If you could have any pro's swing, whose would it be? - Page 8

post #127 of 218

Anyone one's but Jim Furik LOL.... swing + results he is a great player, but his swing doesn't flow at all!  He somehow makes that swing flow like butter.

 

I'd take Bubba Watson just for Driver, regardless of the results aspect, I just enjoy his motion. Very strong swing.

 

For everything else, I'd like Hunter Mahan swings.

Best golf swing ever, in my opinion, was Sam Snead.  Not far behind was PGA great Al Geiberger.

After watching this I think I have a new swing model... see that shaft flex?

Around the age of eleven or twelve I read articles by Mr. Geiberger that stressed tempo, especially for the taller golfer. Tour great Bob Toski said the 6'2" Geiberger "has the best looking swing for a tall man I've ever seen."  Well, I eventually grew to 6'3", and since I could not afford to take golf lessons, I tried to emulate Mr. Geiberger's swing.

Al Geiberger's theory on the golf swing for a tall person was relatively simple:  Slowing down the golf swing would give you a better chance of hitting more shots on the sweet spot of the club face. With a longer arc, the momentum on the downswing would create greater clubhead speed, and thus distance would take care of itself.

If you want to see Al Geiberger's swing, here is an old video  found on YouTube...

Yea this is a really sound swing, but I do feel that for myself I would want a little bit more "bend" so I can generate more speed.  Or that just might be a naive statement from a "rookie" golfer.

Total homer, but I've got to go with Louis. If I minted one 3-iron in my life like this, I would die happy.

 

 

Also like that he keeps it pretty simple.

Louis Swing is very beautiful.... But I still stick with my man!

 

To be honest I'd take any of them z6_surrender.gif

Jim Furyk.   He's the most like me, except his swing is on the same plane time after time after time.  I would be very happy to have his swing.

post #133 of 218
I said Freddie Couples for tempo but if I was pressed for someones mechanics then Hunter Mahan is the kind of one planer I want to be.

those South Africans have it sewn up ... 1) Ernie and 2) L. Oosthuizen and 3) SA born-turned-Englishman, Justin Rose.

I would like Dufner's Swing for long game, but not his short game or putting stroke!! (I have that already a3_biggrin.gif )

 

I would take Tigers short game and putting over anyone else , the only thing I have of his is a bad back and the ability to pull the ball left.

 

Prettiest swing out there has to be Luke Donald. Even if I couldn't score well I would like Luke's swing and short game so he's my choice.

If I had his swing, it would be my back that would be killing me.

im beginning to really love Justin Roses swing, tee shots/driver especially.  Jason Day as well for how hard he goes at it.

Agree, it's getting really good.  Tiger should use Rose as his model :-)

Totally Adam Scott.

The Big Easy, Mr. Ernie Els.

Adam Scott's is just about perfection though.
