Moe Norman swing in 3D – The Science of Simple – Volume 1

I don’t know if you have been keeping up with current events, but for the past few years I have been developing software that measures your body position, and motion, based on the exact locations 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 critical aspects of the proper motion. The address position is a “sum of its parts” whereby the Single Plane is starting the job, the foundation of the swing, is a summation of every part of the body including the legs, arms, pelvis, and torso. In other words, you can’t be in an actual 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 critical metrics of the Single Plane swing is the sideband of the upper body. The upper body sideband lowers the trial shoulder and rotates the trailing arm slightly under – what Moe called “sunny side up.”

With the ideal sideband, the club can align with the trailing arm making the first arm visible.

Now you understand Moe’s address position and how he could set-up on the perfect single plane.
