Hello Surge Nation! Have the golf courses been kind to you so far this summer? I'd be willing to bet that some of you just hesitated when thinking about the answer, which means you're probably not entirely enamored with the current state of your golf game. It probably doesn't help seeing Rory McIlroy cruising to the career grand slam either. But, there is good news. It's still July, which means you've got plenty of time to improve!
Because I want to see you shoot your lowest scores of the year, I'm going to talk about the definition of a true vertical swing. There may be other golf instructors out there who claim to teach a vertical swing. But, I would challenge each and every one of them to look at my swing to see what really classifies as vertical.
I've enlisted my old friend (the dictionary) to help me explain exactly what "vertical" means, purely from a vocabulary standpoint. As you'll see in the video, the definition takes me on a meandering path of similar terms. These are the definintions in which I call upon when I teach the Peak Performance Golf Swing.
Along with today's lesson, I want to remind you that The Champions Tour is a great resource to watch some truly great vertical swingers. Tom Watson is one of the best examples I can think of. If you have any questions about the longevity of a vertical golf swing, just take a look at Mr. Watson's finish at last week's British Open. Pretty good for a 64 year old!
Keep it vertical!
