Would you believe 99% of the replies you get? And that goes for pretty much any of the guys talking about swing speed.
That being said, I have though about it (and it is either my number 1 or number 2 program depending on the day). I don't expect 30+mph from any program but 10-15 for someone that hasn't done much speed or specific strength training is likely. The questions is the program pure snake oil (from what I have read/watched the stuff seems solid) or a good collection of the "Standard" training (strength, power, and over/underspeed) for improving your golf swing. I probably would have spend the 50 bucks (if it is total snake oil I will gamble my CC will get me a refund) but the advertisment for the 1 length irons sort of scares me
After researching (check out YouTube videos) and taking part in the Webinar session I opted to sign up.
Specifically, I found the what was shared on YouTube on club head speed and driver spin rate and launch very informative.
Aside from the long game, Jacoob Bowman had some advice of on the short game which resonated quite well with me and that was using your instinct on a chip shot. Basically after getting the "feel" of a club (i.e. 9 iron, 6 iron, whatever you decide will work for you), you use your instinct and determine where you "are and where you want to be" and execute. Without getting hung up on saying absolutely having your 8 iron travel 1/3 of the way and then run 2/3...which is a good way to start, I've felt that your brain (a wonderful computer) will process what is needed to get there...simple. In essence, don't get wrapped up in over analysis (analysis paralysis).
Oddly enough, this little bit of confirmation (short game) is what convinced me to sign up for Swingman (long game).
I will attempt to keep you updated on results. I have already secure my Swing Speed Radar (blue) and baselined my SS, impact points on driver face in relation to trajectory, distance and dispersion.
