When it comes to increasing a golfer’s length off the tee, there is only really one number that matters...ball speed.  Once you have achieved the ball speed you want, then it is all about optimizing the launch angle etc that will maximize the distance for you off the tee.

Recruit PKB: Challenge Yourself

By | October 31st, 2018|Categories: Player Performance Articles|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

"If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you" This is just one of the many great quotes about the necessary impact of facing challenges. This is quite possibly one of the most truthful quotes you can find about life. You can also easily apply it to golf and your development as a player. I could sit and write for hours about this quote but I will keep it to [...]

PerformPKB: A Professional Golfer Likes a Challenge – Here’s Why

By | September 18th, 2018|Categories: Physical Performance Articles|Tags: , |

When everyone else is doing one thing and you believe in something different, do you have the courage to challenge everyone else, stick to your belief, and fight for it? Seriously, think about the last time you were in a situation where everyone agreed on one idea, activity, or way of doing things and you didn’t necessarily agree. Did you go along with everyone else or did you challenge them? [...]

PerformPKB: Rise Above the Competition by Trying Something New

By | August 23rd, 2018|Categories: Physical Performance Articles|

The best note to remember in any competitive setting is that there is a big difference between losing and failing.  In fact, we want to strive to fail because this means we are learning from pushing our boundaries.  Part of daring to be different requires you to try new things as part of your personal growth towards whatever your personal goals are. This can apply to achievement in sports, business, [...]

RecruitPKB: Trying Out Competitive Golf Again

By | August 16th, 2018|Categories: Player Performance Articles|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |

For those who may follow my social media (@bjacksongolf) you probably saw that I decided to play some competitive golf again for the first time in almost 8 years. My last full season was in 2009 where I played 11 LPGA Tour events that year and the rest on the Symetra Tour, then I only played a handful of events on the Symetra Tour in 2010 and officially gave up [...]

PerformPKB: Train Slow to Swing Fast

By | August 10th, 2018|Categories: Physical Performance Articles|

*As seen in GOLFWRX* You are probably reading this article because the title made zero sense to you when you read it.  You are probably thinking, “Slow training makes me go fast? Everyone knows you have to train fast if you want to go fast. We have all seen SuperSpeed Golf’s commercials. This guy is an idiot.” With that rationale, not sure I can blame you! If you’re a golfer [...]

PerformPKB: Training Without Time

By | July 25th, 2018|Categories: Physical Performance Articles|

The secret to successful long term development, improvement, and health in the game of golf is understanding that you only have a finite number of hours to work on your game to get better.  You have to prioritize what is important holistically as a golfer and make the time for those elements. Lessons, practice, equipment education, and fitness are all critical parts of the formula for golfers.  Unfortunately, the fact [...]

PerformPKB: #1 Thing College Golf Coaches Do to Hurt Their Teams’ Scores and Speed

By | July 13th, 2018|Categories: Physical Performance Articles|

I have been getting a lot of questions, particularly from collegiate golfers, asking about the benefits of running during the in season. This has always and will continue to be one of the biggest shocks to me.  The short of it is this: a lot of running in season is perhaps the most counter intuitive training that a golfer can do on multiple levels. Asking for Injuries The first reason [...]

No matter how good of a short game you may have, it never hurts to work on basic fundamentals. This ladder drill is a great way to work on consistency with your chipping. If you can't consistently land the golf ball where you want to on the green then you are keeping yourself from maximizing your potential. There are several different ways to keep the ladder drill engaging and creative. [...]

PerformPKB: Strength Training Will Destroy Your Game -True or False?

By | June 27th, 2018|Categories: Physical Performance Articles|

If you’ve been playing the game for long, you’ve probably been told that strength training for golfers will get you bulky, restrict your mobility and can even get you hurt so that you can’t play the game.  But how true is this argument? This is a contested topic on many media platforms and even among coaches and golfers themselves. The curious part of this is that the people having the [...]

PerformPKB: Range Practice is Hurting You – Do This Instead

By | June 13th, 2018|Categories: Physical Performance Articles|

The driving range is the biggest barrier to a golfer's success.  Period.  It is a place where quantity is king, and quality is the court jester.  Repeating swing after swing in a blocked practice format actually breeds repetitive injuries and ends careers.  Minimal carry over onto the course from the range is what keeps handicaps and frustrations high, while contributing to the high number of injuries that we see on [...]
