It's a big week for golf, as The PLAYERS Championship has come to be known as "the 5th major." Many of the top players in the world are at famed TPC Sawgrass in Florida trying to become the next PLAYERS champion.
I'll be watching this weekend to see which players find themselves in contention when it comes down to the back nine on Sunday. It's very interesting to see the growth of vertical swingers on both the PGA TOUR and the LPGA TOUR. I think Surgites are beginning to notice it as well because I've been getting a lot of messages asking if certain players are using elements of the PPGS.
Here is one of the messages I received regarding this issue:
For a good while I have the impression that [Keegan Bradley] is playing the PPGS. Especially the backswing looks a lot like our swing. He is not playing a 3/4 swing but it looks excellent fom behind. His follow through looks still like a rotational swing. What are your thoughts on KB's swing?
Swing it Vertical,
Keegan does use a vertical swing, yet he swings quite a bit past 3/4 in his backswing. His forward swing and finish also look pretty rotational. But, it just goes to show that not only are more pros experimenting with vertical swings, but that the Surge Nation is taking notice!
It's our job to spread the word about the Peak Performance Golf Swing and why it's the most body-friendly swing being taught today. When I get emails and messages like this, it makes me happy because it means you are all understanding the benefits of this swing.
The thing to remember is that we want to be vertical on both sides, especially the forward swing to the T-finish because the ball goes where your forward swing goes. You don’t hit the ball with your backswing, so make sure your forward swing is just as vertical!
