The Three Pivots Of Classic & Post Modern

I hope everyone had a safe and sound weekend in WAX Nation – I was working on my pivot today & thought I’d share my observations on there being actually 3 pivots for the Classic & Post-Modern Golf Swing models.

The first, as we have been looking at it for years, is obviously the pure rotational Classic Golf Swing pivot, where you turn the torso and shoulders using the hip & leg action.

Progression With The “Dunaway” or “Post-Modern” Swing Model

It is surreal sitting down at the keyboard to share my thoughts at this time, as there are far more serious issues at hand worldwide.

However, sometimes doing the normal thing can bring a little respite from the storm and I’ve had my fill today of looking at numbers, graphs and projections.  How about a little swing talk?

I Used A Combo Of Austin/Dunaway To Build My MCS “Dunaway/Post-Modern” Model

Part I Of A Series

I said in my last post that I would call the MCS model based on the “shift-and-post” swing model pioneered by Mike Austin the “Dunaway” only because the model I built looks exactly like how Dunaway swung and not Austin.

I May Have My “Post-Modern” Swing Model Completed (Dunaway)

As I said before, this would be an MCS swing model using the principles of the “shift-and-post” mechanical swing model pioneered by Mike Dunaway.

If anyone wants to ask why, since they were both based upon the same principles, it’s not based on Mike Austin’s (who was Dunaway’s mentor we all know), it’s because it looks like Mike Dunaway’s and not Mike Austin’s.

Unseen Mike Dunaway – Modern Driver

Thanks again to A.H. for sending me these two angles of Mike Dunaway hitting a modern driver back around 2011.

I had always wondered what Dunaway or his mentor Mike Austin would have looked like hitting the modern drivers with the longer and flatter-lie graphite shafts, and here is big Mike D.

The Post-Modern Golf Swing (Dunaway)

I’ve been doing some soul-searching this winter during my blogging hiatus and I was struggling with to how explain certain things about the Mike Dunaway swing model.

First of all, I was struggling with the very concept of calling it a “Classic Golf Swing” action because… it really isn’t.

Mike Dunaway’s Address/Impact Shaft Planes

As I get deeper into Mike Dunaway’s entire swing, I would love you all to see something that blows away all of the stuff you hear about the best swingers having the same shaft plane at both address & impact.

This could have huge ramifications for MCS the swing model, which is why I want to point it out, besides showing yet another example of Modern Golf Swing instructions focusing on things that have little relevance to proper mechanics.

So, MCS or Mike Dunaway? Here’s My Opinion!

This posting is actually just an elaboration on the comment responding to peterallenby2013’s comment on yesterday’s posting.

peterallenby2013 has been a long-time and much-appreciated (by me) member of WAX Nation and I was struck by his kind words in the comment he left.

Dunaway’s Swing Was So Different – All Leverage

I’ve been harping about Mike Dunaway’s leveraged swing for some time now and I can say, as I close in on exactly what he was doing and how to replicate it, that I don’t know of any other move in golf like what he did.

I said after my initial attempt to reproduce Dunaway’s action that there were a couple of things I had to adjust.
