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.

    • Thanks! I’ll try to drill out I like the idea of feeling pressure on your thumb. I’ve read the article multiple times. I was doing the armpit drill in attempt to stop getting my right arm behind my shirt seam. 
    • Anyone else played here?   I’ve wanted to come here since the late 90s, and I’m on the first family vacation where I’ve brought my golf clubs.   I’ve only played one of the courses, but really liked it.  Oleander.   Jekyll is an island off the Georgia coast, pretty far south.  They have 3, 18 hole courses, and a 9 hole.   The 3 18 hole courses all meet at the same clubhouse from what I’ve seen so far.  
    • “Yes, I’m vaccinated,” says NBA legend Charles Barkley. “Everybody should be vaccinated. Period.” “The only people who are not vaccinated are just assholes,” he says. The 58-year-old NBA Hall-of-Famer says he personally thinks sports leagues should force players to get vaccinated. “Can you imagine if one of these guys that are not vaccinated, if they get one of these players’ kids, wives, girlfriends, moms and dads sick and they die over some unnecessary conspiracy bullshit,” Barkley says. “I think that would be tragic.” NBA legend Charles Barkley: ‘The only people who are not vaccinated are just a--holes' NBA legend Charles Barkley on whether sports leagues should require athletes to get vaccinated.   He was (properly) given a trolling warning by our moderator while I was driving to State College.

    • If he changes his mind, I’ve lined up some resources.  
    • I’ve played several times on courses where my ball striking was really good and then the greens were either really slow, or rough, and it clearly kept me from going lower.   One time, years ago, I played on a wide open course with huge greens.   But they were slow as anything.  Hit 13 greens and putted horribly because they were like high carpet.
