Finding Your Natural Golf Swing Plane

Duration: 1:51

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!

    Curing the putting yips:
    I had these bad; and I emphasize the word ‘had’ cuz bad dudes are gone. By focusing on a spot of grass that’s just ahead of my ball rather than the ball itself my stroke became smooth, confident, & steady. The focus spot must be along the putting pathway; the path my ball must roll to get to bottom of the cup. My last thought & quick look is the putting path & the feel for the putt at hand, then back to my spot. I call this “Putt the Path Technique”.
    Not only cured my yips, but also improved my stroke tremendously as my putter would always extend over the spot I was focusing on.
    Cheers, & I hope this can help anyone who has this horrid problem. ~dave 🐠
    Note: before the stroke of course, one must first determine the putting pathway by performing the necessary reading of the putt
