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.

    • As to the milling being cheaper than inserts I'm going to have to politely disagree there too. AFAIK cheapest inserts are much much much cheaper in production than cheapest milling. You have to factor in the cost of milling tools and their maintenance. A cast clubhead requires zero tools to insert. One human can probably do 400-500 inserts in a day, and the materials are super cheap. Milling requires a mill. And bits. And programs. And people who keep those things running. As far as I know the costs are not comparable at all, and that accounts for why all the cheap clubs at Walmart have inserts while the buying trend is milled. Golf Spy did a piece on this but suffice to say I can't agree with that statement but i respect your opinion. Cheers. 🙂   The TRUE Cost of Making a Putter Manufacturers throw around plenty of buzzwords to justify higher costs, but what does it really cost to make a putter? The answer may surprise you.  
    • Perhaps he was too weak to lift the club after "blasting" that drive...
    • And just to insert a quick reality check here cheapest putter at Walmart is $60 USD and as I mentioned is neither milled, stamped, nor Winn gripped.  Cheers. 🙂 Merchants of Golf 1113533 Tour x Golf Black Putter no.550 | Walmart Canada Buy Merchants of Golf 1113533 Tour x Golf Black Putter no.550 from Walmart Canada.

Anyhow I appreciate your feedback, noted. Cheers.
    • You're the second person in the past two minutes to say that, and like the other, I didn't miss the point. Patent pending means almost nothing. It doesn't mean they've been granted a patent. It costs very, very little to submit a patent application. Nobody's said "cheap as possible." Except you just now, and me in quoting it right here. The grip may be an aftermarket grip. Dude, it's not an expensive putter. If you can get $10 or $15 for it, go for it. That's my recommendation. It's a flat piece of metal on the end of a stick. I could make a putter that "rolls" things perfectly well enough for $4 in parts from Lowe's and a putter shaft. Hell, a hammer could "roll" it well. You're missing the points: The putter is nothing special. It's not worth much $. It's probably from some overseas, cheap, Chinese type place with no actual web presence or any sort of actual company. If it was a known company, Google would have some information on it. The lack of anything on it is a big key bit of information that you're ignoring.
    • Totally different logo, not the same Red Zone. I googled first, deduced the ones you mentioned were not a match, then came here. You missed the point. I do not see "patent pending" on hosels. I handle lots of putters. I can't explain it's presence to you obviously as I have yet to determine the origin of the putter but anyone who makes clubs knows that stamping the hosel is a step you would never make if you were making "cheap as possible" clubs. Again, no one said it's an expensive club but definitely was not made as cheaply as possible. Walmart's cheapest clubs do not have Winn Pistol grips, you can confirm that easily.   I just want to find out who this company was and this putter if I can, if I can't it's not really something I want to defend to someone who's never touched it. But I appreciate the feedback. It's definitely not manufactured to the cheapest standards, nor does it feel cheap. The roll is on par with more expensive clubs and nothing like the myriad $10 clubs here. Cheers.
