A familiar topic, shaft length of golf clubs. What is the one thing we always say? That off the shelf clubs are never fit right; adjustments for your swing are always necessary.
A great question arrived asking about when do you need to change the stiffness of your golf clubs. This is a fact of life, we age and our swing speeds start to change. We do not hit the ball as far as we once did. I have had this happen to me like everyone else.
Physical limitations can plague anyone, but it is is not the end of your golf game. In the Peak Performance Golf Swing, we learn to work around the limitations you may have. Today we have a great story from a recent school where we had a student with a restriction with one of his arms that... more
Thinking about purchasing a new driver? Going the proper route of buying a fitted driver but do not know what you should be looking for in the fitting process? Frank Stranick is here to tell you what you should be looking for in your next driver fitting. The first step is selecting a fitter that... more
Frank brings another great technical discussion of club fitting. Have you heard of Moment of Inertia (MOI) and Swing Weight matching? Have you ever wondered what the difference is and which one is best? Frank describes both and explains why MOI matching is the best for you as a player.
As a follow up to a previous daily, Frank Stranick comes to you with some science and data about club length and the golf swing. As we have always said, longer clubs are not better.
Many have asked about one-length irons with rising PGA Star Bryson DeChambeau having a very successful pro debut on the PGA tour in 2016. Not to mention one heck of a showing at this year's Masters.
Today, Frank Stranick is back to talk drivers and shafts. Believe it or not, there's a certain kind of shaft available for every type of golfer. If you tend to hit a fade, there's a shaft that can help. If you have problems hooking the ball, there's a shaft for that too.
Today, PPGS Certified Fitter, Frank Stranick is going to prove why the putter can often be the most overlooked club in one's bag. Great putters are certainly in the minority, and it's arguably because amateur golfers just don't spend as much time practicing their putting as they do their long... more
Today I'll continue with my series on DJ's most recent trip to see my good friend and PPGS Director of Club Fitting, Doc Griffin. After DJ loved the results he was getting with his new driver, Doc built some fairway woods to go with it. We later played 36 holes together and I don't think I saw... more
Today, I'll discuss my son DJ's recent club fitting session with Doc Griffin. We spent a lot of time working through every club in the bag, but Doc was able to provide some really interesting information about DJ's driver in particular.
My son DJ and I recently went to see Doc Griffin for a club fitting session. Over the next week or so, I'll be sharing details from DJ's club fitting, which included working on the driver, fairway woods, and irons.
Doc Griffin is back with a house call to discuss who should get fit for golf clubs and when. One argument that Doc hears a lot relates to golfers that would rather wait to get fit for a custom set of golf clubs until after they improve their game.
If you tend to hit the ground first when swinging a golf club, there are a few different reasons why this could happen. The first thing you need to check is the length of your clubs.
If you've never been custom fit for clubs by a PPGS Certified Fitter, I'd be willing to bet that your driver and 3 wood are probably way too long. I can't tell you how many times I've had students tell me that they can hit all their irons great, but as soon as they try to hit a driver, the ball... more
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
If you've finally decided that you want to take your game to the next level and purchase custom fit golf clubs, it's safe to say that one of the most important things (if not the most important) to you is gaining power and distance.
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
We have always spoken very strongly about getting your clubs custom fit, the benefits of fitted clubs, and our network of certified fitters. There have been many posts on this website in regards to club head design, shaft lengths, materials, and various other aspects of clubs.
I think it's finally safe to say that Old Man Winter has gone on vacation. With warmer temperatures now available to most Surgites, many of you will start getting into your regularly scheduled round (or rounds) of golf each week. But, are you happy with your golf clubs?
As The Masters quickly approaches, the unofficial start of the 2014 golf season is upon many of you. That means getting the clubs out of the basement or garage, dusting them off, and hitting the practice range.
Doc Griffin is back today and he's here to call out many golf club lies that have been in place for too many years. Golf club manufacturers are in the business of building clubs for one reason...making money. That means they don't really care how good your game is, just as long as you're... more
If you're at all confused by the title of today's video, I'm not actually talking about a 1 iron. Most golfers (even professionals) do not carry 1 irons in their bags anymore. Heck, most of them don't even carry 2 irons. Regardless, what I'm referring to today is a set of irons that all have the... more
Have you ever thought about adding lead tape to one of your golf clubs? Many golfers consider it, but ultimately decide not to because they think it will ruin their clubs. It's definitely a process of trial and error, but the benefit is that it could give you the feeling you've been looking for... more
Thanksgiving marked the beginning of the holiday season, which means the end of the year is quickly approaching. This year has certainly gone fast and soon enough, another golf season will be upon us!
