If you've ever thought about skipping your backswing and just starting your swing from the top, you're not alone. Steve Ruis sent in an interesting question about the possibility of cutting out the backswing all together. He equated the idea to how a baseball player starts a swing with the bat... more
Your wrists play an important role in your golf swing and you've most likely heard me say that good wrist action is no wrist action. However, I see a lot of students that tend to bow or break their wrists near the top of their swing.
After Inbee Park won the Kraft Nabisco Championship last month, I got a few emails from Surgites asking if she was using the Peak Performance Golf Swing on her way to victory in the year's first major.

I'm really excited to share today's question with the Surge Nation because it's one that I don't think I've ever had in the thousands of daily videos I've recorded over the last few years. It has to do with the relationship between the Peak Performance Golf Swing and ball flight.

We all want to hit the ball farther. Whether it's to keep up with your friends or your kids, being able to hit the ball with more power is a common desire. Rotational swingers do this by turning even more than they already do. Just the thought of turning that much makes my back hurt!
