Increase Swing Speed Drills

4 posts in this topic

I bought a new set of irons today and was hitting on a simulator at Golfsmith and was swinging a 6 iron. My swing speed was on average about 80mph but I feel like for a 31 year old guy that I should have a faster swing speed like 85 or so. Are there any drills to get a faster swing speed? I know there are some exercises you can do but looking at drills. I'm working on starting the swing with the lower part of my body to increase this but was wondering if anyone has any ideas?

Thanks!

That's about average for a good amateur. You're faster than the LPGA average. 85 would put you at the senior tour average. Unless you're 17-26 or over 60, age doesn't really factor into this as much as skill.

I used to use a club with a fan attached to it to build swing speed.

I admit that the improvements of the before fan and after fan videos are a little bit "exaggerated", but the fan does really work to build swing speed.

I would look at improving Key 2 and 3

The one little thing that worked best for me was learning how to not release early.
