Do not blindly trust the source of advice. Today I talk about something a tour pro said as advice in a magazine, it was so bad I had to record this video about it. You have to remember that most golf instruction you are going to read or watch in mainstream golf is going to not be in tune with the PPGS. This bad piece of advice is about head... Read More

"Do we clear our hips like a rotational swinger," asks a reader? No, not exactly. The key to starting the swing is the Bump.
