Master one of the most critical movements in the Peak Performance Golf Swing - The Bump. The bump is a small lateral shift in the hips that is a part of the chain reaction of events that leads to square and solid ball striking. But this small movement is often a difficulty for students. Some students don't perform the bump at all, while others bump too much.

After a few schools this year, I recorded this video to provide a drill to help you Master the Bump!
