Response to Mindy's method is far simpler than the alternatives!
I agree that Mindy's swing is simpler than most. For one thing, most swings involve some sort of 'drop' of the club at top, either from gravity or intentionally by the golfer, and the downswing plane is thus flatter than backswing plane. If there is no drop and downswing plane exactly follows backswing plane, this makes the Blake swing virtually unique. As shown in the books, hands are closer to the body at address than at impact. This alone led me to conclude that backswing and downswing planes could not be a 'mirror' of each other. A while back you said you intended to work on the plane of your swing to make it steeper. Have you incorporated a steeper plane into your swing? Thanks, Jim
