The game of golf is seeing participation drop all across the world. Golf courses and clubs are struggling to stay open and overall rounds played are way down. What could be the cause of all this? Sure, finances play a big part, and after 2008, many courses were never able to recover while golfers themselves simply couldn't afford to play as much as they once did.
I read an interesting article discussing Bubba Golf, and the impact that Watson will have on the golfing world after being so successful with a homemade swing. Bubba is famous for saying he's never taken a single lesson and that he is entirely self-taught. While it's possible that winning the Masters with no lessons could spark interest for others to pick up the game, I think the way in which golf is currently being taught is the bigger issue.
I believe that golfers are being driven away from the sport because of bad instruction! They've got way too many things going on in their head that they're unable to make a good swing with any sort of consistency. Of course, the fact that the majority of instructors teach a rotational swing doesn't help either.
In order for golf to see a rise in popularity, golfers are going to have to start seeing better success on a more consistent basis. I believe the Peak Performance Golf Swing is the answer. There probably isn't an easier swing to learn than a 3/4 limited turn vertical golf swing, and I think many in the Surge Nation can speak to that!
Keep it vertical!
