Here’s another twist I would like to share with you all after the “swing up on the down swing” post from last week – that’s with regards to the down swing and guess what – when it comes to the back pivot, Up is Down!
The Advance Order offer will end in the next few days – another “Thank You!” to everyone who has taken advantage of the discount and ordered their copy of the upcoming “MCS – Synchronicity”video in Advance.
Here’s something that will twist many peoples’ brains – you get the most leverage, speed & power in the down swing by swinging UP.
Besides having figured out how Dunaway’s stance was different from what you usually see with the golf swing, I’m seeing right now how vital the pre-swing “press” that Dunaway used in his 375 yard drives demo was.
It works much the way I built my setup for the New MCS swing model from 2013 after I had left the Austin/Dunaway camp.
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 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).
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’sand this is the thing:
