Super Speed Golf

I'm intrigued by this topic.  I used a weighted club for years (and swung with two bats in the on deck circle followed by the donut as a baseball player.) So of course I rebelled about ten years ago when I heard that it may have been hurting my ability to swing faster.

 

Fast forward to the past six months and my fitness program.  About two months ago I asked my trainer to give me some golf specific exercises,  The ones that she came up with included swinging some sort of light weight training aid as fast as I could 70 times a week.  I have one that my wife and grandkids had rigged into a cat toy so I reclaimed it and have been following the plan.

 

The claim for the swing speed training is 10 mph swing speed in a month.  That would equate to upwards of 20 yards with the driver. 

 

I haven't seen that type of gain but honestly I have seen some - certainly a full club with my irons.  I have seen some gain with the driver but it's been less consistent - my top end drives are out there beyond a doubt and I was very pleased when I played Bayou the beginning of last week - no career drives, but this is not the time of the year for those in Florida - What I got was the ability to reach all of the par 4's in regulation without having to pull three wood - that's a big deal -

 

To me the Super Speed seems to take the training that I've been doing to the next level.  I'm anxious to know if anyone is doing it or any other type of swing speed training right now.

I am planning on getting the for winter...

 

I've always followed Bubbas advice and make at least 20 full speed swings a day to keep the rust from forming. It ends up being more like 100 full speed swings, so I might as well be doing some sort of training in the off season.

 

New plan is once a week sim over the winter just to keep the ball striking sharp. Along with the swing speed and the sim I should be able to see some sort of numbers result.

I'm giving serious consideration to making my own setup. I really like the idea, but it seems to be priced higher than needed.

 

I'm looking to buy three low end shafts, and I'm kicking around secure ways to add weights to the end to get them to the published specs of the Super Speed system.

 

If I take this up, I'll certainly post about it here.

I'm 90% on board to the program this winter. If nothing else to keep my swing and any changes I make as crisp as possible. I also think it would be a fun experiment to see how much speed I can gain over a winter with a good workout program and this.

I am probably going to get the kit, but I have 2 broken shafts you can have. Well one is a broken TM R1 shaft , and you can have the old Adams driver and shaft. I have a box, PM me if your interested.

I too am intrigued by this idea but am on a seriously tight budget- I do have some broken shafts so, would anyone be able to tell me what to do to approximate the setup here?

Happily, Super Speed publishes the specs:

I definitely appreciate the offer. Here's the thing: I'm just OCD enough that if I built this with three entirely unmatched shafts, it would drive me nuts. I've got three shafts (Adams .350) and grips in my cart at Diamond Tour Golf, just waiting for the next free shipping promotion.

FWIW - I was doing the Drive 400 program for a while, but I had to travel for work and fell off the wagon. Need to get back on it.

Aimee Cho has some really nice videos on YouTube. She talks about all things golf. Her tips and practice drills are priceless. She also gives some advice on building strength in your core. You should check her out.

My big question with this system is how does it help maintain a good swing?  I know when I swing 100% on a shot, my swing doesn't have the proper sequence that it should.  Granted more speed will give you more distance, but you still have to have the perfect path and face impact.

You're not supposed to swing 100% when you play (for accuracy). So right now if your max is 90mph swinging all out, and you play with 85% your playing speed is about 77mph. If you can train to increase your max to 110mph, then when you play at 85% you'll have a normal relaxed swing at 94mph... which is longer and more accurate than your previous 90 swinging wild. And you'll have a way higher max speed to tap into when you want to go for it.

I'm another one that is intrigued by this, but also would be looking at making (more accurately getting my father in law to make) some weights to fit onto existing shafts I have lying around. He's more than handy with a lathe, and has plenty of nice shiny stainless just waiting (or is that weighting?) to improve my game.

Great discussion!

 

@Steddygolf - I will check her out.  My trainer also gave me core work that I am doing but its nice to have several routines to choose from.  Staves off the boredom and engages muscles differently.

 

@goaliewales - it's exactly as the bluesman said - the idea isn't that you would hit balls swinging as fast as you are able just that you would get yourself used to swinging faster so that when you make your normal swing.

 

So I borrowed a guy's Voice Caddy today just to try it out - as you may know from another thread I'm planning on purchasing an inexpensive LM either that one (probably) or the Mevo.  When I was at my fitter getting numbers for the G400 driver test my swing speed was 84.5.  My best club set up, shaft, head loft combo had my carry average at 205.  I hit ten usable drivers (out of 12 - the others weren't bad they just didn't register as I was trying to learn how to use the device)  My SS average for the 10 was 89 with a high of 91 and an averaged carry of 214.  There was a 220 yard target on the range that I was aiming at and I consistently got past it with the run out and did have at least one drive carry past it. 

 

When I was playing my best golf my swing speed was consistently in the mid-90's.  Average LPGA stuff.  That's what my goal is with this program - to get there again.  I think it's a possibility just going along as I am right now.

 

For the guys who are thinking of waiting until the winter - I guess I understand it but I don't know why you wouldn't start now.  Unless you can play golf or hit balls every day it only takes a few minutes to get those fast swings in.  Some sort of light club and then your own driver may not be as precise as the Super Speed program but it's the same concept.

 

Since my plan includes core workouts I find that I want to avoid playing the day after my two days of working out - I'm pretty sore on that day.  I use it for cardio workouts.

I'm seriously considering pulling the trigger on this. $200 is pricey though. Less $$$ to waste on more irons

You'd understand it better if you had six months of winter that needs to get filled with something to do :)
