Video Golf Tip | Two Different Downswing Paths

Let’s talk about how you bring the club down from the top of your swing. Now if you are a two-planer swinging the club more upright, you have your shoulders more level and your club higher, you are going to need an arm drop down into the delivery area and then you are going to start turning your body as you go through. That is for a two-planer. For a one-planer that is more bent over and has the club more behind him, the right arm is going to have to stay on top and throw around the body to the left. If you start down with the right arm pulling in, that is how people get stuck, it puts the arms out in front and the club back too far behind you. So you will notice how I am actually turning my right arm palm down and throwing around my body to the left as I come through. It would look something like this. From the top of the swing, around in a circle and then to the finish. Stay on top with the one-plane swing, arm drop for the two-plane swing. You will be on your way to better golf.
