One plane golf swing method

Updated on July 5, 2011

It is really exciting to watch people play golf but learning to play the game is a little difficult than we want it to be. It takes an amount of time for practice and precision to be able to really play. But thanks to the latest discovery and creation of Moe Norman, a renounce golfer known for his fabulous ball strikes, who made one plane golf swing popular nowadays. One plane golf swing has a single axis that helps one out in terms of swing and ball striking. It delivers power, consistency and correctness in ones swings and facilitate the golfer attain that best strike.

One plane golf swing

Many have wondered as to what is that core difference between the one plane golf swing as oppose to that of a conventional swing. First and foremost, there is definitely a distinction in the way the golfer makes his stance and positions his hands as he takes his strike. With the conventional golf swing, the golfer places his hands and arms straight below the shoulders which will produce an angle between the arms and the so-called clubshaft. A narrow stance is necessary to place the arm on a different line to that of the clubshaft. The dominant hand is positioned at the higher part of the club and the hands are at the rear of the clubhead. With the one plane golf swing however, the golfer’s hands are positioned fronting the clubhead. This will create a straight line which the inventor, Moe Norman, called a ‘rod’. The golfer positions the club horizontal to that where he intends to make an impact. In other words, the club and the impact plane will be on the same plane and it stays there. With this scheme, it simplifies the whole golf swing concept and an upshot will be a solid and successful ballstriking.

Secondly, there is a difference on the backswing. The conventional swing requires the golfer to pivot the wrist to return the club back on the plane. The golfer must also lean slightly forward to enable him to balance out and maneuver the backswing. This does not hold true to that of one plane golf swing. There will be no misalignment of spine necessary because as previously mentioned; the arm and shoulder will be positioned in a straight line from the minute one attempts to hit the ball up until the ball strike is made.

Thirdly, there will be no need to bring the clubshaft high back as the golfer intends to make a forceful impact. The dominant elbow will not be needed to drop down to the ground to return the club back on the plane. With one plane golf swing, after the golfer makes an impact, the golfer will notice that the arms and elbows will still be on that same plane and resumed back to a position where the golfer will still be able to carry and generate sufficient power to hit another ball.

The impact of both conventional and one plane golf swing are basically alike. The only important aspect that is worth putting an emphasis on is the fact that with the use of one plane golf swing, minimal movement is only needed to make that same ball impact with that of the conventional golf swing.

Whether you prefer to use this one plane golf swing or the conventional one, it doesn’t matter at all. As long you make a sound choice and use the one that is comfortable and allows you to enjoy learning the game to the fullest.
