Shift & Post Golf Swing (Not Perfect, But Not Bad)

4 impI wrote earlier about the lack of hip shift in some of Mike Dunaway’s swings we’ve seen in his Mike Austin collaborations, so I decided to see how much if any actual hip shift I got myself performing the shift-and-post move.

I’ll say this – it is very difficult to make immediate swing changes as most of you who’ve really dedicated yourselves to improving your swing, but I was able to make a passable impression of a pivot where my head had to shift.

More Fun With Mike Dunaway (Peace River Video Pivot)

dunaway pr top-impI have been going through my Mike Dunaway library and once again, instead of taking the word of the participants at face value, I decided to take a closer look at hiss pivot in the Peace River video.

I wanted to see how it compares to the “compound pivot” or “shift & post” or “shift & tilt” (shift hips, tilt spine) action that that is the staple of the Mike Austin school of swing.

The MCS Classic Swing vs Post-Modern Model

dj top july 03I’ve been going over my swing clips from previous years & have a pretty solid theory (at least from the swing work I’ve been doing during this endless Covid-19 lockdown), that a properly performed MCS Classic Golf Swing motion would differ from the MCS Post-Modern Golf Swing (based on Mike Dunaway’s swing) in only one regard – the pivot action.

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.

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.

Cameron Champ vs Brooks Koepka (Technique vs Muscle)

This is not, I will say off the bat, any comparison between skill level or ability – people are always confusing swing technique versus the overall game or ability of a swinger and the two are not the same.

I have been looking at Cameron Champ’s down swing to impact however and have compared it to Brooks Koepka’s and this is the thing:

Cameron Champ Down The Line (Awesome)

I have been looking at Cameron Champ’s swing down the line from about a year ago, and it’s just mesmerizing to see how he gets to impact from the top of the back swing.

I’ll show his face on swing later, but for now, let’s just look at the down the line goodness.

File this under the “Doing The Opposite Of Modern Golf Instruction Will Improve Your Performance” category, and if there wasn’t one before, there is now.

PGA Tour player Cameron Tringale, according to the PGA Tour, set an all-time mark in the stat “Year Over Year Speed Increase,” making a jump from 111.28 mph to 119.94 mph in one year.

If You’re A “Puller,” It’s Correct Action But On The Wrong Angle

That’s right – all of the people who are angst-ridden and feel you’ll never be able to swing powerfully because you “pull” the club down from the top, are actually not making the wrong motion.

It’s just that “pullers” fail to properly sequence the down swing (although a lot of it has to do with the setup and back swing pivot rather than what happens on the down swing) and pull on the wrong angle.
