When golfers and instructors speak of the perfect golf swing they often refer to only a straight golf shot.
However, a perfect golf swing cannot be restricted to hitting a golf ball straight.
A perfect golf swing should be defined as the best golf shot for the specific situation.
More specifically, a perfect golf swing only occurs when the desired alignment of the club face strikes the ball on a correct angle and, on the path that matches the golfer’s shoulder line to fly the ball to the chosen target.
This assumes the shoulder line is parallel with the target line for straight golf shots or, parallel with the directional line–the imaginary path on which the ball should fly initially… for shaped golf shots such as a fade or draw.
For example, if faced with hitting your ball around some obstacle between you and your target, a straight golf shot would not be available if you wanted to fly your ball to your target with just one shot.
Instead, it would be necessary for you to evaluate which golf shot would best fly your ball to the target and, if you have the ability to hit such a golf shot. Not every golfer has the skills of a Phil Michelson or Bubba Watson when it comes to shaping golf shots.
However, assuming you possess enough skills to hit different shaped golf shots, then the only perfect golf swing would only occur if you were to hit the best golf shot possible for the specific occasion, such as hitting your ball around an obstacle between you and your target.
So please do not be confused about all the discussions regarding a perfect golf swing. The perfect golf swing is not always a straight golf shot.
The perfect golf swing only occurs when the best golf shot is hit relative to the situation at hand.
