Peter Whiteford, Challenge Tour. Interesting backswing - not sure if it's so steep because it's steep or looks like he wrist sets late.

The camera angle doesn't help.

It's not all of that, but it doesn't help.

Couple of videos of 5'3" Mo Martin. While not the long hitter averaging just under 240 yds with her driver, she averages 89% fairway accuracy due to this consistent swing. (apparently embedding was disabled on this down the line video).

The camera angle is a slightly in front of her here making the ball look back.

Embedding wasn't disabled. It embedded.

And I'd be pretty accurate if I was just hitting my hybrid from the tee, too. Shorter hitters tend to be more accurate. They can actually be less accurate (measured as the angle from the center) but hit more fairways because the ball isn't traveling as far.

She averages 233 yards… that's really short.

I know, but she's only 5'3". I'm averaging about the same distance and would love that accuracy. Still it's a nice looking swing.

Not really sure if this is a modeled on a real swing, and iffy if this belongs here, but it does come from the pro golf swings Twitter account and it's interesting to see the angles on hip, torso and shoulders.
