Trouble Swinging the Club on Plane?

A question comes in from a dewsweeper who says they are having a problem swinging the club on plane. Do I have any suggestions to help them fix their path at home.

First of all I think its critical that you find out the root cause of your plane issue. Find out why you are swinging the club off plane…is it your grip your posture or something else. But here are some suggestions for fixing your plane.

First and preferably I use a plane board on the lesson tee. However most golfers don’t have the room or ability to have one in their garage.
My next preference would be the flash light drill.
If you are having trouble swinging the club on the correct path try this at-home remedy.
First you will need:
Two mag lite flashlights
24 inch piece of PVC pipe
Bungee cord
Put one mag light in each end of the PVC pipe connected with the bungee cord. Now you are ready to fix your path!
Find yourself a seam in your driveway or garage or you can use the seam where your carpet meets your baseboard inside.
Turn on both mag lights.
Make rehearsal back swings very slow, tracing the line with the bottom mag light. When the club gets to waist high and hinges you should have the butt end of the flashlight now pointing at the line you were tracing.
Repeat this over and over and no matter what path flaw you have, you will be on the way to a better swing plane!

I also suggest the perfect connexxion training device. Connecting your arms to your pivot will help insure that the club swings up and down the correct path. The perfect connexxion is one of the best tools I’ve found and I use almost every day in my teaching.

You can always find the perfect connexxion in the dewsweepers store
So if you are struggling with your swing plane whether it be too much from the inside or over the top try these and get the club more on plane and get the ball struck more solidly and started online
