Becoming Par | The Right Plane


Today my lesson with Doug is refining the take back, and examining the right swing plane.  I’ve always been flat in my upswing and to prove it, Doug installed a laser pointer on the end of my club.  He mentioned that it’s from  Nifty tool for $100, they even have one for your putter.   One thing I did notice using this device is that when you are swinging – the first half of your swing your club face should face the “line sight” from the ball to the target.  What I mean by that you have to mentally draw a line from the target and pass the ball which I will call the line sight.  When you get to position 2 (see 1:25 of the video) your club should be parallel, and when you are at position 3, see 3:16), your club should be targeted onto the swing plane.   As you can tell, I still have lots to work on.  This will ultimately make me play worst at the beginning, but fixing the fundamentals I believe will help me achieve higher results in the end.

Anyhow, enjoy the lesson video – I’m off to InnerGolf for some practicing.
