Do you think you will need to make adjustments to the lie of the irons? Does the single plane swing impact that due to the higher hands?

More Norman was incredibly accurate with the single plane - looking forward to seeing your progress.

Definitely will have to go flatter a little.

Been watching a bunch of videos about him.

Too bad he came up when being different was looked down on.

Don’t like the commercialism of the Graves academy stuff, but Moe himself along with Kirk Junge are my inspirations for this “project”.

So far I can’t complain. I do think the short game will be the most difficult thing to get used to. I use a lot of handsy shots, but that bleeds into my full swing and that isn’t good.

This is super simple. I hit shot after shot today “dead straight” as Moe would have said. Pretty crazy considering how my last outing with Stud was, I was getting my fair share of short right in the rough.

That’s pretty awesome.


I was coming in OTT lately. I didn’t even try to get rid of that. Just extended backswing a little further, not much of a turn, then my slide works wonders by bringing it back on plane. If you snap shot my set up and impact you’ll see it looks almost identical.

I physically can’t turn my hips fast enough to make a 2 plane work with how fast I want to swing. This is the best thing I’ve done for my golf game. Hands down. Slows me down a bit, and it works for my decomposing back.

That makes sense. When I was just setting up to the ball as a point of reference - it was clear that I would need to change my lies as well.

I have always been fascinated with Moe. I appreciate his quirkyness and his ability to create a swing based on hitting millions of shots. The mental side of Moe is extraordinary as well and perhaps not as well known. Truly an interesting character that has absolutely been commercialized but he was special. I have watched a few clinics he had done and his way thinking and speaking was one-of-a-kind. Glad this is working for you. I can certainly appreciate the back issues and anything that lightens the load on the back is well worth it.

Its funny you mention the extension because on the video you posted above it looks like it’s got some Rahm with that wrist set on the downswing.

Haha.

Well anything is better than what I was doing.

Swung the clubs for about 3-4 hours total between the range and the yard. No back pain. Had I done that last week with the old swing I would be in need of a chiropractor, hot tub, and a bottle of Motrin.

Pretty interested in that documentary they are making.

Sort of off topic, but I’d like to see a Tom Watson film. Similar to the Seve Movie, but while he is still around and can have input. I think that would be a great story, especially since he is the epitome of what golf should be.

I honestly believe its easier to transition to single plane as we get older.  The naproxen and a tens unit obviously help but better body mechanics just makes sense.  Keep at it, lets see some more video later on as you hone it.

I would really like to see that too. What a player - what a swing! I felt so bad for Stewart Cink in 2009 Open Championship - the WHOLE world hated him winning and beating Tom. He played so beautifully and got such a bad break on the 72nd hole but that's golf. I would definitely enjoy a Tom movie.

Wish I would have stumbled on this as a kid. Most of the concepts make sense to me. The only downside is potential distance loss, but the mad scientist is showing us that doesn’t have to be the case. He is a bit upright from what I want to do, and that probably has something to do with it.

Just keep an eye on that early release.

Today was one of the greatest days of my life. It would take me a while to explain to you all, but I’ll just say it all makes sense now.

Just left the range... unbelievable ball striking.

After reading about, watching videos of, trying this single plane thing. Even looking at a “normal” swing on the range looks weird.... (what are you all doing to your poor backs?)

I could hear someone down the way talking about my swing, not every little detail, but hey look at that guy, that’s all wrong sort of stuff as he taught his buddy about how a tee should come out of the ground after you hit a drive.

I stood there and hit straight ball after straight ball.

So straight I actually said out loud for the first 5 or so... “dead straight”. Not even the slightest of curve in it. I mishit some, and even shanked a wedge shot but I knew it before I even hit that I was set up wrong, I couldn’t have picked that out with my old swing. Was hitting into 10-15mph wind that would have exacerbated my fade/slice just last week. Had zero effect on my side to side. Was carrying the mini driver around 240... beautiful!!

I’ve found it. It was a very spiritual day on and off the golf course.

Hopefully put this one plane thing to work this upcoming week for a practice round before our work outing.

“Playing in the morning with my boss,” and, “...before our work outing.” Jeez, you suck!!! I’d LOVE to have a job that involved golfing! Sheesh.

When I worked for Kraft foods in Charlotte, just out of college, my boss there would take us golfing on Friday mornings here-and-there. I wasn’t a fan of him, but a HUGE fan of that “leadership” style!

Since going down this fork in the road, I have listened to a one and a half hour podcast about Moe Norman. Ordered a book, and seriously considering joining the Graves Academy stuff.

All of this makes me wonder why I hadn’t done this earlier.
