Interestingly,  there are mechanisms within the body that turn off power recruitment if iwhat you are doing is unsafe.

The safer what you do is the more power you will be able o apply to the club.

95 mph should get you 220 to 240 yards on average with 2700rpm of spin. Your best strikes should be over 250.

This is just about exactly where I'm at these days. I was on a monitor at Golf Galaxy a couple weeks ago and came in at 93 mph. My "bad" or off-center hits are about 220, while a solid strike gives me 235-240. If I really square one up it's 245-255.

Exactly what I was referring to with the smash factor. Solid contact is the quickest way to pick up yardage. 

During my driver fitting my swing speed was low 90s and when connecting solidly with the ball, I was at 260-265 total yards with the Ping G Series.

Smash factor is static on their machines, so I'm really not tuned i  to what mine is. But I completely agree the best way to add yardage is improving your contact quality.

Huh?

Smash factor is simply ball speed divided by clubhead speed. With a driver, that maxes out at about 1.5.

I'm not sure how it could be "fixed"?

Some older models of launch monitor/simulator fix the smash factor because they dont measure either ball/clubhead speed.  So maybe whichever he is using, is simply older and calculates one or the otber based on a fixed smash.

Yes, that's what I meant, sorry. This particular Golf Galaxy has their software set where the smash factor reads at 1.4 regardless of what happens. So, I've not seen what mine is.

I did from 1st, two summers playing, to my 3rd summer. You can definitely see it when you look at my 2017 GameGolf rounds vs 2016. (Wish GG had a reset for club distances for this reason, might take another year of rounds to really solidify my new numbers)

If I hit it 100%  (FYI, I club down/flight it at this distance to 7i) but my 160 yard club is my 8i which I then plan on being 150-170 on mishits. My 8i used to be my 130 club to cover 120-140.  

I didnt have a lesson for this, I think it was just better contact and building up more golfing muscle memory.

Yes and I will say I have never had my ballspeed measured, I've just observed what my Gamegolf results are. (GG captures total carry+roll). This was from my 2nd summer golfing (2016) to 3rd summer golfing in 2017.

    • Day 3: COVID-19 day 6 and 7 drills again. Then downswing priority piece work with 7-iron, not much, just 10 balls. 
    • Day 69, August 2, 2021 More work on shortening my backswing. I don’t want to even get to hands to right shoulder… at least feeling like that.
    • I'm sure if you look at about two years ago on this site, I mentioned somewhere that after having my first ever sub-80 round (a nice 77 in a tournament!), I failed to break 90 for I think two months.  These things happen. Can't hit an iron?  What's the longest swing you can make with your PW and hit a good result?  If the answer is a chip, go hit some chips and, after some good ones, expand into pitches.  Similar with pitches into 3/4 shots, etc.   This is very likely something you can work out by going back to what you do well.  
    • First range session after another productive session with @iacas.  Working on getting my weight forward and also feel like my front forearm is turning to close the clubface.  Did work with my 6I, Driver, 3W, and 4H and hit all clubs really well with ball flights that overall I wasn't unhappy with.  Playing tomorrow and Wednesday so we'll see how we do.
