Can't wait to see on course numbers for all of the testers. Interestingly enough I'm getting some traction with my OW so I could see a direct transfer from Swing Speed protocols to on course results.

I'll be interested to see the numbers the new group will see and those I will see tomorrow. I accidentally unpaired my Arccos putter sensor last week messing around trying to get it to work and Arccos won't keep stats if you don't have 8 clubs plus putter in play. The battery was dead anyway, so I bought the SuperStroke sensor and have it paired and ready to go.

 

I'm curious now how the OW will affect you game and hopefully we'll hear positive results.

I'm thinking the plateau is about over for me as I just started week 8. I'm consistently seeing better numbers on the radar, especially on the days I let it rip. For anyone who might be chosen for the 2020 test, you will have days that it's just not there, it happens. That being said, my numbers today were 117, 112, and 109 from the dominant side and every kneeling swing from that side topped 100. I think that might be a first.

I'm still tracking my weekly progress as a way to keep motivated.

There have been some up and downs along the way, but I'm hoping I'll see some positive progress if I get to do a swing test soon. Our driving range nets were shredded on Easter when the tornados got close to them. Sad thing is, I bought a range pass and still have 10-12 trips on it. emoji24.png It's the only range within 30 miles.
@edingc keep up the great work, those are some impressive numbers and it's been a pleasure watching you progress.

I did some dry swings today after my session just to see the potential in my irons. My 7 iron averaged 83 and my SW 72. There's no way I could take those swings to the course, but it was good to see.

Thanks for the nice words. It's been really fun to stick with the protocols and see progress.

Bummer to hear about your range. I'm in a similar situation right now. Michigan opened courses Friday, but clarified the ruling today to exclude driving ranges. 

I do have a tee time scheduled for next Tuesday morning, so I'm likely just going to need to shake the rust off on course.

If you check on OW's company YouTube, there's one on increasing SS. I'm using that for practice in my backyard. However, I think the real increase in SS is coming from footwork and better balance with the OW.

A couple of more questions for both you and Rev.

1. After protocol 3 can you quantify an increase in your driver speed on the range or course using a LM?

2. The increase you saw with your driver - let's say it was 8% , as an example 100 mph going to 108. Did that transfer through your bag. Example say your 7i was 80 mph, after protocol 3, at 8% going from 80 to 86 mph?

Just trying to understand the results better and how they transfer to the course.

For me it was quantifiable on the course - nearly 20 yards with driver and almost a club through the bag with irons per my shot scope app.

A great example came at Innisbrook - I had played one of the courses there a year prior. Back to back 400 yards. Prior to SuperSpeed they were driver, 5 hybrid and driver 5 wood - last year it was driver 9 iron, driver 7 iron. I could go at the pin over the trap with the 7 iron and went par, par v. Par, bogey.

I lost about 10 yards, when I stopped the protocols and most of the iron yardage - I’ve picked up 5 plus yards and a half a club on my irons so far after 10 weeks this go round - my recent numbers suggest that I will be back close to where I was when I left off.

I intend to continue through the summer this time.

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.

That's interesting on the lost yards. Are you saying that stopping the protocols resulted in lost yardage? Another related question: do you have a physical training program and if so what impact (no pun intended) did that have.

To be clear, lost yards from when I was in the third level not from where I started.

Yes I work out but nothing golf specific per se. Band work, elliptical bike, lots of stairs - 17 flights today plus walking 18 holes 25,000 steps total.

I averaged 237 today. That’s right where I was in level 3 so just as I expected my distance is returning. It’s fairly dry for here but not super dry. We had lots of rain Friday and Saturday. Our conditions will continue to soften throughout the summer and be that way until November.

I’ve also moved back a half a set of tees

I think some type of physical training can make a positive impact on it. Being on lockdown I havent been able to lift like I normally do and I've lost a cool 5 mph on my speed sticks. Now that's after a month of not really doing them either but the drop in power is definitely noticeable.

I didn’t hit like because I feel for your plight. Our restrictions haven’t been as severe as many. Every time I play golf I think about you guys and pray that your restrictions will loosen soon while actually praying that ours loosen slowly.

Fully agree on the conditioning stuff, anything is better than nothing. I suppose I could be more golf specific but I need to do other things in life, too. Preaching 5 times a week and teaching several classes can be a physical grind and then there’s the constant lifting of my daughter.

i had a pretty intense workout regiment over the winter from home using a Total Gym. Alternating every other day upper body and lower body. At 73, most of my peers are losing muscle and distance pretty quickly - I seemed to have stabilized and maybe even gained slightly. I have an objective of dramatically decreasing my Index this year - so one of components - frequent workouts will continue.  .

Hey guys, this thread has gotten an insane amount of run in the 2 years it's been up. Let's keep this party going and transition over to the 2020 SuperSpeed thread.
