Learn the correct one-plane backswing.
Thanks! Share it with your friends!
I did the dinner plate drill while warming up at at my local golf club. It unfortunately slipped out of my hand on the back swing and hit an old lady in the face… I had to pay for her broken dentures and smashed glasses… Just a warning to all those taking dinner plates to the course.
Looks too closed to me. I’d pull the ball all day long…
This is confusing, as Moe Norman used what he called a one plane golf swing, this swing is not that swing, this is a two plane golf swing.
I can’t even tell you how much this video helped. Thanks for posting it.
Would you create some space between the right upperarm and you torso in the backswing?
I was confused when I first got a lesson for One Plane swing. But after sticking with it (1 year of work), I went from an 8 hdcp to a 1-2 hdcp. I very rarely miss fairways with my driver and my iron shots have a penetrating ball flight. For the non-believers between one and two plane, the big difference is with the one plane you initiate the downswing by uncoiling your torso because you are already on plane- with two plane you have to make that ‘leg drive’ move to get back down to the ball and on plane. It is simply a matter of preference and desire to go for consistency or power. I lost some distance with one plane, but my consistency is off the charts and I still play the ‘tips’ with the big boys. It was VERY hard to make the switch (because I was so used to driving my legs which really screws up the one plane downswing… but I am glad I did.
Best instruction I’ve seen yet. Very detailed which is what I needed. I feel this will help and I have not even tried it yet. This is just what I was looking for. I love it and I will follow this instructor. I love the way he teaches.
Best back swing I had ever heard. I was able to mimic it and re-built my swing with great confidence. Thanks much, Josh!
Great video!!! Really helped me understand!
Great video Josh. I can’t tell you how much this has simplified my swing. As being a baseball player all my life this has really helped me flatten out my club at the top of my swing. Which has led me to hitting the ball in the center of the face more consistently.
I’ve been looking for the plane the entire time and never saw one fly by???
Question to all golfers – I have been playing golf for 23 years and finally a 6 handicap, but still at this point cannot understand why we cannot swing the club on one plane take back and downswing? Why do we have to complicate the swing with one plane/two plane/etc????
At :34 Josh states keeping the club on it’s plane would create a short backswing, and you couldn’t hit the ball very far. Not so. I hit the ball much further swinging the club face square to it’s path and on it’s original plane…much further. It is true that the backswing will be shorter. My hands barely reach waist high at the top. But my nominal playing 8 iron (75-80%) is 150 yds, dead straight, and I’m 65 yrs. With extra energy and a center hit, my 8 iron goes 165-170. The beauty is the simplicity. I’ve learned with experience that lifting the arms in order to get the club high, and rotating the arms in order to keep the club on plane while lifting high, are both unnecessary and way over complicate the swing.
is this with driver fw clubs & irons too
What a load of crap. One plane, two plane. As long as you can consistently hit the ball where you want you are good. Look at Bobby Jones, Bruce Lietzke, Nancy Lopez, Sam Snead and many other great players, they never cared that their backswing.
