Today I'm going to provide you with a drill that I think makes the concept of the bump much easier to grasp. One of the biggest issues I see with regards to the transition is that golfers either don't bump at all or they're bumping way too much.

Today I'm going to explain exactly why the Peak Performance Golf Swing is the only swing you should be using. Not only is the PPGS the easiest swing on the body, but it's also the only swing that's based entirely on fact.

If you find yourself topping the ball more often than not, there's a strong likelihood that you aren't maintaining the levelness in your swing. It all starts with the knees. The knees are the bees...move them too much and you're going to get stung.

Having proper balance is obviously very important in the game of golf. But, knowing how to maintain perfect balance isn't always quite so obvious. I've actually been experiencing some issues with staying grounded throughout the swing, so I thought if it can happen to me, it can most likely... more

No matter how good you are at playing golf, you've still got to be able to fine tune your setup and swing. Most problems in your swing are directly related to your setup, so it's important that you work on both on a consistent basis.

Randy Wolf has been a student of mine for quite some time. He considers himself a visual learner, so he sent me an interesting request for one of my backyard daily videos. Randy asked if I could place multiple alignment sticks on the ground as well as one sticking out of the end of my club.

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.

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

If you don't know where the butt of your club points throughout your swing, you need to start taking notice. If it's pointing anywhere towards your aiming line, your swing is much too flat and laid off, which means you're probably in the sacred burial ground.

Whenever you find yourself putting for birdie, it's good to have a pendulum stroke that won't crack under the pressure. The same thought process or visualization can be used for your full swing too. This is a tip that Dave Pennell sent in recently.

Today's question has to do with tempo and timing. These are actually two different aspects that must work together to build consistency. Whether you are an aggressive player who likes to play fast or a slower player who grinds on every shot, your routine must remain the same.

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.

If you have any of my instructional videos or manuals, then you've heard me talk about my 5 secrets and rules of the Peak Performance Golf Swing. My daily video blog offers a lot of good material regarding the swing, but it's merely a platform to spread the word of the PPGS and to address... more

Today's question wasn't accompanied by a name, but it's a really good topic that I want to go over anyway. It has to do with the left arm position and the proper mechanics of the elbows during the forward upswing (FUS).

I received two emails from a gentleman named Walt who is convinced that I cock my wrists during the swing. I got these emails awhile ago, but wanted to wait until the right time to release the video.

Not everyone sees each daily video I publish, so sometimes questions get asked that have already been covered in the past. For whatever reason, there's a question that keeps popping up on the blogs and in golf schools about which hand is the dominant hand.

One of the big misses that amateurs have to fight is what I like to call the banana ball. This is usually when a golfer is having trouble with slicing the ball from left to right (for a right handed golfer). One of the reasons this happens quite often among amateur players is because they have... more

Some golfers like to ground their club behind the ball before they swing. Others prefer to hover just off the ground. Personal preference can come into play here, but the determining factor should be how consistently you hit the ball. Fred Soobhany has found great success using the Peak... more

If you've got a flawless Peak Performance Golf Swing setup and swing, it means your head is nearly motionless in the takeaway and up to the top of the backswing. But, if your head is moving like Dom "Guido" Bianco said his was, it means you're probably having some problems.

Sometimes men and women who have played other sports their whole life have difficulty switching to a golf swing. But, that shouldn't be the case at all. Sports like bowling and baseball involve similar movements and so the transition alone shouldn't be a deterrent.

A flying right elbow is a common term that people use in golf. But, it's typically thought of as a bad thing and some instructors advocate that the elbows should remain in close to your body. Randy Miller sent in a question about flying right and left elbows.

Hello Surgites! Today's date is pretty meaningful to me. It's my birthday and I've had a lot of fun sharing laughs with family and friends but I still wanted to bring you a daily lesson. I get so much enjoyment out of helping you all become better golfers so I had to make sure I published a... more

If you don't feel confident with a wedge in your hands, your short game and ultimately your score will suffer. Lyn Fuller has been chunking his wedges so he sent in a question that was short and to the point.   

Digging deep with wedges? Video lesson that covers this? Could use a fix.

All golfers want to hit the ball on the sweet spot of the clubface. You'll no doubt have the best results if you can consistently hit it there every time. The tricky thing is that most golf clubs today are built with the sweet spot out near the toe of the club. You'll find that's the case with a... more

Nothing gets a round going like a great drive off the first tee right into the middle of the fairway. But, hitting your second shot from the short grass doesn't do much good if you're topping the ball.
