    I can't believe he's 45.

    The guy is awesome. His downswing is right on plane despite his unbelievable foot work. I don't know how he can be consistently accurate with that foot work. Can't argue with his results.

    Wow! Giving hope to the rest of us. Gonna start trying that spin move and maybe add a Patrick Reed helicopter finish too.

    Even Luke Donald tweeted swing your swing after Choi wins.



    What a golfer he is though, to probably been told numerous times he needs to fix his swing but keeps doing what’s best for him and win.

    Ho Sung Choi.

    Questions:



    Who are golfers none of us can beat?

    Who are golfers that wouldn't have been successful if they changed their swing?

    Who are supremely confident people?







    Man, I wish my impact position looked like any of them.

    Yep. For Choi things look relatively normal until just after impact. Then it's Gary Player after a couple hits off the pipe and a case of Loko.

  • CasualLieCasualLie Do Woodchucks Chuck Wood? Members Posts: 1,403 ✭✭
    I was talking with a local pro who is Korean about HSC, and as it turns out HSC crazy looking swing is the result of battling with back problems. Makes sense.



    Take a look at this guy...







    Same issue. Just goes to show, again, it is the extreme consistency of a tour player's swing that stands out above all.

    Choi Ho-Sung was leading during the 2nd round for a while before falling back.



    This tournament is usually high scoring, so he is still in with a good chance.
