In the past, I’ve always looked at golf swing models that already existed, like Mike Austin’s swing model or the Classic Golf Swings of various legends, and tried to determine first, if they were viable models and second, if they were “optimal,” lastly if there was something to improve upon them.
I did exactly that with the Classic Golf Swing, taking the most successful Classic swingers & building a model based on the commonalities (stance, pivot action, etc) of these players.

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’ve spent the weekend clarifying for myself exactly why Mike Dunaway had the back pivot shift with a stable down swing head position and found something very interesting in the process.
I’ve been saying that for maximum accuracy and consistency/repeatability, you want to swing with a stable head position throughout the swing, but that you might sacrifice some power/speed doing so. Continue reading →
One of the things I can’t stress enough is the bias and tilt in the MCS Golf Swing setup, because if you look at the greatest swingers, certain principles are universal.
In fact, I set up a few principles a few years back while developing what is now the final MCS model, when I identified several universal swing principles for effective swinging, whether you want to swing exactly MCS or not.
I received the article from 2 people already (thanks C.R. & David D.), because once again, WAX Golfreaders know more about a proper golf swing than the so-called “swing gurus” who publish things or talk about the golf swing on TV/Radio.
I can’t be polite about this, because if knowing proper golf swing mechanics required a university or college degree, these people would fail freshman year, and they’re teaching people.
I keep harping on how position is the key to performing a mechanically-sound golf swing without compensations or manipulations.
If you think about it, the ball is not in motion, and if you are swinging from a fixed point on the ground, then there is really only position from which you can swing to make pure contact without having to engage some or a lot of hand-eye coordination and lateral/vertical motion.
Good things will happen. And this goes for anyone who is struggling with your back swing pivot, because you’re likely focusing on the club rather than the hands in the back swing.
If you use your hips and legs to perform your pivot and focus on the hands – remember the “One Major Move”from the“E = MCS”video – you will really start to figure out the true fundamental mechanics of a simple yet powerful, accurate and repeatable action, which is the essence of a mechanically-correct action.
There’s a reason for every single thing that is in the MCS Golf Swing model theory.
You’ll hear a lot of talk in certain circles about the need to “move behind the ball” on the back swing pivot, but that is only because the swinger is not where they need to be at impact when they begin that pivot.
