Hi all, are there any current long drive competitors/aspiring long drivers out there that would like to share a bit about how they workout, what exercises they focus on, diet, etc. I recently hit on a Trackman for the first time and had a top driver swing speed of 128mph and want to get it faster! I play about once a week and go to the gym daily but focus on "standard" lifting (bench, squat, deadlift, isolation workouts). Any advice is greatly appreciated!!

  1. Driver: Taylormade R7/ Fujikura Stiff (Need to upgrade)
  2. Fairway Wood: Cleveland Launcher/ Pro Launch Blue
  3. Titleist T-100/ True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100
  4. Long Island, New York
  5. 11 Handicap

Tiger's speed is 129, so you're right there with the best.

Sorry, Tiger isn’t a long drive competitor and isn’t worth mentioning compared to those guys. Kyle Berkshire is in the 150 club head speed range for long drive. The top women are in the 125 MPH range.

You will need to train for speed. Superspeed training is a start. All the top long drive guys do the big lifts. I’m not sure what Kyle break shire was doing prior to the summer last year but when he started powerlifting type training he added to his speed.  joe Miller also does lofts of heavy lifting. 

might want to invest in a 48” driver with low loft and see what your swing speed is and how you hit.
