PM Bucky from this thread - he jury rigged a kneeling pad and it worked out great for him. I’m guessing he’s moved on to Cobra connect and not checking in here. 🙂

Pretty much nailed it on the head there Rev. I think I ended up with the two most intensive tests MGS has to offer back to back. No complaints though!

As for the knee pad I originally ordered a garden pad from Amazon for $15. It had a little more give than the official SuperSpeed pad but would have worked perfectly fine. Just buy as big of one as you can to make sure you don’t have a lot of sliding around.

If anyone else has questions send me a PM and I’d be happy to help.

Played 18 today, and while my swing is still not perfect I did manage to launch 4 drives over 240 one of which was a new personal best of 270. I was fortunate enough to get some roll going downhill, but I'm not complaining. Screenshot_20190507-200040.jpeg20190507_191208-01.jpeg

I just picked up a set for myself and the All Star set for my 7yo daughter. She has a great swing but she is small and does not generate much swing speed. We watched some videos and she is fired up to get started with training. I do have a couple of questions that I hope somebody can help out with.

1. I did not purchase the radar nor do I have a swing caddy or Mevo. Is this completely neccesary or will we be fine without it?

2. Do any of you have experience with these and children? If so, any tips, tricks, thoughts, etc would be very welcome.

3.Do you guys use these as a preround or pre range session woarm up? Im thinking that the protocols would be pretty good for      getting you ready to go and require less (Smaller) buckets of range balls for a good practice sesh.

Check a few pages back. There was a post that showed the recommended warmup. Last week I used my skillz gold flex trainer and the light club to get warmed up in the parking lot and it seemed to work well!

I’m only two weeks into the program, but the feedback here was so strong I couldn’t hold back anymore. Good luck with your training!

Love the new group of guys here!

You need the radar - just need it. Golf Spy MPR has his son doing SuperSpeed with his home made kit so I’d PM him for help.

The warm up question is insightful - I do the dynamic warmup before all range sessions and rounds. It’s a great warm up. I also keep the red (my heaviest) club in my bag and swing it from time to time throughout the round or session - I see big it as fast as I can when I do that to remind my brain to swing fast - I find that makes about a 2 mph difference in SwingSpeed for me.

I’ve experimented with lots of stuff and so far that works best.

Good luck guys and kids! I had my grandson swinging the green club this past weekend. :)

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

I went ahead and ordered the radar. It should arrive today. I am pumped to get going with this.

Congrats, and you should be. Just two night ago I started building graphs in Excel of all the data points I've recorded for my swings since January 1 (which was already 9 weeks into "training") and all I could think was "damn it, I wish I recorded and collected data from the start!" I trained my first 9 weeks without recording data and making a "game of it" and wished I did.

You know when the best time to start is? Yesterday!

You know the second best time to start? Today!

Awesome! Good luck! The radar is hugely important. I felt lost when I broke mine.

I hit 140 with the green club during my last session, so there is definitely something to competing against yourself with the radar. Having it really allows you to push yourself.

Has anyone tried using a Zepp swing sensor for checking the swing speed? Not sure I want to drop $100 on a radar...

Thanks guys! I was thinking about creating a spreadsheet to track this. You have convinced me. I should start a thread, post initial results, and then update it every week. I am really looking for this to help my daughter. She hits the ball very well but she just doesnt have the speed.

This is what most of us are doing. If you look at some of the stage 2 posts on the official testers did you can see the format being used for tv spreadsheet. You can create your own thread but the unofficial testers have just started posting here.

Yup, a bunch of unofficial testers like myself post here now.  There's a ton of good information in this thread and a lot of active support, so I would leverage the group here.  They've already answered a bunch of my questions.  

Good luck!  I just finished week 2 myself.  Looking forward to the next 4 of the first level!

I've been amazed at the progress I've made since starting the new routines. I started on "Level 2," since I had already completed the Introduction level of the old protocols.

My green club max has screamed past the goal of 130 I set at the beginning of my training, hitting 140 in my Wednesday session and now routinely at 133 or so.

Translating the speed to the course still needs some work. I've been reasonably successful with irons on the range, but am still struggling to get my actual driver speeds above 100 mph. And when I'm playing, my sequencing tends to get poor with both irons and driver, so there's still a lot to work on there, too.

League play was great today. Hit the ball well and hit some of my longer drives that I remember there. One particularly on the 17th hole I drove into the back bunker on the green. This screen shot is pretty close to accurate for where I teed off and ended up.

IMG_4492.jpg

My swing felt much better this week than last as I wasn’t trying to kill it. I have to get to the range soon so I am take the radar out and see some numbers.

You'll get there, no doubt about it. I had trouble getting the speed I was seeing to translate from the range to the course. I think it has something to do with risk, on the course you're penalized for an errant shot. Once you make it to week 20 and start the ASD protocols, it's like a switch went off. I struggled with sequencing and did the ASD 2 protocol, which has been phenomenal! I still struggle with extra distance with my irons, but the driver has been a beast.
