I just love this girl's swing. Everything looks so compact and cohesive and the sounds of her strikes are just brilliant.

I must admit I'm not a huge fan of the swing. Some of the lines look good, but he's missing rhythm and transition doesn't look smooth. I think the greats hit the right lines in a fluid, rhythmic way. I don't see him being a top tier tour striker like that. He really struggled in tee to green strokes gained last year...

Watched a couple vids on him though. Seems like a nice man and I'd be happy to be completely wrong about him.

Tom vs. Jack at Pebble in 95'

This is a fun one to watch with a number of good shots in there.

Great highlights at the 21:00 mark...

Inbee Park apparently missed 1 fairway over the course of an entire tournament. Wow. Even at 255 yards driving average I'm blown away by that.

Norcalvol sent this over to me a while back.
LPGA player superslotting the club.
Don't know who she is... anyone know?
Also, would like to see how she is working the club post impact. This all looks good, but would not work well with a swinger's release.

Anyone know?

She slots the club beautifully... really fantastic, but the swingers release will hold her back in the long run.
If she works out a more reliable release, she could be one of the top ballstriker's out there on the LPGA.
I took a quick look at her stats and it confirmed her troubles with driving accuracy.

Very tough to slot that deep then work into such an active clubface rollover through the strike. Too much clubface rotation and timing through to make it work consistently. She should look to get that cleaned up.

She makes a lot of birdies but her putting stats are not tops either. I would suspect she is a pinseeker, but not a great lag putter, or misses a lot of short putts.
Probably good putter from 10 to 20 feet where expectations relax her stroke and allow her to roll it more freely.

She also has some big issues with her foot action. Someone told her to keep her head still which is causing problems. She is not transferring her weight and her left heel is coming off the ground through impact. Not good.
Her instinct looks to be that of a hitter, very aggressive... and I like that. She will be one to watch out for if she works a few of these things out.
