George Gankas (@georgegankasgolf), one of our swing mentors, is launching his golf instruction site in two days. We've seen and taken lessons from lots of coaches, and this guy is the definition a golf genius. We highly recommend pre-enrolling at Georgegankas.golf for premier golf content. #georgegankas #georgegankasgolf @jgilmergolf @jledgolf

For the golf nerds out there ๐Ÿค“This model is used to identify meaningful associations between the peak golfer-ground interaction force and moment parameters and maximum clubhead speed. In simple terms, the ground forces you create play a direct role in determining your clubhead speed ๐Ÿƒ Model supplied by @chriscomogolf & Dr. Ki Hoon Han #golfupgrades

One of my favorite illustrations by @paul.chek. Correct postural alignment allows us to move effeciently and helps to prevent injury. This figure shows how the spine curves in the lumbar region and thoracic spine when the pelvis is incorrectly tilted (forward/anteriorly). We see this every week with new students. Check your posture in the mirror FIRST if you have chronic back pain ๐Ÿ”งโ›ณ๏ธ ๐Ÿ“ธ: "Whole in One Golf Conditioning" Paul Chek #golfupgrades

Angel W. - Before Vs. After

Before vs. After ๐ŸŒ๐ŸฝUnderstanding that (in the full swing) power comes from the ground up is one of the first things I like to teach โ€” it is very common for beginners to hang back with their weight pressure and use the arms for speed.

Jason Day / Rory Mcilroy - Face On Driver View. Can you spot any similarities? Watch closely how both of these player leverage the ground for explosive power ๐Ÿ’ฃ #jasonday #rory #mcilroy

Brief explanation to student on his slice -in this case, the lead (left here) wrist extended too early and cause the player to hit a weak slice (swipe). An exaggerated feel for the lead wrist using a frisbee analogy resonated wellโ€” the feeling of the wrist going from flexion (bowed) to extension (cupped) helped this player dramatically. Another great feel that exhibits the wrist going from flexion into extension is using the lead wrist to "backhand slap" ๐Ÿ› ๐Ÿƒ

One of my favorite shallowing drills for kids inspired by @georgegankasgolf - goal here is to teach depth in backswing and how to produce speed through shallowing the shaft. While this is an advanced drill, it's very important to simplify for junior golfers ๐ŸŒ๏ธ๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ #golfupgrades

1 year ago today, Golf Upgrades was established as a legal entity (can anyone guess why I chose 09/18 ๐Ÿ˜Š?). In the last year we have partnered with 3 non-profits, donated over $1300 dollars directly to various charities, and amassed over 70 loyal online/private students. While so much has changed, our mission remains the same. Our goal is to design golf lessons & products to improve your golf and help (re)meet a basic human need: growth. ๐Ÿƒ Thank you to all who continue to support us and cheers to the future ahead.

Our Story

Golf Upgrades is a golfer-owned-and-run company, based in San Diego, California. After numerous lessons and some positive results -- we decided to grow the game of golf by drastically simplifying the learning process. Golf Upgrades is an analytical approach to golf instructionโ€“ we use data and innovative processes to help others learn in a fun and efficient way. We help others learn at an extremely fast rate; a huge problem with golf instruction today is that it takes too long for beginners to learn the basics and many become discouraged and quit. I am most proud of the results I am able to bring our customersโ€“ seeing them understand and achieve is what drives us. Our focus is on growth; I have dedicated a percentage of all profits to be donated to various charities. Our customers earn โ€œGP* (Growth Points) for volunteering, donating blood, or by becoming a big/little for the SD Bigs Foundation.
