There is no perfect swing, and no swing is exactly the same. Natalie's swing is fine. Her putting needs some work.

Not true, it is her inconsistent ball striking that is her problem. In 2009, She was 8th overall on the LPGA in putts per GIR and 12th in total putts per round. That's a combo that not many matched.

Seriously think about this. It is not just about "repeating" the same swing. Repeating the same swing would only really be worthwhile if the swing is...functional enough to hit shots, 1) with a predictable pattern and 2) far enough to play a typical course.

Exactly. I think when people make the comment about a repeating swing, what they are really trying to say is a swing that consistently squares the clubface at impact.

No, it is still a hack. If Furyk had a solid swing, he would have won significantly more. He is a tremendous athlete (like Natalie), that is held back by his swing. There is no way on this planet he should be 122 in GIR (2007) considering his physique and mental attitude.

Jim Furyk's physique........hah?

His mental game is amazing yes, but to comment on his physique like it is anything special is laughable. Fact is his swing works for him. If he switched to the robo golfer swing that many of the younger golfers nowadays have Id doubt hed be as successful. It doesnt do those players very well does it? Many of the greatest golfers of all time dont have swings that are taught nowadays. They all had their own intricacies. Tiger is probably the only one that has what many would call a "technically" perfect swing. There are obviously aspects of the others that are amazing but you dont see teaching pros teaching Lee Trevino's big block to the right even though he was one of the best ball strikers of all time.
