Video Golf Tip | Function of the Swing Plane

You know swing plane is a fundamental of the swing map and very important as an understanding of how you should swing a golf club to get correct efficient solid golf shots. It’s a very technical part of the golf swing. So I’m going to try it in two ways. First will be a very simple discussion on play then secondly a kind of subtle perhaps a little bit more of a technical version. From the address position, what’s really happening in the swing plane is you’re trying to combine the swing of the arms with the turn of the body. So an easy reference from the address position is at the top of the backswing, is the club over the right shoulder or hitting down to where the ball is? It’s a simple reference to the swing plane. As you come back to impact and swing through, is the club over the left shoulder? That’s a very simple reference to play and for many people that’s all they need to know. Why is plane important? Well, if the club is coming too much from a flat plane to the inside, you’re going to use hand action to try to control the ball from going too far right. If the clubs too much in front of you, your going to try to control it from going too much to the left. So swing plane has a very basic function.

How Swing Plane Affects Ball Flight Watch Video>>

Elevation Changes Affect Aim On shots that have a downhill or uphill elevation changes we tend to align ourselves incorrectly, so make these necessary corrections
Push Cures Push shots are caused by a swing that is too shallow and from the inside, many times caused by the body moving in front of the ball during the downswing and causing the club to get stuck behind the body
Vision Focus: Hook Cure Use your eyes and vision to change your ball shape by getting your torso on top of your lower body to cure your hook
