I just read one of Sasho Mackenzie's articles regarding the swing plane. The article is rigorous science and very detailed, but one of the main points is that the research demonstrates that it is beneficial if the club head drops "below the plane" early in the downswing. In his method of modeling and simulating golf, this move is associated with greater club head speed and makes it easier to square the face. I am interested in knowing instructors' reactions to this. Does this research change anything you think about the golf swing? Thanks.

Hey guys, I was wondering what (if any) correlation there is between someone's height and their swing plane. I am the bottom 1% in height for grown adults and have a very flat golf swing. I went to one instructor who kept telling me to get it more upright, but after many hours of practice, still find it very challenging--it zaps all the power out of my swing as I can't really engage my lower body. I went to another instructor who told me that shorter golfers have flatter golf swings, which was music to my ears, but is this true? He used the example of Ricky Fowler being one of the shortest golfers on tour and also flat. However I was also wondering, I often see Matt Kuchar's swing as flat and he's very tall. I am not an expert so was hoping to get feedback from those who know better. My arms are generally slightly below the trail shoulder when I'm at the top of my backswing. I do know that once I stopped trying to get my swing upright and worked with my normal (flat) swing, I was hitting the ball as good or better than ever, and have never been able to get an upright swing to work for me. Thanks in advance for the feedback!
After 2 back surgeries I want to change over to a single plane swing. When it comes to shaft sellection, does anyone have advise on flighted shafts or standard shafts? Shaft length will be the same 4-7 & 1" shorter 8 - wedge. Gap and sand wedge will be standard lenght.
Hi - the day I joined here I found a post about contact and club face angle...the creator of the post used examples - Chuck hit closed faced and a woman whose name started with an "O" hit open face... Being a slow learner, I wanted to revisit that post and read again, but I can't find it...anyone remember where that can be found, or the author of it? Thanks..
