Getting Started With Your PlaneMate™®

There are a variety of high-level drills for your PlaneMate. To get started, we recommend building familiarity with this foundation exercise.

  • Using the Pitch Motion Resistance Band (short green band), connect the band 4-6” below your grip (we suggest using a PW) and form your golfers’ address position. A golf ball is not needed for this critical starting motion. Accept the mild sense of tension the fitness cable provides. You’ll need to get your lead arm in front of your chest and relatively straight in order to support the tension of the fitness cable.
  • With a relatively narrow pitching stance and without a backswing, rotate your body onto your lead foot to the post impact position, semi-follow through, where the shaft is parallel to the ground after impact.
  • The fitness cable will put your arms under mild stress as you make this motion. Welcome this stress and maintain your structure, as you begin programming your new movement patterns.
  • Without making any attempt at a backswing, move from address to semi-follow through, sensing how your body both rotates (turns) and relocates (shifts) onto your lead heel allowing your trail foot to bank up onto its’ toe. As you do this exercise, you’ll feel your forward bend (hip hinge) of address transform as your lead side grows taller and your trail side grows shorter until you are fully rotated to full height with your weight primarily resting on your lead heel with your trail leg pulled so your trail foot is vertical with a small percentage of weight on your trail toe.

Hitting Short Shots

  • Now that you are familiar with the through-swing feeling, it’s time to add a ball. Using a short tee and with intent to hit a shot 20-40 yards, keep mild tension on the fitness band at address and during your backswing until the club begins to pass approximately waist height. Keep tension on the band!
  • As the club passes waist height, you can relax your wrists to feel the club head get pulled gently behind your hands by the relaxing of the band.
  • As you allow the resistance to subside, the club will shallow into a powerful position behind you. From here, it is time to rotate and relocate to the semi-follow through position, collecting the ball along the way.

DISCLAIMER: Check with your physician to ensure that you are suited for strenuous physical activity; golf or otherwise. Tour Striker and Driven Golf, do not accept liability for injury from the use, misuse, or overuse of the PlaneMate™®. Use at your own risk. Please return the product if you do not agree with the above statement for an immediate, full refund.

Wearing your PlaneMate: The PlaneMate can fit waists 27-52”. Position is very important. Position the PlaneMate Rail to the right of your belt buckle so the rail runs toward and beyond your right hipbone. Each fitness band has two clips. The larger clip secures to the PlaneMate Rail and the smaller clip to the Club Connector.

Attaching PlaneMate Club Connector: The Club Connector can be secured to either the balance point near the club head, or 4-6” below the grip. Secure the Club Connector using the appropriate channel to accommodate location on golf shaft. Use reasonable force when tightening the thumbscrew to ensure the Club Connector cannot work free during training. CAUTION: Be mindful not to over-tighten the Club Connector which could possibly harm a composite shaft. Position the Club Connector parallel to the target line, behind the shaft. Depending on your physical size, mild adjustment, up or down the shaft may be needed to establish reasonable band tension. For greater detail, please refer to the unboxing video above.
