TrackMan’s 10 Fundamentals – Club Path (6/10) TrackMan | 4 | by TrackMan Tour Pro Kevin Streelman and Darren May explaining our 10 Fundamentals – Club Path, and how to get it closer to 0.
Of my experience with flight systems over the years, I’m not sure I’ve seen any swing plane’s over 60, let alone 65. Is this implying that in order to deliver the club on a consistent path, the golfer must be over 60 swing plane with a 6 iron?
The higher value of the swing plane, the less the club path will be affected by any change in angle of attack.
As a theoretical example, the extreme case of a 90 deg plane, the club path will always move on the target line and the club path will always be zero.
When the sw plane is 45 deg, then the club path will change 1 deg for every deg the angle of attack is changing.
I hope this helps your understanding.
What’s the difference between swing direction and club path? They seem like the same thing and the difference between the two wasn’t explained in the video.
The swing direction is the direction of the club head mass at the low point.
Club path is the direction of the club headed at the point of impact.
I hope this helps your understanding on the two definitions.
