How to Fix Swing Plane & Path

If you want to truly, once and for all, fix your golf swing plane and path, you must heed my advice in this video. This is the ONLY way to permanently and correctly fix your swing plane!

TRUE Fundamentals of the Golf Swing

Hey Craig, When I do this drill with the club (and I am looking at either video or in a mirror) at the top of my swing my hands are outside of my right shoulder line (perhaps a better description is "flat"?). Most of Chuck's videos show his lead arm somewhere between his neck and right shoulder. What is he doing that I am not doing to get his hands/arm on this plane? When I try do this by "lifting" my left arm on the back swing it feels a bit forced/not connected. Perhaps that is because I have been doing it "wrong" forever? I do have a 90 degree turn of the shoulders so I'm not stopping short and then doing the rest with my arms. Thank you for your advice.

Hello William. The lead arm has to come up and rotate. It sounds like you are pushing the arm slightly across the chest. Take a look at How to Keep the Left Arm Straight Video. It does need to work up and rotate. At first without the trail arm it will tend to feel heavy. Once, the trail arm is there for support it will feel more natural. But, you need to work on the arm going up and rotating. Not pushing.

Hey Craig. Question about the plane using these screenshots from today. It's obviously under plane at certain points but it finds the plane well before impact. I'll clean it up with some more wrist set I suppose but is this still considered inside to out and a push or hook waiting to happen?

Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Dean. Slightly under plane. Not that much, but maybe a baby push draw. A little bit of Trace the Plane Line Video would help. However, I would wait to see what happens with a real ball before too much tweaking.

Dean
Thanks and copy that. Probably after next week once it is more repeatable and then it's review time and see if anything break down. Everything else is looking tidy. They are all slightly different. The shaft has to trace above the plane after parallel to get it to sit on it because my weight shift shallows the club. Sound about right?

Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Dean. After you shift and lose elevation the club will be pretty much on the elbow plane line until impact.

in the downswing when the club is parallel to the ground, what line should I see looking DTL. Should the club be in line with the toe / target line? In other videos, I see the club line appearing to be about 4 inches above the toe line.

At the top of the backswing, will the line parallel with the shoulders (the line perpendicular with the axis tilt / spine) point to the ball?

Hello James. If I am gathering your question properly. The shoulder plane would be a little steep in that scenario. Take a look at Golf Backswing Shoulder Plane Video.

From the top of the backswing, as I weight shift forward my hands feel as though they are dropping directly vertically down to about the height of my belt. It feels as though my hands are being held a little behind myself as they drop vertically while I weight shift. Is this correct or is that “vertical” drop too vertical?
February 27, 2018

Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Erik. The pitch of the club shouldn't work vertical. But, it may feel like the hands drop down vertically.

Hi Chris, I remember seeing somewhere a comment (I think it was from you) that the move that initiates the downswing is the external rotation of the left knee toward the squat position. I have noticed this move in a lot of the all time greats, Snead, Jack, Byron Nelson, Bobby Jones, and Arnie to name a few. Those players often rotate their hips farther back than is recommended in RST, (and even straighten the right leg to facilitate this very large backswing rotation) so it stands to reason that they would require something more exagerated than a primary move of "sitting into the left side" (which all too easily can turn into a "slide"). I can also see how it might improve sequencing to start the downswing from a lower portion of the body (where the knee rotates, the hip must follow). Is this clear?
February 21, 2018
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Robert. Yes, I definitely don't recommend the over rotation going back and straightening the trail leg. However, the first move will be external rotation of the lead knee. Take a look at Fixing Your Weight Transfer.

Robert
Egggscelent! I used to pitch so I can relate to the kinetic chain involved here although, the golf version of external knee/internal hip rotation is much more subtle in RST and actual golf than in pitching or long drive stuff where every shot is a T shot and they don't have to play their misses. Thanks for the video reference.

My single handed downswing shots with left hand only - compression angles are great; shot is straight with a little draw; problem: distance is now the same as both hands....now when I use both hands - disaster. I realised a big reason is that naturally the right shoulder will want to turn - that lifts the right shoulders too much and I hook. Shoulder plane is a disaster. Some people dip the right shoulder too low at impact, some the right shoulders will become too level (not because left shoulder is low and moving down drill, it’s because the right shoulder is standing up) the one handed downswing is great because the plane coming down is perfect because right shoulder is not used at all. Now two handed - my hand is holding the club. Even if I try not to use my right shoulder with all effort (trust me I have) - the shoulder muscle will be triggered and then become elevated. So my right hand drops on plane with a good downcock but then right shoulder is activated. So then My right shoulders are becoming too upright. Whats the best drill to solve this? Actually a lot of people have the same problem...great weight shift, downcock, but shoulders then become upright and everything is lost...how to solve?

Hello GC. Apologize for the late reply. If you reply to your own question the system believes it to be answered. The best option is to edit orginal post, or create a new one. Take a look at the Sledgehammer Drill. You must still be over dominating the lead with the trail.

GC
Even if I use zero effort in my right shoulder...zero...It will be activated because the right hand is holding the club and that is moving. One handed drill - this is fine. It ignores the problem rather than addresses it per se...it’s definitely effective...I understand the plane...at the end of the day, I still need to use both hands for more control.

Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello GC. The trail hand is the speed and the lead is the control. This is the tough issue when adding back the trail hand. Even with it barely on it wants to do something. You need to start out extremely small and slow to help remove the issue. Do 9 to 3 versions of the Step 5 - Add the Trailing Arm. All aspects of the video and gradually make it longer when you are able too.

This is so true. Im turning 54 this month, and I still out-distance both my 20-something year old sons-in-law with every club. Seems they "don't have time" to fix their swings properly, don't mind buying a dozen of the cheapest golf balls every time we go play 18, but can't bring themselves to take a tiny portion of their time to learn these basics. I'm just going to keep taking their money. Thanks Chuck.

So I've been told by other instructors in the past that there are two separate things happening in the swing-the arms swing up and down and the body shifts and rotates back and forward and that you have to sync these two different things as best you can. I feel when I do this it is my best chance to let the arms drop down initially. Because when I combine shift and body rotation and initial passive arms with later pull of the left arm in the downswing I tend to come over the top with too much rotation and not enough downward momentum with the fall of the club as it doesn't get a chance to fall. Other people say to pause at the top of the swing which I presume is designed to allow the arms to drop, postpone body rotation and allow the weight shift. My question therefore is should I continue to concentrate on body movements at the start of the downswing and allow it to simultaneously move the club and arms in the right plane or should I think of it as two separate actions(arms swing up and down) or allow a pause in order to start the downswing and remain on plane?

Chris (Certified RST Instructor)
Hey Niall -- Assuming your backswing is in a good position and you have loaded the backswing up correctly, then you should focus on using your properly to pull everything in the upper body down into the hitting area. Check out the "You hit the ball with you legs" video for more info.

I agree with everything Chuck says, however, making the changes he is talking about is not easy. He makes is sound a lot easier than it is for us average Joe's. I have been trying to do this for 2 years, with unlimited reviews, and the old habits are not easy to break. Not saying I haven't improved on my swing mechanics, I have, but I also put about 4 hours a day on this and I'm a 5 handicap. This is the reason why golfers haven't improved, even with great instruction, and lots of hours a day, change requires a lot of patience and time. Progress is brutally slow. I know he doesn't want to say this because he is trying to sell his product but this is the truth based on my experience..

Skate City of
Tom - as a golfer that is similar in ability to you I would concur with you. I have not been able to spend 4 hours a day like you are....more like 30 minutes most days. So the very slow improvement I can attest somewhat to the little free time I have. I've been at it for 5 years or so and have went from about a 6 handicap to my lifetime low of a 2 handicap this Summer. So I have cut my handicap by 2/3 which is like a 30 handicapper going to a 10. I do think the better you are the harder it is to keep improving. Maybe that's not true....not sure. Keep at it though...sometimes I plateau for a while then find little breakthroughs. The reviews and guidance on the website have certainly helped me stay on track with my swing.

I've gone from a 3 to a 5 ouch. Some of that is thinking of the swing mechanics vs just playing. I know I shouldn't do that but... also getting older now 67---fighting that. Thanks for the encouragement!

Chris (Certified RST Instructor)
Tom, you have come a long way with your golf swing and I have video for proof. Your hard work has not gone unrewarded. You have positioned yourself now to become more consistent and now it's a matter of getting all of the moving parts to the course and using your scoring abilities to lower your handicap to what it was before and go even lower. You also need to allow your putting to help you when the swing isn't producing what it should be. I do recall a recent review stating 35 putts on average for the last 5 rounds. Cut that down to 31 or better and eureka...you are trending lower than where you started. 2 years is a lot of work but it's only a small fraction of time in the grand scheme of your playing history.

OK I was a little hard on myself. As you know I hit the ball well and I had 28 putts in a one day Sr tournament in WV. I shot one under, won by 3 strokes against the best over 60 yrs golfers in the state. This was a real confidence builder, RST is hard but i can do it.

Great video! I have a question about dropping into the slot. with my irons, wedges, hybrids it seems I don't need to work as hard to drop into the slot compared to my driver I could basically come down from the top of my swing with weight shift and it seems to work fine. For the driver It seems i need to allow my hands to fall more in the downswing and exaggerate the feeling of the club coming more from the inside, is this right or should the feeling be the same for every club?
April 18, 2017
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Steve. The driver being the longest club in the bag gives the golfer a sensation they have to rush harder/faster from the top for speed and for it to reach the ball. It is one swing for all shots. But, for trail side dominant players they sometimes have to feel a little exaggeration of shallow and slower time to not get steep into the ball.

steven
Okay thank you! I've noticed i have to exaggerate the feeling of allowing my hands to drop and the feeling of coming from the inside more in the downswing with my driver, because if i don't I get a push fade, this seems to help getting that feeling though with the driver, thanks.

Hi I really like this video. I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask but I couldn't find where to ask. I just bought a mat for indoor practice and I'd like to paint or tape an image of swing path and ball position on the mat for more instant feedback. My question is where the correct markings should go that would agree with RST. And what from that image could help me get feedback for impact, such as where the club makes contact with the mat. Thanks
March 13, 2017
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Chris. I would be worried about you having too much of a guide on the mat. We wouldn't want you steering the path into the ball versus allowing the proper technique to handle it. The club does work on an arc if that gives you an idea. Impact should be just after the ball. The bottom of the swing arc will be your lead shoulder joint.
March 14, 2017
64x64
Chris
Thanks Craig. So if I paint an image of the ball on the mat, would it be optimal for the club to make contact directly after the diameter of the ball or some distance past? And my shoulder joint should have a direct line through the hip/knee/ankle that I created with proper weight shift and post up with the club lagging behind a bit with lean headed downward. Is this correct? Thanks
March 14, 2017
64x64
Craig (Certified RST Instructor)
Hello Chris. No matter what you swing, the bottom of the swing arc (and divot) is always below the lead shoulder. Take a look at Proper Ball Position Video. Yes, stacked on the lead side (ankle, knee, hip, shoulder) with a little lean lagging behind at impact. With the divot or line starting just past the diameter of the ball.

Great video. Currently, I'm really struggling with keeping my downswing on plane. My problem is getting to the ball too far from the inside, which is making my golf game really inconsistent especially with longer clubs, being the driver a nightmare (hitting it all ways except straight!). I'm a 7 handicap but I've realised that I have terrible fundamental flaws and my scores are only saved by a pretty sharp short game. Any tips to avoid going under the plane would be awesome. Thanks

Thanks, both great videos. I've realised that being under the plane is the worst kind of swing fault when trying to score because you end up getting huge blocks or snap hooks the day your "timing" is not correct. Would you say that trying to hit fades could also help with the feeling of getting the club more on plane?
March 6, 2017

Hello Antonio. Feeling or working at hitting fades may help with getting more on plane. But, I don't think it would be the ultimate fix if you are really under plane.

Brilliant chuck - ha ha, did you get lots of 'feedback' on the comments you made? Some could be interpreted as very negative towards the TV program you reference (which I havent seen by the way). I would love to be able to hit 1000 balls a day at the point im at now with my RST coach Steven... My body is only just starting to get the idea of the rotary swing method and I play off 7, so I thought I knew which end of the club to hold and abit about the game but steven and Rotary method mean every day is a school day. Im re-educating 10 years of bad golfing technique from being taught the way you reference in the video. Keep up the good work!! And a mention to Steven (Maes) who has been great since we joined up a couple of months ago...

So many golf instructors try to fix their golf student's swing planes by making them try to manipulate the movements of the golf club with the arms and hands. This always leads to disastrous results and a massive loss of power.

The modern golf swing is driven by the core and trunk of the body and all movement emanates from there. Unfortunately for the amateur golfer, they tend to do the exact opposite. They tend to swing the golf club solely with their arms and hands and never learn how to use their body correctly.

In order to fix your golf swing plane and path, you must learn to start your golf swing movements from the center out, then the arms and club follow on a proper plane without you having to try to swing them on plane. That's the beauty of RST - things that you've struggled with your entire life in your golf swing are not only easier to fix, but they're fixed much more quickly by simply focusing on the smaller, simpler movements of the body and not the arms.

Golf swing plane and path seem to be two of the most discussed topics you ever hear on television. As soon as the teleprompter gets up there, the first thing they want to do is start drawing all these lines on the screen about, "Oh, the swing plane is this, and the swing plane is that."

But what is swing plane, really? And why is it so important, or is it even important? If you remember my golf swing fundamentals video when I defined what a swing fundamental really is, I told you swing plane actually isn't a fundamental of the swing. By its very definition, it can't be, because it's happening in the periphery. And it's a complete result, inconsequential of how you move your body.

Is swing plane even important? Yes, it's absolutely one of the most important things in the golf swing. It's just not a fundamental. How can it be that important but yet not be a fundamental of the swing? That seems like I'm contradicting myself. Not at all.

Swing plane is extremely important, but how you fix swing plane is the key. What I mean by that is, most people look at a swing plane, and say, "Oh well, this golfer's swinging over the top, so what we're going to do is tell him to start taking the club and feel like you drop it from the inside and swing way out to first place or right field." How many times have you heard that one? It never fixes the problem. That's why you're here looking at another golf instruction video. Just telling you it has swing out here and starts coming from the inside, if that was that easy to fix, you wouldn't need an instructor. You'd just do it on your own.

The reason that type of information never works is because it's not fixing the fundamental problem of why you're swinging over the top or why you're coming too far from the inside. All of that stuff stems from the fundamentals, what's happening here. How you set up to the ball will determine swing plane and path. Your spine angle will determine swing plane and path. Your force of movement, if you're moving from the wrong side of the body at the wrong time in the swing, will change your swing plane and path. Notice that I said all of these things. I didn't walk once about the club.

The club and the path and plane that it's traveling on is nothing more than a result of how you move your body and in what sequence you move your body. If you don't shift your weight in the downswing, you have nothing else to move the club from here to here, other than your arms, and hands, and shoulders. What you're going to do, if you don't move your lower body first, is you're going to move your upper body. Guess what that's going to do to the club? It's going to change the plane and path that this club is traveling on.

It's where you fix the problem that makes your golf swing work or not work, and that's the biggest problem with golf instruction. Most golf instruction focuses on the symptoms. The symptom is your swing plane sucks. You're swinging over the top, or you're away from the inside, or whatever it may be. Okay, I get that. But how I fix it, instead of trying to fix the golf club, the path and plane that it's traveling on, I'm going to fix what's causing the club to move on an improper plane and path. That's the difference between rotary swing and every other swing methodology. We fix the cancer. We fix the cause, not the symptoms. We are not a symptomatic tip-based approach to the swing. Those things simply don't work.

How do you fix swing plane and path? As I mentioned, it's all about fixing sequencing and doing all these other fundamental things, which honestly makes things a lot easier. Rather than chasing this club that's traveling in this big arc around your body at great speed and going to places you can't see it in the backswing. And you can't see it coming down. Instead of focusing on those things, all you have to do is focus on these tiny little movements. For one, one of the biggest things that we see all the time, for people who swing over the top, and they tend to reverse pivot going back, and so it makes the club tend to get really steep going back and down, is axis tilted setup. Look at the setup videos. You must have axis tilted setup.

When you go back, and if you have a swing plane that's going way inside like this ... How many of you guys know this move? This one's really frustrating. Guess what you did to move the club? The club didn't make itself go over there. It's not just behaving badly. It doesn't care. It's only going to go where you tell it to go. The only reason it does this is you've done too much with your arms, and hands, and shoulders, or you've swung really flat with your shoulders.

All you need to do, again, go back to the RST 5 Step System. You need to focus on creating correct rotation. Now I don't have to worry about my swing plane and path, because it's automatically going to be fixed, because I rotated correctly. I rotate correctly to get my arms to play nicely with that. My hands are being transported and moved by my body. Now if I put a club in my hands, and I focus on that same movement, the club still goes exactly where I want it to. But I never once worried about the club, nor did I try and position the club, or fix swing plane and path by fixing the golf club.

How many of you watched The Haney Project out there? That was one of my favorite, or perhaps least favorite, things on television to ever watch. Hank Haney took a bunch of golf students on the Golf Channel, and for eight months, they hit 1,000 balls a day, and did tons and tons of drills. Yet at the end of this eight months of pounding gazillions of golf balls, none of them really got any better. I don't know about you, but that would be infuriating to me to spend that kind of time, and effort, and energy in trying to get better at golf and then actually ended up being in the exact same spot I started.

The reason is, in my opinion, is all he did was focus on the symptomatic approach to the swing. All Haney will care about, and he'll tell you this, and he's written about this, which is why I feel comfortable saying this, is that all he cares about is the swing plane and path. I don't argue that swing plane and path is extremely important. It's one of the first things we fix. I do argue about how you fix it.

If you watch Haney's approach, he grabbed the club, and he said, "Do this," and loops it around. He grabs the club, the student's club, and picks it up outside, and then tries to get them to feel this. Yet none of them can do that. It's because their body isn't moving correctly. You can't just tell somebody to pick the club up and to loop this. This doesn't feel right. It doesn't feel powerful, doesn't feel in sequence, because it's not.

I would take that same person and say, "Okay, we're going to get you set up correctly and get you turning correctly." Now all of a sudden, look where your hands are. The club's on plane and traveling on the correct path. Now what I'm going to tell you to do is the stuff we focused on the backswing. Now I'm going to tell you all to do is 5 Step System. What do you do first from here? Shift your weight. Look at that. My swing, the club drops straight down on plane. Instead, Haney would tell you, loop it in with your arms and try and do this. It doesn't work. Of course, it doesn't work.

You focus on the fundamentals, and swing plane and swing path will fix themselves. It seems like a cop-out. "Oh, tell me how to get my path zeroed out. Tell me how to get my swing plane perfect so I can hit a perfect little draw." I just did. Focus on the 5 Step System, focus on how your body moves. Make sure the fundamentals of alignment, setup, rotation, weight shift, all of those things are correct. And I guarantee you, your club will travel on the correct path and plane every single time.

 

How do I find the right swing plane?

 

Your golf swing plane happens in the PERIPHERY of the swing, it's DEPENDENT on how you move your muscles and is CONSEQUENTIAL of dozens of other movements and is SECONDARY to the order in which you move your bones at their respective joints. How you set up to the ball will determine swing plane and path. Your spine angle will determine swing plane and path. Your force of movement, if you're moving from the wrong side of the body at the wrong time in the swing, will change your swing plane and path. The club and the path and plane that it's traveling on is nothing more than a result of how you move your body and in what sequence you move your body.

 

How do you fix a golf swing plane?

 

The modern golf swing is driven by the core and trunk of the body and all movement emanates from there. Unfortunately for the amateur golfer, they tend to do the exact opposite. They tend to swing the golf club solely with their arms and hands and never learn how to use their body correctly.
