Video Golf Tip | Baseball for One-Plane Golfers

Let’s talk a little baseball because all baseball hitters do a little something that all one-plane golfers would like to do. When they hit they put the left arm across the chest, the right elbow is back and up, and from there they swing the arms across the body in a circle. If I turn in this direction you can see my right elbow up and back, and as I swing through on this side my left elbow goes around me and around out the other side. Notice the speed I am getting with my hands and arms swinging across my body. I do not need a huge turn, as a matter of fact you see guys hitting guys hitting it out of the ball park from this half back position with the arms. If I hit a baseball for you, drive it out of here, and that is out of here, then do the same thing with my golf club, all I am going to do different, instead of swinging up here at baseball level, which would be a good practice swing for those of you who are slicing, this high off the ground, all I have to do with my golf club is then bend from the hips to get down to my golf ball. Then make the same rounded swing, and that’s a homer. You would be surprised what baseball can do for you, I can’t make it any simpler than that. Good luck.
