About The Book

The mysterious and reclusive genius Moe Norman is acknowledged as the best ball-striker in the history of golf by many of the game's greats. The Single Plane Golf Swing: Play Better Golf the Moe Norman Way reveals the secrets of the swing that enabled him to hit the ball solidly with unerring accuracy and consistency-every time. Norman's simple, efficient, and easily understood Single Plane Swing has improved the games of thousands of golfers. Golf professional Todd Graves, known as ''Little Moe'' and regarded as the world authority on Norman's swing, comprehensively teaches readers the mechanics, drills, and feelings of the Single Plane Swing that Moe called ''The Feeling of Greatness.'' Graves shares Norman's brilliant insights and liberating approach to the game and demonstrates why the conventional ''tour'' swing is too complex and frustrating for the majority of amateurs.

Two different swing planes form at address, along the arms and the clubshaft.
Two planes have to align into one for the clubface to square up at impact.

TWO PLANE SWING | Complicates Impact

The two-plane mistake makes the swing very difficult, requiring the following complex body movements to square the club face at impact:
  1. Lifting of the spine and upper back
  2. Straightening of the lead knee and rotation of the lead and trail hip
  3. Lifting of the arms and shoulders
  4. Rotations of the trail arm and hand
  5. Lifting of the trail foot
  6. The Force of lifting the body into impact produces undue stress on the back


One swing plane at address and impact simplifies the golf swing.
One swing plane simplifies impact making it easier to square club at impact

THE SINGLE PLANE | Simplifies Impact

It’s much easier for the golfer to arrive soundly at impact and hit the ball solidly with the Single Plane Swing. Moe Norman accomplished this in the following ways:
  1. Establishing the same plane at address and impact
  2. Keeping both feet completely grounded back and through, eliminating spine lift
  3. Minimizing shoulders and hip movement

Moe Norman’s swing makes golf easier to learn, less stressful and more enjoyable to play.


MORE CONSISTENT | Easier to Repeat

Consistency increases when unnecessary rotation is eliminated. Moe reduced rotation by:
  1. Placing the trail hand in a non-rotational position on the club
  2. Placing the lead hand in a neutral position
  3. Stabilizing the trail knee, reducing rotation
  4. Creating a solid A-frame foundation with a wide stance
  5. Maintaining a flexed lead knee through impact, reducing lead hip rotation
  6. Tilting the spine (face-on view) places trail shoulder on plane, eliminating shoulder over-rotation

EASIER ON THE BODY | Less Overall Stress

Moe’s swing is easier on the body:
  1. Spine compression radically decreases when the spine doesn’t move up
  2. Flexed left knee takes stress off the back
  3. Shallower swing path reduces stress on hands and arms due to proper spacing
  4. Stress on the back is eliminated when the spine remains in same tilt through the swing
