I recently received a nicely written message from Don Klein commending the Peak Performance Golf Swing. Of course it's always nice to hear that golfers are playing pain-free golf and having positive results, but the reason I wanted to share the message with the Surge Nation isn't just because it's a nice story. There's one particular part of Don's letter that I think speaks to a big problem in rotational golf instruction.
See if you can pick it out:
I just read your daily about playing with no pain and thought I would tell you a little about my pain/no pain experiences. Everywhere I go it seems that we always start talking about golf. The dentist, bank, check out lines, work, parties, friends' houses, appointments, the practice range, repair shops...you get the idea. The conversations always, and I mean always, turns to back and or knee pain from golfing. I am 54 years old and in great shape and when I started playing golf four years ago, the back pain from the many rotational swing lessons forced me to consider giving it up for good. I did not know at the time that there was an alternative swing method. Then a new golf friend suggested your website. Three years later, I can play all day, everyday, (when I can), am not intimidated by a tough course, and play to a 15 handicap (sometimes single digits) and have a blast doing it. Playing a round or two with your swing actually makes my back feel better, almost like a good massage. Now when I have those conversations at all the above mentioned places, I tell all the pain sufferers that they can actually play pain free and play well. I don't know how many of them are open-minded enough to actually give SwingSurgeon.com a try, but I hope some have. There is a lot of bad information out there to overcome, so I will continue spreading the word. I've been working all winter on the video instructions and look forward every day to another feel good daily message.
Keep up the great work,
With the way golf is taught by the majority of instructors, many people can become seriously involved in a struggle between staying healthy and being able to play any golf at all. Don's letter proves this. He says that any conversation about golf somehow ends up with a discussion about back and knee pain. Even he was considering dropping golf all together because of the pain he was having to play with.
Luckily, there is an alternative and it's the Peak Performance Golf Swing. The problem is that we are in the minority and many golfers don't think you can play with a limited turn, vertical swing. That's where you come in! I'm grateful for every single Surgite that has bought into what I'm trying to teach to the golfing community, and I love when we get new people to the site because that means you're out there spreading the word. Not only can you play golf with a vertical swing, but you're most likely going to play better and most certainly without the type of pain associated with a rotational swing.
Thank you Don, and everyone, please feel free to share how you found out about SwingSurgeon.com and the PPGS below!
Keep it vertical!
