  1. 1. Get my ballspeed back into 170mph area. Currently doing mobility and speed training. I have the speed sticks and may purchase some tools from Mach3 to help 2. Stop swinging SO flat. I have access to an indoor hitting bay with TrackMan where I practice throughout the winter and just started videoing my swing 3. Shallow the club. I’m a tad steep and OTT. I’m guessing this is how I’ve managed to lose distance the last few years 4. Reduce spin on driver and decrease dynamic loft for all clubs. TrackMan and swing changes 5. Practice at least 3-4 x’s a week with a big focus on shots 10-65yards for the 1st month of golf season 6. Get my putts down to 30 - practice and putter fitting 7. Routinely break 90 with a few low 80’s. - I have a membership this year and will be playing more often. I will be making time to practice ALOT at the start of the season 8. Driver fitting after my swing changes “take” - TXG is only an hour away 9. Wedge fittings - get fit for all my wedges 10. Decrease the amount of OB’s, lol.
  2. I’m curious how the swing speeds with the sticks relate to how fast you can swing driver. Would you say your driver swing is slightly faster than the red stick?
  3. IMO you want to measure the swing speeds of all swings so you’re gaining feedback
  4. Yes and No. They will most likely get some benefits but nowhere near the results if they use an accurate measuring tool You gave that guy TERRIBLE advice saying he didn’t need any radar. It’s a fraction the cost had he bought the radar with his sticks as opposed to going out to buy one later Not an issue tho. He’s a big boy and he makes his own decisions. That and golf ain’t cheap, so.. money gets lost From my experience swing speed is far from just swinging, swinging, swinging and assuming you’re getting faster. Using the radar gives HUGE feedback to what an efficient swing is. I can literally put EVERYTHING I’ve got into a swing vs loading efficiently and releasing the club and have a real life difference of some 15mph at times The goal is to increase CHS using the radar which translates to increased distance when you learn to marry the two ANOTHER great benefit to having the radar is to use it while hitting golf balls. Maybe 115mph produces MUCH better results than 122mph I personally find the radar itself is a better tool than the super speed sticks. The feedback is amazing. Like you, I’ve had very fast swing speeds with little effort vs massive effort and little speed. The radar helps develop a feel for what speed actually is, WITH little effort
  5. I don’t disagree with that at all. I do think you need some sort of gauge to work off tho, like you stated ( a radar that may measure 10mph slower but is consistent) Someone recommend you don’t need any radar at all which I completely disagree with. I feel bad if the guy asking trusted this information
  6. That’s kind of my point to the guy asking the question Its priced very well if you buy the radar alongside the purchase of the super speed sticks. NOT so much if you buy the radar separately after you realize later you actually DO need the radar I hope he bought them and didn’t take the horrible advice that he “doesn’t need the radar”. I cannot comprehend how you’d do the speed training without a measuring tool
  7. I could disagree more. The radar serves several purposes and offer great feedback I “suppose” it’s possible to make some speed gains working in the dark but it is definitely not ideal In my opinion if you’re going to invest in the super speed training system you get the radar I hope you purchase the swing speed radar as well and didn’t follow the advice given that you don’t need it
  8. The core moves 1-2mph Medicine ball training is useless unless you have some sort of specific goal you NEED to accomplish
  9. Why would someone be upset if someone were talking about their game (or distance)??? Guys routinely brag about being able to score within 80 yards Possibly not on this forum, lol. I definitely know I’ve seen it here too tho
  10. My post is to address 90% of forum golfers. It seems people do not believe an avg guy can hit a 250 yard drive and 300yards is not attainable if you’re not on the PGA yet we’re surrounded by scratch golfers or better. That’s far from true and idiotic at best to believe such nonsense Long drivers who don’t care about score can at times carry the ball over 400 yards I don’t care what others think about my golf. Legit! I routinely get beat by guys I can outdrive by 60-100yards I’m just saying I’ve seen guys carry the ball close to or over 300yards a ton of times but have NEVER seen an avg Joe shoot better than par
  11. A 300 yard is relatively easy compared to making a single par for any given hole let alone making 1 out of 3 holes par or even more EXTREME 18 pars guys on here claim they’ve NEVER seen a 260 yard drive but claim to hit mediocre drives of 220yards but hit EVERY fairway and 90% of greens and nail EVERY shot inside 100 yards My point? It’s EASY for some guys to hit 300 yard drives It’s EXTREMELY difficult to score well on any given day and even more difficult to score day / day out PGA tour pros play 7,000 (-7,500 yards in extreme cases). Hitting 290-340 yards is needed to get to tight pins on fast greens
  12. I was ABSOFAWKINLUTELY CRUSHING the ball today 288yard driving avg over 14 drives measured accurately using GPS!!! That’s with not being able to hit a decent drive the entire front nine (longest drive was 275) AND less than ideal driving conditions on the course today, 12* C, and damp.. 5 yard roll, 8 yards MAX NOT sure why these internet trolls are always hating on 300 yard drives like they’re unheard of. Anything less than a 240yard carry is legit weak sauce, lol Realistically the game can be played at a decent level IF unatlhletic old or weak men can “only” hit 180-210 yards but play from the short tees What is it about a longer than avg hitter that bothers other golfers? Seriously! Does it bring about insecure masculinity? Inferiority? The counter posts are embarrassing NO lie! This game is a GREAT game and I’ve seen it played all different ways What I do see (on the internet) is that calling out long hitters and assuming a guy who actually CAN hit a 300yard drive (like it’s impossible???) should be on the tour collecting green jackets yet all you trolls claim to be hitting 220-250yard drives AND sticking 50-100yards within 10” EVERY fawking time Who’s the real BS’er? Im legit long off the tee but rarely avg 300+ off the tee per round but am routinely 80-100 yards further than my typical playing partner. THAT being said I’ve been outdriven by 30-60 yards “on avg” on rounds paired up with other golfers (some who LEGIT shoot single digits) Why the hate? Why? I’d like to know? And more so, why the bold claims on actually being able to score in an extremely difficult game? Seriously! Do people honestly believe if they negate the possibility of an avg athletic Joe a 300 yard drive it enables them to claim feats of less than 30 putts per round, 80% fairways hit, 70+ greens in regulation and proximity to hole inside 120 yards is 15’??? Lets be real
  13. That’s awesome Now that the weather is nicer I’d continue your speed training on the range coupled with hitting balls. You can add Dr Scholls white powder spray to the club face to see where you’re hitting JUST a suggestion.. don’t try to hit the center of the face. Just address the ball like normal and let the club get back to the ball naturally. The white powder spray will show you where you’re making contact. For me I have to align my clubface off center towards the toe about 3/4”. The centrifugal forces extend the club and I find the center this way without compensating This works for me and I get a smash factor close to 1.5 on avg
