The Open is less than a month away folks.

After the controversy of the US Open that saw some of the world’s best golfers left well and truly beaten by a frightfully difficult course, The Open at Carnoustie represents a shot at redemption for many.

Jordan Spieth will be looking to defend the title that he won at Royal Birkdale in 2017, but all eyes will be on Tiger Woods who will be making his first start at the famous championships since making his comeback from a lengthy back injury.

There is, however, one player that may steal some of the limelight from Woods when the players take to the tees in Scotland.

South Korean professional Hosung Choi is on the brink of qualifying for The Open and he will surely have many a follower around the course when patrons catch a glimpse of his staggering swing.

Choi, whose swing has been dubbed “The Fisherman Swing” in his home nation is in real contention at this weekend’s Korean Open, which could see him qualify for The Open.

Watch the simply indescribable swing below.

Incredible - and as real as it gets.

It is not often that one get’s to use the word ludicrous, but this feels like an apt occasion.

It is a marvel that the ball ever gets where it is meant to be going, considering the fact that Choi looks like he has fallen afoul of some kind of gale force wind as he swings to strike the ball.

However, it undeniably works for the Korean and while it is undoubtedly unorthodox, you simply have to love how unique it is.

Golf is hard enough as it is, and so who can begrudge Choi using whatever means necessary to ensure that he gets the job done at the end of the day.

Imagine the scenes when he unleashes that swing in front of some of the golfing purists at Carnoustie.
