At this month’s FFN@N, we learned from Mike Carter, one of 91 professionally certified golf instructors associated with The Plane Truth golf instruction. Jim Hardy, world top 10 teacher and Chris O’Connell, Matt Kuchar’s instructor, are the driving force behind The Plane Truth golf instruction. Mike’s instruction is based on the paradigm that the golf swing is either one plane or two plane and it will benefit a golfer to understand which type of swing he or she has. Once the student has this knowledge, the lesson is simply one of neutralizing the steep and shallow issues a student has in the swing.
Mike is a 1970 graduate of The Citadel. After graduation he served in the Medical Field Service Corp of the United States Army. Upon completing his service to his country, he returned to Greenville and subsequently purchased two golf driving ranges where he taught golf. In his early thirties, he sold both ranges and entered the financial services industry. In 2010 Mike retired.
