What is golf shoulder plane?

In order to check your shoulder plane, simply get in front of a mirror. If your shoulders are more parallel to the ground, you have a flat shoulder plane at the top of your backswing. If your shoulders and the club are pointed at or inside of the golf ball, you most likely have too steep of a shoulder plane.

What plane of motion is a golf swing?

Transverse plane – passes through the middle of the body and divides the body horizontally in an upper and lower half. Rotation types of movement occur in this plane, eg hip rotation in a golf swing, twisting in a discus throw, pivoting in netball, spinning in skating.

What is the proper shoulder turn in golf?

90 degrees
In the backswing, your shoulders ought to turn 90 degrees away from the ball and away from the target. So, your chest will, pretty much be facing directly away from your target. If you were to draw a line across your shoulders, that line would be perpendicular to your target line.

How can I play golf with a bad shoulder?

If shoulder rotation becomes limited, you may need longer clubs. Use a rolled up towel under your right arm during practice swings to keep the elbow close to your body and limit strain on the shoulder. Most patients who suffer a golf related shoulder injury respond successfully to non-surgical treatments.

What are the planes of motion?

The three planes of motion are the sagittal, frontal and transverse planes.

  • Sagittal Plane: Cuts the body into left and right halves. Forward and backward movements.
  • Frontal Plane: Cuts the body into front and back halves. Side-to-side movements.
  • Transverse Plane: Cuts the body into top and bottom halves.

What axis is perpendicular to the sagittal plane?

Coronal axis
Coronal axis, medial-lateral axis, or frontal axis is the axis perpendicular to the sagittal plane, i.e., the one formed by the intersection of the coronal and the transversal planes. Extension and flexion are the movements of limbs within the sagittal plane.
