When we’re talking about plane in the golf swing,
really what we’re talking about is the overall
movement of the sweet spot in a horizontal or incline plane.
One of the key parts to being on plane
is to understand sequence.
So we’ve all been told, maybe at one point or another,
that we need to take a one-piece takeaway,
the thing I see with that feel in amateurs
is that when you take a one-piece takeaway,
they turn really early and now the club gets inside
their hands and their arms only lift to one point.
So now, the sweet spot planes way across the line,
causing too many adjustments on the down-swing.
What I would advise you to do is understand that
the club-head has to move the longest distance,
the arms move the second longest distance,
the torso the third, and the hips the fourth,
so get the club moving in a vertical and a horizontal
manner with the hinge, see how far you can move,
with the hinge before everything moves.
So you go, hinge, arms, torso, hips.
If you do that, you’ll sequence your plane,
and you’ll hit better shots.
