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.

    • Clearly what happened is that he spent 4-5 hours learning Tiger's balls and it adversely affected him playing with his own balls 
    • 2 weeks ago... I would have said an 'out of nowhere' slice off the tee.  I'd be hitting shots into the fairway (or just off the fairway), and suddenly, I'd hit a 50 yard slice that ends up in somebody's cereal bowl in a kitchen.  

      Currently... a wild hook from the tee.  It started recently and I can't figure it out... at all.  Luckily it hasn't seemed to hurt me too badly (yet), but... it makes it tough because my typical shot shape (for years) has been a fade, so... I prefer to aim at the left side of the fairway.  Now, with this hook, I feel like I can't aim at the left side because it could put me in trouble... so I aim up the right and, when I hit a straight shot, it's a big push.  

      ... shrug ...

    • Definitely... DEFINITELY don't be the creepy 'cart girl is hot' guy.  It gets awkward in a hurry.  In 2004, I was playing with a club that played all around the area I was living in.  I was 25 at the time and, by far, one of the younger guys in the club.  I often got paired with the guys that were mid 40's and would make completely inappropriate comments about the cart girls.  Seeing as how many of the girls were in my age range, it was always very awkward to hear what they were saying and, truthfully, I never respected anybody who made comments like that.  

      Beyond that... I enjoy playing with people who have personalities.  I enjoy conversation beyond the typical pleasantries.  If I'm going to be on the course with you for 4+ hours... I'd expect to know something about you by the end of the round and vice-versa.  

      If you're willing to trade barbs back and forth (golf related or otherwise) and laugh about them... you're my kinda guy and I can see us playing together more in the future.  Being a big sports fan... I love playing with people who can talk trash AND take it without getting hurt feelings.  There's nothing worse than getting paired with someone who makes a comment about my Giants ball marker or my Mets hat, starts talking trash... and then says they're a Lions fan or something, but gets bent out of shape when I talk trash back.

    • Thanks you.  So many people on this site misread, or completely miss the true point of a response.  Shooting29 is another perfect example. I've been in a couple of 5-hour rounds the past few seasons.  I don't go to those courses anymore.  My normal rounds on weekends with my guys all happen at 4 hours or a bit shorter. My point was exactly as you read.  No sense in trying to get ahead of the group in front only to wait on the next group and have the group of you passed waiting on you.  Sometimes there is simply no way to escape slow play other than exiting the course. dave
