Outstanding instructions, easy to understand.

Xman says:

I'm curious, is the parallel shaft the same distance from the plane of the target line at the low point and the high point?

Brian says:

Video has nothing to do with fixing swing plane

John Miskelly says:

Great video and very informative

Brian B says:

Added a broom to my bag, my score dropped 10 strokes. Amazing.

Chester Micek says:

Here's the plane truth: any weekend golfer who lets his right elbow stray from his body will be unpredictably inaccurate. In fact, any weekend golfer who doesn't have his right elbow "pretty much glued" to the back of his right hip at impact will spend Saturday & Sunday walking in the woods. For absolute proof, study the Tiger Woods video until you appreciate where his right elbow goes. Admit that it scythes down down to a point opposite his right hip by the time his club shaft is parallel to the ground. If your right elbow isn't there when his is, you are a duffer. Only mulligan men fail to use their hips, shoulders, arms and elbows to get that right elbow opposite the right hip as the primary, kinesthetic goal of their downswing. If you fail to do that, you're a golfing "Forrest Gump".
As a weekend golfer, my first goal is to get my hips and shoulders turning so that I achieve the "Hogan/Woods Position" when my club shaft is parallel to the ground. Next, I train to insure that my hips and my right elbow stay connected like that through contact with the ball. That's Hogan's secret. It got him 64 PGA Tour victories, and it would have brought him 100 if he weren't injured.
The weekend golfer must totally forget having a grapefruit sized gap in his armpit at the top of his backswing. That's only for professional athletes. Get that "crackpot thought" out of your head forever. Instead, go to YouTube's "My Swing Evolution" and watch Christo Garcia "stay connected" like Hogan. Additionally, watch videos of Hogan do exactly what I just advised. Simply put, the Jack Nicklaus "flying right elbow" swing is manageable for a world class, pro golfer who practices or competes 300 times per year, however, it is the dumbest thing a weekend golfer can ever do. Get to the "Woods/Hogan Position" when your club shaft is parallel to the ground with your wrists still cocked, and you'll play much closer to your potential.
In fact, I would advise any weekend golfer who wants to be more consistent to belt-strap his right arm to his torso when he practices at the driving range. I'm confident he will play better golf if he does. The casual golfer bring a spare trousers' belt to the range, and wrap it around his chest and right arm and learn to hit golf balls that way. Maybe even get a pro tro help him. In every case, he should go easy with it, but if he keeps at it, he'll end up hitting it like more like Woods and Hogan.
In summary, at impact the weekend golfer should have turned his hips, shoulders, and arms such that his right elbow is opposite his right, his left arm should be straight, his right arm should be bent, his left wrist should be flat, and his right wrist should be bent back on itself: (hitch hiker & waiter with tray). Moreover, his right upper arm should be touching his right pec of very close to touching his right pec. The absolute worst thing a weekend golfer can do is to be able to fit any of the following fruits under his right armpit at the top of his backswing: watermelon, grapefruit, orange, or a banana. Moreover, no vegetables such as potatoes, heads of lettuce, or tomatoes should be able to fit in the armpit gap at the top of the backswing.
The cardinal rule for the right armpit in my brilliant, weekend golfer's system is that only a pair of brand new, women's size 8, pink, silk, bikini panties should fit in the armpit gap at the top of the backswing. The panties must be kept in their place, under the armpit, from setup until after the golf ball has been struck. Finally, wash those panties after each practice session and keep that right elbow close to your body until after you hit the ball.

Robert Bernard says:

I think that is Brant Snedecker in the background and obviously not impressed with Tiger.

Scott Petermann says:

This is a good video but what about the driver? I can hit my irons flush all day long and hit down on them with great lag, BUT I cannot hit a driver worth a damn and snap hook it, hit it low, sometimes sky it but all over the place,,,its very frustrating. I think it needs to be even lower right with driver…..more of a sweeping motion and not a straight down Compression type swing??

vince King says:

Hmm . A bit different to your natural golf swing and hammer thing.

James Adcock says:

I think he was sick of seeing how good tiger was. interesting tiger hitting a short iron with ball forward in the stance. His hands are level with ball on impact not in front

Rhys Fletcher says:

I recently had a Trackman session and found out my swing path is 10 degrees in to out, so I hit big hooks or pushes. Is there any drills where I can get feedback? Because a 0 degree and 10 degree swing feel the same. Thanks!

out side says:

That player looking away looks like steve stricker,probably wants to play his own game and not get caught up in tigers game

Joe Smith says:

Want to see the ultimate positions of a textbook powerful pro golfer, look at 1:50 to 2:05. Those positions are likely unattainable to any amateur (and even most pros). It's almost unreal. 100 degree shoulder turn, right elbow tucked through impact, bowed left wrist through impact, and cupped right wrist well after impact. Physically impossible for most human beings… but I guess that's why he is (or was) who he is. I've been trying for decades lol.

Mac Attack says:

One of the best and easiest to understand lessons I have ever seen on the internet. Not everyone has the athletic ability to pull this off but along with the video on the hips, this gives the average guy the ability to understand how the big boys do it. Very impressive!

Tim C. says:

Damn,, I've been brooming with absolutely no lag! I've been cleaning the wrong way all of these years!

시캘럭 says:

Thanks. This was my only missing link in golf.

Jeffrey Fones says:

Height lacking

Mark Hovland says:

I heard once that fellow pros sometimes don't watch their playing partners for fear of seeing a swing thought that may distract their own game.

scott johnson says:

Funny comment on the guy staring off in the Tiger clip… But after watching again he seems to be a likely candidate as fellow pro in the group, no ?

Cool Video – thank you !

Nikolaos Tourlas says:

Your videos are a tremendous help to my game! Thanks so much Adam!

Jim Lacy says:

Is it ok to take back the club slightly outside an return it across the ball on the inside at impact?


Great content and similar to your other videos easy to understand and apply

Shengli Wang says:

Is that important to keep your left arm to be straight at top of your backswing? If so, how do I keep my arm straight?

Raymond Thompson says:

Steve Stricker is the guy not watching Tiger.
