Re-Building The Golf Swing – Ended Up With Mike Dunaway

In the past, I’ve always looked at golf swing models that already existed, like Mike Austin’s swing model or the Classic Golf Swings of various legends, and tried to determine first, if they were viable models and second, if they were “optimal,” lastly if there was something to improve upon them.

I did exactly that with the Classic Golf Swing, taking the most successful Classic swingers & building a model based on the commonalities (stance, pivot action, etc) of these players.

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 thatĀ that is the staple of the Mike Austin school of swing.

The MA/MD Visuals Didn’t Work For Me

dunaway clotheslineThat’s not a criticism or condemnation, just an observation.

It’s also likely that most of them haven’t worked for theĀ  majority of the people who’ve attempted to replicate either man’s swing. Why that is, I’m not sure.

The Dunaway “Post-Modern” Model – Putting The Pieces Together

dunaway planes dtlThe work has continued on the MCS Post-Modern Golf Swing model during this never-ending local lockdown, which I’m now hearing will be extended from its previously extended date of May 21st to the beginning of June.

It’s possible I won’t be able to actually test-drive this model until July if things continue, but I’m making the best of the down time with the work on this model.

Dunaway’s Post-Modern Model Is All About Setup

dunaway impactOf course, it’s never quite as simple as any title implies, but I’ve spent 18 months working quietly on the Dunaway model.

I can verify that while I came close to it during this time, I’ve only nailed (in my mind) the swing action from A-Z after I really got the setup measured.

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.

Dunaway Model – Latest Developments

You’ve likely noticed, if you’re excited about the MCS Post-Modern/Dunaway Swing Model project that I didn’t post any video work from last week or this week.

That is because I’ve been looking closer at a part of the pivot (the start of the takeaway) in greater detail, as that’s been my particular sticking point to date.

Week 2 – Changes To Setup & Pivot Action – Getting There!

Well, what a difference a couple of changes make!

I made a setup change and worked on transitioning to a better pivot action than what I’d been making last week and the visual difference was striking when I got home to peruse the video evidence.

May 9th Drivers In Slo-Mo

I’m not going to spend a lot of time on these swings as I still have a change to make (hopefully just the one), at which time I’ll definitely want to discuss every aspect in full detail!

For now, here are slo mo gifs of the driver swing from the two angles I shot on Tuesday, down the line and face-on.

Almost Nailed It – One Thing To Change!

I have been looking at more video from yesterday and I was this close to nailing it.

There was one thing I missed on the back swing pivot – I didn’t go there to try to swing in pieces, I went there to just swing & see how much of the model I got right over the winter.
