  24. 25. FINDING THE SLOT LEAD WITH YOUR LEGS ON THE DOWN SWING
  25. 26. SWING DOWN IN THE SLOT <ul><li>The change of direction is very natural </li></ul><ul><li>Start with the lower body and the club automatically falls into the slot. </li></ul><ul><li>The Slot Swing also preserves your X-Factor. </li></ul><ul><li>The right elbow moves under the right hand, similar to skimming a stone. </li></ul>
  26. 27. SLOT SWING DRILL Slide the right hand down Miss the board on the down swing
  27. 28. STACK & TILT ANDY PLUMMER AND MIKE BENNETT
  28. 29. STACK & TILT <ul><li>The body NEVER moves off the ball. Keeping weight on the front foot, is the simplest way to control where the club hits the ground. </li></ul><ul><li>Over the ball posture – ball position just forward of middle. </li></ul><ul><li>Weight 60/40 on front foot. </li></ul>
  29. 30. HALF WAY BACK <ul><li>Keep the spine over the ball… </li></ul><ul><li>In order to do this, the player must tilt to the left in the backswing. </li></ul><ul><li>Hands move inwards, not up and away. </li></ul><ul><li>Arms stay on the ribcage. </li></ul>
  30. 31. AT THE TOP OF BACKSWING <ul><li>Body stays centred. </li></ul><ul><li>The weight on the front foot has increased slightly. </li></ul><ul><li>The right leg straightens and left knee flexes forward. </li></ul><ul><li>Head stays in place, so the ball is centered in the players vision. </li></ul>
  31. 32. HALFWAY DOWN <ul><li>Entire body starts downswing together. </li></ul><ul><li>Priority is to get swing centres in front of ball. </li></ul><ul><li>The left leg straightens and the right leg flexes. </li></ul><ul><li>The move that releases the hips, is a springing up of the lower body. </li></ul>
  32. 33. IMPACT <ul><li>The upward thrust of the lower body releases the hips. </li></ul><ul><li>This shallows the swing. </li></ul><ul><li>There is no conscious hand or arm action. </li></ul><ul><li>The swing centers are in front of the ball. </li></ul>
  33. 34. STACK & TILT DRILLS <ul><li>Tilt to the left on the backswing </li></ul><ul><li>Stand up through impact </li></ul>
  34. 35. ONE PLANE SWING VS TWO PLANE SWING
  35. 36. QUICK REVIEW….. <ul><li>Left shoulder turns down </li></ul><ul><li>Right leg straightens </li></ul><ul><li>Hands move inside </li></ul><ul><li>Weight goes to front foot </li></ul><ul><li>Lower body springs up </li></ul>
  36. 37. ONE PLANE vs TWO PLANE SWING Jim Hardy
  37. 38. ONE PLANE & TWO PLANE ADDRESS <ul><li>One Plane golfer bends over quite a bit and plays out of a wide stance. </li></ul><ul><li>Two Plane golfer stands quite erect and plays out of a narrow stance. </li></ul>
  38. 39. <ul><li>One Plane golfer swings the arms around the body. </li></ul><ul><li>Similar to Stack and Tilt but without the weight shift to the left – it remains evenly distributed. </li></ul><ul><li>Two Plane golfer swings the arms up and down in front of the body. </li></ul>TOP OF BACKSWING
  39. 40. TOP OF BACKSWING Two Plane One Plane
  40. 41. One Plane Two Plane PRIOR TO IMPACT
