Who has the best looking, fluent, consistent swing on tour at the moment?

Russell Henley. The week before… Jason Day. Before him, Bubba.

Point being they're all good.

That's subjective right? Some people like certain traits more than others. It's like choosing between best ice cream flavors.

I'll humor you if the others won't. My favorites are Adam Scott, Schwartzel, and Jonathan Byrd.

I like Chucky Schwartzel's swung too. I like Gary Woodland also.

If there's a swing out there I could have as my own, it would be Louis Oustheizen ... however the hell you spell it.

With that swing and that putting stroke, I never understood how he doesn't win more.

I really like Grant Waite's swing, though I don't think he's on tour much anymore.

If we're talking about aesthetics, I'd go with Rory McIlroy, he makes it look pretty smooth.

In terms of ball striking I really like how Hunter Mahan, Zach Johnson and Jason Dufner hit it.

Right now, in terms of subjective beauty, it's Charl Schwartzel for me. His 3 quarter range iron swing looks perfect to me. The look, simplicity, efficiency, the rhythm... and from a mechanical point of view, he hits all the positions I think are important to hit. I just love it.

Funnily enough however, Schwartzel lost in the Matchplay to Jim Furyk a couple weeks ago, so go figure. There's more to scoring low than having what I or anyone thinks is a pretty looking golf swing obviously.

In terms of ballstriking consistency, I think the best swing on tour is Steve Stricker's. The guy barely plays but still maintains a presence on the world rankings. His minimalist approach with his wrist angles is something I think we can all learn from.

So I'd go with Stricker I guess.

Adam Scott, Rory McIlroy, Ernie Els, Charl Schwartzel, and Louis Oothshuizen are my top 5 in no particular order.

Agree. We share the same taste! Rory for pure classical beauty and Dufner and Zack because I'm a huge fanboy of pitch elbow! Duf and Zack's A5 are AWESOME!! Call me weird, but I actually really like watching Furyk swing, it's so odd but so cool at the same time. What a freak, especially with a driver. :bugout:

I agree, and Louie is long to boot.

Rory's rhythm is beautiful. I like the little hip opening move he does as his trigger move. That's so unique.

lol totally forgot about Mahan, edited my post :-)

Watched him on the range hitting 4 irons for about 20 minutes at Riviera. Obviously all those guys hit it well but Mahan is a notch above most of them. Rarely misses his start lines and curves it the same amount every time, hits it pretty solid too ;-)

I'm surprised no one has mentioned D.J...He may not be the most accurate, but his swing sure looks good.

    • Parsons Xtreme Golf, GoDaddy Founder Starts New Golf Company
      First time I had the 0311 7i in my hand, I look up at address and say, "How very Ping of them." My instructor, who is a dealer, looks up, smiles, and says, "Ya' think?" As you know, Parsons lured 2 senior Ping vets away to start his company.  The hybrids are also attractive, moreso in hand than in pics. Sound is solid yet feel at impact is still lively - an effective balance.
    • Hitting behind the ball and making deep divots...
      Hi there! I also took a look at your swing. First, mvmac's response is stellar. Study that video and try to replicate the swing you see in his example video, placing emphasis on keeping your lower body more stable during the swing. Some golf basics: hitting behind the golf ball (ie a fat shot) is almost always the result of not getting your weight over to the left side at impact. By getting your weight over onto the left side before impact you will be promoting a slew of good things, like coming into the golf ball with the hands ahead of the ball at impact and the shaft leaning forward, all things that will promote hitting the ball first and then the ground, and hitting down on the ball.  In your swing what I saw was a tremendous amount of hip rotation in the back swing combined with a sway to the right side. At the top of the backswing your hips are so open and your body so far off the ball that its going to take an incresibly timed athletic move to get back to your address position and onto your left side prior to impact. Instead, think of the golf.swing as more of a rotary action. Your upper body turns away from the golf ball while your lower body tries to maintain the position you were in at address. As you wind the upper body back, try to feel like you are restricting the hips and teyinf to keep them in the same position as address. In actualityx the wonding back of the upper bidy will pull the hips back slightly and you should feel some tension, like your body has been wound back like a spring. From there the correct move is to do the opposite, rotate your hips to the left, shift your body weight onto your left side, and let the lower body and club fall onto the correct plane. From there you can swing hard and through the golf ball. A good drill is to practice the forgoing with 1/2 swing, pausing for a moment between the back swing and downswing. Hope this helps!  P.s. fatigue will always affect performance. If your arms feel tired and your focus is gone, its always best to move onto chipping/putting.
