My mind has shifted into a different mode now that I’ve solved my setup issues with regards to stance and foot line, and something dropped out of the sky this morning while I went over the down swing transition.
What I was working on last evening was the syncing together of the leading and trailing arms, because even in a right-dominant or left-dominant swing action, you’re still using both arms, just with a different feel of which one is dominant.
You know the old saw, that a theory cannot be proven to be correct and that it can only be proven wrong – well, I still haven’t been able to debunk Mike Dunaway’sswing model and theory.
After my last two sessions, about which I was indeed correct with regards to my stance adjustments, I was still trying to solve the mystery of why my club face was turning over at impact, producing push-hooks, and I mean push-hooks.
I’ll keep this short and sweet, but the specter of Mike Dunaway will not leave me alone – time and time again I’ve said “Aha, I’ve got him!” only to be proven wrong.
That could be about to change.
Mike Dunaway, you’ll recall, was a college American football player (I say American because I have European readers who call a different sport “football”), and I daresay he was a better athlete than I was.
My practice facility and the area golf courses have opened for the season, albeit each day’s operations depending on fair weather, but I imagine by next week they’ll all be open whatever the weather.
With that, I may have had my last session indoors at the Tracer Golf facility. I wish I could say that I trusted the numbers but we’ve been over that, however I used the sessions to work on my new swing model, so it wasn’t a complete bust.
… and went all the way to the other end of it, which didn’t work of course, but I worked my way back and found the middle ground that works, I believe.
I really don’t want to go into details about what I’m doing because, until I actually say there is a new model different from the standard Classic Golf Swing (and the MCS version which was presented in “E = MCS” and subsequent videos), I wouldn’t want people leaving that model.
