This is more for the “throwing” swingers, but if you are a hybrid swinger, this concept should also make sense to you as it simply shows the right or power side action in a throwing and/or hybrid swing action.
I keep hearing the same argument when anyone resists swinging with mechanical-correctness, usually in the form of an internet/armchair swing guru complaining about MCS.
PeterAllenby, one of my long-time readers, is part of a forum where he tries to spread the word.
When he linked to a clip last year or before on my 4 iron swing (not the one from the last posting, a different one), he was told that the “throw release” would be difficult to play with as “it requires too much timing.”

I have edited it because in the original posting, I alluded to the claims of Payne having taken lessons from Mike Austin, which of course is another one of the Austin mythical tales – however, the swing as performed by Payne Stewart is so obviously a “pulling/hybrid” swing of the MCS family type – what a swing! /update
Brandon wanted me to take a look at Payne Stewart’s swing with regards to how it compares to Mike Austin’s technical theory. (edit: Instead, let’s look at it from the current MCS swing theory).
Michelle Wie did exactly as expected during the Ricoh British Women’s Open – I had said she’d either MC or WD, and she WD’d on the way to a guaranteed MC, having aggravated her left foot injury by playing hurt.
As I also said before, many athletes finish a game or same-day competition fighting through injuries, but then they go away and get better before competing again.
