I have to admit to having overlooked Steve Elkington in the search for MCS type swings from the PGA Tour to show everyone – thanks to Joe S. for sending me the face-on video!
And the great thing about my work – I now have my readers sending me videos to check out for MCS characteristics – you can’t help but see what a good swing is when you get into the MCS way of looking at the swing.
So as I am saying, I’ve missed Elk – I know of him very well as a multiple Tour event and ’95 PGA Championship winner.
I just never had the thought to go and check his swing, honestly, as his prime playing days came just before my introduction to golf.
Well, I shoulda looked!
And now I know why he was considered to be one of the smoothest swingers on Tour in his day – this swing is as MCS as it gets:

Down the line, it looks just as good as the face-on view:
Steve Elkington – Down The Line
We’re talking about the same things here. The only thing I’d have changed would be his stance width, and of course with that would come a little “short-stop slide” action to ease the lower back on the follow-through.
So, if you want to see a swing model that is as close to MCS as you’ll see on the PGA Tour, you’ll never no further to go than Elk.
