Comparing Two Great LPGA Golf Swings

Two of top players on the LPGA are Brooke Henderson and Nelly Korda. They are always in the mix and during last weekend’s LPGA tournament at Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament Of Champions was no different. They both had a shot to win, but Henderson lead from wire to wire to ultimately be crowned champion. Interestingly, the LPGA sent out a Tweet that compared each swing. Running the video simultaneously, I noticed many similarities and a few differences. I am not an expert a swing analysis and to be honest, I would love to swing my clubs the same way as Henderson and Korda.

Swing Speed And Ball Direction In Golf

Most amateurs equate swing speed with ball distance. This thought process is correct (to a degree), however it is not the only affect swing speed has on your game. Swing speed can be defined as how fast the golf club is traveling when it strikes the ball. There are several ways to generate swing speed that amateurs can investigate, yet that is not the topic of today’s post. I can tell you that the process of increasing our swing speed can be challenging because of the change in mechanics we employ thinking that we are helping our game. When in fact, we are causing more challenges at impact, thus causing our ball to every which way. There is a simple explanation for our direction woes that was not that simple to figure out.
