Video Golf Tip | One-Plane Finish

The finish position in a one- and two-plane golf swing is going to be very different. It is different because of the downswing move that you are making. If you remember in the two-plane golf swing where you are standing up more erect and sliding your hips forward and dropping your arms on the downswing, it sends your arms more out towards the target line. Because of that the finish tends to be a little higher, closer to your head and the shaft is traveling down your back. In a one-plane golf swing because you are turning through and your arms are throwing so hard to the left and you are swinging your arms back to the inside you are going to find that the finish is more rounded. My hands are farther from my head, the shaft is more near the top of my head and it is kind of on an angle, not down my back. See how easy it is for me to get to my left side. So the finish on a one-plane golf swing will tend to be more rounded. It looks a little more athletic. If you take a look at these two finish positions side by side you really get to see the differences in a one- and two-plane finish. The finish is a great report card of how you made your downswing. I think what you are also going to find is that the one-plane golf swing, as well as the finish, is a little easier on your back. There is a lot of arch that happens in your back as you are swinging your club up and often times when a person finishes their round their lower back is mighty sore. One more reason why a one-plane golf swing might be a better swing for you.
