According to PGA Professional Mike Adams, every golfer’s backswing follows one of three planes. Whichever works for you should feel natural and fluid, and you shouldn’t try to change yours to another unless you discover you’ve been following the wrong line all along. That’s because when you align your backswing with the correct golf swing plane for your specific body and swing type, you give yourself the best shot at consistently solid contact and increased power.
So in this lesson, Mike and fellow PGA Professional Joseph Hallett demonstrate a quick exercise you can utilize to determine which of the three standard swing planes is your most natural. They walk you through the simple drill, and teach you a couple golf swing tips you can implement to really understand the process. For instance, Mike explains that whenever the club head is swung naturally, it falls in line with the appropriate golf swing plane for your body. You’ll find that if you practice Mike’s exercise and take advantage of our other free golf tips, you’ll start making better contact with the ball, hitting it farther and lowering your score!
