Davis Love III Iron Shot Down-the-line Swing Analysis
Davis Love III has one of the best swings on tour. Perhaps the most I like about his swing is actually his rhythm, not his mechanics.
Here’s the breakdown:
At takeaway, Davis is perfectly on plane. (The line looks a little off because the shot was taken at a slight angle to the right)

After impact, you can clearly see Davis has hit the ball from slightly inside-out by looking at his club slightly outside the red plane line.
