I don’t know if you have been keeping up with current events but for the past few years I have been developing a software that measures your body position, and motion, based on the exact positions and movements of the Single Plane swing.
It shouldn’t surprise you that the Single Plane swing foundation, starting at address, is one of the most important aspects of the proper motion. The address position is a “sum of it’s parts” whereby the Single Plane starting position, the foundation of the swing, is a summation of every part of the body including the legs, arms, pelvis, and toros. In other words, you can’t be in a true single plane without every part of the body in alignment. Here are some of the basics to the single plane swing.
This picture describes what I call the Metrics to the golf swing. Each “metric” is the exact measurement of the body part making it easy to model the Single Plane Positions.
One of the most important metrics of the Single Plane swing is the sideband of the upper body. The upper body sideband lowers the trial shoulder and rotates the trail arm slightly under – what Moe called “sunny side up”.
With the ideal sideband, the club can align with the trail arm making the lead arm visible.
Now you understand Moe’s address position and how he could set-up on the perfect single plane.
