Swing Analysis: Lydia Ko, LPGA

By Wayne | Videos: Swing Analysis

Lydia was the top rated women’s amateur for 2 ½ years, from the age of 14 to 16. She turned pro and after playing in only 23 events she was ranked 5th in the world. She moved to number 1 when she was only 17, and has been there ever since, finishing 1st, 1st, and 2nd in the last 3 women’s majors. Here we look at the massive swing changes she has undergone in the past year

Lydia is one my favorite golfers (male or female). The way she dissects a golf course is something special to watch (hitting it on a rope almost every shot sure does help). It also helps when you putt it as well as she does. Excited to watch her game continue evolve over the next few years.

Hard to imagine Nicklaus, Hogan or Jones thinking – I am now number one in the world – why don’t I totally rebuild my swing? Aesthetically I preferred the ‘look’ of her old action and the new one looks contrived, even though she may be doing one or two things better. Seeing the old swing, I am encouraged that you can hip-slide off the planet on the backswing and still win Majors. I spent years trying to correct a move which was only half as bad as hers…and all it did was mess with my head.
