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.

Bunker Sand Displacement The key to a bunker shot is to eject the sand from the bunker and have the ball go with the sand
Putt-Chip Shot Using a chipping club with a putting set up will pop the ball up slightly and allow it to land and roll softly which is perfect for when you are chipping down slope and need to kill the speed of your chip
Deep Bunkers Do not make tough bunker shots harder than they already are, when faced with a deep bunker with high lips play your stance and clubface square and let the loft of the sand wedge pop the ball up or just play the ball to a lower part of the bunker lip
