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).
Yes, if you watched the CBSbroadcast from the PGA Tour’s 2015 Quicken Loans National event yesterday, you would have seen Peter Kostisusing MCS terminology describing the hybrid swing mechanics (“pushing/throwing” combined with “pulling”).
