I knew you would want to watch this one. These are two interesting ladies in the golf business, one of whom plays the Tour (Natalie) and one who commentates (Holly), but both are known for being about the most attractive women in the game. I was able to grab Holly’s swing from TV last week at the tournament in Palm Springs, and of course Natalie’s is all over YouTube. The comparison is interesting since Natalie is the better player, having won on Tour and managing to stay out there for years with what can only be described as an odd swing. Holly’s swing is much more conventional, as are the problems we see with it, namely poor use of ground forces to engage the midsection, a better use of which would enable her to produce a much more effective strike with every club. Gulbis is a mystifying subject as her swing has not produced the results that everyone had hoped for and yet it has not changed much over a long period of time in spite working with Butch Harmon. There may be many reasons for that, and I am not privy to the inside scoop there, but it doesn’t seem like it would be such a stretch to improve her right arm position in the backswing.
Anyway, at the end of the video I ask the viewers to choose Holly or Natalie, and it can be on any basis you want it to be. Just choose one. We will keep score.
