Luke Donald Swing Analysis – Driver
Luke Donald has a great swing, like everyone else on tour.
Let’s look at how he does it:
At takeaway, Luke is actually on-plane. The red plane line is “Butch Harmon’s” teachings and the yellow line is “David Leadbetter’s” teachings.
Most pro tour follow the red or the yellow plane at takeaway.
At the top of the swing though, most players’ hands will match with the red plane as Luke is showing you here.
Right before impact, Luke’s body is nice and tall, ready to hit the ball from inside-out.
Take a look at how straight Luke’s arms, hands, and club form. This matches perfectly with the swing plane, Luke probably hit this 300 yards.
Luke does come up slightly early than most players but this is a good thing as he is standing “tall”.
