There is plane 1 and plane 2 swing. Plane 2 is the one that is mostly used by everyone, but now the professionals changed it to plane 1 because it's better. In plane 2 you only use your arms and when you do then you barely get any power to hit the ball. What do you think is stronger, pushing a box with only your arms or with your whole body power? The body power is a lot stronger. So what I'm saying is that plane 1 NEVER worries about arms. You have to pretend you don't have arms and all you do is rotate your hips back and forth. I'm 13 years old and I have been doing this swing since I was 8 even though I started playing golf when i was five. This swing is fantastic. It is completely round like a forty five degree circle and it all ends up right on the ball. There isn't a correct golf swing; both are correct but plane 1 is so easy to do and so powerful. If you do plane 2 then you will have to many things in your mind that will mess you. Plane 2 is all about timing, you have to have the PERFECT swing just so you can hit a good shot. You will get too many things going on in you mind. Jim Hardy invented the First plane and now every professionals is doing plane 1, even Tiger Woods and Lorena Ochoa. Do plane 1 swing and you will see that it is the best swing you will ever do in your life. So to do it just PRETEND you arms are cut off and that you can only use your hips and chest. Just rotate it back and forth. Your probably thinking that this swing wont work because it's round and since the face of the club is going in a circle you will either slice it or hook it. THAT HAPPENS WITH THE PLANE 2 SWING. Why do you think some people with plane 2 swing aren't improving. It's pure luck that they hit the ball. So on Plane 1 swing, since the shoulders are attached to your chest and your arms are attached to you shoulders then it will all go with the flow on your swing. The best type of exercise for plane 1 swing is a workout on the abs. Pumping iron is not so important but keeps the swing balanced. It wouldn't be right if you had tight, muscled abs and one of the most sluggishly looking arms ever right? It's really hard to find a coach that does 1 plane, (most coaches I have talked to doesn't even know what that is?!... and most coaches didn't even know there is two swings and which one they are teaching now. It's quite an enormous challenge to find one, it's like a needle in a haystack.) I know a famous golf coach in Texas and there is this guy that lives in Florida. He flys about two to four times a year just to have a one hour class with ONE OF THE BEST 1 plane teachers. (sorry, I wouldn't like to say the name cause people will have a few questions which I wont want to answer on who and where she lives.)

But seriously, just rotate your body through like crazy and people will look at you as if you a pro, (just like they look at me!) I shoot right now low eighties from the whites and WoW I'm so close to seventies,(YAY) I think that's pretty good for someone my age and with a good golf swing, it's not perfect yet, it's still improving (handicap 10). My goal is to get to the LPGA with this golf swing. I WILL GET THERE BEFORE EIGHTEEN YEARS OLD WITH PLANE 1 SWING!

Sit back, Relax, and Enjoy the Tour! (Golf Tour!)
