Now that I’ve come to the end of my development of the MCS Golf Swing model, I can concentrate on helping everyone hone their own version of this swing model, and today I’d like to address the 3rd Lever action.
A while back, Jim asked a question about the “hip stall” he noticed in Mickey Wright’s swing, and which everyone talks about in Rory McIlroy’s impact phase, and I had answered back then that it is part of an efficient transfer of power to the ball (“cracking the whip”) that anyone can do with a proper down swing sequence.
This is because it’s the most difficult concept to grasp if you’ve been polluted by the Modern Golf Swing methodology.
Rather, it’s a supplemental to aiding one in implementing and using the MCS swing model presented in the “E = MCS” video which, as I said at the time of release, is the last swing model video I see myself producing.

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…
Why are you throwing the club at the target? Is the ball anywhere near that release point?
NO, it’s NOT…
I’ve got some photographic proof here that the “throw” or “Full Release” and not trying to create artificial lag in the swing do not lead to the “flipping/casting” that many higher-handicap golfers perform.
