  • Quick Tip - Feeling the Lag

    When it comes to your swing mechanics, there are a lot of examples of cause and effect. In today's case, we discuss lag. To put it simply, lag is caused by your hands and arms hinging in your downswing, which results in the club head lagging behind, hence the name. Lag is visible, but it is very ...

  • Quikck Tip - Spatial Relationships

    One of the most important aspects of the Single Plane Swing is the space created from the golf ball. Proper mechanics and spacing will allow for consistent impact and straight trajectories. That being said, that spatial relationship must remain unchanged throughout the movements of the swing. Two...

  • Quick Tips - Plane the Chain

    When it comes to your Single Plane Swing, there are many different elements to keep in mind. Biomechanics, positions, setup, you know the drill.

  • Quick Tips - Different Heights

    Every round of golf you play will require all sorts of different shots to handle different scenarios.

  • Quick Tip - Pelvic Position

    Your address position, and how you establish your position at address, are critical. The Single Plane Swing is the most natural way to swing a golf club, and as such, both your address and backswing will mirror that statement. Finding that ideal side tilt and pelvic position at address will allow...

  • Quick Tip - Brace Then Turn

  • Quick Tips - Stay Within Yourself

    In today's edition of Single Plane Quick Tips, we talk about swinging within yourself during your full swing.

  • Quick Tips - Symbiotic Power

    A symbiotic relationship is defined by Merriam-Webster as being "a cooperative relationship as between two persons or groups."As we have extensively covered in our Power Generation Masterclass, the lower body and upper body work in tandem to generate power. Keeping that in mind, the name of this ...

  • Quick Tip - Stabilize for Speed

    Over the course of the past few Single Plane Quick Tips that have been hosted by Todd Graves, he has been talking about the body, and its relationship to power generation. Today, he delves into stability, and how a stable lower body helps your upper body generate more power. These topics have bee...

  • Quick Tip - Positions Matter

    In our last Single Plane Quick Tip hosted by Todd Graves, we covered the kinematic sequence, that of course being the interaction between power and how your body positions itself. Today, we continue the subject, now focusing purely on those positions, and just why they're so important. It can be ...

  • Quick Tip - Kinematic Positioning

    Lately, we've spent a lot of time discussing generating power in the body that translates to speed in your swing. Today, we delve deeper into the subject, as Todd Graves explains not just kinematic sequence, but how you can position your body throughout the swing to aid in generating more power, ...

  • Quick Tip - Trail Hand Motion

    In the Single Plane Swing, your grip and the dynamic motions of your hands are incredibly important. Today, Todd Graves explores the latter of these two. Moe always said he liked it "Sunny-side Up." This refers to the orientation of the trail hand, given some adjustments of the upper body and sho...

  • Quick Tip - Kinematic Sequence

    In the last quick tip, we covered some specifics in the kinematic sequence. Today, we run it back and cover the basics of what this is. In any rotational sport, this idea is critical to maximizing your acceleration. Join us as Todd Graves gives an introductory run down of this concept.

  • Quick Tip - Kinematic Acceleration

    The kinematic sequence is something that should be familiar to any rotational athlete, even if not familiar by name. Simply put, this is the process by which your body moves different parts at different speeds at different times to generate acceleration and power in the club. Today's quick tip is...

  • Quick Tip - Butt Back Drill

    It should come as no surprise to say that the back is arguably the most important structural part of the body. The same can be said about your Single Plane Swing.
