  1. My radar says my best swing is near 90 mph with the driver and it's not any slower on video than any 100+ mph swings I see on youtube, I wonder how people get those numbers and how pros hit like 100 mph with just their irons, I just cant imagine it when I'm swinging at 90 mph and at this speed I already cant see the club head moving near the ground.
  2. At the top of the back swing, I see most good players get their hands at least the same height as the top of their heads, most even go above their heads. But I cant do it, I have to bend my body down a lot to even get to any where near the top of my head, and it is an uncomfortable position and I cant generate speed. Is it because I'm a fat guy? Any advice thanks.
  3. How did Duval get qualified? He should just retire
  4. The last group will tee off after 4pm? Are they going to play without lights?
  5. It cant be a Taylormade, they make no sound
  6. Does anyone know what he's using? His driver sounds way better than all the others
  7. I cant see anything there, is it because I'm not watching in the US?
  8. Forgot to say Sandy Lyle, Ian Woosnam, Mike Weir, Trevor Immelman Not sure about that, no other major has lifetime exemption
  9. I have wanted to ask this question for a while, Larry Mize seems to be playing every year even though he probably knows he has no chance of winning. Also a question about the lifetime exemption of a champion, does the exemption reduce the chances of the other exemptions entering the field? What happens if too many past champions sign up?
  10. I don't watch LPGA, but PGA would be Gary Woodland
  11. Basically after I make a good swing, I may totally lost it after a few swings. Let's say I hit 90 mph on my best swing, then I drop to 80 mph after a few minutes just because I made a few small mistakes, it could be just a slight angle change or tension change in my arms, hands, wrists, some parts of my body get a little fast or slow, or maybe my body just gets tired and the muscles go out of sync. It's like one or two small mistakes and I lose all the power. How do you guys practice to remember the best swing?
  12. I think stiff flex is for speeds around 100 mph
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. The game has ended, you made profit off the PPV, now release the highlights for the good of the society, damn it
