Today I'm going to talk about one of the great players on the PGA TOUR right now, Matt Kuchar. Matt has seen a remarkable turnaround in his career the last few years, and has become a fan favorite in the process. So what has been the secret to his success?
Matt has a very unique swing. It's one that gets talked about a lot and one he spends a lot of time perfecting. He has certainly mastered it though, as his results clearly show. I was asked to give my opinion on Matt's swing today, so I'll explain the difference between the PPGS and rotational swings like the ones many professionals use out on tour today.
Thanks for your videos - much appreciated. I am NOT trying to be "negative" on your teaching the upright swing, but more asking for your comments. Matt Kuchar changed his swing to the really "flat and behind" swing, which (to my understanding) is complete OPPOSITE swing to your teaching. This swing change COMPLETELY saved and revived his carrier, to the point that he became one of the best golfers in the World. Any comments ?
Many thanks and cheers.
Matt Kuchar is certainly one of the best players in the world. It's true he went through a career revival after perfecting his new, flatter swing. Nevertheless, I still worry about his ability to have a long career if he continues to use that swing. I hope that he is able to stay healthy and have a long career because when he is playing, the game of golf and the PGA TOUR are that much better.
The PPGS works in harmony with gravity. We swing a vertical club, which is a light club. Matt swings around his body, which creates a very heavy club. That's why it's so difficult to maintain that type of swing. It's that kind of flatter swing that is hard to master and even harder to remember. Simply put, the Peak Performance Golf Swing is just an easier swing.
Matt Kuchar is a great guy, a pure gentleman, great father, and a great PGA professional. I've known him for many years as he and DJ have battled on the course many times, dating back to their collegiate days. He figured out something that's working for him and I hope he has continued success. My only concern is the longevity aspect because his swing includes a high degree of stress on the body.
If you want longevity, it's the PPGS for you.
Keep it vertical!
