Two-Plane Golf Swing
In the two-plane golf swing you stand very tall and upright, you are going to swing your arms straighter back and make that level shoulder turn. On the downswing you drop your arms, slide your hips, flip your hands, finish high. It is a golf swing that requires a lot of timing, there are a lot of good positions you can learn and do drills to get in to each time. There are a lot of wonderful players playing golf that way, but it is a swing that you have to do a lot of practicing with to own because often times those little pieces or parts can get a little bit off.
One-Plane Golf Swing
In the one-plane golf swing you are bending more from the hips, your arms are hanging down from your shoulders, you are swinging your arms more across your chest and then back across your chest on the follow-through. It is across, and across, and you stay bent over. The finish will be more rounded and you will feel very balanced over your left leg. It is a very easy golf swing to learn and to maintain because there are not so many moving parts.
Determine Which Golf Swing is Right for You
You have the choice, play golf your way, figure out which way works best for you, but think about your time and how much time you have to devote to owning your golf swing.
