Sacred Burial Ground
A tip based on golf schools over the last year, proper turn in the backswing. The Peak Performance Golf Swing is a "limited turn" golf swing; that does not mean no turn at all!
We received a question from Dave through the site that he has problems with arm stress in the backswing. A quote from his message is this:
In order to execute a proper vertical lift in your backswing, your bottom hand must be actively engaged in keeping the club from laying off when you take the club back and up. It's a natural lift, so you don't need to take the club away low or over-extend with your arms.
In today's segment, I'll discuss Keenan's tendency to over rotate in his backswing, a problem that can be hard to fight if you golf with rotational golfers on a regular basis.
I love when Surgites around the world send in emails about successes they're having. Today I want to share a story from Ray, who expressed that a flying front elbow (first time I've ever heard that term!) was causing him to lay the club off in his back swing, which spells disaster for a vertical... more
Many golf instructors will teach a particular type of swing, yet they do not use it themselves. They tell you to do as they say, not as they do. Well, I think that is simply ridiculous. If you don't use the swing you teach to others, what's the point of teaching at all?
As long as I've been teaching the Peak Performance Golf Swing, I've had rotary golfers insist that my methods are wrong. I've always been able to handle the critics, especially because my swing is the only swing that is based entirely on the laws of physics, physiology, and anatomy.
I've had people tell me the sacred burial ground sounds kind of scary. Well, that's the idea! You should be frightened any time you even think about letting your club swing into it.
When swinging vertically, the golf club should become light and easy to wield. When you start turning too much, the club becomes heavy and much more difficult to swing.
Most of you know that the sacred burial ground is classified as anything behind your toe line. I like to say that, "It's okay to stand in it, but if you swing in it, you're dead!" But, I think I need to elaborate on this "Surgism" just a little bit because some of you may be confused.
