US Women’s Open 2014 – Anatomy of Participants’ Swings

Anatomy of the swings of some participants -

similar or different to what the male pros of last week were doing?

Anyone care to comment on these backswings - in terms of how many separate joints are being moved and potential consequences to both ball-striking efficiency and injury potential?

What seem to be the common factors?

Please post your comments here.

From left to right:

Stacy Lewis, Michelle Wie, Paula Creamer, and (lower row) Jessica Korda, Se Ri Pak, Lexi Thompson.

[On the subject of anatomically efficient positions and injury  - look at Wie's kinesio-tape on quadriceps, hamstrings and around the knees, any guesses what swing-factor might exacerbate pain in the area?]
