This video is kind of long, but you will understand when you start watching and you see shots of Kevin Streelman, Boo Weekley, Luke Donald, Charl Schwartzel and Sergio Garcia shot on the course at 300 fps and a tripod. Kevin was going to play 9 by himself, and when we got to the tee Luke’s caddy was waiting there without Luke. We hit off, and when we were in the fairway Luke hit up as well. As Luke was walking down the fairway Sergio and Charl walked up to the tee and hit off as well. I had the camera and tripod with me, so I took advantage and got some awesome shots.

When we think of Luke Donald the first thing that comes to mind is the syrupy rhythm and the perfectly balanced finish, which make his swing appear graceful and uncommonly effortless, sort of a refined Fred Couples.
