This vid belongs to the series of the Forgotten Great Swings that shows my personal choice of biokinetically sound motions that are worth learning from.

From Wikipedia:

Charlotte Cecilia Pitcairn Leitch (13 April 1891 — 16 September 1977) was a British amateur golfer. She was born in Silloth, Cumberland, England, the daughter of a local physician and one of three sisters who excelled at the game of golf.
In 1914 she won the first of her four British Ladies Amateurs, taking the title from Muriel Dodd. Her opportunity to possibly win several more was interrupted for five years during World War I. When the Championship was restarted after the war, she won her second straight title then the following year made it three in a row. In the Championship finals on six occasions, in 1926 she won her fourth British title, a record she shares with Joyce Wethered.

Cecil Leitch retired having won 12 national titles plus she captured five French Ladies Amateurs and one Canadian Women’s Amateur. She wrote two books on golf, the first titled Golf was published in 1922 in Philadelphia and London by J. B. Lippincott Co. and the second titled Golf Simplified published in London by Thornton Butterworth in 1924.
