Why The MCS Golf Swing IS “The Simplest Golf Swing Ever”

I’ve compiled some iron swings taken a couple of months back when I was producing the “E = MCS” video, because of course, the video is about how to swing, not a showcase for my own swing.

There are of course some of my swings in the video for demo purposes, but the place to really look at the MCS Golf Swing rather than learn how to swing this way, is here on the blog, where people can watch swing clips until their eyes fall out, if they wish.

Below here are 3 irons (5i, 7i & PW), just to show how simple and effective this MCS setup is, with the back swing then containing “One Major Move” and the down swing, the “Drop & Pop” action, shown from three separate angles.

It doesn’t get any simpler than this, my friends.

The diagonal angle, which is the first sequence, is one that I really love, and I know many of you like it too.

It shows so beautifully the natural and powerful leveraging force from the top that comes from the simple pressure shifting in the feet, which is about all I think about when swinging down from the top.


I used to have an over-the-top move, which I don’t even think or worry about anymore – that is the beauty of building a swing that works without consciously manipulating things like the hands, or the swing plane.

You simply get over the ball with the proper MCS stance and shift those pressure points, with the “One Major Move” going back, and the “Drop & Pop” coming back down.

For future reference, you can always see various swings of mine on the MCS Swings Page up top.

    Great vid as usual DJ!

    Am I correct in thinking that the backswing pivot is performed to set up the leveraged throw of the clubhead, from the top of the backswing into the ball ? And that the downswing pivot provides extra oomph to the speed of that forearm/wrist throw of the clubhead? Cheers!

      Hi Terry, and Thank You!

      As per your question: I don’t think of “throwing” the club, which is an image that Mike Austin used. I prefer to compare the down swing action with the trailing arm (the right arm for a right-handed swing) as the same as when you throw, but I just swing down and through.

      I found years ago that trying to “throw” the club caused all sorts of things to occur that I didn’t like, such as an early release, and big-time hooking or hosel-rocketing. So I don’t use that word in my swing other than to compare the action of the the power arm down into and through the bottom.

      If I were to think of the “throw,” I would go back to my original pre-Austin days where I envisioned “throwing” the club into the ground about a foot ahead of where the ball sits on the tee for driver.

      Of course, the action through the swing bottom is greatly aided by the wrist action, but that is not something that you want to do consciously – you want to “help” the club release as it does so naturally, and trying to use the hands and wrists to add power will most likely end in grief.

      So, if I throw, it’s into the ground ahead of the left foot line.

      And that gets you this position:

      However, I no longer think of much when the swing, other than getting that right hip back with the “One Major Move,” which as you say is the setup for the “Drop & Pop.

      So, I hope that answers your question in a round-about way! 🙂

    Sure does. Could be a feel vs real thing. If I focus on the pivot exclusively I forget about the arms and miss the “pop” move which I assume is the releasing or throwing feeling for me. For myself, this is where I feel the centripetal force and speed of the swing, through the forearms/wrist “pop” or throw through the bottom of the swing

    “The diagonal angle, which is the first sequence, is one that I really love.”

    –It shows something that you can’t see from face-on or DTL, mainstream’s favorite views.

    “A swing that works without consciously manipulating things like the hands, or the swing plane.”

    –In other words, the things that mainstream instruction concentrates on are not relevant.

      Hate to agree with you (because it’s a very unfortunate situation), but that’s about the size of it.
