Hiya Guys,

Some of you know that im coming back to the one plane swing, to get my focus back and to make myself commited to this change.

Been doing it for 2 weeks and its going real well, got my focus back I know where I stand and my mind isnt messed up about the golf swing anymore

So anyway, seeing as im coming from a real two plane swing which never gave me consistentcy I do find it hard to trust myself to feel im swinging so flat. Like today I videod my swing and it felt so so flat and around my body but still my arms where TINT WEENY bit above my shoulder plane 

So, The best drill for me is a towell or headcover under the left armpit. WOW I love it, it gets my arms perfectly onplane with my shoulders. Ball striking is awesome with this drill and it gets me on a perfect swing plane.

Who thinks this is the bestest one plane swing drill there is?

I really think it is, it keeps my arms on the shoulder plane, it keeps the club right on plane. It makes my BS stop just before parrelel which i like and it keeps my left wrist flat and everything square.

 PERFECT????

Everyone will have a drill that just makes everything click!!  So I guess you found yours.  If you ever go into a slump you know what drill will get you back on track.

Keep up the hard work!!

It's a good drill for me too, Rick, although I prefer a golf glove to a headcover

i used to do this when i was younger, maybe this is why my swing was always on generally one plane?

i dont own the dvd (yet) so i dont know all the ins and outs of a one plane swing.

i still do this drill but i find that i can keep the headcover there with a 2plane swing so it doesn't hit home to me when i've swing on one plane.

is this why a glove is better?

Yeah the smaller the object under the arm is obviously going to make your left arm closer to the shoulder plane. I usually get a tea towell fold it twice and stick it under.

For me to swing one plane I have to feel as if im swinging like miguel angel jimenez lol who swing mighty flat and around.

I'm with you there, Swing.  I use a golf glove.  It's a great drill for two things.  One, it gets your left arm on plane at the top, and, two, it helps you feel how torso rotation drives the left arm down and through impact.  We used to talk about "flinging the left arm off the chest"  by rotating the shoulders to the left from the top.  It hasn't been mentioned in a while, but that is the move you want.  The inside swings the outside. 

Another good drill for getting that feeling is to make baseball swings at chest level with your wedge.  Start with the arms behind your right shoulder and your left arm across your chest.  Rotate the chest aggressively to the left with passive arms.  Feel the chest rotation drive the arms around the circle.  Let your hands release centripetally, and make the swish sound happen in front of you.  I make several of these swings after stretching and before I hit balls on the range.  then I try to keep that feeling as I warm up to play.
