Thanks to all new readers (and old) who’ve purchased your downloads of the MCS Classic Golf Swing video, your support of the blog is much appreciated!
I thought that since the lockdown in our area has shut down the local courses & driving ranges (don’t ask me how one can contract Covid-19 standing on a range ten or more paces from the nearest person in an outdoor setting, because neither I nor anyone else has a clue), I would go over the MCS model from the ground up with some refresher points & logic that either aren’t actually part of video or, if they are, bear repeating.
I was looking forward to getting back out to the range next week to both test-drive my Mike Dunaway-inspired “Post-Modern Swing” model mechanics as well as investigate the possible exact same-ness of the MCS Classic & Post Modern Golf Swing models with the exception of the pivot action.
That will all have to wait as we’re now under a stricter Stay At Home order which has extended to immediate closure of golf facilities, possibly until late May.

It’s been a while since I posted iron swings so I went back to 2019 (so strange to have to go back 2 years since I was on hiatus last year, but here we are), even though I’m pretty sure the action will be visibly different this season.
Reason being, you don’t work on your swing for two years without showing a marked difference, such as my takeaway & down swing planes.
I found an interesting little article from Plugged In Golf about club speed comparisons by age & gender.
I was surprised by my own placing in the category – perhaps it’s because I’m always comparing my swing speeds to the fastest swingers in pro golf & used to follow the long drive game until it became a little much hype-wise.
I’ve been going over my swing clips from previous years & have a pretty solid theory (at least from the swing work I’ve been doing during this endless Covid-19 lockdown), that a properly performed MCS Classic Golf Swing motion would differ from the MCS Post-Modern Golf Swing (based on Mike Dunaway’s swing) in only one regard – the pivot action.
This is rather depressing – according to Justin Rose (and many others for certain), the quest to increase power & distance in golf is going to lead to shortened careers.
This is depressing to me because it means that the golf industry is still mired in the harmful mechanics of swinging in the Modern Golf Swing style, which means that it will shorten careers (Tiger Woods being Exhibit A), but also that it’s something that doesn’t have to happen. Continue reading →
