What I Found & The Changes In My Swing

OK, I mentioned yesterday in one of my breaks from swinging and writing that I had found something in the setup that should be something everyone will or should have in their own swings when they find their optimal address position.

How Did Mike Dunaway Produce So Much Power With Such A “Short” Back Swing?

You’ll remember that I talked before the holidays about “Big Legs, Little Arms,” and that this is the key to developing the most efficient leverage for a seemingly effortless swing packed with power.

Dunaway’s “Stickman” Gif. With Head Tracer!

I just receive this from JM, who has contributed so much to my blogging in the past years, such as the old vintage swing magazine from Jimmy Thomson and who also sent me his SwingRite years ago, the same one you’ve seen in the “E = MCS” and “EMCS2” videos.

Mike Dunaway & The “Pull-Pull” Leverage Concept

First, I have had great feedback from a good many people regarding the Kettle Bell “One Exercise” from the “EMCS2 – The Follow Up” video, thanks to all.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – the “One Exercise” is a cure-all for just about any problem with the swing between back swing and finish.

Regarding Mike Dunaway’s Shoulders At Impact

Someone from Wax Nation (JS) asked some good questions in a comment on my posting about Mike Dunaway and his superb syncing of his 3 Levers.

I know that many people don’t wade into the comments on sites (which is understandable when you see the level of discourse at times in many sites’ comments sections, but a shame if you’re not following the discussions here at WAX), so I’ll just post on the subject as I think many people might wish to read the clarification.

Watch Dunaway’s “3 Levers” In Action (Plus The Right-Biased Setup)

I have loved the swing gif. of a Mike Dunaway swing for years since I made it from a video clip showing his model in motion, and here’s another reason – you can see clearly the “3 Levers” at work in his down swing.

You can watch the three separately and the reason Dunaway was so effortless in his action is because he synced them flawlessly.

Use The “One Exercise” For The “Dunaway Down Swing”

I have been transforming my own golf swing for years, of course, during the time of my swing research and the one thing I was always looking to emulate was the so-called “Dunaway down swing,” which for me is the extension through the swing bottom with the low trailing heel.

Padraig – How To “Keep Up With Those Young Guys”

This is more to encourage others who saw what he was doing, but If I were to have a conversation with Padraig Harrington, who is a vigorous 2 years younger than yours truly, I would tell him that not only can he “keep up with those young guys,” as he stated in a post-round interview during the Irish Open last weekend (right at the end of the clip), but he can motor right past them.

First of all, he’s an accomplished major winner (3 times), which means it’s not like just hitting the ball a long way is going to suddenly turn a journeyman into a major champion, though it may.

It’s Not The Lifting Heel That Is Important… (Updated)

**Updated At Bottom

It occurred to me that the whole idea of swinging with a lifting heel versus a “planted heel,” as I like to term it (deliberately pressing the leading foot into the ground so that the heel doesn’t lift) has become a tiresome debate.

This may be due to the fact that I don’t think a proper swing has anything to do with whether the heel lifts a lot, a moderate amount or even a minimal amount.

Dunaway’s Best Swing Model

The swing model Mike Dunaway showed in the clip I’ve been showing is a nearly flawless one, and it’s too bad that it changed over the years, because I can’t see all that much in it that would have prevented him playing tournament golf.

I’ve been looking at it from all of the angles and there’s not much head shift at all, compared to some of the other swing variations he showed over the years.
