Anatomy of the Single Plane Golf Swing


Mark Sherer says:

I am over 65 and have used this method with very good results, just two comments….need to swing not hit at the ball, when you first go to this single plain your going to feel like hitting at the ball, cut back and work on a smooth swing letting ball get in the way, it will work……#2 release the hands like most swings, makes a big difference. again at first you feel like just hitting at he ball without releasing club….

miao yan says:

Is there anyone on tour using this kind of swing ?

Christopher Johnson says:


쵸파 JH says:

omg…. talks too much not swing so much….
i feel like im listien to a radio..

john craig says:

It's all left hand. The right hand is like a feather.

Alex Shaw says:

My thinking is…if you hit over a million balls practicing any motion, coupled with good hand eye coordination, you're gonna produce decent results. I don't buy into this being an easier way to swing. In theory, possibly..but like any other motion it is a little more complex than just working on one plane. Moe had exceptional leg action, as do all great champions..could this not have been his secret?

just lay of of him. he can do it how he wants you can do what you want, if you quit complaining then maybe you would have the time to find the golf swing that best fits you.

[F1]FIGHTER[AG] says:

btw do not put really name in accounts it is major confidentiality issue for all other accounts

Benjamin Jones says:

been on this since the natural golf vhs tapes, had to make a couple adjustments for myself, good ez swing for shootin in the 80s on the weekends, thats all im lookin for

Randsurfer says:

Todd.  Norm insisted repeatedly that his right hand did nothing, "just along for the ride".  He said all the power came from his left side.  You are saying the exact opposite.

Carlos Alcega says:

too simple info for a complicated explenation…

JJ Lee says:

if it is so simple why did he make it so complicated,I have no clue what he is talking about!

Alex Wong says:

Todd… I respect you as my teacher for SPS . I wish and I really want you to win at least one of senior PGA tour , by that way will be able to stop the question why no one using SPS win the PGA .

Bryson DeChambeau uses this and look at him. It works people, just have to adjust to it. Thanks Todd


If Richard Simmons tried to explain the single plane swing, it would sound about like this. Endless babble about nothing.

John Hofmann says:

Moe's swing was not on a single-plane. If anyone can prove otherwise, please let me know. Past analysis of his swing has proven that he's on two different planes.

Joe Bloggs says:

Looks like the club head is ahead of the hands at impact…. Recipe for thinning shots.

adri vreeke says:

Sorry Bud you do not reach en distance this kind of swing although you wil hit iT straight

Gary B. says:

Adri- I am 62 years old. Bad back, etc. Best I could EVER get with conventional swing was about 225- 235 yards. With this swing I am getting 250- 265 at will. Baby draw and fade upon request. My irons are easily 15-20 yards farther. Before you judge it, you should try it. Honestly, I didn't believe it either. It took me three months to get these results.

joe darby says:

Why don't u ever hit any on camera??

Frankie Santos says:

ive learned the moe swing for 2 years im now a master at hitting balls. shooting 2 under easy
