Basically, he just used less moving parts in his golf swing. He eliminated so many that he could hit 1000 balls a day without much strain or without getting even remotely tired. It's almost like he was just standing there. The single plane idea is false for this reason:
Moe never said anything about a single plane. When I heard him speak, he said the reason he put his arms all the way out there was because he was much less likely to move his arms around too much. He gave an example of this in the videos that i will post in here. He showed his arms flailing in the close body position, then said "but out here I can't!"
Another example of less moving parts is his placing the club behind the ball about a foot with his irons and about 2 feet with his woods. He said this eliminated a foot of the swing, put his left shoulder already in his turn, and he couldn't take it outside. I'm not saying this to make anyone mad, but it's the truth.
Think about it. How would you hit a ball if you arms were flailing all around and your head moving side to side? You couldn't even hit the ball! Let's say you keep your head still instead and kept your arms like we do today. How much better chance would you have of hitting the ball better, more square, and just in general hitting it to begin with?
Think before you post. Insults will NOT be posted. Any flaming and I will quit posting replies. Same with trolling or bullying. You're allowed to disagree, but do not insult other's opinions, or say that someone else is an idiot for their ideas, etc. Be nice.
In conclusion, less moving parts equals a better strike, and though you lose distance, you're dead straight. This was his secret
Some extra info:
With less moving parts, you will also be able to control the distance of the shot better, and the direction.
Warning: you lose alot of distance. At least you're straight right?
