I recently returned from another successful group of golf schools. I really enjoy the interaction I have with my students, and this trip had some really terrific people. But, the important thing about these schools is working on improvement.

Many golfers are more concerned with hitting the ball long than working on their short game. But, what they don't realize is that your short game is the key to shooting lower scores. The woods are full of golfers who can hit the ball far, but how many truly great short game wizards are there in... more

Many golfers who find the Peak Performance Golf Swing do so because they are searching for a way to play golf pain free. After finding the swing, a lot of Surgites mention that they wish they would have found the PPGS long ago.

For today's daily video, I'm going to share a great swing thought that was sent in from a Surgite. John Borgas had been having some trouble with the concepts of taking the club back into the catcher's mitt. He was worrying so much about where his hands were, the rest of his swing was being... more

I'm busy putting together a whole batch of new daily videos for the Surge Nation, so today I thought I'd share an oldie but a goodie! Back before I had my "Backyard Driving Range," there was the "Back Porch." I shot many daily videos from my own back porch.

From the beginning of your swing to the moment you recoil and relax, your balance should never waver. If you maintain this dynamic balance throughout your swing, there is a good chance you probably just hit a good shot.

With The Masters less than a month away, it means the 2014 golf season will soon be in full swing for many Surgites who live in colder regions. That means a lot of you will be playing golf for the first time in a while. Luckily, the Peak Performance Golf Swing is easy to repeat, even if you... more

If you don't keep your knees relatively level, you're going to fall out of dynamic balance and start hitting bad shots. The key to staying level is being in an athletically ready position and resisting the front knee from kicking in during your backswing. The knee can move slightly, but it ... more

If you want to hit a golf ball straight and with any sort of consistency, you need to have a square club at impact. But, impact isn't the only spot in which the clubface should be square. The setup determines the motion, so your clubface had better be square when you're in your address position... more

A golf instructor should be able to demonstrate the swing he or she teaches with consistent success. Sometimes, because I'm always helping other players with their swings, I forget to take a hard look at my own. Even I have to practice to stay sharp and if I'm not trying to get better, my game... more

Today, I'm going to share a recent conversation I had with a very talented professional who uses the PPGS. It had to do with ball flight and whether or not the PPGS gives you any advantage or disadvantage when it comes to length.

If you play with a rotational swing, there's a good chance that you are delofting your club at impact. The reason this happens is because the first movement of a rotational player is a turn. This causes you to get ahead of the ball, which means you can't straighten your arms out at impact.

Golf is a game of angles...the fewer the better. That's the first rule you should know about golf and the Peak Performance Golf Swing. This is especially true whenever you're trying to reach back for that little extra power.

If you've never heard of "the bump", it's what initiates the downswing. It's a slight movement with your hips toward the target that allows your arms to fall freely from the vertical position.

For most golfers, alignment is hard enough as it is. But, imagine if you only had one good eye. That's the situation Bob Biancucci is faced with every time he tees it up.

If you've all been watching the WGC Match Play championship duel between Jason Day and Victor Dubuisson today, you've seen some incredible recovery shots. Being able to get up and down like the pros can be tough, but if you hold your knees steady and maintain proper balance, you set yourself up... more

Golf is a game of misses and the golfer that misses best, usually wins.

The PPGS is the only swing being taught today that is ENTIRELY based on physics and physiology. It's the scientific swing, if you will. The reason why this swing is so popular with golfers who have played through pain is because it allows them to enjoy the game again, without having to worry... more

Whenever a golfer has an issue with pulling the ball, it's usually a sign that his or her alignment is slightly off. However, it's surprising how many students of mine insist that their alignment is perfect, when it really isn't.

Today's video is all about alignment and the direct correlation it has with your finish. If you are having any sort of trouble getting to a correct finish, the problem may be rooted in your setup.

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?

Finding the right tempo for your golf swing can be a tough process. Some golfers swing faster than others, while others tend to swing slower. There's no right or wrong way, it just depends on what type of person and golfer you are.

The Peak Performance Golf Swing is all about lift. But, if you lift too much, you could throw yourself out of dynamic balance and start chopping and topping the ball. Your head has to stay still. If it starts lifting up, that means your hands are getting too far above your head. So, how do you... more

The key to having perfect posture is being in an athletically ready position with actively engaged muscles. The setup determines the motion, so your setup better be perfect!
