Golf Swing Trainer can revolutionize every aspect of your game.
From putting to driving, it's one of the best products you can buy!
The Plane-EZ Golf Swing Trainer combines an internal elastic
strap with a solid adjustable yoke. This technology gently restrains the
golfer's arms, yet allows a freedom of motion not found in other training aids.
"push-pull" action causes the wearer to make a full shoulder turn
and to swing "on-plane" every time!
The Plane-EZ Golf™ Training System includes the Plane-EZ Golf
Swing Trainer™ and a 35 minute instructional video featuring Bill Harmon, one of
GOLF Magazine's® Top 100 Teachers in America, and Cindy Reid, PGA and LPGA
Teaching Professional. Instruction covers 5 lessons on the most important
aspects of your game:
• Grip •
Full Swing • Bunker
• Chipping •
"The Plane-EZ Golf Swing Trainer™ is the simplest,
most effective training aid I have ever used. By maintaining the arm triangle
throughout the swing, the Plane-EZ™ allows the golfer to feel the blending of
the arms and body together, so the club stays on plane. I can't imagine ever
giving another lesson without the Plane-EZ™."

Teacher Director of Golf, Bighorn GC Palm
"The Plane-EZ™ allows the golfer to feel the
pendulum motion that is essential for putting and chipping. It is equally
effective on the full swing. I would recommend the Plane-EZ™ to

"Defies the Law of Slice"
Most golfers (80%) slice the ball because they swing "over the
top", that is, on a steep, outside-to-inside swing plane. Until the golfer
learns to swing along the proper swing plane or path, slicing will be a
continual problem. The key to swinging on-plane is to maintain the arm triangle
formed at address throughout the swing. By preventing breakdown in the distance
between the golfer's elbows, the Plane-EZ Golf Swing Trainer™ maintains the arm
triangle and encourages an on-plane swing time after time. You too can learn to
"defy the law of slice" by letting the Plane-EZ™ teach you the benefits of a
consistent, on-plane golf swing!
Dual Track Trainer
The swing plane has received a significant
amount of attention in recent years, having been a much ignored fundamental in
the past. Many modern teaching professionals now spend much more time focusing
on this misunderstood swing element. Most people only think of a swing plane as
being either upright (like a ferris wheel) or flat (like a merry-go-round). Most
of us have seen Hogan’s famous plane of glass image from his "Five
Fundamentals" book, where he says the plane should move parallel to the
imaginary sheet of glass laying on this shoulders and resting on the ground at
the ball, the club never breaking the glass. This, however, is only one possible
effective plane, and many great players have violated Hogan’s principle. Jack
Nicklaus, Bruce Lietzke and Hale Irwin are only three examples which come to
mind. The important fundamental among these players is that their approach
to the ball is still from the inside (relative to their setup). This principle
of swing path is also a major aspect of plane. For example, if one swings back
on too flat a plane (the most common error), and then returns on too steep a
plane (the usual result), the swing path will most likely be from out to in,
producing the popular slice. PGA professional Hank Haney, among others, teaches
that the downswing plane drops slightly inside the backswing plane, producing a
strong inside path.
While many factors influence the plane on which
you swing (e.g., spine angle, right forearm position at the top of the
backswing, degree of arm/body connection, and amount of knee drive), there is a
great training aid that can help improve the swing plane without
excessive focus on these
mechanical aspects. The Dual Track is a
plane and path trainer, which can be adjusted to any individual as to the flat
or upright preference of their swing. Once set, the player simply swings back
along the two guide rails. As the club shaft passes the waist high point of the
backswing, the entire Dual Track collapses
behind him or her, allowing a full, inside downswing. This unique characteristic
actually allows the player to hit balls without the risk of striking the device
during the swing.
Continued practice with the Dual
Track, especially under the guidance of a teaching professional, will
help to develop a correct, consistent plane. The many benefits of improved
contact, direction and distance will be well worth the
Face Angler is an
effective, simple tool made to check your club's face angle throughout your
swing. No more looking up at the club head at the top of your swing.
Follow the 6 steps outlined below by golf training professional Mark
Steinbauer to learn the proper muscle memory needed to perfect your
Use Face Angler together with swing path training
aids and you will be able to train for the two critical elements to a good
swing; swing path and club face angle.
You can also use Face Angler together
with video equipment to get a good idea of what is happening at impact during a
real swing. Since the hands and grip are going much slower than the club head,
it is possible to see much more detail during a swing, particularly near impact.
With the Face Angler installed, you can zoom in on the hands/lower chest area
during a taping sequence and note the club face angle by looking at the Face
Face Angler can be aligned
with the club face on the club head side or opposite the club head.
Half Circle SwingTrainer
Circle Swing Trainer permits student and teacher to monitor correct
swing plane & shaft angle. By keeping the shaft in continous contact with
the dual arcs, the player allows the club to travel on proper swing plane while
maintaining a correct shaft angle.
The Pre-Swing Set Up, Arc, and Plane of the golf
swing are the most important and basic things which must be learned by the
beginner golfer in the early stages of learning. Just as important are these
basic fundamentals for the intermediate and advanced players, to re-train these
proper positions of the golf swing. Using the Half Circle
Trainer will help create a consistent set-up position and the muscle
memory necessary to perform a more repetitive golf swing. The Half Circle Trainer will adjust in seconds to fit any club
in the bag. Keep the club head flush to the ground. Position the dual arcs so
that the shaft is in contact with both arc pipes, in your set-up position. Set
your body up square to the trainer, then begin to swing the club back and
through making sure the shaft of the club remains in constant contact with both
pipe arcs. This procedure will cause the club to travel on the correct swing
plane, while maintaining the proper shaft angle.
The Half Circle Trainer
can fold up flat in seconds for easy storage, and is lightweight (20 lbs.) for
easy transport. The frame is constructed of a High-Impact UV Stabilized plastic,
making it strong and completely weather resistant. Practice with the Half Circle Trainer at home or on the range just a few
times a week, and you are sure to see GREAT IMPROVEMENT in your golf game!
Plane Sight Laser
Plane Sight is an innovative golf
training aid. One of the keys of every golf swing is the
swing plane. The swing plane can be thought of as an imaginary piece of
glass extending from the ball over the golfers shoulders. It is shown in
blue in the photo to the right. A golf swing that is on plane
will follow a path parallel to this imaginary piece of glass as shown in
red. While this is not hard to understand, it is very difficult to
visualize. Trying to see or feel where the club is during your backswing
without stopping or looking up is nearly impossible. Some have tried large
circles of PVC pipe to swing over. This works well but is not very
practical. It is large, expensive and not very portable not to mention
what it does to those graphite shafts!
A golfer who is not swinging the club on
plane will find it very difficult to strike the ball well.
Another popular diagnostic tool is to take the
camcorder to the driving range and video tape your swing from behind. Then
while watching the tape, you can hold up a pencil to check your swing
plane. This will show you what your swing plane looked like earlier.
Unfortunately this is long after you were swinging and you won't be able to make
changes very quickly like this.
Here is where Plane Sight comes in. Plane Sight
is a small laser device which easily attaches to almost any golf club. The
laser light will show you where the butt of the club is pointing. It's a
training aid which can be used with your own club. It works for all
golfers - men, women, seniors, juniors, left handers and right handers!
The laser light will show you where the butt of the club is pointing.
As you swing the club, you will see a red laser
line. You will actually see three distinct laser lines - one during your
backswing, one during your downswing and one during your follow through.
This gives you three points during your golf swing at which you can now see your

the "over-the-top" shot - is there any tougher swing flaw to
correct? When we speak of this "over-the-top" shot, we are
referring to the golfer who takes the club excessively to the inside on the
takeaway and compensates by coming outside on the downswing. Teaching
professionals commonly refer to this as an "over-the-top" shot because the path
of the club goes outside the desired plane line and across the target line
through impact, instead of straight down it.(Fig. 1)
An ideal swing path
is one in which the club is taken back on a more outside or straight back path
on the takeaway to a slightly inside path on the downswing. This creates a swing
plane, which allows the club to stay on the target line longer before and after
impact. The result is a ball flight that starts down the target line or just
right of it.(Fig. 2)
A golf club swung on the correct swing plane gives a
golfer the best chance of hitting shots that repeatedly go straighter and
longer. Research has shown that 90% of all amateur golfers suffer from swing
plane related problems. It was with this in mind that we began looking for a way
to correct swing plane problems faster and simpler so that students see
improvements in their ball striking within minutes not months. THE PLANE STICK does just that!
Adapted from the popular PVC Halve Circle Trainer, the Full Circle Trainer has the same spring-pin adjustment to create the perfect plane for the chosen club. High impact UV stabilized plastic, making it strong and completely weather resistant.

EZ Plane Trainer
Ben Hogan referred to the swing plane
as a "three-dimensional road map" for the golf swing. It's that invisible,
imaginary, sloping, circular path that is carved in the air as the best golfers
make their swing. Understanding this concept is vital if you want to develop a
perfect golf swing and, of course, hit great golf shots.
All professional golf instructors
endorse the swing plane concept and many use the "invisible sheet of glass"
analogy to represent the swing plane. Think of it as a channel in space, several
inches thick in which the club travels during the key parts of the
The golf swing is "on-plane" as long as
either end of the club is pointing at the target-line throughout the swing. The
target-line is the line that extends from your target back to your ball and
If we project a beam of light from
either end of the golf club, parallel to the shaft, it would trace the
target-line throughout the entire swing. If either light beam (head-end or
grip-end) strays from the target-line it would indicate being off-plane and
would suggest corrective action be taken to improve the swing. By seeing your
own swing plane in action you could rapidly develop the perfect golf
The EZ Plane™ Swing
Trainer makes your swing plane visible to you while you are practicing. The
EZ Plane™ Swing Trainer projects highly focused beams of light from both
ends of any golf club. With the high visibility target-line supplied, you will
be able to see exactly where your club shaft is pointing throughout the entire
swing. The swing trainer works with any golfclub ... drivers, woods, irons and
putters. Nothing to install - no moving parts. Simply
place the EZ Plane™ Swing Trainer in your hands and pick-up the club of
your choice and you are ready to swing ON PLANE!
HOLDING THE EZ PLANE™
|1. Select the club you wish to practice with. Turn
on the lights at both ends of the EZ Plane™
Swing Trainer by screwing the lens down.|
|2. Simply place the EZ Plane™ Swing Trainer in your hands as you grasp the club
handle with a normal grip. The narrow end should be pointing down, away
from your body.|
|3. The taper of the club handle fits perfectly
into the trough of the EZ Plane™ Swing
Trainer so you won't even know it's there. Now you are ready to practice
your swing "on plane".|
The most common problems that players face can be
avoided by retraining yourself with the EZ Plane™ Swing Trainer. Make adjustments to your
body and club position during the swing to ensure your club is on-plane. With
each correction, try to mentally record the "feel" of the correct on-plane
motion that will keep you hitting it long and straight.
Remember, golf is an
easy game. Keep it that way!

it. So many of our daily activities -- from brushing our teeth to eating a meal
-- are done with the right side. In golf, this can cause problems.
Moreover, I have found that many of you out there are unsure of
the role of the right arm and right side in the golf swing. Make no bones about
it: the correct positioning of the right arm and right side are essential for
