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.

    • Well, apparently they weren’t printing my tickets...  
    • I tend to like it. In most cases, companies changed simply to match what was already happening.  People would, and always have, taken “sick” time for your aforementioned fun things, and still come to work while sick. Trying to verify and manage sick time, especially the one or two days when someone is (or claims to be) sick enough to want to stay home, but not so sick as to warrant the visit to a Dr, is a nightmare.   Now the employee can use their PTO however they want, and the company benefits from an easier to manage system.   Just for fun....the day most often called out for being “sick” is the Monday following the Super Bowl.  Imagine that.      Yup
    • I disagree, and both companies I have been at so far have had the 1 large PTO bucket, and I can't say I've really ever seen someone in the office who was so visibly sick that they shouldn't have been there.  Plus, for people who rarely get sick, the separate sick and vacation buckets would just mean they would either end up accumulating weeks upon months of sick time, or lie about being sick so they could actually use those days, especially if their employer has a "use it or lose it" policy where you can't roll unused days over to the following year. You just said you hated that policy of 1 PTO bucket, but then you said given the choice between those two policies you would choose the 1 PTO bucket. That doesn't make sense. Clearly the 1 PTO bucket must not be that bad of an idea if you would choose it over having separate vacation/sick buckets, right? I have the 1 PTO bucket and I think it is perfectly fine. When I plan out my vacations and other PTO days throughout the year, I make sure I leave a couple days unused in case I get sick, and then if December comes and I haven't used those days yet, I take random Fridays or Mondays off in December since we can't roll any unused days over.
    • so did I - was the classic gym rat with the weights before taking up golf.  Lots of power not too much precision in the beginning.   Over time I've changed workout routines to still get in strength work with weights  but I've incorporated  lots of body weight work, cardio, and flexibility work.   As a result (and I'm sure golf equipment advances help)  I'm tons more accurate.  had my best drive over the weekend that measured 320 in the heat and firm conditions.   I usually carry about 280.   In all I've been working out since I was 26, I'm 56 now. So I think weights should be a part of an overall fitness plan
    • I work for the government, and our sick leave policies are more liberal than most, I would imagine. We can use sick leave for any doctor/dentist appointment. We can also use it for any illness or anything like that. This includes a kid's appointment or illness. We don't have a bright line policy on medical documentation for using sick leave, except for extended leave for childbirth or something similar. I think it's in our supervisor's discretion to request some sort of documentation, but I've never personally had that happen. I can't imagine that happening for taking sick leave of less than 3 days, though. I hate this policy. I think it's shortsighted from management. People don't want to use their days off for being sick; they want to use it for fun things. I think it leads to sick people working more often, getting other people sick, and thus making the office less productive. If the choice is between 3 weeks vacation + 1 week sick time, or just 4 weeks PTO, I would obviously take the 4 weeks. But I would also be coming into work sick more often.
