Many amateur golfers don't realize that their grip is too weak. They get in the habit of holding the club too loosely, which can cause the clubhead to turn at impact. This can lead to your ball going a direction you did not intend.
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.
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
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
If you're at all confused by the title of today's video, I'm not actually talking about a 1 iron. Most golfers (even professionals) do not carry 1 irons in their bags anymore. Heck, most of them don't even carry 2 irons. Regardless, what I'm referring to today is a set of irons that all have the... more
I'm going to keep today's written description short. That's because I think the story I'm going to tell you is much better when you hear it directly from me instead of reading it.
Doc Griffin provided his recap of our Australia trip a couple of weeks ago, so it inspired me to do the same. Whereas Doc discussed the new year and scheduling some future schools, I'm going to talk about what I saw at each of our golf schools down under.
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!
Recently, there was a request sent my way to see the Peak Performance Golf Swing in slow motion. Peter Bausek thinks that seeing some slow motion swings would help him understand the PPGS a little better. Unfortunately, I can't give you a true slow motion daily video because it's a one man show... more
Today I'm going to share some stories that have been sent in over the last couple months. They all have to do with golfers who have found success after switching to the Peak Performance Golf Swing.
I'm going to keep today's description short and sweet. The video you're going to watch will simply tell you exactly why the Peak Performance Golf Swing works. If you've ever wondered what makes this swing so easy to implement and why it leads to so much success for so many golfers, you'll get... more
Because being a vertical swinger means you're in the minority, you've probably been offered a lot of advice about how to improve your golf game. Have other golfers told you that your backswing needs to go to parallel or that you need to turn more to see improvement? I'll bet they have, but that... more
Every now and again, I get a question from a Surgite that asks me to review a particular golf training aid. With so many on the market (especially on the internet), it's easy to wonder whether or not they can help your golf swing.
Whenever someone writes in to say they've switched to the Peak Performance Golf Swing, it brings me great pleasure. But, it pleases me even more when that person says they're finally finding success on the golf course because of this swing.
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's video covers parts of the setup and the swing. Ball position is often overlooked, especially when using the Peak Performance Golf Swing. Because we have flared feet in the setup, our ball position is based on our heels, not our toes.
Being a good ball striker means you can consistently hit the ball at your intended target time and time again. It's about repeating shots, splitting fairways, and hitting greens. DJ has always been one of the better ball strikers on the PGA TOUR, and it's because he uses the Peak Performance... more
As I've said many times before, the ball doesn't know who is swinging the club. That means that the basics of the Peak Performance Golf Swing are the same for everyone. That includes right handed golfers and left handed golfers, male or female.
Your hands are what connect you to your golf club, which means your grip plays an extremely important role in the success or failure of your ball striking. I always state that your palms must be perpendicular to the ground throughout the swing, which leads to what I call the 3 P, prayer position... more
Rotational swingers swing around their bodies and get the club laid off. They swing into what I call the "sacred burial ground." You can stand in it, but if you swing in it, you're dead! Because the club gets laid off, it becomes a heavy club. It's a lot easier to swing a light club than a heavy... more
In honor of our country's independence day, I'm going to talk about the greatest American golfer that has ever played the game. Jack Nicklaus won more majors than any other golfer and was at the top of the game for decades.
A month ago, I published a video that responded to many questions I had been receiving regarding Inbee Park's golf swing.
The Peak Performance Golf Swing is the only body friendly golf swing being taught today. That declaration is not based on opinion, it's based on scientific fact. Today, I want to give you a little background on the evolution of the PPGS and why I know it's the best way to play golf.
Ricky Potts is the Google+ Golf Community Moderator and hosts "Friday Foursome" which features important people in the game of golf. Today, Don was featured on the hangout session and stole the show! Here's what Ricky had to say following the show:
