Going to see a pro, haven’t been to one in a while...but this is really getting bad...seems like the more comfortable I get swinging this club, the worse my ball speed 😜

Get checked out. My ball speed is around 139 with a 93 swing speed.

This looks very much like striking issues, or if you're hitting into a net with your mevo you may want to check the ball that you're hitting because after a while, balls will start to crack and you may not see it initially.  I see this all the time when I practice with my gc2. 

You should be getting a lot more ball speed than that at your club head speed.  I'm generally around 155-162 ball speed with driver and I don't swing much faster than you.  My 6i is generally around 124-128 ball speed (2011 Nike VR TW irons).  

You spoke about height in another thread-- with driver you want to get about 40* descent angle for max carry and rollout.  But right now, you gotta strike it better!

If the Mevo is too close to the driver it will tend to over-rate clubhead speed. Put it 8-9' behind, even 10' maybe.

That’s exactly where I put it... 8’-9’.

I’ve actually tried all distances from about 6’ to 10’ and they didn’t seem that different. Maybe 1mph...?

Anyway, I’ve signed up for a lesson... hope it goes well.

Since this is your Member Swing topic, a video would help.

With the Mevo sitting 12 feet behind the tee. Here are my readings.

The highlighted shot hit the bin 266 yards away about 8 seconds after my shot... “ponnnng” 😂

One of the other players (A low single digit player) saw my first 3 readings and was like “How can I hit farther than you?” He got on my Mevo and his best swings were 80mph with a carry up to 190. We could see his balls landing clearly past the 212 yard hill marked at 212 and ranged within a yard to the flag. I told them the Mevo is great for tracking improvement and such but not very accurate at all.

My Canadian ex-pro long drive friend was swearing he was hitting the balls perfectly and never saw any drive above 306 yards even though his shots were landing 360 yards into one or two the fairways behind the fence over water. The way we could tell was people dispersing at their second shots.

Yeah, going to go with my Mevo not being accurate in absolute terms... 😁

Still like using it though. Every now and then some cocky hitter goes to my range I’ll ask him if he wants to get “Mevoed” only to look disappointed he only hits 10-20% shorter than he thought! And swears he has an over 100mph swing speed only to see 90mph 😂😂😂

These were with my shiny new M6... Loving it!

Very light prevailing breeze into our faces... 68F 700 feet

Is your range downhill or something? Because the Mevo is going to give the flat carry yardage.

Pretty level. Maybe 10-15 feet overall downhill? It’s got lots of little hills where they plant the flags.

What's the address of the range?

As in, the street address?

That range is only about 250 yards maximum distance. This is a 235-yard shot:

I'm not sure I'd trust any signs at that range.
