Swing looks okay.. 73 from the tips would be hard to believe on a 7200 yard course if 9 iron is only going 140. But yeah I think you can shoot a 73. You have basic fundamentals.. the only thing I noticed was your weight in your follow through with the driver. People like to hate. Go play in a tournament and post your rounds too..
One thing I find crazy is it is almost like people do not believe that a lot of people out there can shoot low 70's.. lots of people can do that. Shooting low 70's from 7000 yards in a tournament is the next step. Then mentally being able to do it in my opinion to close out a round when it means something is the next step. A lot of guys have gorgeous swings out there. especially skinny guys.. hate those guys.
I agree with Dan here. Who are we to tell people whom we don't know what they are and aren't capable of? Brandon's also already said this several posts back, but anybody who's ever seen Tommy Gainey or Jim Fukry play golf should know that you can't judge someone's ability by the "purdiness" of their swing.
(I realize that there is a backstory that I am unfamilar with that precedes the creation of this thread, however, there is no way we can say that the kid can't shoot a 73 one time based on one video)

Perhaps. And again, if I'm speaking out of turn here because of stuff posted on other threads I apologize. However, it's to be expected that people can get defensive when THE FIRST response to their swing thread is somebody telling them in no uncertain terms what they are not capable of. And based on the specificity of the "73" I assume it's in response to a claim.
If the first response to my swing thread was somebody saying "you're swing is meh and you're a big fat liar" I'd pretty much respond with "f**k that guy" as well.
Not taking sides, and not defending bad attitudes, just trying to ... I don't know ... waste time at work, I guess. ;) (And be fair)
