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.

Frankie knows, @klineka… and to answer your question, @golfdu… uhhhhh… I don't know. Inbee Park is pretty smooth, but she also doesn't hit it too far.

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 dunno, Lydia Ko maybe?

The only thing I do know is that the answer is definitely not Lexi Thompson or Brittany Lincicome. 😉

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.

    • That may be true, but the average amateur is unlikely to be better than 45% from a 140 yards.  And the pro can probably hit the same club or at worst one iron longer from the 200 yards in.  Most amateurs are hitting like an 8 iron or so from 140 and the pro can probably manage with a 7 iron from 200.  The pro is definitely better with a 7 iron than an amateur with an 8 iron. The reason the pro is better from 140 than 200 is probably because they are hitting a PW rather than say a 7 iron
    • You see this in other sports.   Anybody can coach great talent but it takes a good coach to get the best out of each and every player.
    • I may be a bit unfair to these coaches so I’ll admit that up front. But what I tend to believe is that many of these coaches that ‘got their name in the lights’ really lucked into it for the most part. They’ve taught hundreds of people before and nobody knew who they were. Now that definitely doesn’t define their level of quality. Not at all. But when a coach happens to score a player who is super talented and has the ‘it’ factor I can’t help believe that player was going to make waves regardless of his coach. Hank Haney got the majority of his notoriety from coaching Tiger. So did Sean Foley as did McCormick from Spieth. From the years of being on this thread I firmly believe Erik is every bit as good and better (Hank Haney) than these guys. I will agree that McCormick is a good coach as I’ve been told this by respectable people who are in the know. I just don’t think he’s anything so special that Spieth needs to remain with him.  At least not now. He needs renovation, not tweaking. I’d never heard of him before Spieth came to the stage and now he’s on commercials and pumps out dvd’s as an all time best instructor.  I think the talent of these golfers played a much bigger role in their success than the coaching they received from these guys. Just my opinion.
    • You know what I'm talking about.  That hole that eats your lunch every time you face it.  It may not even be a tough hole, but for some reason you can't seem to score well.   Mine is the opening hole on the Gold Course at Martin County Golf and Country Club.  It's a long par 5 dogleg left.  There's water halfway down, huge greenside bunkers, and several well-placed trees to punish any attempt at cutting the corner off the tee.  The rough slopes away steeply the whole way down the right side, often kicking your ball into the woods.  A bogey is my standard score.  I feel like I'm automatically going to be down a stroke right out of the gate. I've been playing that course since I was 12.  I'm 42 now.  Today, I reached the green in two for the first time in my life, then made birdie.  I couldn't believe it! Below are some short vids of me on my way to finally conquering this beast.  I'd love to hear about your trials with your nemesis hole.   And then the 3-wood, high draw to the green:
