“I am unable to swing my driver in a two-plane style, do not seem to have room for it. (Feels awkward) Consequently, I hit irons with two-plane and driver and long fairway woods with single-plane style. Any comments or advice? Am 69 years-old and a 15 index.”
This was posted on a golf message board and my head exploded like the guy in the cult classic movie “Scanners.”
While it seems like I am laughing at the expense of this poor lost soul. I am not. I wanted to fly to his location and help him.
As you all know, this kind of stuff drives me nuts. The golf instruction industry and golf media has sold this methodology to the public. Golf is not alone. Fad diets are just one example of how we are drawn to the miracle and/or quick fix.
Who would you rather play for money, assuming equal skill level.
1. “I try to create space for my hands and arms by having a good setup and getting everything working together.”
2. “I restrict my hip turn making it easier for a one plane takeaway, then I delay the release of accumulators 3 and 4 creating a stable release and hitting a CP draw.”
Yea, me too.
If it doesn’t hurt, feels free and the ball flies straight…do that.
