Whats your Avg Drive swing speed?

post #1 of 45
Thread Starter 

Looking to see what everyones swing speed is on average with the big stick.

I am 5'10 170lbs and according to my local golf equipment dealer and they clocked me regularly between 95-105. Post your averages here!

90 - 93 when I was fitted this spring.  I am 5'10" and 52 years old.

Just slightly faster than Bubba Watson. a1_smile.gif

True but hence the name I probably try and swing a lot harder, and should slow down to 115 or so

Like to get more speed but based on Trackman I'm around 104 M.P.H. SInce everyone seems to be putting their age and size I'm 20 years old 5'7" 145 pounds. I had a Bridgestone ball fitting track me at 109 MPH but when I went to the Trackman immediately after I was back at around 104. I've also had other radars get me in the 120s (no freaking way!).

My fastest on a Trackman when I was doing long drive was 139mph, although mostly on the golf course I'll play around the Tour average of 111-112 mph.

The Tour Trackman average ranges from 104 (David Toms) to 125 (Bubba Watson).  The LPGA average is 94.  A lot of amateur women/seniors I train go around 60-85 mph.  Most amateur men I work with are 85-95.

Jamie Sadlowski, 2-time RE/MAX World Long Drive Champion regularly runs in the mid-140s at Worlds.  Joe Miller, 2010 Champ, and a few other guys have been over 150!

 

Got some more averages, numbers, and some swing speed training programs here for anyone who wants to get faster.  PM me if you have any questions or anything.

Mate, just curious....we're both almost the same built and height......what's your driving distance like with that swing speed ?

My swing speed is around 95 average, and I carry my driver around 210,215....

6'1" 210lbs (168lbs lean muscle) 

 

I've seen my swing speed anywhere from 112-117 mph 

 

Though i think i can probably get faster, which i am going to try to do. I need to really work on my flexibility, i don't get nearly as good hand height in my backswing, and my hip muscles are week. Yea, i haven't topped out yet. Being at 20% body fat, i have some room to gain some more muscle and improve my golf game.

6'4" 205 - 117 mph of cataclysmic and wanton destruction

6-1 35 years old. 195lbs

Average around 95 but occasionally can get up to 110 when things are clicking.

Going to be putting a lot of time in the offseason to work on flexibility, rhythm,and lag. I can hit my irons a mile but always struggle with lag with all my woods. It's all about that whipping action that I am sure some of you high speed guys are good at.

145lbs

 

just got back from the golf store and was only averaging 78 mph. Gonna have to do some SERIOUS work to figure out what I'm doing wrong. Pretty sure there are some mechanical/sequential things I need to work out, + add some flexibility....

post #16 of 45

97 mph

post #17 of 45

Pretty sure it was 104-107 on the trackman when I was fitted for my new driver toward the end of the summer.

 

I'm 48 and am sure I used to swing a lot faster when I was 28. d2_doh.gif

 

Of course, I used to do a lot of things faster when I was 28.

42 y/o, 5' 10', 163#.  Driver SS is between 90-95.  Playing at 5400' elevation helps to get the most total distance out of that swing!
