What is D Plane ? D plane is what gives the ball its flight characteristics, it is a correlation between the clubs blade at impact and how the clubs center of gravity is moving throught the ball. This determines the the golf ball’s vertical axis which again using FlightScope we can tell you to the degree.
It produces a consistent draw: Swinging the arms and shoulders on the same plane naturally creates a flatter (more horizontal) swing , with the club arching around the body. This promotes a clubhead path that approaches the ball from inside the target line the essential ingredient to hitting right-to-left shots.
Standard lie angles are, typically, between 55 and 65 degrees depending on the club. What It Means To Swing On Plane Imagine a huge pane of glass that sits at about a 60- degree angle and cuts right through the chest of a golfer. That pane of glass represents a golfer’s ideal swing plane.
Technical Definition: Swing Plane – The vertical angle of the plane relative to the horizon defined by the club head’s center of gravity movement prior to impacting the golf ball. Remark: TrackMan uses the club head’s position data from both before and after impact to establish the SWING PLANE .

Two Plane Swings (white shirt) In the backswing, the arms move in a more upright plane , with the shoulders rotating on a relatively flatter plane . Typically, in order to create sufficient swing width, the left arm ‘disconnects’ from the left chest,while the body shifts slightly to the right.
But that doesn’t prohibit you from hitting the ball farther. On the contrary–a shorter, flatter swing is much easier to keep on-plane than a longer, more upright swing . You’ll make fewer compensations on the downswing and hit the sweet spot on the clubface more often, producing greater ball speeds and bigger drives.
Professional and low-handicap golfers consider the swing plane to be one of the most important concepts in golf . Swing plane directly relates to how straight, high and far one can hit the ball. If the ball is on a sidehill lie where the ball is above your feet, your swing plane will naturally be flatter.
