The device in the picture to the is a swing plane teacher. You rest the swing club
against the surface and learn to swing the club in a circle. The "PLANE" or angle that you swing the club on
of the swing is a mirror image on the backswing then on the follow through.
Three great views of the impact position. The lower

All that really matters is what your ball is doing. If it is getting of the ground and going
more or less where you want it to go you are doing a pretty good job. What we are trying to do here in a short
time is give you some tips and imagery that you can hopefully copy or learn to repeat in you own swing. The
hardest thing to do is to swing the golf club only with your hands or arms. Your golf swing should be a total
body experience with a simple turn of the shoulders and torso away from the ball for a backswing and through and
past the ball in the downswing a nd follow through to get the ball moving.
Most people swing the golf club with varying degrees of efficiency. If you can learn to move
your body a certain way, and get into a key swing positions along the way, you have a pretty tood chance of
hitting a good shot. It is not all that complicated. Learn to controol the clubhead, and understand that what
the face of the club does at impact has the most influence on what the ball does in its flight. If you can learn
to make consistent impact and get the ball in the air you have accomplished a great deal.
Swing the golf club and just let the ball get in the way. Let nature take its course as far as
your swing. Try to find and feel the path of least resistence where the golf club feels the lightest and where
you body feels the most comfortable and without any unwanted tensions.
