All I did was aggregate the best elements of the greatest Classic era swingers and remove their personal idiosyncratic parts, leaving the distilled model we’ve been working with for the last few years.
In that regard, the MCS Post-Modern Golf Swing model will be the second swing model I’ve actually built myself from the ground up (the first being the New MCS model of ’13), but if you need any proof at all that the setup for either the MCS Classic or Post-Modern models is pure golf, just take a look at the best self-taught golf swing ever seen on the PGA Tour.
I give you Sam Snead via the always excellent Classic Golf Swing pictures and video of Mr. David Poulton:
Bear in mind that the persimmon driver had to be struck much like a long iron to produce enough spin to keep the ball aloft, so this is your basic long iron/fairway metal setup as the modern drivers are to be set up with the shaft leaning slightly back instead of forward.
Still, I believe I actually drooled upon myself when I saw this picture, because there’s so much yummy goodness to be seen in it.
Of course, it’s not just the face-on setup that made Snead such a great swinger and long driver – when you look at his down the line setup, it’s just as good:
Snead had the angled stance line that was an early component of the MCS Classic Golf Swing model so even that deviation from the current model isn’t a deal-breaker, is it?
To think this swing came from a country boy whacking stones around with clubs he carved from tree branches.
