Hi -

I accidentally came across this site when someone placed a link to the SuperSpeed review forum at the bottom of an article at Practical Golf, and boy am I glad I clicked through.  After reading through all the posts, I dusted off the SuperSpeed sticks I bought late last spring, but hadn't used much, started following the program about a week and a half ago, and signed up here on Friday.

Several buddies and I found ourselves in a good situation spring of 2016 - kids all old enough to either be in college or close to it, so a bit less running around on weekend, so we started playing golf Saturday mornings.  I had only played a handful of times, so started off basically from scratch as a 54 year old.  I've made some progress, and even though my scores stayed pretty flat this year from last, I feel like I learned a lot about what I need to work on.  Thought I'd spend time over the winter getting stronger, and inspired by the guys doing the SS review, have added that as well.  Right now my handicap is around 32 (based on adding my scores for the past 2 years into The Grint).  Working to shave 9 strokes off by the end of next summer - not sure if that's realistic or not, but seems like a good goal.  Spring is pretty cold and wet here in southeastern Massachusetts, so it's likely I won't get out until mid-April, so I have about 4 months to tinker around in the garage.

Greetings from the Pacific Northwest!  Glad you joined us Mike!  As one of the SuperSpeed testers, I will say that if you have these clubs, use them!!  The warmup routine is legit and is also an excellent pre-round stretching routine.  

If you keep track of your shots and record them in The Grint, it is an excellent way to focus your practice.  I've been doing it for the past 6 months, and it's very enlightening.

Thanks Kenny!  Thanks to what you guys doing the testing are posting, I am definitely on board with the SS clubs, will finish week 2 of level 1 Friday.  I agree on the warm-up routine too, I like it a lot.

You did Rev, and probably would not have posted here on the new member board if you hadn't suggested it - thanks!
