What's Your Swing Speed? - Page 11

post #181 of 192

Well I guess I'm a short knocker by most around here, last time on a monitor I had speeds from 92-103 (25 swings about counting all the bad ones) and I think I averaged out to either 98 or 99, I think spin was somewhere between 1800-2400, not real sure on that part. I think carry was somewhere about 230 and average total was about 260.

I went thru a self prescribed swing change a couple of years ago, took me about a season and half. i slowed everything down, stayed on plane and eventually trusted and believed in it. the reward was that my handicap fell big time. My swing speed is now 97-100I don't step on it anymore, i know have a fluid and even tempo, I been accused of falling asleep in my back swing. That said I hit dead straight in the fairway- sometimes never missing a single fairway Works well with my game and handicap.

I used to have 105 -109 only hit it a couple of yards further than today, usually in the right rough and never confident where it was going to end up. spin was high so distance was lost. 1 out of every 4 was a very good drive.

You guys with high swing speeds, great keep swinging, eventually some of you will see the light of its not so far or how fast, its where the ball ends up that counts.

This is true, I also noticed when I throttled back the control returned as long as I'm swinging through and not holding back a follow through.

96?  Me, too.  I used Medicus and it is clocked at 96 today on average.  It should be closer to national average for my group, fortytwelve.

Currently I'm averaging ~110mph with a driver. I'm thinking getting my club on a better swing plane (mainly on my downswing) will improve it, but I'm not complaining about that speed. The PGA Tour average is ~112mph with a driver.

I think in the future I'm going to refrain from posting in these type of threads, after looking at a few videos and I'm not naming anyone specifically because some look possible I can tell there is some fairly gross over estimations on how fast they swing a club. I just find it silly when I get grouped with some guys who say they can do this and that and blah blah  and then a 48 year old knocks it 20 yards by them how quiet they are the rest of the day...enjoy.

I think I averaged about 108 when I was fitted for my driver... However, this was with my big over swing that I am fixing right now.. I not sure how fixing my swing will impact my speed.. In fact from what I was told most Lilly thelat big over swing was probably making me lose speed.. I probably won't be measured again for a long time, but then again I only care about score going forward..
