Swingin Siren - it's Lyndsey Hunnell
Virginia's very finest
Words: Tim Southwell Photography: Lyndsey Hunnell
This quote is one of the first things you see on Lyndsey Hunnell's instagram page
"....it's alive, this swing, a living sculpture, and down through contact, always down, into terra firma, striking the ball crisply, with character. A tuning fork goes off in your heart. Such a pure feeling is the well-struck golf shot. And then the follow through to the finish, always on line." -Roy 'Tin Cup' McAvoy
We'll drink to that Lyndsey, we'll drink to that.
