One of the easiest ways to spot a PPGS golfer is to look at the position of their feet in the setup. If they're set up correctly, you will see that each foot is flared out instead of pointing straight out in front of them.

Having flared feet allows you to have proper knee movement that's important for a vertical golf swing. As you should already know, everything about the Peak Performance Golf Swing is designed to keep your body from being in any pain or discomfort throughout the entirety of the swing.

Remember that your knees are your levelers and stabilizers. They don't work against eachother, they work together. Our lateral motion is much more stable compared to all other swings being taught today and it's because of our flared feet and knee position throughout the swing that allows us to accomplish a limited turn.

Check out the video for a visual demonstration of flared feet and stable knees.

Keep it vertical!
