My Progress w/Overspeed Training Using SuperSpeedGolf


Recommended Posts

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.

Tonight was my first time doing the protocol in 10 days due to weather, and was really surprised, hit a new  all time PR with the green club and it was in the last set of stationary swings at the end,

If you have old/unused shafts lying around, you can make your own speed sticks if you want for a fraction of the price. I had 3 shafts and I used washers that fit over the end of the shaft and us

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).

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.

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

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 ......

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?

    • Day 34 (30 Jul 21) - Played 18 today.  Worked on clubbing up on the approaches with a 3/4 swing.  It has helped with getting the ball onto / near the green.  Had some great shots into the greens and even when not on the green, being confident to bump and run with an 8i or pitch with the 54wedge.    
    • Back to the "regular" course today - rough greens and all.  Shot 94 (45 /49).   Played the back nine first with the first three holes (all par 4's) being double bogies.   I knew this was going to be an interesting day for sure.  Good thing - no triples today.  Too many doubles though with a total of six and only one par.  These greens are tough to play as they are either real sparse on good grass or the grass is like putting on cut pile (you have to really stroke through the ball to get the roll).  It calls for one to pin hunt to keep the putter distances as short as possible.  
    • Agreed. This is hard to watch and really boring. Commercials every 2 minutes (thanks, DVR and ff!) Perhaps the last day will be worth watching, with the gold on the line. I would not be surprised if some guy you never heard of takes a medal.  
    • I think it’s even worse than what you describe.   I live in an area where people are cheering that there will be no mask mandates and they like to rub it in peoples faces.   They are literally trying to own people who are taking it seriously.   I mean, people are just disgusting.  I can’t even muster anything in me to feel remotely sorry for people like that, nor have anything to do with them.   I’m sure there were lots of people in generations past who took the easy way out and did the wrong things in prior pandemics and war times, but that’s not terribly easy to find in history books.  Books will be written about how people not only killed themselves, but in their twisted belief that they are “protecting their freedoms” they are stripping them away from others.      I have 2 kids under the age of twelve.   With Delta allowed to become dominant because “people want to live their best life” (at others expense), they now are scared to go back to school (and the idiot system won’t do remote learning this year), won’t be able to travel and see their grandparents* , and can do less than 3 months ago.   Nice job folks.   * their grandparents are total a-holes though, so I won’t shed a tear.
    • Here I am, yesterday, doing the day 11 drill.  This represents my status after about ten minutes or so of doing the drill.  I really like it, and I can see how it will help me get better, and I plan to do this one more regularly.  However, I'm not sure I'm doing it right (similar with the snapping sticks drill, where I was stopping wrong).  There's even a really bad putt in this video that I was tempted to edit out, but decided to leave in (since my bad shots are instructive to how I'm doing it wrong, I think). As for other drills, I'm not sure how many I should be posting videos.  Part of me feels like I'm semi-spamming this thread (and I really should have done these 15-16 months ago). And in looking at my last few videos, including two I sent to Evolvr a week ago, it looks like my tripod gets tilted, I need to figure out what I'm doing wrong there.
