I unfortunately missed the window on a possible shot at competing in the Masters (Senior) class at the upcoming World Long Drive Championship in Oklahoma next month, due to the delays with the “E = MCS” video.
The weather wreaked havoc on my shooting schedule and delayed release nearly a month, and that month, if I had been able to complete the video in late June, would have given me the time to work out on the swing and gauge whether it would be feasible to give it a whirl.
This is “deja-vu all over again,” as Yogi Berra would have said.
Those of you who have the “Kinesiology Of The MCS Golf Swing” video (Part 1 of the MCS Trilogy Series) will probably not be that surprised to know that, in the Peace River swing video, Mike Dunaway used a mechanically-correct version of the planted-heel swing I demonstrated in “Kinesiology.”

The name of the game with the golf swing is consistency. It doesn’t matter how far you can hit a ball, nor even how accurately you can hit a ball, if you can’t do it consistency.
In golf, you score when you put the ball where you want it for the next shot, more or less – and when you don’t put that ball where you want it, bad things are likely to happen – or at least things will happen that aren’t optimal.
I was looking for a good swing clip of Tony Finau today for whatever reason – I wasn’t going to profile his swing or anything, although he’s a prodigiously long hitter.
I was just looking to see what he pivot action looks like, and it’s not bad, but the one thing I learned about anything today while looking at Finau’s “Golf Digest” analysis was – and this is embarrassing to have to point out, I assure you – the swing gurus to the PGA Tour players don’t understand the release action of a proper golf swing…
It’s a difficult concept to grasp if you’re not accustomed to swinging in a mechanically-correct fashion, and it’s why most people who go to an instructor (especially one who subscribes to the “modern golf” school) don’t ever get much better from a certain point.
And that concept is that most “swing flaws” that you will see, hear about or address personally are a result, and not a cause.
