  1. I think stiff flex is for speeds around 100 mph
  2. I think speed has more to do with strength and flexibility than technique, something either you have or you dont, unless you train your body to get stronger. I would say any average healthy male golfer below 50 years old with 2 hands and 2 legs can get to around 85 mph without any training, but if we're talking about 95-100 mph then I dont think it's doable without some kind of training and a close to perfect golf swing. If you look up the average LPGA swing speed, I think it's around 94 mph, those women are pros and their swings must be pretty good right? Then how come the average is only 94 mph? Pretty sure strength is the main factor, they just dont have men's strength. By the way, I'm a small Asian guy so I'm probably at a disadvantaged position when compared to bigger guys from other countries in the world.
  3. So on a perfect driver swing I can hit about 90 mph max, around 85 mph on average, I would love to get to 100 mph but I dont see how that is possible because there's nothing more I can do as far as technique goes. Now I'm thinking maybe my shaft is a bit heavy for myself? I'm playing a 55 gram regular flex shaft, I know it's not considered too heavy for the average male and there's guys who swing over 100 mph with 60-70 gram shafts. If i go down to something like a 45 gram shaft, how much speed will I gain? Thanks.
  4. The game has ended, you made profit off the PPV, now release the highlights for the good of the society, damn it
  5. I will be the honest guy here, 35 years old and best drive I hit was under 220 yards on the full swing simulator at 125 mph ball speed. I always think the simulator under estimates though. My 5 wood goes over 200, so I dont know whats wrong with the driver.
  6. Still no replays or highlights on the internet, except a one or two shots of the par 3 and Phil's winning putt, WTF
  7. My ball speed just matched his swing speed recently, done on the full swing simulator though, could be an under estimate.
  8. Good golfer, but Hideki is probably the best asian player now, not good looking swing but better than AK
  9. The question I want to ask is, why has technology made the drivers and woods sound so terrible? I prefer to play better sounding woods from over 10 years ago if the distance gain is insignificant.
  10. Just found out my speed radar is way off when not hitting a ball, it's about 20 mph slower, so I'm actually at around 110 swing speed. However, even when I go to hit a golf simulator, I only get about 120 ball speed max, so the problem seems to be the smash factor? Or perhaps the simulator is not accurate? By the way I hit old range balls at the simulator, maybe I will buy some new balls soon to see if there's a difference. I will try to edit and post a video up here.
  11. I think I do move my legs and hips first on the downswing, but maybe my arms and shoulders are moving out too fast as well instead of moving down? Another thing I noticed is my left arm is too flat and hands are too high at impact. I could try to imitate a tour pro's position at impact but I still could not get faster swing speed, usually even slower than my normal swing. What else could be making me lose speed?
  12. Hi, just want to see if anyone can help with my swing problems here, sorry about not having a video of my swing but I will try to explain as much as I can : Background: I just got my first speed radar yesterday and I've been swinging my driver as fast as I could without hitting a ball. My best swing was recorded at 40 m/s (around 90 mph) . Funny thing is, when I slowed down and relaxed, then did practice swings at around 60% effort, I could still get around 30 m/s of speed. So I think my full hard swing has some big problems to cause such power loss? My swing: The biggest problem I'm aware of is that I can never bring my right shoulder down like the tour pros at impact position, it's always too high like it's spinning out towards the ball. My back also tends to straighten up while doing that. This is the only problem I can think of that might be causing me to lose a lot of power and speed. How can I improve my impact position? I might be using too much hands instead of my body as well because of the spinning out problem, Appreciate if anyone can help me out. Thanks a lot.
