Video Golf Tip | Arm Motion In Swing

Swinging the golf club on-plate is really important, as I mentioned, 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 ours, Jim Hardy, a teacher from Houston, Texas, talks about this as a two-plane golf swing. It's one in which you are actually swinging the club straight or back and you're rotating the club on-plane. It's a manipulation. Your arms are actually swinging above your shoulders, and you're working the shaft constantly). Or, you can swing the golf club a little bit more athletically, in which the golf club would go on plane naturally. That's called a 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's a lower-maintainance golf swing. When you're swinging it athletically your arms are going back across your chest, much like sports you've probably already played - maybe softball, maybe tennis. So we're gonna talk a lot about the one-plane golf swing for women and how it can make you a better player.

Fat Shots: Causes and Cures Fat shots are caused by either too steep a plane (slicers) or to shallow an swing (hookers)
One-Plane Downswing The one plane downswing you want to turn your core as you are throwing your arms across your body. This creates tremendous power at impact and without the timing required in the two plane downswing.
