ABSTRACT
The article focuses on how golfer Annika Sorenstam makes her swing. Her swing is built on simplicity and consistency that serve as the basic moves that always get the job done. She rotates everything from arms, hips, and shoulders away from the ball at the same time. The shaft angle in her downswing is almost similar of her backswing wherein the only difference is the flex in her legs.
