The A Swing Training Aid Plane Tape is an ideal way to monitor your swing planes back and through and to observe head and body movement as outlined by David Leadbetter's new training system, The A Swing.
Starting a few feet away from the mirror, and swinging away from it, have a friend position the Plane Tape on the mirror at the same angle as your shaft at address––the original swing plane. If working on the A Swing, place a second strip angled above it as described in the A Swing instruction book. Experiment to get the tape in the correct position, and then rehearse the backswing and downswing using the \/ plane concept.
Facing the mirror, place a piece of tape in a vertical position to observe movement off the ball on the backswing and excessive lateral motion on the downswing. The Plane Tape provides visual feedback to make practice more productive.
The A Swing — A stands for Alternative - is a simple way to swing the club, which follows biomechanically sound, scientific principles, and only requires minimal practice. The A Swing has been thoroughly tested with a wide range of players, from tour level to beginner, junior to senior, and the results overall have been nothing short of dramatic.
The A Swing is a way to develop a consistent, repetitive motion which will improve accuracy and distance, and is easy on the body. It will fix many of golf’s common faults, and the book takes you through an easy, step-by-step approach. With over 200 illustrations, easy drills, and the 7-Minute Practice Plan, golfers now have the opportunity to play the way they’ve always dreamed of.
Golf is a frustrating game, even for the top players, but the A Swing will make it easier and more fun. It could really change the way the game has been taught, which hasn’t changed for years—it is not an exact method, and has leeway for individualism.
David is excited that the A Swing will help golfers the world over enjoy the game more. In essence, the A Swing is a shortcut to great golf. Whatever your level of play is now, whatever your goals, however you’ve been struggling with the game, the A Swing could change your golfing life.
