Hi everyone I am new to this forum and this is my first comment.
After struggling for consistency for 10 years (hc 12 to 15 now) I have been really impressed by the Jim Hardy 1 plane swing. After studying the DVD i tried it yesterday and find it quite amazing.
I also think its the cure for tennis elbow (brought on by golf) on my left.
I hit solid irons and even some long drives.
Its a weird but wonderful action!
My question is what happens inside 100 yards?
How do you pitch or play sand shots with this swing.
Does Jim discuss this in his book?
Sorry i did not realize the bit i wrote last night went thru- the connection was so bad.
Once you get the correct backswing you basically smack the ball with you upper body/chest. Your hands are behind bcos the left arm is still across your chest. When your chest faces left of target is when the club impacts the ball.
I found my hands were just in it for the ride but they did follow the sequence he takes great pains to describe.
You do all that with the spine centred. It really works.
I actually did try pitching.
Yes works too but was wondering if there are any specific tips.
