desired “optimal” golf swing within it.

There are a few things I’ve come across that could have been surprising but were, on second thought, absolutely logical, and that’s what you want – to be able to understand/explain the reasoning behind “how” and “why.”
