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.
