Swing Plane Follow Through

Swing Plane Follow Through

Hi, I am Stan Sayers, Director of Instruction for McGetrick Golf Academy and today we are going to work on our forward swing plane. A lot of times it is really easy to want to work up on the downswing or work extremely left on the forwardswing. We could be coming over like this which we don't want to do. We could also be coming up underneath and try to finish up. The more circular we can be the faster we can get the clubhead to swing. An object swings its fastest at 90 degrees to its axis, so if I can swing around my spine, not only am I stronger but I generate speed a lot more easily and with a lot less effort. Previously we had this shaft set up in the ground behind us for our swing plane in the backswing, now we have set it on the front side of the ball slightly outside the target line, I am giving myself some room, almost creating a little box here in front and to the outside of the ball and target line. This shaft on the ground at my feet is just for alignment so that I do not mess this teaching aid up because I want to stay in the right alignment and not be swinging incorrectly. As I set up I am just going to work underneath the shaft on the follow through. That is how we work on our forward swing plane.
