But Of Course – 2 Models = 2 Setups, 2 Grips, 2 Pivots…

The best decision I’ve done recently has been to focus on one model instead of trying to work on both, and I’ve been vindicated on that.

In doing the work on the grip, the picture began to clear as soon as I looked at what the hands are doing in the setup, during the pivot and at impact – wonder of wonders (sarcasm here, it should have been obvious), the MCS Classic Golf Swing & Post-Modern Golf Swing models are as different as day and night.

Rebuilding From The Ground Up (Because One Must) & Some Revelations On Mikes Austin & Dunaway

Not One “Feel” Or “Visual” Clue From Dunaway/Austin

I have to conclude that the real reason no one has ever mastered the true intricacies of the swing model known as the “Austin/Dunaway” is not because it’s too complicated or difficult to learn.

It is simply, in my view, that it wasn’t explained in a way that people could relate to it.
