2018 Official Forum Member Review - SuperSpeed Golf

Recommended Posts

@Joen - I've travelled a couple of times and have taken all three if it was going to mean missing a workout.  Workout wise it's better to do the workout prior to playing - playing wise its better to play before working out.  You make that call.

 

Where will you be playing?  I know that we are expected to have a cool down this upcoming weekend but a cool down this time of year means low 70's in my part of the state - If the cold front comes with wind the Players is going to be a hoot on Saturday. 🙂

Question for you guys:

Golf trip to Florida on Sunday for six days. I don’t want to miss any workouts. Should I take all three Superspeed sticks.....or just take one to conserve weight in my golf bag and modify the workout with only one stick?  I am torn, but I definitely don’t want to regress. 

What say the players gallery?

I’m with Matt, take all 3.

Rev,

We will be in Orlando.  We will be playing Champions Gate three times. We are hitting Providence Golf Club somewhere near Tampa so we can catch a Yankees spring training game.  We will be spending a day at Grand Cypress and a day at Shingle Creek.  Seventies will feel like a hundred degrees compared to upstate New York weather. 

I will probably do the workout out first thing in the morning. Thanks for your thoughts on the timing. We always eat after golf and sometimes don’t get back to condo late at night so I think workout first thing in the day is best.

So, I sent an email to Daisy after getting my G400 LST about differences in swing speed between my old (279 grams) and my new (313 grams) drivers. She asked me to do a comparison session and send her the data and so far I've done two totaling 15 shots with each.

With the Ping, during the first session of ten shots I had swings of 95, 92, 93, 96, 95, 93, 96, 93, 92, and 94 for a total of 939.

The second session of five swings I had speeds of 94, 95, 96, 96, and 95 for a total of 476.

Total for 15 swings 1415 for an average of 94.33 mph.

With my TaylorMade, during the first session of ten shots I had swings of 92, 96, 92, 92, 94, 96, 94, 90, 92, 94 for a total of 932.

The second session of five swings I had speeds of 95, 97, 100, 97, and 93 for a total of 482.

Total of 15 swings 1414 for an average of 94.26 mph.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that there's no real difference between the two drivers. I do plan on comparing the two drivers a few more times just to make sure a have enough data points to make an informed decision.

By the time I finished testing yesterday, I had four range balls left in the bucket and hit them with the Ping. I had shots of 99, 100, 101, and 92. That's a 98 mph average to finish off the range session! The 92 was disappointing, but overall I'll take that average any day of the week!

Did you have better dispersion patterns with one over the other?

The Ping was definitely outperforming the TaylorMade. Straighter shots with more consistent distances.

Started week 3 of training today.  Weather was a bit warmer so I think that helped with my speeds but I was able to beat all my previous high numbers.  My left handed swings are up about 10 MPH with each club since week one and I feel somewhat coordinated with the lefty swings.  I guess it is my competitive nature,  but I am eager to do each session and see if I can beat my previous numbers.

What part of Upstate are you from joen?  I grew up near Glens Falls and went to college in Syracuse.  Believe it or not, I still love snow...

Here’s something I hope to avoid in the future:  had to get up at 4:45 this morning (on top of losing an hour to daylight savings time), had a long day, so didn’t get to the protocol until 8 PM.  Didn’t want to skip it because the past 2 weeks I’ve only been able to do two sessions a week.  I was really dragging through this one, but still glad I got it in.

We live in a suburb of Syracuse called Liverpool. I dont know if I love snow lol, but spring, summer, and fall here are wonderful. We also have a bunch of good golf courses all around the area.

That sounds painful.

Warmer weather headed my way, too, but I tweaked a muscle in my left lower back area (not doing the protocol) and am having to take a week or two off while it rests. Disappointing. Hopefully the progress I made stays with me.

Oh boy - lots to respond to here.

@ JoeN - I'm an Ithaca College Bomber through and through so I know your neck of the woods well.  Once had a call to serve in Auburn - I cried like a baby when I decline it - just wasn't the right time for me to leave where I was at.  And I can see the Yankee Spring training site right out Penny's hospital room (its IVIG day) today.  I have a member who is one of their minor league trainers - we are going to see the Phillies next week on him - that's not the game you'll be at by any chance, is it?

 

@csnoil - me too with that competitive thing - every swing that is not as fast as the last swing is a challenge to ramp it up. 🙂

 

@sirchunksalot - Driver swing speed is one thing - ball speed is king!  You don't have a device other than the radar do you?  I think you'll find that the ball speed and distance of the Ping is far superior to the Taylor Made that you had.   I'm sure all of us have had the experience that our best drives come on shots where our driver swing speed is a bit off our max.  Higher smash factor, faster ball speed, longer hits. 

 

I'm curious to as how every is doing in regards to their ball striking.  Mine continues to improve - a lot more of my driver strikes are d1.47 or up on my Voice Caddy.

I don't have anything other than the radar and the nearest launch monitor is thirty minutes from the house, so I haven't gotten that data. You've gotten me curious, though and I'll probably hit one up soon. I have had a couple of shots at the range where the radar picked up the ball speed with the TaylorMade and it registered in the 133 mph range. I haven't had anything like that so far with the Ping, but I can tell a difference in the way it comes offs the face.

Oh yeah, I know where Liverpool is.  I knew a couple of kids from Liverpool when I was at SU, and of course used to go to Heid’s once in a while.  I actually spent 2 1/2 summers in Syracuse (my dad changed jobs and the family moved to NJ, so I didn’t have much interest is spending the summers there) so I know what you mean about the beautiful CNY spring, summer and fall weather.  Like Jim Boeheim said, Syracuse is just like Hawaii 6 months a year and the rest of the time we play basketball.

Do you remember Manley Field House, Mike?  Went to a number of games there - pre dome days when Boeheim had hair. 🙂

I do, although the Dome opened my freshman year, so I didn’t get to see any games at Manley.  Boeheim was still wearing those plaid blazers though!

Got to spend time in Manley for some other events though...the big one was the annual MDA dance marathon that went from 8 PM on a Friday to 10 PM Sunday to raise money for Jerry Lewis’ organization. I did that all 4 years, a lot of fun, but kind of exhausting (they let us sleep for 4 hours  Fri & Sat nights).

Manley’s last year was my senior year. :(
