I'm not a huge fan of his swing. Seems a bit quick.

Louis Oosthuizen... great swing.

 

OP, maybe a poll after this thread is complete?

Charles Barkley.... I kid, I kid.  I'd have to say Dufner just because it looks so effortless.  Then again, he makes everything look effortless.a2_wink.gif

Freddy Couples

So smooth and effortless. And it goes a country mile. I try to emulate that tempo and transition. Just not very well.

If I'm allowed to pick anyone from any era, I would have to take Ben Hogan

Adam Scott...  perfect swing

post #62 of 189

So many people saying Adam Scott, to me it just looks like he's going to shank it.. Also I hate the dude for beating Cabrera in the masters and costing me a 5 figure bet..

If we're going historical, Bobby Jones. And it's not even close for me.

He doesn't win with his swing, he wins with his mind. Well, that and his unbelievable short game of course.

Seriously I would keep my own I have worked too hard on it to give it up and I love the results of it. The shape the sound all of it.

 

However the only thing with it is some distance and for that reason I would take whatever Freddie Couples is having for his easy power. Man that tempo with my mechanics. He's 53 and can hit 300 yard drives with a bad back and I'm 41 and fit and about 100 yards behind him. It's just mesmeric to watch him swing. I don't copy his moves but the overall speed of that swing is just perfect to behold.

Pretty sure you'd love the look and sound of your new, stolen from a pro swing better.

You went for Adam Scott, right? And from the tone of your posts you seem to have this idea that Tiger Woods is a pretty average ball striker from tour standards, "can't hit driver etc". Check this out. Tiger and Adam, exact same greens in regulation stats. Same number of holes, same percentage.

Tiger thumps him in proximity to the hole though, a full 105 spots better.

Don't take offence, this is all about personal preference and what you like to see in a swing. But to say Tiger 'doesn't win with his swing', when his ball striking stats are better than the player you suggested has 'perfect planes, powerful...' suggests some serious bias is going on.
