best swings
« on: September 18, 2018, 01:48:21 PM »
What are your top 5 swings in LD right now.  Newcomers (or not) that you expect to hear a lot from in the next few years to come.

Reisbeck.........I still think he will get the belt in the next few years.  really cool move especially when the wind helps a cut.

Kois..........just solid.

Moose........seemed to be rejuvenated this year and has always had a great swing.

Wes Patterson.........top tier speed and seems very efficient.

Mitch Grassing..........I love how natural he makes it look and has speed to burn.  Great LD move.

There was a really good LDer back in the day named Trez Simmons.  I'm sure some on here will remember him.  I remember at the Mississippi regional one year he hit a bomb to get through whatever round it was and I congratulated him.  He said "with my swing right now its like //XXX//ting in a swinging bucket." 

this thread is for the swings that aren't "//XXX//ting in a swinging bucket."  kinda like you Phil ;D

James' swing seemed a little bit yard sale throughout this year.  Obviously he is fast as hell (quite possibly the fastest) but his swing seemed quick in a bad way a lot this year.  That rendered inconsistency when he really didn't want it.

Adam Stacey then, one of the few competitors who could hit a consistent draw with a 5 degree 50" driver  8)

Talking of which, did we see any draws at the Worlds this year ???

Adam Stacey got screwed in 05'.  By the time he was up on the box only a sprinkler head was going to save him.  He was fun to watch.

pretty funny when he screamed at a ball he felt like he killed that landed 45 yards short of leader.

the leader was Sean Fister, and the conditions were much worse for distance.

Really good call bama.drew.  I only saw him hit once in San Diego and was very impressed.  Also, what on Earth happened to the great Brooks Baldwin.  Runner up to big Mike in 07' and then crickets.  Brooks was a real force from 04' to 07' and young at that point.  he is in his early to mid thirties no?

couldn't agree more with the Gentry pick.  I've been touting him for a long time.  I hope he returns back to full form for at least a couple of years to give it one more title run.

Best swings?  What is the criteria to judge?
-how much the swing looks like a swing used in golf.  (Mobley-how pretty it looks while making it look easy)
-how many championships the swing has captured? (Zuback- 6 world titles)
-how much speed, distance, good ball flight with pound for pound athleticism? (Sadlowski)

However, this subject is about right now and up-and-comers.  Not so much as "where did they go because they had potential" guys.

Jeff Gavin (right now and 10+year up and comer) makes it to the finals in both divisions.  How many swings did he make to get to the finals in both?  Must have been swinging pretty good to do that.  Bad break with the rib/oblique injury prior to the finals.  He will be back.  In 5 years Reisbeck will be 45.  I see him doing the same as Jeff.

Newcomers?  Hard to judge that, but my picks would be Berkshire and Tubert.  Both can play golf well.  Berkshire will get better at hitting the grid under pressure, and Tubert will likely get a bit faster and longer with some off-season training.
Of course I use PEDs (performance enhancing devices).  Why else would the ball go so far?  100% legal, positive results every test, no prescription, USGA legal.  Common side effects; lower handicap, admiration of golf buddies, shorter short-game, gratification of a lost ball. thenitroforce.com
