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.

"Poptarting" is a term I like to use when describing how to swing up to the T-finish position after impact. I want you to stand up as fast as possible after making contact with the ball, just like a pop tart pops up out of a toaster when it's done cooking! Using your neck muscles is a good way... more

There are many golf instructors today that claim they teach a body-friendly golf swing. "Body-friendly" is a really great term, but I'm continuing to see it misused far too frequently.

Before I went under the knife, I tried to shoot as many short videos as I could. That's because the questions just keep rolling in from the Surge Nation. Today, I'm going to share a revelation that a student of mine had at one of my golf schools he attended.

The Golf Channel recently aired a documentary about Mr. Arnold Palmer, one of the greatest golfers of all time. It aired after the 2014 Masters tournament, so I hope that many in the Surge Nation were able to catch it.

By now I'm sure you've heard that the brutal winter took it's toll on Augusta National. Ike's tree, famously known for being one of former President Dwight D. Eisenhower's biggest pet peeves, is now gone.

I recently received a long letter from Max about swinging a driver. He's been watching videos of DJ swinging the club and he noticed that DJ was swinging deeper than what I teach.

Today, I'm going to review two superb golf books that I recommend everyone should read. What's really cool about the two authors is that they're both dedicated Surgites!

I went to work with DJ while he was going through the finals trying to secure his PGA TOUR card for next year. It was another great year of ball striking for DJ, he just had some trouble on the greens with the flat stick. I thought I'd take time and review what we've been working on for... more

The PGA TOUR is home to the best golfers in the world. But even the best players can sometimes struggle at certain points in their career. My son, DJ, was a fully exempt player on the PGA TOUR for nearly a decade, and I couldn't be prouder of him for it.

Today I want to discuss the relationship between timing and tempo. Some golfers may confuse one with the other, but in actuality, they must work as a team.

After answering many of your questions here on the daily video blog, I'll often receive follow up responses. Many Surgites say thank you for taking the time to discuss the particular issues they wrote in about while others like to hit me with other questions.
