The key definition of the Peak Performance Golf Swing is that it's a little bit of turn, with a lot of lift. But, just exactly how much lift should there be? Duncan sent in a question about this topic because he felt like his hands were getting too far over his head. He must really be lifting the club, but if he's losing his spine angle, it's doing more harm than good.
He was wondering if there were any short cuts that could help his progression with the PPGS. Unfortunately, the only short cut I can provide is education. Then, it's on you to persevere and work hard to become a better student of the swing.
Along with these daily videos, every position of the setup and swing can be found in our swing manuals. We've even got a mini-manual that fits right in your golf bag. Click here to check it out.
There's no magic pill that can instantly turn you into a phenomenal golfer, but I'll be sure to let you know the minute we develop it! All jokes aside, you want to be able to keep your body quiet so you can swing your arms faster, which will help with power and increasing your distance. To do this, you must maintain the angles of your hips and spine.
Using wide knees with outward pressure will help cut down on your turn, while keeping the hips and spine level. If you want to make a good swing, you have to stay relatively level so you can return the club back to where it started.
If you swing past the point of being level, you're going to start getting out of balance and you'll most likely start leaning forward.
Find the point that gives you optimum lift without ever losing your spine angle, and that will tell you how much lift it takes.
Keep it vertical!
