Golf is a game filled with unique talent and quirks, but every once in a while a swing comes along that is so pure, the Arnold Palmer adage of “swing your swing” goes out the window and the envious “I want that swing” is more accurate.
As crazy as it sounds, golf fans have almost gotten numb to the beauty of Adam Scott or Louis Oosthuizen’s swings. Sure, they’re definitely still pleasing to the senses, but there’s just something about the new kid on the block.
With that said, allow us to introduce you to Anne Van Dam, an LPGA Tour rookie from the Netherlands who has one of the most hypnotizingly beautiful golf swings you’ll ever see.

The Dutch sensation has caught the attention of some pretty heavy hitters in the game as well, including Brandel Chamblee and Curtis Strange.
She may well have the best swing in golf right now. https://t.co/w7QaWupYUY

If you don’t want to take their word for it, how about the word of Dame Laura Davies, one of the most respected players in the history of women’s golf.
“She’s the longest woman I’ve ever played alongside, without a doubt,” Davies told Golfweek.com’s Beth Ann Nichols in a feature on the Dutch sensation.
At 23 years old and with three Ladies European Tour victories under her belt, Van Dam is teeing it up on the LPGA Tour for the first time this year. Don’t be surprised to see that swing pop up in a few big spots soon.
