Hosung Choi’s golf swing is a thing of beauty

Every golfer has a slightly different swing, proving there are a lot of different ways to get the golf club back to the ball square and hit great golf shots. Even the pros have a variety of swings among their ranks, including some standout unique swings, like that of Jim Furyk or Hosung Choi.

Who's Hosung Choi, you ask?

Hosung Choi plays on the Asian Tour, and he's a round away from potentially earning a spot in the 2018 British Open Championship. Choi is in second place after three rounds of the Kolon Korea Open, which offers three spots into the field at Carnoustie for those not already qualified. Choi has gotten to this point with an unorthodox swing which just screams joy and swagger.

Take a look for yourself, as touring pro Tee-K Kelly shared with Golf Twitter.

The Asian Tour folks say Choi has what's dubbed a "fisherman" swing because he hits the ball and then casts the reel by picking his trail foot off the ground after impact. It's beautiful, and it's so happy. Not Happy Gilmore, just happy.

He shows a lot of swagger, too, when he plays, practically fist-pumping after every shot. It's like he's a technicolor version of all the highlights from 1960s major championship films. It's amazing.

I'm pulling for Hosung Choi tonight to win and get into The Open. You should be, too.
