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 www.planesight.com. 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.
