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?

    • Good for you, what course are you qualifying at?  Good luck.
    • Considering how many people he comes into contact with and how often he is flying, it is unfortunate but not a total surprise. You can catch Covid-19 again even with being vaccinated and previously infected. It just means that your infection is mild.
    • Or, he understands how it transfers, and he was only around his wife for two months. He didn't need to get tested… because in getting tested, maybe he would have gone out more than he did in isolating at home, perhaps? You are making a LOT of assumptions, as you often do, @Shorty. Cool it.
    • The Club at Lac La Belle - 6.5 I wasn't a big fan of this course. It was beautiful and well-maintained, but I found parts of it to be a little contrived. It's definitely a target golf course and for someone like me who is wild off the tee, it took all the fun of strategizing out of it because the risks were just too high. I did like that there was variety in the course layout with a good mix of short/long, right/left, uphill/downhill holes. I'm not sure I'd make a trip out to this one again if I'm ever back in the area for golf, but it's less than 10 minutes away from a delicious French bakery with the best croissants I have ever had, so that bumps up the score a little  I'd go back just for the croissants. The Sandbox - 7.0 This little 17 hole par 3 course was just fun. It gave you different looks and a variety of options for play. I really liked it and tried a bunch of different things I normally wouldn't have on a regular course. A 7.0 is probably the most I'd give to a par 3 course, though. Lawsonia Links - 7.5 I really enjoyed this course. Overall I found the layout to be good. There were plenty of places to miss, but you still needed to hit good golf shots to play well. I liked the way the mounds and bunkers were designed to play with the shape of the holes visually. There were really only a couple of holes I didn't like - 13 in particular, even though I made par both times using completely different strategies. It's just bordering on too many blind shots for me, though. I'd definitely play this course again if I have the chance. Mammoth Dunes - 8.5 This course was spectacular to look at - absolutely visually stunning. The pictures don't do it justice because they fail to capture the scale of everything. The place is massive. I'll echo what the others have wrote above: it's a journey. You feel like you're not going out to play a round of golf, but rather that you're going on an adventure while hitting a golf ball on the way. I understand now how some other reviews I've read or seen describe a feeling of getting lost, or losing your bearings for a bit. I wasn't thinking about routing. I had no idea where the clubhouse was. I didn't really care about any of it because I was out in this beautiful landscape. The golf itself for me was just there. I would be perfectly happy spending an afternoon just walking the course without playing it. And that's a bit of a detriment, because at the end of the day, it is a golf course. As a golf course, I found it didn't really matter much how you played it as long as you hit decent shots. There was certainly an ideal way to play the course well, and I hit some awful shots and paid the price for them, but plenty of just okay shots I got away with because of the layout. In the end that's fine. I don't need every course I play to be a grueling test of my skills.  I'd make a return trip and play this course again. Sand Valley - 9.0 This one is a golf course first and a spectacular view second. Where Mammoth Dunes focuses on the adventure, Sand Valley focuses on the golf. It's still visually stunning, but just not quite on the grand scale that Mammoth Dunes is. And Sand Valley does not let you forget for even one second that you're out there to do one thing: to play golf. I don't remember having a single shot out there that didn't require my undivided attention. The course absolutely punished you for missing your spots. But the flip side of that coin is that it was extremely rewarding to hit good shots there. An example is #8 mentioned above - I don't think I have ever felt so pleased to hit a GW to 35' before in my life, and I might never again. The course is a challenge in the best way. It makes you want to rise up to face it. I want to go back and battle it again. I shot my best score of the week with an 87 at Lawsonia, but it's the 94 the second time playing Sand Valley that I'm most proud of. Like Mammoth Dunes above, I'd make a return trip specifically to play this course again. Bonus Stuff The facilities at Sand Valley Golf Resort were top notch. The prices at the pro shop were fair. The food and drinks were also reasonably priced and delicious. The food truck at The Sandbox had the best food in the whole complex, IMO. Lac La Belle I felt was fancy but overpriced. I bought a polo at the pro shop at Sand Valley, but a similar shirt at Lac La Belle was like 50% more expensive. The golf carts had beautiful leather seats, but I absolutely hate geo-mapping on the GPS systems. I don't know how many times it slowed me down to tell me not to drive in the fescue even though I was driving parallel to it 20 yards away. Lawsonia had an older clubhouse and it certainly had a quaint feeling to it. That's not a bad thing. I did not look to see the prices they were charging for their merchandise.
    • Every YouTube video should start with a 10- to 45-minute diagnosis to make sure the video you're about to watch applies to you. There are a LOT of reasons why someone hits a slice. YouTube videos do not start with a 45-minute "disclaimer" because nobody would get through it. They just want to stop slicing, but if the video shows a fix for something that the student doesn't do, the video is less than worthless — it may actually cause more damage. Don't watch YouTube videos unless they're just working on some fundamental things, or you're very confident that what they're going to show you actually applies to you.
