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.

      Ive recently gone from a belly to a 34" putter. Really liked the the belly putter but struggled with distance control. after practicing with the short putter i seem to have more control. Will be keeping the belly though for when i get a older or the back starts to protest!

      No problem.  I'm not tired of responding to sincere and thoughtful posts, like yours, even if it rehashes stuff from before because OF COURSE it is unrealistic to expect people to read 3000 posts before commenting.  In any case I have that quote in a file and it was simple to post it - much simpler and politer than saying "go find it , it's here."  I DO think that one should maybe at least read a smattering of such a big thread before jumping in,   But I have no patience whatsoever with the "I saw Jack play" and "he was nice at a clinic" type posts or posts by people who try to claim some special credibility because of some entirely personal subjective connection.  But that isn't you. As to the rest, you asked for the exact quote and I gave it to you.  If you want to argue with what he said, that is another matter and does not concern me, since my position is that even if we, arguendo, say that the field strengths did NOT get better, Tiger's career was so much more dominant than Jack's that it doesn't matter.  I don't NEED to make a stronger field argument to make the case that Tiger dominated golf in a way and to an extent that no other golfer has ever dominated golf.  And he did it for 15 years (after an absolutely unprecedented career as an amateur) which, IMO, is long enough that it no longevity argument could overcome the sheer dominance advantage his career embodied.   The fact that all that is true in the face of field strength increasing is just icing on the cake.   
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      Excellent. Thank you for re-posting that quote. Sorry to hear you're tired of rehashing. Why not just let the thread die then? Is the expectation that folks will read all 272 pages before making a comment? That strikes me as an unrealistic expectation.. I agree the tour is tougher than it used to be. I consider the differences more incremental than astronomical...not the 'order of magnitude' range that seems to come through in some comments. I think Jack is both being accurate in assessing his perception of a shift in quality, but also exaggerating for effect or experiencing present-day myopia at the very least about the money. $100 in 1962 money would be ~ $800 dollars today. Not exactly what I would call bus fare. The 'paltry' $100,000 had the buying power of about $800,000 in today's dollars, which is ~ 60% of today's average purse and ~ 30% of the Players' purse).. Most Americans would happily take an annual salary like that today. They weren't getting ditch digger wages. The prize money even then definitely attracted keen competitive interest. Clearly purses have also grown more than inflation and even journeyman make more in a year than the top 10 in 1962 (below), but it seems about in line with the growth of the population of golfers in the U.S. itself - about triple since Jack's day, Endorsement money has definitely gotten bigger, as the tour and the golf marketplace have developed and expanded over time.   Rank       Player                  1962 $                   2015 $ 1            Arnold Palmer        $81,448                 $639,223 2            Gene Littler           $66,201                 $519,562 3            Jack Nicklaus         $61,869                 $485,563 4            Billy Casper            $61,842                 $485,351 5            Bob Goalby            $46,241                 $362,910 6            Gary Player            $45,838                 $359,748 7            Doug Sanders        $43,340                 $340,143 8            Dave Ragan          $37,327                 $292,951 9            Bobby Nichols       $34,312                 $269,288 10          Phil Rodgers          $32,182                 $252,572
