The Peak Performance Golf Swing is the most body-friendly swing being taught today. Designed to eliminate any of the nagging injuries we so often see in the sport of golf, the PPGS has helped many golfers not only return to the sport they love, but also reach new levels of consistency never before seen.
Al Pelkowski had a back fusion last August. He's in the process of looking for new clubs, as his old ones can no longer be used. He's already given himself a self diagnosis and is thinking about switching to hybrid irons with ladies shafts. Well, golf is just like life. Al most assuredly went to a back specialist for his surgery. The same respect must be shown when switching clubs and using a new swing. You've got to get to the experts!
I have purchased some of your products and will be needing some help. I had a back fusion in August. I have experimented with your swing prior and had some decent results. How important will it be for me to be able to move my right ankle? I will no longer be able to use my clubs. I am considering hybrid irons with ladies shafts. Need to get ready for next sesason.
First of all, since Al had his back fused, he's not going to be able to turn much. His swing speed will take a hit as well. I want to address both of these issues. I think Al knows this is the body friendly golf swing. Many golfers who have had back issues find us because they want to keep playing golf, just without the back pain. This swing will also help you avoid hip, shoulder, neck, knee, and ankle pain. A lot of people find us who have never had any of those issues (and who don't want them!) so this swing is similar to preventative maintenance for them.
The other big thing I want to discuss is when Al suggested going to ladies' shafts. This could be a critical issue, in one way or another. They might not be the shafts that he needs. Senior shafts might be the way to go. The point is that there's no way for anyone to know what clubs they need just by guessing. Self diagnosis, in terms of equipment or your swing, is the equivalent to self diagnosing your health. When you're sick, you go see your doctor. If you needed surgery, you would go to the right specialist. When you're having problems with your swing or clubs, you need to go to the right golf specialist, whether it's a certified instructor or a certified club fitter.
The information you can get from a fitter is something you'd never be able to obtain by yourself. That's why I say golf is like life. When you have issues, go to the experts to find the answers. Self diagnosis will very likely take you down the wrong path that can lead to more injuries and bad golf.
Lastly, Al asked about his right ankle. If you're a righ handed golfer with a sore right ankle, that's actually better than having a sore left ankle. This is because the left foot rolls over and has a lot more action on the ankle. If you've got a bad left ankle, you can open up your front foot to decrease pressure on that whole side. If it's your back ankle, you've got to be able to push off. If you can't do that, then you may need to see an expert and begin a rehab period so you can heal.
Remember...tension, stress, and strain equal pain. Get to the right golf specialist so you can start enjoying the game we all love.
