How To Hit A Hybrid Club
Today i have another great post and this one is How To Hit A Hybrid Club with the correct hybrid golf swing plane. We will look at few different world class players and see how they fair up with there swing plane. So lets get into is right now
A BIG part of the one plane golf swing is that the club returns back to the exact same place. What we are talking about here is the shaft plane line as you will see in the pictures. That exact swing plane is what Moe Norman and Ben Hogan did.
Lets have a look at some of the best golfers in the past 10 years and see how they fare up with there swing plane is concerned.
1. Tiger Woods
2. Adam Scott
3. Phil Mickelson
4. Rory McIlroy
5. Justin Rose
6. Henrik Stenson
7. Matt Kucher
8. Brandt Snedeker
9. Steve Stricker
10. Jason Duffner
Going from the results in the pictures 9 out of 10 best golfers in the world Do Not return there club face to the same plane line that they started with. Only one that does this is Steve Sticker.
Why did I Show You Those Golf Swing Planes?
Most of those plane lines should be a bit more vertical then a one plane swing and not quite as vertical as a two plane swing. I believe that if you want the best know How to hit a hybrid club correctly then it should be somewhere in the middle of the two. A perfect demo of this that i am going to show you is Louis Oosthuizen.
Now the biggest question is tho are they trying to swing like this. In short NO!
It has been proven that the golf swing is moving way to fast at the time of ball strike to alter it. So what is happening at impact is this.
The forces are so great at impact that the hands are being pulled up. That’s just a natural occurrence of the modern, powerful golf swing.
How good would it be to swing on the same similar plane as what happens at impact. You see you can talk about different swing planes all you like. The one plane vs two plane. How the backswing and shoulder plane is and the left arm angle etc etc. At the end of the day what really counts is what happens at the ball strike.
How To Swing A Hybrid Golf Club
My theory and research on how to hit a hybrid club goes like this. Swing back so that at the half-way point in your golf swing the club shaft points down at the ball. At the half-way point in the downswing the club shaft again is pointing at the ball. Check out the pictures below to see what i mean from a guy who i reckon has the best swing on the planet at this time.
Louis Oosthurizen was the 2010 Open Champion and has a gold swing that many say is the best among the best pro golfers out there. So lets put the swing plane theory to the test. You can see the line has been drawn through his setup at address right through the middle of his back.
You can clearly see he has a very good swing with a very consistent swing plane!
To measure if a person has a one plane swing or two plane swing is to measure the top of their swing and the angle of the left arm and shoulders. If there is less than 12 degrees difference then they have a one plane swing. Lets have a look at Louise’s swing and see what he’s is
Louis Oosthuizen – 22 Degrees Difference
Put side by side of say Moe Norman or Jim Furyk swings you can see the results are extremely different of a one plane swing and a two plane swing.
Moe Norman (One Plane Swinger) – 0 Degrees Difference
Jim Furyk (Two Plane Swinger) – 48 Degrees Difference
If you split the differences of the two planes you will get 24 degrees. Since Louise’s swing plane is 22 degrees therefore his swing is all most bang in the middle of the two planes.
The swing plane that Louise’s uses is most noteworthy as i think is the best swing Plane for hitting a hybrid golf club.
It really does not matter if you are hitting a driver or a hybrid it all still comes down to a consistent swing. Having a consistent golf swing plane will help you to hit straighter, longer and more consistent golf shots.
If you are lacking consistency in your ball striking then working on your swing making the plane more consistent will only help you in getting better and improving your scores.
