Swing Plane

Swing plane is a commonly used term in golf instruction. Variations that you will hear are on plane, off plane. above plane, or below plane. The plane is usually defined by the shaft of the golf club at address.

It is commonly taught that an “on plane” swing will create a straight ball flight, though this is not the case: a swing can look like it’s on plane and still have any number of different club paths.
