Are there any tour players using this method?
Steve Stricker, Brian Gay (close), Carl Peterson – just to name a few who have very similar swings. Moe Norman’s swing is an easier way to go from start to impact. Most players start in an improper starting position (arms below the shoulders). This is a tenet of instruction but there is no reason to hang the arms below the shoulders – especially if you are hitting a golf ball where it is not below the shoulders. This is why no tour players swing this way. They are subject to the traditional “hang your arms” conventional instruction.
Here’s a video analysis of Steve Stricker’s swing and how it is very similar to the Single Plane method:
