I'm glad you are having success using the Superspeed golf training system.  I am one of the owners and a Long Drive Professional and previous touring professional.  We have seen huge gains from this system after a lot of R & D with specific protocols.  Thanks for posting and looking forward to seeing your results as you continue your training.  Awesome thread.  keep up the good work! Unleash your speed, Eddie Fernandes @fasteddie400

Welcome to TST, looking forward to more posts on assorted topics from you as well! Again, welcome.

I just ordered my super speed golf and the speed detector thing...gonna try this out.....I have a 97-98 mph  driver swing now with a 235-240 yd average....hoping to gain 10-15 yds after training with this for a month

@No Mulligans I think that could work. You are looking for roughly a 10% increase/decrease in weight lighter and heavier. Hard to say without knowing the exact weights. However I would guess most people could improve thier swing speed by measuring with the radar and doing sets trying to increase it.

I decided to give this superspeed workout a try.  But the $199 for the 'clubs' , that price point is about twice of what I'd want to pay.

I'm going to use my wife's driver, my current driver, and my old driver for the lightest, medium and heavier weights.  I've ordered a speed sensor radar to track the progress (if any).  So I'm going to wait until I get that before I start.

I wonder if there have been any studies done to test the effectiveness of the training clubs vs. doing the exercises with ones driver. I'm pretty sure that progress could be made either way, but is one better than the other?

Another concern that I have is that with my medical related stiffness and age, can my body hold up to this protocol.  I do stretch about 20 minutes a day, which I have done pretty much every day for the past year.  So I'll definitely focus of stretching and warming up.

Played 27 holes today! It's been raining like crazy down here in Orlando so distance is all carry (no roll). I just cant make much of a conclusion on distances based on the holes played today. I was making ok contact but not even close to mid season form (haven't played golf in 3 months).

Feel free to take a look at my rounds but nothing to concur IMO.

It should dry up a bit the next couple days (and I hope to be striking the ball better).

How long are you down in FL? I might be in Tampa next week.

My driver head weighs 199 grams and a golf ball weighs 40ish grams, so I'm going to drill holes through the golf balls and put the correct amount on the shafts to get the right weights.

Just received my swing speed clubs and swing radar....I plan on using the protocol training system for this month and all of Feb. My first golf tourny is March 7. Living in NJ, I'm thankful I have access to a 24 hr indoor driving simulator with all the bells and whistles regarding swing speed/launch monitor/spin rates/ distance/ etc....Hopefully I can re-find my drive this year. Last year was so pitiful.Hopefully THIS INVESTMENT will be worth it.!

Here is one that is basically half the price for the same product. http://www.veloshaft.com/home.html

That doesn't look to be the same, only 2 "clubs" and looks like only one is weighted.

Well,I tried swing my new SUPER SPEED GOLF clubs today @ work....I coul dn't swing in the kneeling position but I tried the regular standing/ step forward swings...

I will say my first time swinging the clubs that I was somewhat conservative...I will try again tomorrow @ home in the ya rd without worrying if I'm going to hit anything...just have to put with my SO and her running commentary about if I don't have it by 56 I'm never gonna get ......

RIGHTSIDE:                        LEFTSIDE

Sound like you need to adjust the position of your speed radar.

I'm also going to take this route, but instead of a driver I'm making my own clubs, I have some old driver shafts and I'm going to use golf balls for weights. My driver head weighs 199 grams and a golf ball weighs 40ish grams, so I'm going to drill holes through the golf balls and put the correct amount on the shafts to get the right weights.

This is a great idea.

Isn't a stack of golf balls going to have the weight distributed differently than a driver, thus causing the shaft to load and unload differently? I imagine it would change the balance point of the club and affect the swingweight, too. All of this is going to affect your mechanics, will it not? Maybe you can use just one tennis ball and fill it with something that has the proper weights?

I think it should work just as well with graphite. You might need to drill out the higher ones to accommodate the taper on graphite shafts.

I actually changed my mind, I got some old postal scale weights and I'm going to drill them out and epoxy them to the shaft. I have a scale that I can weigh them to get them to the correct weight had too

I've been swing the super speed golf clubs every day now for a week. Went to the simulator this morning and my driver speed was in the average of 100-105 mph range...my distance average shot up from the 230+/- yards to the 255+/- yards .. I also changed my settings on my calloway driver( I have a 13 degree, dropped it -1 degree.(last year with at least 3 drivers I had a launch angle around 7-9...now I average 11-12...im really try to coil and swing "thru" the ball.)

@sunned123 This some impressive improvement! I have a couple of questions if you don't mind.

Was the simulator Trackman/Fightscope or is it one that you have been on before to establish a base line?

When I or anyone is doing this training you are moving the sticks as fast as you can. Were you going as hard as you could in the the simulator? Or was it more your normal effort.

Do you notice much difference in dispersion or ball flight?

    • Sorry in advance for this but as a student and guy who bought the book and read it a few times - is there a thought about adding some coupons again sometime soon? 😬
    • Something clicked in my head when I read this. I forgot about the chest down part (we didn't focus on it much in Erie because I kept dipping too low), but I thought about it now and put everything together and realized what I'm trying to do is a hip hinge like I would do when weightlifting. So I started practicing a hip hinge as my transition move. I played on Sunday with that feel and hit the ball pretty solidly, but had some clubface control issues. I practiced today to refine everything:   I think these swings are probably the best ones so far. I learned today that my clubface issues come from the arms lifting too much in the backswing. If I get them too high, the club tips out and I hit too much across the ball with the face open. Big push-fades. Need to keep feeling the left arm stays lower in the backswing, almost too flat - Ben Hogan pane of glass feel.
    • I wasn’t saying jeans weren’t ok just more of a comfort thing. I don’t really care if somebody plays in jeans. I just couldn’t be comfortable golfing in jeans. I agree with the not caring about what the person wears. From the people I’ve been paired with when I didn’t have 4, the better the clothes the worse the game. I know it’s not a hard rule but I think fairly accurate. 
    • I'm so glad I don't have to worry about my kyphosis...that would be a nightmare....
    • For the jeans, I think a lot depends on the course. There are some people who end up choosing between golfing or not depending on what they can wear based on time. I play a lot of public courses that have, shall we say...a relaxed or perhaps country setting. We routinely have construction guys roll up in their battered rig, roll out and head straight to the tee (the courses know them well enough to let them pay after the round) in dirty jeans, shirts, etc. Wide range of abilities from double bogey hackers to some guys who run a lot of pars. I love these courses because I can wear gym shorts, tee shirts, and just play. I see people ranging from the above all the way to the guys with the tight tucked tour set-up, belt, etc.   My enjoyment of my personal round has nothing to do with which groups I see ahead or behind me or, for that matter, if I am matched up with them. Jeans, cut-offs, wife-beaters, none of them bother me or my round, only the personality of the people I am matched with.   I also sometimes play much nicer courses...I have been able to play the private With Hollow side of Pumpkin Ridge, as one example, and there I do wear the ugly-@# shorts and a nicer polo. I also intentionally play there very seldom as I don't enjoy the round as much in clothes I find ugly.   Which likely means the codes are working. They keep people like me who don't care about what other people are wearing away from courses where people are more interested in the atmosphere. For me the beauty is there is room for both. I have no need to play those courses and those courses have no need for the money of people like me, they seem to be getting along fine.
