Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Stopping the body is as important as Moving the body in the Single Plane Swing motion. Understanding the how the body stops and goes through the movement will help you maximize your hand speed.

What program/ software do you use to mark your positions

Dannis Lee says:

Being following your Single Plane. Trying to adopt. On your theory on what Stop make the swing go faster. A typical example can be the catapult. When the soldier cut the rope (as seen in movies) to release the catapult, the arm gain speed slowly and will come to a stop to release the 'rock' and the rock gain speed and flew a great distance before hitting enemy target.

Brian Carty says:

Another great video. You seem to cover a lot of information lacking in others. I do have a comment on the stopping of the right shoulder. From a dynamics perspective, it seems most likely that the motion of the left shoulder away from the ball is responsible for the acceleration of the club, allowing the wrist release. The stopping point seems most critical for consistent ball strike location heel to toe, and a flattening of the club head trajectory thru impact (IMO). If the club head continues to accelerate (tangentially/ball path direction) after the left shoulder becomes largely stationary, it would imply the right hand is active. Do you see tangential acceleration continuing after the left shoulder stops in the data you collected?

Why does your driver appear so short?

Denny Myers says:

Mr Graves, thanks for all your free help. That’s a big deal to me. I’m 62 and with your help I’m a born again golfer. I can hit the ball so much better. I could go on and on about this. The free part tells me a lot about how you truly want to help us. I really like Watching all your stuff but really like when you and Moe talk about the swing. Thanks for helping me and others. I’m still learning and hitting the ball better as I learn the process.

great lesson thank you

Chun Ming Ho says:

Same distance on my previous driver swing, but with this swing I always end up in the fairway or atleast on the 1st cut… A lot less error on my driver… Haven't got the right feel for the 3 wood & below, so I'm still stuck w/ my old swing… It's kinda single plane swing, but closer feet just like most of the pros…I'll practice it on range when I have a time… Thank you Sir Todd… A twice a week recreational golfer here in the Philippines… Played 81 yesterday, to be the champion on my small group… I'm usually 84 to 87…

ben says:

started swinging this way and was hitting it well, IM a former collegiate golfer, but started to have some back issues with the new swing? IM concerned this isn't the natural swing, rather its unnatural…

Ian D says:

Todd you’re awesome, thanks for the great content.

In the slow mo, it looks like your wrists touch as your hands cross over on release, is this always the case and is it intentional?

geoffrey liss says:

Do you analyze the student's core strength and flexibility was those effect their ability to swing correctly? Do you have exercises to improve any deficiencies?

Steve Simpson says:

I have just found Todd Graves teaching the Single Plan Swing. I hope I can introduce this swing for myself. I have been forever changing this or that to no noticable improvement to my golf. I'm now 63 yo and still a golf fanatic.

"Back and up, not around" is very helpful tip.
