one-plane vs. two-plane

11 posts in this topic

Can anyone tell me what exactly is the difference between having a one-plane swing vs. a two-plane swing, what are the benefits of either ?

Maybe some video's to support that ?

Is S&T; a two-plane swing per definition ?

Okay nice to know what to google for, but that is what I have been doing for about two weeks and I know both are fine......

I am currently at a two plane swing for sure, but why would I change to a one plane swing.

I am going through all kinds of problems last few months (this season) so changing a swing .... why not.

The fairy tales about a 30-50 yds gain ...... ?

No more slices ?

It is hard to imagine a 1 plane swing to be solving all problems ..... isn't it ?

My AimPoint instructor recommended PlaneTruth too. I did have a quick look at the website but if I can't find what I want within a short period of time my reaction is, "F*** 'em! If they don't want me to find information then I'll go elsewhere" so I never actually found out what it's all about and whether it's of any more benefit to me than my current regime of practice > play > practice > video > (repeat) on my S&T;(ish) swing.

yepp ..... for instance if you google for the benefits of one-plane golf swing, the about 10 first leads are websites you just donate $100 for a one year help ....... Yesssss Sure !!!!!

Besides that S@T is thinking at 10 moves the same time, while we all know thinking while swinging is the worst we can do...... I like some elements, best parts are weight forward and maintaining the flying wedge .......

one plane swing... at the top of the backswing, the shoulder and arms are on the same plane. with a two plane swing, they are not on the same plane.

So are all S&T; golfers at a one plane swing, or are there still about half using S&T; with a two plane swing.

As from what I have read sofar (google etc.) there are so many golfers thinking in one or two planes and like having a two plane backswing and a one plane downswing or vice versa, etc .....

It can not be so simple that one plane vs. two plane is seen by the position of the arms/shoulers only .....

There are plenty of golfers making a full shoulder turn, straight left arm backswing, sticking the club high (above schoulders), dropping the club at or just before the start of the downswing, are these at one plane, two plane or even multi plane...... ?

BESIDES that is the 30-50 yds gain in one plane a fairy tale (to sell methods, books and DVD's) or is there some truth in there.... ?

It depends on where they are in the process, whether they need or want to change their arm plane, and how tightly you define "one plane." Dustin Johnson worked with Mike Bennett and Andy Plummer for a few weeks a few years ago and they worked on his follow-through (his exits).

It is. That's the definition, so, it is.

It's fake. Both can hit the ball far.

Those golfers are two-plane guys.

as a veteran of both types of swings......I feel that the one plane swing (mine for last year) is easier to repeat because it is not as reliant on timing FOR ME.  I personally use the "slicefixer" one plane swing and can't say enough good things about it.  I didnt notice a huge difference in distance but what I did notice is much more consistency and control in the flight of the ball.  As a two plane swinger I had a pretty big bump and sling going on and when my timing was good I could really play well.  When my timing was off I could hit bad shots all over the place.  With a one plane swing/rotational......on my bad days I can still consistently strike the ball pretty well.  Good luck to you and there are awesome golfers that use both techniques.

    • GPS, WHY ?
      If knowing the distance isn't important to you, then why would you ever choose an 8 iron for a shot instead of a 7 iron? But, if all the courses you play have plenty of easy to locate distance markers, then you probably don't need to spend a fortune on a range finder.
    • GPS, WHY ?
      As of late I have played with a few people using some sort of GPS device, which in turn  made me envious, and I have therefore been looking on the internet with a view to buying one. Then I stopped and thought, WHAT DO I NEED IT FOR. Firstly, I am not a great golfer, and the length I can hit a ball with a club varies a lot based on how well I make contact. Secondly, what if it is windy, what if it is cold, what if it is wet, and finally, what if I am hitting a ball uphill or downhill. All a GPS would help me do is estimate what club I need on a dry day, with no wind, and on a flat plain. Of course, I and can take these factors into account, in which case I would be guessing again, and then I may as well not have one anyway. Like most people, I quite often hit over the green, or leave it short, but to be honest that has more to do with my golfing skills rather than the wrong club. All courses in the UK have distance markers, and to be honest you have to be pretty stupid not to be able to work things out from there.  Needless to say, some of you would have already spent a fortune on such a device, and will reply to this post telling me how wonderful they are. So, please go ahead and convince me !!
    • My irons keep breaking
      Graphite or steel shafts? Did the shaft actually break or did the head become loose and slip off? Where did the shaft break (if it actually broke)?  Where the shaft enters the club head?
    • Your worst golf bargain
      I have had many bargains, but alas a few mistakes have been made on the way. I needed a five wood, so I went on ebay. There was a Callaway Fti nearly new, in immaculate condition with head cover. There was less than a minute to go, and it was only £33. I didn't have time to do any research on the club, but guessed it was probably worth over £100. I quickly put in a bid of £35 and won it. Only then did I have time to read about what I had bought. I wanted an 18* club with a reg flex shaft, and bought the pro version, which was 14* with a stiff flex. I attempted to strike the ball 3 times with it, and never managed to get the it off of the ground. Fortunately I managed to sell it without a loss.  I then replaced with an older Callaway FT with the correct specification, but still couldn't use it. Again, I sold it at no loss. I ended up spending £2 on a Dunlop club from a bricabrac sale, and I strike the ball wonderfully with it
