Here’s A New “Throwing” Concept – Straight Down

For those of you who have grown accustomed to the “throw release” concept of the power or trailing arm action, here’s one for you in order to really get the Mike Dunaway in your down swing – think “straight down” with your throw.

You all know that I’ve been pursuing Dunaway’s down swing action for my own particular MCS Golf Swing model, and let’s keep in mind that there can be many variations of the MCS swing action.

Video – Driver From Wednesday (1st Set)

Here is a video clip of two angles I took with the Driver swing, and this is from the 1st set of swings before I unfathomably changed my setup slightly – the 1st set, I nailed it.

One thing I always look for, because I coined Ben Hogan’s action the “floating pivot,” is a stable head on the back swing, but if you really want to unlock leverage and power whilst preserving accuracy and stability, you want as stable a head throughout the entire swing for a true “floating pivot.”

Xtreme Leverage Pt II – Driver

Not much to say today as I pretty much laid it out in yesterday’s posting, so here is the Driver swing shown from the same two angles.

This is as extreme as I can go, swinging with the right arm and hand only with the hips & legs, but in doing so, I also proved that the swing is indeed a whole-boy motion.

Xtreme Leverage – Never So Much Power With So Little Effort

I’ve told you all about the challenges of swinging right-handed while being left-handed, the biggest one for me being the ability to swing with a right-dominant motion.

Today was an auspicious day for me, as I finally got a years-long flaw in my setup fixed this week, and right after that – bang – I was able to make right-dominant swings.

More Junk Science From CBS & Modern Golf (You Won’t Believe This)

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any crazier with Modern Golf Swing concepts and junk science, I saw something this weekend that literally had me shaking my head and laughing during the segment.

I had actually forgotten about it, so silly was the premise, but Walter brought it back to mind yesterday in a comment.

I’ve Got Something Special For WAX Nation – Closing In On A Million Views As Well!

Before I address today’s topics, I took a look at my site metrics yesterday and was pleased and gratified to see that WAX Golf has passed the 900,000 views mark and will pass One Million Views in the next few weeks!**

** In fact, I would have well over 1 Million views already for WAX Golf but I had it on a different server than the WordPress server for about 4 months in the first year, which views aren’t recorded by my current server.

The Great News – You Can “Push/Throw” Or “Pull” Your Swing All You Want

I’m sure that, to many people who are dominant in one side or the other, it has been a little disconcerting to read my thoughts on the optimal swing requiring both sides of the body.

Putting Puzzles Together & Sundry Thoughts

I’ve been on the shelf for swinging for nearly a week now, due to the cracked or badly bruised ribs I incurred on one of my cough syncope falls.

I have been limited to easy swinging, just practicing the setup, making sure of the position and then making the easy motions at around 40-50% – hard enough to engage all of the muscles but easy enough not to strain the ribs.

Leading Side Leverage = Pulley/Winch/Gears

Because of the nature of the difference between the body and actual machines, it’s not a perfect analogy, but you can consider this – when used properly, the leading side produces leverage for the down swing that is akin to a pulley or winch, which emulates the gear action of a machine.

Mike Dunaway’s Leverage

If you think think that being a right-dominant swinger doesn’t require you to use the left or leading side equally, think again.

I took a super slo mo of the Mike Dunaway “stick-man” swing to show his down swing transition and the “drop” that he made into the “3 O’Clock” position.
