Best swing on tour?

I think tommy fleetwood. Love how controlled yet aggressive it is, and his abbreviated follow through on his irons.



Many will say Rory, but I’d take Tommy’s swing over Rory even though Rory is longer.

    Thinking Benny Goodman. Known as the King of Swing. Played a helluva clarinet while leading the band. Their tours were legendary.

    I'd be pretty darn happy to swing just like about any of the top 200 in the OWGR, maybe top 500, lol, they all are pretty darn good, more than the swings that separate 'em.



    Put me down for Tiger's on his good days right now - it is a thing of beauty.

    Why not? He's the best golfer in the world and he's not doing it with the short stick.

    In person, John Daly’s swing is incredible. So fluid, smooth, and effortless. It’s also fun to watch him grab a club, take a rip off his heater, and then go to work. Never seen anyone play to the level he does with basically no pre-shot routine.

    There's a difference between the best swing and the best looking swing. Freddy will always be my favorite swing to watch.

    Love Fleetwoods. Probably one of the best Ball strikers on tour..

    But on a humourous note I think Ho Sung Choi's

    is the best... Anyone that swings a club like he does and manages to control and make contact with the ball deserves that accolade.. 😂😂😂

    Bit of float load with the longer clubs. By design, or just the way he's always felt the transition? Flows beautifully...

    Not sure how this topic can get through 15 responses or so without the mention of sweet swinging Louis Oosthuizen. Pure fluidity.

    Byproduct of sequence. Definitely not the way he’s always done it. He’s a club and a half longer with irons and probably 5-7mph faster with driver than he was. 124 mph with 185 mph ballspeed the other day

    Still think Adam Scott has the purest swing on tour. Tiger’s current swing, particularly with irons and wedges, is also outstanding.

    He does a lot of things really well. But his swing is a series of compensations. Only an immensely talented athlete could make it work. You would never teach someone to swing like that.

    too hard to pick a favorite for me, lately I've gotten away from liking technically perfect swings and more so into speed and athletic ones so going to go with Rory and Dustin.
