I have had my club head speed checked by machine twice. (It was at golftech, and the PGA store so I presume the machines are accurate) I got results from like 98-105 with driver. From those results, I thought those numbers would produce the distances I get. But my observed distances are just about at the 110 mark, and if you follow that 110 column down, those are all accurate. Is it possible that I get like an unusual smash factor or something? Does that happen? I'm not fitted or anything.
Possible reasons for the discrepancy include:
1. I am routinely bad at measuring distances. Possible, but pretty unlikely. I am not into lying to myself. I want to improve.
2. The measurements were off at the store. - I do not know why they would want to make me think I swing slow with the club they want to sell me.
3. My swing has improved since then. - Also possible. I practice what I am taught here a lot.
4. Something else.
I suppose it does not matter at the end of the day. My distance estimates are pretty accurate with the clubs and swing I have right now. I'm just curious. And it is an issue of pride in some form. I want to know where I stand, I suppose.
