PostSubject: How to Fix your Swing Plane/Path   Thu Sep 03, 2009 1:04 pm

Most golfers take the club away too far inside which results in a very flat swing plane. This leads to an over the top downswing which results in sliced shots or pulls to the left. To fix this problem it is as simple as changing your set up. If your knees are too bent, your spine will be too upright causing your arms to move away too flat and inside. Try straightening your legs a little and getting your body more over the ball at set up



The club can not travel back on the correct path



This will now get the club going back more on the correct plane, reducing the need to come over the top on the downswing



Most golfers who spend most of the day sitting at a desk will tend to have the knees too bent and straightening the legs will feel a little uncomfortable. Try some stretching of the hamstrings to make this easier and fix your swing plane

Amazing the change just by changing set up. Are there other factors that can cause a flat swing plane?

There are other factors definitely. Usually related to fundamentals such as grip, turning direction, swing radius, arm direction. Most of the time these can be corrected by getting the start right so that the club can then move the correct way. The legs being too bent is a very common one I see a lot with new students. They try to fix their plane by manipulating the club with their wrists or arms, rather than just looking for the cause of the problem and then changing that. Majority of swing faults are related to the lower half of the body

Very true! You can see how the sole of the club is much squarely at set up in the improved posture than the first one, which the the club sitting more at the heel. That is also a contributing factor right RSC?

Well spotted jurongtiger. Yes a change in set up will have an effect on the fitting of the club. This is why the fitting charts used by companies such as Ping may not always be correct for all golfers. Set up correctly and then get fitted to your correct set up is my advise. If your clubs are not correct, you may set up to suit the club rather than vice versa.

Hi Paul, does this mean the opposite occurs as well (standing too upright)?
The down swing felt stuck and resulted in the ball that travels to the right (push fade or just push) - which does not occur or cured when the right leg is put one step back.
