I was sent a Youtube link by one of my Wax Golf readers (thanks Benoit, what a nostalgic feeling I had, watching this!), from my own account, mind you – and here is the proof of what Brandel Chamblee’s book “The Anatomy of Greatness” asserts…
This swing model of mine, developed in 2013 and my first independent swing model (all previous models had been developed studying another person’s swing theory), is the same in principle as my current and last swing model.
And it’s what you’ll find in the setups and other principles of the Classic Golf Swing greats that Chamblee covers in his book.
Ironically, this model put me on the path to the final model and also was the solution (at that time) to my scoliosis and the fact that my twisted and bent spine opens my shoulders nearly 45 degrees when I’m standing with my feet squarely together facing forward.
That allowed me to come into impact on the correct plane instead of coming over the top and outside-in as my spinal curve made me do with a regular swing.
When I built the current MCS model for Jerry “Big Toilet” Crowell, PGA to use in his teaching and tournament playing – all I had to do was to widen the stance and bring the ball in, really.
The differences between the current MCS model and the “New MCS” model shown in the clip?
Only a couple of real differences – that narrower stance compared to the current model, and the ball further away from the body at address.

And of course, the Ben Hogan-inspired “perfect pivot” leg and hip action for the current model:
Everything else is the same, and aside from a wider stance, the two models are identical, and you’ll find the same principles in the Chamblee book.
Because, the “perfect swing” has already been found – it consists of the Classic Golf Swing principles of the greats of the past.
Take away their personal quirks/flaws/idiosyncrasies, because no one swings perfectly, including Yours Truly – and what you’re left with are the components of the perfect swing model.
The current MCS model is that, in my belief (and I’ll prove it, if everything out there now doesn’t already prove it, now that the modeling is complete), in that I think if one built a machine that moved like a human being – it would swing the way MCS says to swing.
And all MCS is… is that great compilation of the swing principles you’ll find in “The Anatomy of Greatness,” because Brandel Chamblee studied the same swingers in writing his book that I have studied in my 11 years of research.
It is only logical that we came to largely the same conclusions.
And there is nothing in the Modern Golf Swing that makes it better or easier than the Classic Golf Swing.
Sad, but brutally true…
