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.

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.

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.

Over the years I have admired this guys swing more and more.

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.

    • Unforgiven Anybody don’t wanna get killed, better go on out the back.    Deserves ain’t got nuthin’ to do with it.    Hell of a thing, killin’ a man. Take away everything’s he’s got. Everything he ever will have. 
    • Day 9.  Spent a fifteen minute break earlier today hitting 8-iron and 6-iron full swings, off a mat, into a net, real balls, indoors.  Hit about as many balls, careful to make sure I am at practice pace. 
    • Day 443: Did some backswing/takeaway drills (COVID-19 day-3 and something I found on AMG YouTube). Then some COVID-19 day-5 drills. Then some full swing balls with 9-iron and 3-hybrid.
    • Thanks for your reply. To elaborate  I use the GPS on the watch to conserve the iPhone battery. What I don’t understand is why it only used 1% on Friday but 21% today with the same settings.  When I raise my wrist to look at the watch, the grint is nearly always open, when  I used Golfshot it was always on the home screen with similar settings.  I had to keep pressing the button on the watch to get back to golfshot. 
    • I’ve used Golfshot in the past. 18Birdies has a watch app that I used a couple times.  GameGolf has one. There are others, I’m sure.  I currently use the watch app for Arccos, because I use that tracking system. Not sure about the “disappeared off the watch” problem.  I don’t recall doing anything special for setup, but whenever I raise my wrist with a round going, it’s got my yardage right there (Arccos and Golfshot for sure, I think it did with GameGolf, don’t remember with 18Birdies). Maybe try (in the Apple Watch app on the iPhone): General > wake screen > wake on wrist raise (and) Return to clock after 1 hour.  I don’t know of a way to improve battery life in the watch, but I usually put my iPhone in low power mode when I play, and that helps prolong the iPhone battery without adversely affecting the golf app function.  But using 21% of battery for a round doesn’t seem excessive (meaning you finished the round with 79% left).
