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.

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 whatís best for him and win.

Answer:

Ho Sung Choi.
Jim Furyk
Paul Azinger
Lee Trevino
Calvin Peete
Allen Doyle
Jim Thorpe
Tommy Gainey
Jeev M Singh
Eamon Darcy



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.

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.
