Increasing Swing Speed - The Complete Series


Recommended Posts

  • SPY VIP

I've been enjoying following my buddy Colby, AKA Quite the Chap as he pursues his quest for greater swing speed this winter/spring. Thought I'd share his vlog with you guys because they are quite entertaining and you may get something out of it.

And I'll say for anyone wondering if the kid can play, Colby is the real deal scratch player.

Well, I say good for him. He's serious about improving his game. He's young and a bomber I'd imagine. My question is; is he wanting to only gain distance or improve accuracy. Or both? Both I'd think. I wonder also why he thinks he needs to be at 116 mph? After watching the 4th video I'd guess that his distance (or lack) is more attributable to his off-center strikes. I can't swing at 105 with my driver. I'm at about 92 on average. Much lower with my irons. Granted I'm 61. But with my swings speeds I have good distance and am pretty accurate. Most people I know and play with swing much faster. Many times these faster guys have much less accuracy then me. But boy can they unload on it. The ball will go somewhere that's for sure. I think there is a line somewhere between the right swing speed for you while still maintaining accuracy. I'll always take accuracy over distance. That's where my game is today anyway. Later on in life I'm sure I'll be screaming for distance.

 

It's interesting to me that somebody like the guy in the video would take the time to produce videos like he does. 4 minutes per video. Wonder how much time it took him to make each of those? I don't live in the YouTube generation and have absolutely no interest in making and then posting a video of anything I do. But then again... I'm 61. Yes... OLD!!! However, I can respect a guy like him for at least having a passion for his game and then sitting around for hours making a video. What else do you do in the Vancouver rain? Ha.That's probably a hobby of his also.

Very cool. Like to see this kind of drive. I hope he gets there. I am one of the lucky ones that's swing 118+ comes natural. And speed isn't that important contact is important

I thin he gets it. Maybe not by the 31st but by mid season if he keeps it up. The real question is what should be the next part of his game he should tackle?
