So I went to the range today and did the normal dynamic warm up although I’ve modified it to use the Blue club rather than the Red.

I then started hitting balls, full wedges at a flag that was 110, then 7 irons at one that was 148 - peppered that one, then 7 wood (4 iron equivalent) at a flag that was 184 - but 6, 4 went past it and these were true range balls, not quite as good as a gamer.

Then came driver - but first a blue stick swing:

That’s very fast for me so I couldn’t wait to see what driver would bring, this:

There was a flag at 227, that’s just about my average drive per ARCOSS (226 isn’t average), this ball flew past that and bounded up to a pin that was 264. For real.

You're going to need to upgrade that driver shaft before too long...

Did an experiment today, mostly out of necessity - it started pouring yesterday just as I was going outside to do the protocol. Set my alarm for earlier today to try to do it before work. Still raining even though it was supposed to stop at 4 AM. I needed to get it in today to stay on schedule, so I did it after playing 9 for league. It actually worked out pretty well. Finally cracked 111 with driver, with a 114 after the workout. Still stuck on 120 with the green stick, though. (If you didn't read my intro, I have no headroom in my garage or basement to swing something the length of a 3W, so I have to do it outside.)

I also did a variation of the dynamic warmup prior to playing. I forgot to take the red stick with me, so the last bit was with my orange whip, instead. I liked doing it that way, but will experiment to figure out what works best for me.

@ChasingScratch - I went for a fitting after being a tester the first time around. I had picked up some pretty good clubhead speed at that point. I was coming off of shooting a 69.

 

He really didn’t change all that much. I do think he moved me into a driver shaft that was too light for me, but the fairway woods that he put me in were money - I struggled with the dispersion for about 9 months with that driver shaft. I was going to head back to my regular fitter to change shafts when I got picked for the Fujikura Motore test - this shaft suits me fine - I’m generally sitting in the mid to high 90’s with driver on the course - that’s a big jump from the low 90’s that I had slid back to when I stopped over speed training. I’m resolved to continue training this summer even in the Florida heat so that I don’t backslide again.

 

I’m back on the cusp of playing well again. Index is down to 5.1. We are just waiting for permission for our league to resume play - looking forward to that.

Also auditions for the 14th spot in the bag.  Current possibilities are a Ping 26 degree hybrid - duplicates the 9 wood or 5 iron but would be used almost exclusively for chipping or Tour Exotics 3 wood simply because you can carry 14 clubs and I might occasionally hit it in certain unusual wind conditions once every four or five rounds.

3 and 5 wood shafts are usually heavier than driver shafts. Maybe if you just put a heavier shaft in the driver you’d get the benefit of a larger useful speed range and improved tempo? Idk, just spit-balling.

I personally like heavier shafts in driver and woods. I had one of those white headed TaylorMade Burner 2.0 Super Fast drivers back in the day. The shaft was something like 55 grams. I couldn’t feel it at all. Felt like I was swinging an alignment stick. I could swing it fast though!

Love seeing everyone getting progress and so involved. Can't wait to get started when I do get them!

Headed for my first round of the season later today and will put up some pictures. 

Again awesome to see the involvement and before even getting them I'm convinced of these things!

The Motore is heavier, and a little stronger, it’s exactly what I needed.

Both my wife and I use the orange whip as part of the warm-up before the protocol. Good way to get that swing going.

Yeah I have the skilz stock knockoff if the orange whip and like it to help loosen up the muscles. Just a handful of back and forth going a little further every time is good for me. Then some 6 iron swings getting progressively faster.

That seems to have me at my at the higher end of my normal swing speed.

Saw this last night... I’ll be trying some of the feels here during lunch today to see if it can help me break past 126 with the green stick.

Whelp, first major incident of adversity.  I don't know if I slept funny or it was from bad posture while playing video games with my son yesterday, but my back is having spasms like crazy right now. 

I mean even turning causes it to flare up.  This sucks.

I'm not going to be able to do my Week 2 Day 2 session today.  I tried making a few swings and it just ain't happening.

Hopefully I'll be better tomorrow...

 

It sucks because today the weather is actually on the cool side and not humid at all. We have a massive rain system coming in and it could be raining for over a week.

Looking forward to seeing the results.  I've been doing the super speed training for 10 weeks now and have seen my swing speed go up 10 mph from 97 to 107.  I can hit 110 with just a slightly bigger turn too.  I've also started to hit a draw as my natural shape rather than the fade/slice miss that I've struggled with my whole life.  This is a great system! Glad you all get to experience it! Thanks to MGS for the tip!

Dont want to take to much away from the superspeed training but that video is fantastic. around the 12 minute mark that stomping of the heel really reels in his dispersion and clearly jumps that speed way up. I have a lot of these tendencies already not as much rotation but the knee and heel action is simliar but my issue is staying down where i tend to already be upright at contact thats where I lose. Anyway back to the superspeed training sorry boys.

Funny you mention this video. I watched Ian go through all of his tweaks yesterday, and I tried a few of them today during my routine (namely the left heel), and it did seem to help.

Took five swings with green club to finish session - 130, 137, 135, 134, 132.
