MANY people will be aware of Ben Hogan’s classic “pane of glass” golf swing plane image.
On the printed page it is not always easy to see exactly what he is saying and misunderstandings can arise.
The following four and a half minute video uses more modern means to simply explain and demonstrate how to keep the golf club on plane from setup to impact and how common mistakes happen.
The video uses an innovative, physical, free standing pane set up behind the golfer and added graphics to simply demonstrate and make clear its concepts.
You find many such videos and clips on places like YouTube and elsewhere but the helpful props here and plain talk I thought make this well worth a look.
The instructor is John Jordon of the PGA Venezuela – EduGolf Foundation (the wonders of the internet) who says if you are able to keep the correct club angle throughout the swing you are well on the way to making solid, consistent golf shots.
The video itself is from a site called MaxYourGame – with which ASG has no association – but which we visited and seems harmless enough.
