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.

Even Simpler – The Natural Leverage Action To the “One Major Move”

By golly, I think I’ve got something for everyone regarding the nature of the “One Major Move” in the MCS Golf Swing and why this is the way you want to do it.

I’ve talked about how we are not machines, so we can’t swing like machines, correct?

Look At Mike Dunaway’s Leg Action

If you watch Mike Dunaway down the line in the below gif, you’ll see what I’m always harping on with regards to the hips and legs powering the pivot.

I’ve been watching this gif for a different reason, because I can’t get past Dunaway’s swing.

DJ Does Right, Mike Dunaway Does Left – Same Concept!

Those of you who’ve been around for a while will remember that I began talking about the Iron Byron having the action that one can emulate with both arms.

I believe the first video in which I did so was in the “Kinesiology Of The MCS Golf Swing” video from the summer of 2015.

Mike Dunaway’s Impact/Release Concept (Similar To The Wall)

I found the video from Mike Dunaway in which he talks about an Impact/Release concept (if you still like and need concepts, they work ’til you don’t need’em!), and it’s very similar to the “Swinging Into A Wall” post from earlier in the month.

So, Uncle JJ mentioned it┬áin the comments, but I couldn’t find it at the time, even though I agreed with him on the similarity.

Build The Leverage Into Your Setup – Proper “Using The Ground!”

I have got some good stuff coming when our spring that won’t come finally gets here.

We’ve had no snow on the ground for weeks now but the temperatures stubbornly refuse to climb above freezing, so we hold…

I Brought Up “Big Legs, Little Arms” Before The New Year…

It was back in December, and ironically, it was about how Mike Dunaway produced so much leverage with such a “short” back swing.

The “short” part meant of course that his back swing didn’t produce a club shaft way past parallel or even pointing at the ground the way long drivers have.

Fun With Mike Dunaway – He Could Have Been Longer

It’s something to say about the late Mike Dunaway, because he was generally regarded as the longest driver human on the planet back in the 80s (even being hired as the Callaway club protot-type tester for their original Big Bertha driver).

However, I do think he could have been even more powerful and longer, but I’ll add the caveat that his college football career was ended by a leg injury, so I’ve never been sure that he wasn’t doing the best he could in later years when he took up long driving.

I Made A Gif. About The Downswing Last Year…

And it was a year ahead of its time – the gif. was from a sequence in the “MCS – Dropping The Hammer” video.

It was, as you’ll remember, a “Lesson With DJ” type of video working with friend and long-time WAX Golf reader David D., on the proper mechanics of the “Dunaway Downswing.”
