Check out Sergio Garcia's swing
Around the Academy:




Sergio is someone who has made a swing all of his own.

Like his fellow Spaniard Seve Ballesteros who learnt to play on the beach, he had to work it out for himself.

As a result he has a swing that you would not teach anyone to copy.

But somehow he makes it work for him - he's Europe's best golfer after all.

Sergio relies much more on timing and feel than someone with a more classic technique.

And he's got a much faster rhythm than some of the other golfers I've picked.

Click on the links above to find out more about the unusual bits of his swing.
