Video Golf Tip | One-Plane Over-the-Top Cure

One of the most common problems in golf is coming over the top and probably slicing it too. If you are standing too upright and turning your shoulders too level to the ground as you swing, you can see that if I turn my shoulders around that would shift my arm plane out over the target line and then cut across it. If you have been trying everything you can to keep from coming from over the top, you might want to try the one-plane motion which would make things a lot easier for you. In a one-plane swing I am going to bend over so that I can turn my shoulders closer to the golf ball. They will be just outside the golf ball as the turn. Now if I turn my shoulders I have the club and my arms coming from the inside so I can turn my shoulders all I like. If you are standing up too tall you would have to not turn your shoulders and swing the arms down to get it coming from the inside. So bend over, try the one-plane swing, you will be amazed how easy it is to come from the inside and draw your golf ball. Have fun.
