Well that’s what I said. Jim has said he generates 118mph SS with this method. He says he hits his 9i 150yds. Jim is not a specimen of supreme athleticism so I’d like to see these numbers confirmed. I too would like to see a pro golfer hit this swing correctly and compare it to his regular swing with a monitor.
Look, I signed up for JV method and paid for one on one video lessons/analysis. This method is so far what @iacas has said it is. That isn’t a slam at all. It’s a critical analysis which by the way Jim gets quite snarky when questioned about. He refuses to provide any scientific data and resorts to things like ‘ I know the truth..you should find out for yourself’ ‘ try my method’ Talk and more talk.
He stated he’s been teaching this method for 25 years so no, it’s not going to go tour wide.
I like Jim. He’s a good guy and this method is what it is. But if he’s going to make claims that the conventional swing/instruction is wrong..or that his SS is 118mph with no weight shift then he needs to put that to science and not faith.
Single digit is going to be a challenge with 210 off the tee. Have you optimized on a launch monitor? Frankly, I would try to get another 20-30 yards off the tee. I would then take lessons on a launch monitor. If you can get to 240 off the tee with roll, you might have an 8 iron instead of a 5 iron for a second shot. A whole nuther ball game. I'm a little older than you.
