What has amazed me has been the ball flight, which is now so straight. My irons are also so high, as I have also had a high trajectory in my swing, but now they just soar through the air. I have also completely eliminated any chance of a slice, my only miss is a pull. The ball never goes right, except very occasionally off to the right in a straight push, but none of the slice ball flight, which is tremendous. I am consistently hitting the driver into the fairway, with significant distance around 280m+ and have never had to hit so many wedges into greens in my life!!! Which is a great thing or course and I hit about 200 balls today just focused on wedge shots.
My only issue with wedges is that I occasionally get them a little heavy and take a big divot. I will get some video shortly on that from grass.
I know you will get these types of emails from many people, please appreciate that you have made my life significantly more enjoyable and I am grateful to you for that. Rod K.
After watching the single plane swing video's I was already going to the driving range that day and decided to try your method. After hitting a few balls to warm up I noticed I was striking the ball better than I had in years and the distance I had lost which was about 3 clubs was back. I couldn't believe it. I started cranking the swing up a little and was striking the ball even better and gaining more distance. When I went to a full swing it was the same thing. I was amazed, to say the least. I subscribed to your site and have been watching the video's and practicing the drills. It has been raining here for the past 2 day's, so I haven't been able to take it to the course yet, but I am sure looking forward to my first round with the new swing. I used to win all the bets with my buddies. In fact, they all complained that I win all the time, but that went south, but I think I will be in the winner's circle again with the single plane swing. I am 77 years old.

Tuesday was golf at Highlands Meadow golf course in Windsor, Co. We started on the back nine and I used a recovery 3 wood off the tee and in the fairway. I hit some of the purist shots I've ever hit, including irons. Nice and straight and effortlessly. I liked the feeling of hitting into the ball and not my typical hitting behind the ball and then the ball. Only 50 years of bad swing mechanics to undo and outside/in swing (think banana slice). Putted and chipped good and shot a 41! Typically, I shoot 45 and above and lately have been more in the higher 40's/low 50's. Fellow golfers were impressed with the new swing. Shot a 48 on the front nine with not so good chipping and putting. Broke 90 for the first time I can remember. The 3 recovery club goes about 200 yards, plus or minus which is just fine for me.
Golf league was on Thursday at SouthRidge Golf Course in Fort Collins, CO. The ugly was I finished triple, double and double. Chipped badly and two putts and a three putt on those last holes. That said, I shot a 44. So only two over after six holes (par 35). I had an 11 handicap going into play. Again, 3 recovery club off the tee and swing held together, but got to over swinging just a bit on the back swing on the last couple of holes. Old habits started to try and get back into the swing. Otherwise another round of excellent shots with all clubs. Next is the three wood off the tee and the driver in a few weeks.
Thanks again for your videos and your effort to teach this swing. I now feel like I know what swing I'm bringing to the course. I'm motivated to keep doing the practice moves and improving. I like the "cutting grass video". It is enjoyable for the first time in many years to look forward to playing golf. I walked down the center of the fairway in these recent rounds probably more than I ever have in my golfing career.
Where were you when I needed you 50 years ago? O' you were likely only a toddler! Craig F.
I am 41 years old, born in Nova Scotia Canada and have been playing golf off and on since I was 12.
I was never very good and mostly shot in the mid to high 90s with a bad round being over 100. That went on for years. Occasionally I have a score in the 70s or low 80s but those were few and far between. What frustrated me most was my inconsistency to be able to hit the ball like I knew (thought) I could. On any given day I would lose the ability to hit the ball.
I started down the road to try and improve about 4 years ago. It started with Moe Norman but I couldn't figure it out simply by watching him swing. I did have a little success for a while but I didn't really understand what I was attempting to do. From there I discovered Mike Maves and Secret in the Dirt but still something was missing. I moved on to My Swing Evolution (Christo Garcia) on YouTube where I did learn some very helpful and interesting things. He has rebuilt his golf swing following Ben Hogan. But again inconsistency was an issue for me.
At the beginning of last summer after having 2 months of miserable golf I thought about Moe again. I knew that there was something to his action that felt right. That's when I found your videos and started implementing the one plane swing. After a short period of adjustment, I had 3 rounds in the 70's in a row with the third being my personal best 74. Then of course winter hit us in Canada and I felt like I was starting all over. I decided to join LearningGolf a few weeks ago and had my issues and questions answered in a few days of watching your videos.
Last weekend I shot a 77 on one of the toughest courses around including an even par 36 on the front 9. I made a dumb double on the 18th hole to shoot that score. I'd blame that mistake on bad decision making not a bad swing.
I send this email as a truly heart felt thank you for helping me find a swing that is repeatable and fun.
My deepest thanks and continued success. Eric Mc.
My distance has increased very well...I am hitting the longest drives ever. (even with a short backswing). My irons distances have completely changed. I now can hit like my partners, though they are much younger than I! I have played steadily for 52 years with a bad slice and no distance in my irons. And I have had to learn to scramble and putt well to break 90! I knew I was close to making a real breakthrough and yesterday, it came! I shot the lowest nine ever ..a 37 which is one over par. On the back I shot a forty with several missed putts which held me back. The 77 was my lowest round in history! I also hit every fairway and 11 greens in regulation. Only one double bogey! All due to adopting your minimalist golf swing!
Thank you so much! Your drills have been the key! PS.. you might analyze the hand move I am making and tell me why it has helped so much. Thanks again! Jess H. Jess H.
