Another fan commented on her shoes from the video. She had worn a pair of black open-toed shoes with white socks under them. “Gotta love the shoes!” the fan said.

Moving on to the intriguing comparison, a fan compared her swing to that of the veteran Scottish golfer Colin Montgomerie. “Big @colinmontgomerie vibes with that swing.” It makes sense considering how they both favor full swings that are smooth and rhythmic. 

Hull’s perfect swing received a few more praises in the comment section:

Better swing than most adults”

“Great swing even then 👏”

There were some comments that expressed admiration and adoration that could move anyone. These comments showed how much hope Hull’s fans have for her and her potential victories.

A fan had commented, “At this moment, she knew she was tour bound.” And the commenter was right. The determination in her swing shone brightly, even at that young age. Admirably, her strength and power have remained through the years and have evolved with her.

“No wonder you’re one of the worlds best with a swing & impact position at such a young age. Keep smashing it.” This was another fan taking the superlative to describe Hull’s charisma on and off the course. 

After finishing four times this year, including two majors, Hull is all set to set her hands on her first title. Should she proceed with the same energy and enthusiasm she displays now, it seems likely. With the support of her fans, we wish her the best in her mission.
