Video Golf Tip | One Plane or Two Planes?

Swinging the golf club on-plane is really important, but I want you to know that you have two choices. You can either swing the golf club and manipulate the shaft on-plane; a good friend of mine, Jim Hardy a teacher from Houston, Texas, talks about this as a two-plane golf swing. It is one in which you are actually swinging the club straighter back and you are rotating the club on-plane. It is a manipulation. Your arms are actually swinging above your shoulders and you are working the shaft constantly. You can swing the golf club a little more athletically where the club will go on-plane naturally, that is called the one-plane golf swing because your arms are swinging more on your shoulder plane as opposed to way above your shoulders. I happen to like the athletic golf swing especially for women because it is a lower maintenance golf swing. When you are swinging athletically your arms are going back across your chest, much like sports you have already played, like softball or tennis. So we are going to talk a lot about the one-plane golf swing for women and how it can make you a better player.

Ball Position at Setup Watch Video>>

Cure For Push Shots: Ball Position Playing the ball too far back in your stance causes you to make contact while the club is still swinging to the right of the target
Factors for Ball Position The position of the ball in your stance is determined by your swing shape and the club you are hitting. Your wedge should be near the center of your stance and your driver should be off your front heel.
Putting Duration The duration of the putt is how long it takes to go a certain distance, this is a skill that very few golfers ever work on and it is integral to learning how to control the speed of your putts
