Many amateur golfers don't realize that their grip is too weak. They get in the habit of holding the club too loosely, which can cause the clubhead to turn at impact. This can lead to your ball going a direction you did not intend.

I've been on a personal mission to find the areas that Surgites are struggling with the most. I've already shared a few revelations with you, but I want to keep it going. One of the most common issues I'm currently seeing is with head movement.

Today's video is all about grip. It still amazes me to this day to see so many different ways in which amateur golfers hold a golf club. Especially when it's one of the easier things to control in your swing.

One problem that a lot of amateurs have is picking their heads up during the swing. Instead of maintaining a level head, they pick it up early and lose any hope of hitting a good shot. But, why does this happen? What causes one's head to move during the swing?

No matter how good you are at playing golf, you've still got to be able to fine tune your setup and swing. Most problems in your swing are directly related to your setup, so it's important that you work on both on a consistent basis.

If you want to hit a golf ball straight and with any sort of consistency, you need to have a square club at impact. But, impact isn't the only spot in which the clubface should be square. The setup determines the motion, so your clubface had better be square when you're in your address position... more

A golf instructor should be able to demonstrate the swing he or she teaches with consistent success. Sometimes, because I'm always helping other players with their swings, I forget to take a hard look at my own. Even I have to practice to stay sharp and if I'm not trying to get better, my game... more

For most golfers, alignment is hard enough as it is. But, imagine if you only had one good eye. That's the situation Bob Biancucci is faced with every time he tees it up.

Randy Wolf has been a student of mine for quite some time. He considers himself a visual learner, so he sent me an interesting request for one of my backyard daily videos. Randy asked if I could place multiple alignment sticks on the ground as well as one sticking out of the end of my club.

Sometimes there are little subtleties in our game that we don't even realize because they aren't something we ever stop to think about. For instance, do you know how far away your clubhead is from the ball during your address position?

I was recently asked by a Surgite if there was a way to compensate for hitting pulls and hooks. He's wondering because he's already tried playing around with his stance and he's found only little success.

Some golfers struggle with weight transfer and the transition, often times hitting off their back foot. The real problem can be not knowing what causes this to happen.

I haven't talked about alignment in quite some time so I thought today would be a good day to re-visit the topic. Because 90-95% of all swing problems arise from poor alignment, it's important that you understand how to avoid it!

Recently, there was a request sent my way to see the Peak Performance Golf Swing in slow motion. Peter Bausek thinks that seeing some slow motion swings would help him understand the PPGS a little better. Unfortunately, I can't give you a true slow motion daily video because it's a one man show... more

Your pre-shot routine is important for a variety of different reasons, one of which is your alignment. Everyone has to walk in to the ball before they take a swing, so you must be lined up correctly or else the ball could miss your target drastically.

The inspiration for today's video didn't come from a question submitted to the website. Instead, I'm going to discuss a recent lesson I had with a longtime student from Atlanta, Georgia. Because we don't live as close as we used to, he started taking some lessons from another instructor.

Today's video covers parts of the setup and the swing. Ball position is often overlooked, especially when using the Peak Performance Golf Swing. Because we have flared feet in the setup, our ball position is based on our heels, not our toes.

Your hands are what connect you to your golf club, which means your grip plays an extremely important role in the success or failure of your ball striking. I always state that your palms must be perpendicular to the ground throughout the swing, which leads to what I call the 3 P, prayer position... more

Today's "In Your Own Words" comes from Allen Fischer and has to do with posture. The setup determines the motion, so your posture plays a huge role in the success or failure of each shot.

I'm a right handed golfer, so I always teach in terms of that side of the ball. I understand that there are a lot of left handed golfers in the Surge Nation as well, and I apologize if any of you have ever felt "left" out of the daily lessons.

I recently went over the master setup position of the Peak Performance Golf Swing. Today, I want to focus solely on the left arm position at address.

The master setup position (MSP) is one of the most important elements of the Peak Performance Golf Swing setup. As you move up to the longer clubs and your ball position changes accordingly, you must remember to keep the same MSP.

This is the problem Dave Cassard was having:

I haven't dedicated an entire daily to alignment in awhile, so I thought I'd answer a question on the subject recently sent in by Larry Sandor. He has noticed that he's lining up with his feet open, which has him aimed to the left.

The longer the club, the harder it generally is to hit. That means the driver is most often the toughest club to hit in the bag. It's also the club that's usually used the most off the tee. It sets you up for the rest of the hole, so it's critical that you are able to make solid contact.

Well Surgites, you've heard me say it before. The Peak Performance Golf Swing trademark in the setup is the wide knees outward pressure position. Without it, you won't be able to maintain any sort of consistent vertical swing.
