one-plane vs. two-plane

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

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 ?

I suggest you do the following searches on Google. Some of them will lead you back to this site. 

 

Benefits of one plane swing

Benefits of two plane swing

One plane swing definition

Two plane swing definition

one plane v two plane swing

 

The information is already out there, no need to get someone to type up an essay for you a1_smile.gif

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.
