One of the most common questions we get from those new to the Single Plane Swing of Moe Norman is why the club head is set back from the ball at address. Most have never seen this before, and find it perplexing initially. From our study of Moe over the ...
The Flexibility & Exercises DVD shows the ideals of mobility and flexibility in each area of the body, however, our experience shows us that a majority of our students have physical issues of some kind that limit their mobility and flexibility. This bein...
At Position 4, the butt end of the grip will point to the pivot point, which is just above the lead hip and across from the belly button. In addition, the club shaft will re-align with the lead arm. This ensures the hands are leading the correct amount. ...
We define the Single Plane swing as a swing that starts the club shaft on the same plane it will be on at impact. In addition, when viewing the golfer from the down the target line perspective, the clubshaft will align with the trailing forearm, and inter...
Studies in our industry suggest that over 70% of golfers over the age of 50 experience back pain during or after playing. From our standpoint, this is entirely due to faulty swing technique, and more to the point, due to ineffective, and biomechanically...
There are several videos floating around YouTube and other sites where Moe claimed to place the club in the lifeline of the trailing hand. There are even videos and pictures of him demonstrating this. The thing you have to keep in mind when viewing thes...
At address, the club HEAD should be under the nose for every club in the bag, save the putter. The ball position will be 5 inches inside the lead heel for all wedges, irons, and hybrid shots. For fairway woods, the ball position will be 3-5 inches insi...

From your description of hitting the ball fat, thin, or topping it off the ground, the main issue you are having is that your hands are not leading the club head into impact. This is occurring with the driver(and all other clubs), but since the ball is on...

From your description, it sounds like your upper body is going before your lower body, which results in a swing path that is "over the top" and produces a pushed shot. **Disclaimer**- Without being able to see your swing using a program like our Coachin...
Moe said in several videos that he wouldn't recommend anyone copy him. Why, we do not know. As we've continued to teach and study the Single Plane swing of Moe Norman, one thing has become abundantly clear. The simple answer to is Biomechanics. As we ha...
The club face should be square both when it is behind the ball and under the nose, and at impact as well. While this doesn't make good common sense, when you study how the forward movement of the hips in the downswing, the Pivot Point that you referenc...
Hello, There is a secondary tilt of the spine away from the target, the number we look for is 20 degrees. This would put the weight back over the trail leg, however, the hips tilt forward towards the target to counter balance the upper body tilt away fr...
Hello, You should always be looking at the ball throughout the swing. Not really focused on something specific, just in the area of the ball.
Thank you for the email. The club head will enter into the impact area from under the plane line simply due to club design. Since the shaft is inserted into one end of the club, the club head must approach the ball from inside the target line to strike ...
