Your swing type: one plane, two plane or stack and tilt?


Recommended Posts

I think my swing is probably a hybrid of one and two planes. However, my instructor just keeps it simple and does what he can with my limited skills to keep my swing on plane! :lol:

 

What about the rest of you? What type of swing fits you?

I don't really think in a particular way, i just swing. But on video, it's one plane and not S&T.

I'm not really a believer in the one plane vs. two plane swing theories. I think it will vary with a persons body type, athleticism and flexibility and getting hung up on one or two just messes people up. What's important is what a person does thru impact, as long as they get into a consistent good impact position it doesn't really matter what plane it's on.

One plane v Two plane is just whether or not you lift your arms off of your chest at the top of the backswing, not really much to do with height if your clubs are fit correctly.

One plane vs. Two plane makes me want to barf. We are all two plane. Even Moe and Hogan.

 

I'm a double shifter now who has flattened out my swing plane...more importantly my downswing plane quite a bit. I currently load the shaft pretty quickly, but will probably get into more of a lagging clubhead takeaway in the next few months. I have a random sweep release that will probably turn more into a snap release. I have pitch elbow and I'm working on a CP release.

Two plane most of the time but I've experimented with the others without the benefit of professional help.

 

If I feel I have too much sway in my swing of the day I might go S and T and see if it produces more solid hits.

 

At age 71 you have to find a way to get around the course despite your ailments. :lol:

Hum.. not sure, but what I do know is that S&T sucks. My friend went to S&T for a while and just blocked everything right. Lost a good 20 yards on his drives and just didn't play well. Went back to his former swing and has been playing great.

I lost interest in the S&T when I determined that their stock ball flight and window wasn't something I was interested in. Plus, there's not many S&T teachers so working on it by yourself can be problematic.

 

For some, the S&T pattern is perfect. For others they may be better off using just some of the components while they keep their original swing.

I'm a Jim Hardy one plane guy...and was lucky enough to get to have a one on one lesson with him. It's still a work in progress, but at least after trying a few years on my own I've now got some solid info to work from.

My swing has more planes than an airport. Works sometimes though. It has been described as "Ugly and Ineffective". Its what I got though.

Only thing that matters about a swing is that it's repetitive. As long as you make the same swing over and over, you can play with what ya got, LOL.

That's my brother's philosophy in a nutshell. I refer to his swing as "homebrew" because no teacher on earth would claim that they had anything to do with it. This is where I would say, "But it works for him" except that it doesn't, hahaha.

All that matters is impact because impact is objective.

 

The #1 issue with people and there golf swing is that they believe that getting the ball airborne is due to whether or not they 'look up' or 'keep their head down.' That is almost never the reason why they don't get the ball airborne.

 

But, they don't understand or believe that and that's why they continue to struggle because they are working on something that is not the problem. It's like having an issue with the transmission in your car, but your solution is always to make sure you have gas in the tank.

I'm a one plane guy also. My plane though is extremely flat right now and that isn't good. Time for some lessons to straighten myself out I suppose. :(

Not really. If your swing repeatedly sucks it still sucks. If it is a repeatable 5 yard draw, then you're all right.
