My Progress w/Overspeed Training Using SuperSpeedGolf

If I could do them in warm conditions, I would. My wife asked me why was doing them last night when it was so cold and I told her because I hadn't done them in like 5 days due to the snow and I want to keep increasing my clubhead speed! She didnt get it :-P

Yeah, I was headed for the range last night in the cold and rain and my daughter simply stated “Uhm, ok...you be you...” 🤪

So, I went to the back and played drums between SS sessions. 😂

Plus, the last time I went in those conditions, all three other players and I huddled under the canopied mats for warmth while the one employee at the range impatiently waited for us to all finish. 😁

I did my swings yesterday and it was in the mid 20s outside and I surprisingly managed to tie my my PR on the step through with the green club at 133mph, and break a PR on the step through with my red club at 120mph Only thing I noticed about the cold was my hand that didnt have a glove on got pretty cold but other than that I didnt seem to notice any decrease in speed or timing. 

 

20s? That means add 5 mph to CHS! 😜

I've never seen the point in caring about that stuff. I measure with the green club at the beginning and at the end. Best of those three to five swings.

That's all I measure. I don't even look at the numbers lefty, because I've turned around on the mat and I'm facing the other direction.

That's dedication!  I really do not know if the regimen advocated by the manufacturer has any real basis for strict adherence to their protocols, but I suppose does lend justification for their marketing of the three different weights in the clubs. From what I gather, they maintain that the exponential increase through the exercises is necessary for optimum results. In any event, whatever steps one takes should be somewhat beneficial (or not).  I still would exercise caution and make sure adequate warm up is taken to minimize potential injury.

This is why you don't want to use too much weight either. Plus, it throws off your swing and defeats the purpose of the SS training. It's a lot more scientific than just swinging a heavy weight. Albeit, empirically derived.

I'm not advocating this without planning on purchasing the program, but you can possibly download the protocols or watch youtube videos of people using it.

Went to a new indoor facility that opened up near me today for a Callaway demo day. Got to hit the Epic Flash using a Foresight launch monitor. 

I was blown away by the numbers I saw.

Before SuperSpeed I was around 100mph clubhead speed, now it looks like I'm up a solid 8-10 mph clubhead speed in 2.5 months of following their protocol

It didnt display the clubhead speed, but it did show ball speed and carry among other things. My best was a 163mph ball speed, and a 280 yard carry, which would be 108 mph clubhead speed if smash factor was 1.5, 110 mph clubhead speed at 1.47 smash factor, and 112 mph clubhead speed at 1.45 smash factor.

My average carry was right around 265, which is by far the longest I have ever hit the ball on a consistent basis. My average carry was further than my average total distance on GameGolf, and I definitely contribute the swing speed gains to SuperSpeed golf.

Here are the numbers of my two furthest drives

What is the name of this place? 

Its called "The Range" and it's in Dublin. Really nice place, has roughly 10-12 launch monitors both Trackman and Foresight and a putting green.

Super. This is on my way home from work. Looks like you can do $25 for an hour. What's this place like? Have you used the short game area?

Its nice. Today was my first time going and I just went for the demo day, but I will be going back one night this week for an hour session.

Tees sit right into the hitting area, they had Taylormade balls you can use, and each hitting area has a projection screen you hit into, you can either play a course during your hour or just hit onto a simulated range.

I did do some putts today, the green is probably 30 feet long or so and has maybe 5 or 6 holes cut in it, and theres some flat areas and slopes of all directions too.

They recommend calling ahead at least a day or two to reserve a stall, they said weeknight evenings are their busiest time.

I contribute way more of the results to SuperSpeed golf than the new club itself, but that being said I do think I need a new clubhead now of lower loft, that club I hit was 9 degrees and my current M2 is 12 which is what I was fit into back when I swung slower and had a negative AoA.

Let's stick to the topic here please. It's not the club fitting or the facility.

I do exactly the same thing.  Green club, measure speed at the beginning and end of the protocol with your regular swing.

Don't complicate life.

Doing the protocol when you are supposed to swing as aggressively as you can, do you worry about what your feet are doing or do you just swing as aggressive as you can, not caring about any kind of swing mechanics at all? For instance, do you try to swing within reason so that your feet don't move around any more than they would in your normal golf swing?  This is aside from the stepping part of the protocol.

They might spin out or something a little more than usual, but otherwise, no, it's about generating speed, not doing anything "mechanical."

Great, That's how we have been doing it. I just wanted to make sure we weren't doing something incorrectly.

What do you all do for warm-up? I am finding it hard to get loose and warm with the temps outside. I do my usual stretching and active swings to get loose. I also do the stuff in the getting started video.

I just make a few normal swings. Hit ten, twelve balls or something.

But indoors at Golf Evolution it's 60° or so.

    • We got rained out on Tuesday last year, so we got tickets this year.
    • Waiting for summer break to be over...
    • They'll also continue to operate and grow. Heck, if they get Cam Smith, their "monopoly" argument takes a hit. Which is probably not looked upon as "great" either. I'm not saying it's a big hit, but I imagine gaming the system like this aren't even viewed entirely neutrally.
    • You can place something under the front of that mat so when a ball drops down it bounces backwards into the net. Maybe a pool noodle. Topped balls will destroy that pool noodle though. "A friend" told me that... Also, I don't know how many balls you plan on hitting, but think about getting a pre-net to hang in front of the main net. I blew a hole through mine in less than a year. My replacement net has lasted over 3 years using small nets hanging in front.
    • Yes.  His ball's location was not known.  If we had gone back, I would have had to drop where he had hit from and he would have had to find his ball (which may have been in the water).  He would have possibly had to deal with a lost ball and hitting the wrong ball. I sort of did a rough calculation in my head.  Go back, find the spot, probably hit the green and lie 4 with 2 putts for a six.  Maybe a 5 or 7.  Top prize is a $100 gift certificate.  Plus, if I went back, #4 would probably go back, too.  That would have created a real log jam.  Better to take the medicine, play on, have a good story of what NOT to do.
