I’ll Stop Joking About Bryson DeChambeau – He’s Making Progress On Technique

I will admit to having had a few jokes and laughs at Bryson DeChambeau’s expense 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’ll Repeat My Apology To Bryson DeChambeau – The Numbers Look Real

I wrote a blog post a few weeks back regarding my skepticism about Bryson DeChambeau’s purported ball speed numbers.

I’m now beginning to believe the hype, if you will, because if the following numbers from the trusted Foresight launch monitor are real, then he’s creating monster speed with his new, erm… physique.

Week 2 – Changes To Setup & Pivot Action – Getting There!

Well, what a difference a couple of changes make!

I made a setup change and worked on transitioning to a better pivot action than what I’d been making last week and the visual difference was striking when I got home to peruse the video evidence.

May 9th Drivers In Slo-Mo

I’m not going to spend a lot of time on these swings as I still have a change to make (hopefully just the one), at which time I’ll definitely want to discuss every aspect in full detail!

For now, here are slo mo gifs of the driver swing from the two angles I shot on Tuesday, down the line and face-on.

Almost Nailed It – One Thing To Change!

I have been looking at more video from yesterday and I was this close to nailing it.

There was one thing I missed on the back swing pivot – I didn’t go there to try to swing in pieces, I went there to just swing & see how much of the model I got right over the winter.

First Day Back With The Post-Modern (Dunaway) Swing

The golf facilities are open and it’s back to business with the Post-Modern Golf Swing model based on Mike Dunaway’s swing mechanics!

I hadn’t hit a ball in 7.5 months and I can tell you that the sore muscles are proof besides the visuals that I got the pivot action down more or less.

Mike Dunaway Swings Down The Line (Sybervision)

Here is an excerpt from the Sybervision video made eons ago, featuring Mike Dunaway in the white pants and blue shirt with which you’re by now assuredly well-acquainted.

I want to just leave it here for now without comment, because it’s such a great move of his from the top down.

My Apologies For Doubting Bryson DeChambeau’s 203 Ball Speed Mark

There are things I run across in the world of sports and hype that just defy belief.

Anyone with a scintilla of experience or knowledge would have to beg to see concrete proof of certain claims.

Ten Years Ago – “My Epic Drive Of The Day”

This is a post I wrote on October 29th, 2009, which was just before I began my Mike Austin years, so it’s shortly before many of you even knew about the Smash Golf Blog.

I am feeling nostalgic and I went back to my Smash Golf postings (the blog still exists, just now on a privacy setting) to see what I could re-live from 10 years ago (when I was only at the tender age of 39!!!), and found this gem.
