No golfer likes to hear the "S" word during a round. That's right, I'm referring to the shanks. Even I prefer to call them hosel rockets, but a question was sent in that asked how golfers can avoid shanking a golf ball and what may be causing it.
There are a lot of reasons why the Peak Performance Golf Swing is easier to learn. For starters, it's the most body-friendly swing being taught today, so that means you can immediately play more golf! Instead of being in pain after a round or practice session, you'll be able to work on your game... more
One of the easiest ways to spot a PPGS golfer is to look at the position of their feet in the setup. If they're set up correctly, you will see that each foot is flared out instead of pointing straight out in front of them.
The Peak Performance Golf Swing works for golfers of all shapes and sizes. Whether you're a male golfer with a big belly or a female golfer with large breasts, the vertical swing enables these types of players to make solid contact on a consistent basis without being obstructed by their build.... more
Because the Peak Performance Golf Swing advocates a 3/4 limited turn, vertical golf swing, many of my students think that the club must never rotate behind their toe line. While it's important to avoid swinging into the sacred burial ground, you still need to have some turn in order to maintain... more
There are so many websites out there claiming that one little trick can help you add 40 - 50 more yards to your game. But, that's simply not realistic. If you work hard, you're going to become a better golfer, but I'll never tell you that the PPGS will automatically allow you to hit the ball 50... more
I like sharing success stories because every single one is unique. It's also because sometimes these testimonials can help other golfers who are having similar problems.
Today I'm going to explain exactly why the Peak Performance Golf Swing is the only swing you should be using. Not only is the PPGS the easiest swing on the body, but it's also the only swing that's based entirely on fact.
Nothing pleases me more than when I receive emails and messages from Surgites around the world who express the vast improvement in their game after switching to the Peak Performance Golf Swing. It makes it all worth it!
Having correct posture is very important if you want to be a consistent golfer. It's just as important as any other element of the PPGS Master Setup position.
The parameters of the Peak Performance Golf Swing are in place for a reason. They are meant to help you achieve a limited-turn, vertical golf swing. But, you should always remember that how you're hitting the ball is what matters most.
If you've ever had problems understanding or executing the "bump", today's video is going to help. Proper weight transfer and releasing the club to impact is very important in golf. If your arms aren't straight at impact, there could be an issue with your bump.
Having proper balance is obviously very important in the game of golf. But, knowing how to maintain perfect balance isn't always quite so obvious. I've actually been experiencing some issues with staying grounded throughout the swing, so I thought if it can happen to me, it can most likely... more
The Peak Performance Golf Swing is the only swing that is based entirely on science. The physics of a golf swing and the physiology of the human body must be in harmony. If they are, you're left with the most body-friendly swing being taught today.
When you're able to get the ball up and down seemingly from anywhere, you've got an advantage over any player you tee it up against. Most golfers are more concerned with hitting the ball longer, exhibiting their power in the process. But, the best way to shoot lower scores is to become a short... more
Earlier in the week, I talked about one of our most popular full length videos, "Working the Ball". Today, I'm going to talk about its must-have companion, "Situational Shots: On the Course".
I know you've faced it. A tough dog leg left with out of bounds on the right. It's holes like this that make you wish you could hit a draw. Well, you can hit a draw and it's not as hard as you think.
Is there such a thing as a perfect golf swing? This may come as a surprise, but the answer is yes. Unfortunately, it's impossible to do, but we can come within an eyelash of doing it as long as we follow the basic laws of physics and physiology.
One of the great things about a vertical golf swing is that it allows you to maintain equal pressure in each hand throughout the entirety of the swing. That's because your arms and hands go straight up and straight down...or at least they should!
Jack Nicklaus has recently started to endorse a type of grip that has counterweights built right into them. Obviously, being perhaps the greatest player of all time, Mr. Nicklaus holds a ton of credibility when it comes to golf equipment. If his name is on it, it sells. But, what kind of golfer... more
The setup determines the motion. I've said that for years, and it's absolutely true. But, the takeaway determines the backswing, so it's important to understand exactly how to start your swing once you're ready to pull the trigger. By now, you should know that you need to take the club back toe... more
The game of golf is seeing participation drop all across the world. Golf courses and clubs are struggling to stay open and overall rounds played are way down. What could be the cause of all this?
PPGS Certified Fitter, Frank Stranick was kind enough to shoot some videos on club fitting while I'm recovering from surgery. Frank is very knowledgable about all things related to custom golf clubs. One of the great things about swingsurgeon.com is that we have such a strong core of instructors... more
Hello Surge Nation! Have the golf courses been kind to you so far this summer? I'd be willing to bet that some of you just hesitated when thinking about the answer, which means you're probably not entirely enamored with the current state of your golf game. It probably doesn't help seeing Rory... more
I hope all my fellow Americans are having a wonderful 4th of July weekend and I hope the rest of you are enjoying some fantastic weather (and perhaps a little World Cup action). Maybe some of you were even lucky enough to sneak away for 18 holes!
