Who Has the Smoothest and Most Effortless Swing on LPGA Tour?

LPGA Tour only, please. This is somewhat unrelated to golf but I feel it would relate to this topic, Joel Embiid from the NBA once said that he would watch Youtube videos of only white guys shooting 3 pointers as supposedly their shooting motion is better and he said it did help him improve his own 3 point shot. I can't help but feel that my tempo would be better from watching the smoothest and most effortless LPGA Tour swinger ever rather than watching PGA Tour players swing. What do you guys think?

I dont watch enough LPGA to name a playera, but I just want to make it clear that even though their swings might look effortless, they really arent effortless, they're swinging really hard and nearly as hard as they can on almost every tee shot with driver.

I just went and watched a few videos of some LPGA swings, this video is from 2012 but Na Yeon Choi's swing look pretty smooth and effortless.

She probably doesn’t play anymore but I’ve always liked Meg Mallon’s tempo. I’ve seen some very smooth ladies swings on Instagram but they are not in the tour.

I give you Anne van Dam:

Don't think she's technically on the LPGA Tour, but close enough for this topic I'd say. More of her:

I am in love with her swing.

Yes, Anne the Dutch longhitster. Funny to see her at te Rosendaelsche and the International. Played both courses. 🏌️♀️

But I don’t know if she’s eligible. 2019 will be her first year on the LPGA.

I'd love to have any of the swings from the videos posted.   They do look very smooth.

maybe if I wore a skirt? ....   

Pleeeease, nooo. Damn, now I’m going to have that image stuck in my mind.

I’ll just review Anne’s swing some more to undo what I just read 😁😂😁

I like Yani Tseng's swing too, not sure if she's changed it though.

 

Guessing she’s apparently a pretty long hitter too...8i 165 carry is a pretty good number!

I'll take Mickey Wright over anyone.  Ben Hogan said she had the best swing he ever saw.

Inbee Park is just so relaxed, she is in my thought bubble when I feel I’m getting uptight. Doesn’t always work.

    • Day 319 Didn't get much sleep last night so felt crappy all day, and didn’t have great energy or focus practicing. Did some mirror work on takeaway/backswing, and then hit about 25 balls with a 5-iron. Actually hit the ball surprisingly well considering how tired I felt. 
    • Today’s Session 10-27-20 GOALS: Internal rotation of trail hip Wider, shorter backswing (if goal 1 gets easier) Swings (with 8 iron today)   Goal 1: Trail legs This looks like success to me. Trail knee is facing pretty straight (FO). Goal 2: Wide arms, shorter backswing I was not able to try this too much today. Goal 1 still took too much mental effort. I will be able to work on shortening backswing soon.   I must get the club to go more “around” and less “up”. This path causes shanks for me. Takeaway must be more “low and away” Arm action seems wide enough. Just have to not hinge wrists up so fast. Also my head is not twisting and kinking as bad. I’m not thinking about it, but it is doing better.
    • I meant to post about this round a few days ago, but here it is! We played my birthday round this past weekend at UNC Finley. I briefly thought about the gold tees (~6800 yards), but we all ended up playing the blue tees which were about 6200 yards (yes, even my brother played these tees, even against recommendations from me, my mom and my dad to play the white tees), and I shot a 95 (46-49). I’m fairly happy with my front nine, two doubles and one par with 17 putts. The back nine, however, is where my putting went sour. I had a lot of 50-footers on the huge greens, and I took 23 putts, including a four-putt double on the 11th hole. That was the low point of the round, although I did finish with my only triple bogey of the day. It wasn’t even that hard a hole (straightforward 370-yard par 4).  Although a bit more penal than my home track, I loved this course, particularly the par-5 17th. This one was just over 500 yards from the blue tees, with split fairways on the second shot. The green was what I thought was the most difficult on the course. It was two-tiered, but the top tier was 18 inches above the low tier. The pin was on the lower tier, and my brother found himself on the upper tier. He three-putted, which is actually pretty fair from where he was.  This was a fun golf course, particularly the back nine. My favorite stretch was 15-17. I mentioned 17 above. 15 is a longish par 4 with water all down the left side. The 16th is another par 4, this one about 360 from the blue tees. The tee shot is over a huge area of gorse, making for a heck of a view, not to mention intimidating! The approach is all uphill, at least a club. I also played a twilight nine today. After making triple on the first hole, I played well (with the exception of a double from 90 yards on the sixth hole) on the last eight to shoot 46. My bother came along too. But when we finished the third hole, he hopped over to the sixth tee and played 6-9. He claims to have gone double-birdie-bogey-par after going +4 on the first three, meaning he shot +6 for seven holes. A really solid round from him. So 27 solid holes of golf in the past few days. I’m pretty happy with where my game is right now. I haven’t been scoring great, but I’m hitting the ball well. I need to work out a few bugs with putting (exactly 100 putts in my last 45 holes), but I’m playing well apart from that.
    • Good luck!  No excuses, you know the golf course.
