“The swing is far from classic. The shaft is almost vertical halfway up the backswing and her head swivels toward the target as, or even before, she hits the ball. It’s not a method you would teach, but nor is it one a wise teacher would seek to alter. It works, and what more can you ask of a golf swing.”

That is what Golf Australia observes in documenting the success of Korean-born international and LPGA player Inbee Park. In the decade that just ended, Park won more major championships (seven) than Brooks Koepka and Rory McIroy (doesn’t rhyme with choke, but he spit up all over himself in the final round at Riviera last Sunday), who collected four each. Park grabbed an Olympic gold medal just for good measure.
