My Progress w/Overspeed Training Using SuperSpeedGolf

I'm thinking this will be a very productive winter for me.   

I just signed up for Winter league at my local indoor facility.   With that I get 9 holes of "League golf" with unlimited warmup time.   and an hour practice any other day of the week.   
I will be using the Superspeed both in my league warmup and on my practice day.   

Right now, my driver speed sits pretty consistently between 104-107.   Really hoping to add 5 mph this winter.   109-112 would make a pretty big difference.  
(don't get me wrong, getting it out there 270 is nice, but I would find a lot more wedges in my hands and, moreso, have a chance at a lot more par 5 greens in two if I could touch 300 every now and then.)

Additionally, I just ordered a 24 foot putting mat for my basement.  If I can get good use out of that all winter, I really think I can dial in lag put and chipping distances, which could shave a few strokes per round.

After getting this for Christmas, I started this tonight. Driver swing speed is currently 102-105 mph. I really would like to get to 115, but that's probably unlikely. 110 would be fine.

The training was interesting. I need to take less time between swings, I think. I also need to up the effort a bit more. Lefty swings are interesting. My lefty swing is not good, haha.

No updates here in a while.  How is everyone doing with this?  
 

i started it back up at Thanksgiving.  I have stuck to the intro protocol until this week.  With the sticks I only picked up 2-3 mph.  I was disappointed.  I noticed though that along with my Superspeed beginning numbers I also put down my actual numbers in our simulator.  I hit in the sim again and my clubhead speed was up 4-5 mph, ball speed was up 5-6 mph which translates to a sizeable distance gain.   Very pleased!

I started again in the first bit of January.

I have no excuse, but have been slacking.  I'm in a new house, I have something resembling a backyard (it's mostly dirt with a concrete loggia), plus my indoor room is big enough to swing a 6-iron (I haven't tried anything higher).  The problem is, the times that I often can do it are either really early morning or really late evening and my stupid brain wonders if the neighbors will think I'm hitting golf balls at them.  I need to just do it and if they ask I can explain I'm swinging without a ball.  Or I can figure out if my indoor room is large enough to swing them (the sticks, not the neighbors) in.

It got cold out and I was tired of doing the routine in the dark.

Don’t swing them inside. You might limit yourself.

Thanks.  I'll avoid that.  I'm going to aim to try outside later today or tomorrow.

Maybe swing them in the garage if you have one?   I either swing them in the gym or in the garage so the cold doesn’t interfere
