Overview

"Jim Hardy is the most knowledgeable teacher in golf. No other instructor has his understanding of golf swing techniques and what makes them work. Any golfer, regardless of ability, who has the opportunity to listen and work with Jim will benefit and improve."


--Peter Jacobsen, Champions Tour player and winner of seven PGA Tour championships





Voted one of "America's 50 Greatest Teachers" by Golf Digest and ranked among the "Top 100 Teachers" list by Golf magazine, Jim Hardy has been fixing the swings of professional and amateur golfers since 1977. In The Plane Truth for Golfers, he makes his groundbreaking concepts available to you for the first time.



Hardy's earth-shattering philosophy is quite simple: Everything you've learned about swing fundamentals is wrong. There are two sets of fundamentals to the swing, not one. There is the one-plane swing, for more athletic players, and the two-plane swing, suitable for players of all abilities. Every player falls neatly into one of these two categories and one of them is guaranteed to work for you.



In this easy-to-follow handbook, complete with dozens of instructional photographs, Hardy breaks down the two methods into simple steps you're sure to learn in no time. Once you get a grip on Hardy's plan, you'll be able to:





  • Determine whether you're a one-plane or two-plane swinger and how to avoid the dangerous mixture of having elements of both in your swing

  • Step into the proper starting position for both swings

  • Understand the real truth about the backswing

  • Master a whole new technique for the downswing and defeat the competition

  • PLUS: You'll also get plenty of exercises and drills to help you perfect the proper on-plane movements and correct common faults





Like no other how-to book, The Plane Truth for Golfers exposes the flaws of current golf instruction and reveals the secret to playing good golf.

    Absolute must read - then decide for yourself

    I have played golf for almost fifty years and by the size of my golf library, I must have bought over three golf books a year. If I had to pick three to take out the door with me, I'd pick Hogan's 'Modern Fundamentals', John Jacobs' 'Practical Golf' and this book. Hogan would go with me because it was the 'bible' for me for years and described how I tried, with some success, to hit the ball. 'Practical Golf' gets in because it explains what makes the ball go the way it does. And 'The Plane Truth for Golfers' comes along because it explains why my swing is the way it is now -loss of flexibilty- and why my swing has moved from an 'around' swing to an 'up and down' one. I do think that the book's format is difficult to get a grip on at first, but once I started reading only one swing-type at a time, it cleared up quickly. I also thought at first that four 'drills' were not going to be enough to help me, but they have been plenty to keep me busy. Final argument for buying the book... four strokes lost in three months and handicap continues to drop (12 to 8)

    Great Book

    Intituitively I've known that there is no 'One Size Fits All' golf swing for everybody. Jim Hardy does a great job of breaking down the fundamentals of both the two-plane swing, often referred to the as the 'Classic Swing' and the one-plane swing also known as the 'Modern Swing'. After reading this book a golfer should have a good ideal which set of fundamentals are best for them. It will also protects you from golf instructors who sometimes mix and match swing fundamentals.

    Absolute Nonsense

    What a complicated mess. The classic golf swing is a backhanding action, but one that must be done in a certain way. It is important to find the swing plane that works best for you, but that means very upright or very flat or somewhere in between. To learn how to swing a golf club, I recommend a very simple book called 'The Golf Swing And Its Master Key Explained' by Noel Thomas.

    Firing Up the Plane

    This is exactly what I have been talking about. As a youngster, my teacher had me doing a turn turn move, and it worked. Later, he moved to Arizona, and I couldn't reach him for help. As I grew, my golf game got worse and worse. Everyone I went to for help thought I was crazy because I wanted to focus on the turn. Finally, after seeing Mr. Hardy on the Golf Channel, I realized that I must attempt to recapture the turn, turn sensation. Well, I worked, and I now hit the ball over three hundred yards regularly. The swing is again effortless, and golf is fun and pain free. This book only cemented the things I already knew. If you find something that really works in golf, stick with it no matter what others say. I really believe I will be a scratch golfer again.
