When I look at the picture a line from the ball to the clubhead is not parallel to the line formed by the club face. If you draw a line from the clubface to the ball and call that the plane. then of course the clubface lies on it. That says nothing about their relative orientations

I was quoting DavidL from the previous post. Not you unless you are also DavidL

That must be an amazing rate of rotation to rotate through over 90 degrees along the axis of the shaft from the position shown in the picture (slightly above hip high) to fully perpendicular to the plane line at hip height. The videos I have do not show this.

I think you mean this whole "thread". You introduced TGM not I. I used a term and defined it. Just because that term exists in TGM does not mean that was my source. Personally I find TGM language often non-intuitive and I am more interested here in effective communication than in adhering to a particular dogma.

A plane here is a two dimensional object in a 3 dimensional space. The line formed by the plane when viewed from the back looking down the target line is not the target line. it is a line sloped from the ball to, in Hogan's case, the shoulder. This is the perspective being used when people talk about being under or over the plane. This is also the perspective when Moe talks about his downswing being 'flatter' than his upswing.

I don't think this thread is going in a direction that will add value to this board so I will end my participation at this point. The positions are here and the photos are there for examination. Everyone can form their own opinions. Thank you all for your indulgence.
