44 year old Ho-sung Choi is in second at the Korean Open after three rounds.



If he finishes first or second we get to see him at The Open next month! ...Sweet move through the ball.



Not something you see every day. ; )

















Edit...

I see WRX added a story on the news page. Some more good shots of the swing there:

    In an interesting side note, one of the great golf teacher's of all time Manuel De Le Torre in a clinic taped from the 80s or 90s I believe mentions that he had a very good lady player at his club who swung the club like this. She came to him for a lesson and she hit it very well so he never changed the move.

    I was't talking about you...how could I, I have never seen your swing. But there have been some very ugly swing over the years that have won lots of majors. Who cares what a golf swing looks like if it get the job done?

    Was watching the Asian Tour yesterday mostly for this guy. Maybe I should give this a try. Been told a number of times I have a good looking and balanced swing and yet, the ball doesn't seem to care but goes everywhere - except of course where it's supposed to go.

    I am guessing that more than half of you did what I did; ran the video repeatedly, and stopped it at the top of his backswing several times, and stopped it at his impact position several times. His stance looks very closed at address, and his takeaway is well above the plain but actually isn't all that bad. Kenny Perry and Jim Furyk might have odder takeaways.



    At the top, he's actually in an excellent position, with the only caveat being whether it is good enough video to see how he is lined up along the line of play.



    And at impact, he is in a very good position. Almost instantly after impact, he's going completely nuts. But that moment of impact could be one of 1000 golf professionals.

    Yeah, that's exactly what I did. He looks to be closed to target in his stance with all clubs (other than putter). He appears to solve that by rotating much more than most, to the point that both hips rotate past where most would, so that the actual hips and shoulders appear to be toward target at impact. The pirouette is the result of that powerful rotation.



    It's amazing that he can time it well, but it makes biomechanical sense to me. It's like his stance increases the potential length of his backswing, and the pirouette allows him to do that without restricting his downswing or forcing it outside.



    EDIT: Put it another way:



    1. A closed stance allows more rotation away from the ball, because the stance is already rotated away from the ball in the rearward direction.

    2. An open stance allows more rotation through the ball, because the stance is already rotated away from the ball in the forward direction.

    3. How can you have both? Well, you have to move your feet!
