  • One-plane swing

    I want to develop a one plane swing but i do not get how to start the downswing i.e. the transition. I have heard to pull to left shoulder to the left and/or fire the right side but im getting confused.
    Can someone tell me how to preform the one plane downswing step by step.
    Thank you

    I prefer the Chuck Quinton rotary method. Simply turn your hips and shoulders back through. Turn back around your spine. Whether you pull the left shoulder through or push the right shoulder through is up to you.

      I guess you just let your hands do what they like them, just focus on the shoulder turn?

        i concentrate on turning my hips first on both the backswing and the downswing, this seems to cure the 'over the top shoulder lunge ' and i dont even think 'hands' or 'arms' .
        no idea if this correct, just seems to work consistently well, and my game is showing signs of improvement.
        give it a try if you like , just one swing thought , its a definate improvement on the 7 or 8 i used to have scrambling around inside my head!!

          Am I right in saying that the one-plane swing is now taken to mean more than just, well, a one-plane swing?

          The way I swing to the club is basically to retrace the backswing on the downswing in terms of plane. So, to me this is a one-plane swing. Seems, though, that others define a one-plane swing as being a flatter, around the body action.

            Chuck teaches passive arms. They still have to get into position (ie they're not floppy, but 'athletically relaxed') but you don't use them to hit at the ball with. They're just along for the ride.

              hi oldwease
              with the one plane swing the arms swing back on the same line as the shoulders, the left arm it more across the chest and from the side the arm looks on the same line as the shoulders but in a two plane swing the shoulders turn on one ark and the arms swing on another (higher than the shoulders), and the left arm is more between the right ear and the right shoulder and the club is lifted up on a higher plane than with the one plane swing.
              also with the one plane the golfer tends to lean over more and you see a two planer swinger is a lot more upright when he address the ball.
              both swings the back-swing and down swing are not the same as the right elbow folds into the hip more on the downswing and with both typed of swing the downswing is always more flatter than the back-swing, this is seen more in the player that shift there hips a little to the left on the downswing but you can do that with both types of swing.
