Video Golf Tip | Two Approaches to Delivery Position

Let’s talk about how you deliver the clubhead into the ball from the top of the swing in both the one and two-plane swings. A lot has been talked about whether you should retain the angle coming into the ball and for a two-plane swing this is critical. You have your arms swinging in front of the body, you are keeping your arms in front of your body, that is what gets the club up and down, and you are using your body pivot to swing the club around. So when the club comes down it would be only natural to pull the club into here as you bump into the left. From there you would release your hands over and hit your golf ball. In a one-plane swing you are actually releasing the club right from the top all the way through, there is no holding on. As a matter of fact this is the worst thing you can do in a one-plane swing because if I take the club around behind me and then I take my handle and pull on the handle and put the right arm in front of my body, then I have just left the clubhead behind me. Most people call that stuck. So right from the top of the swing I can go ahead and release the clubhead. Right from the top right around to the finish of the swing and release it as hard as you like. You can go find your ball right down in the middle of the fairway pretty far out there. Have some fun.
