Speed training is going well, but ball striking is still wonky. 
New baby arriving Sunday, meaning even less time to practice (protocols won't be an issue since they are quick and I can do them whenever). 
I'm growing concerned that this will be a lost year of golf for me if I can't practice enough to make the speed training sync up with actually hitting a ball straight. 
Definitely something to think about if you're considering diving in to speed training 


Congrats on the new baby!!

When will that be, by the way?  How's the back feeling?


Hoping for next week Monday. Still some tightness that I just don’t quite trust. I’m thinking rest for the remainder of the week and then Mach 3 is back on.

So even though it was only one round post first day, things felt good and had a good warm up and found a nice groove. It may be my favorite course on the planet.... lots more to play but its just a really cool fun tough experience. Can't wait to keep getting faster and seeing how I can push my golf game forward!

Week 4 , session 2 in the books and seeing some of the best results I’ve seen to date.

Slow swing speed group and a lefty.

Position 1 normal

Yellow- 96/89 green 95/93 blue 89/84

Steps - 102/92 , 90/88, 92/92

Position 3- 95/95/95 Mph

 

On my last 3 swings I got 95 three times so I took one more swing and hit 100mph, just to make sure it was not locked up.

I’m very much focusing on my form now on the normal swings, so I’m really impressed to see the higher speeds on the last sets.

Great results lefty. As one of the really slow lefty's in this testing group, I hope to be your stratosphere of SS shortly.

Important change: I noticed as I was entering the data for this week's protocols that the initial driver swing speed I reported was the AVERAGE of the first 5 swings (96 mph), yet everything else is reported as max, so the Google sheet and my signature have been updated to reflect MAX of those first 5 swings (102 mph).

Week 4 is done. I find myself getting a little frustrated with the lack of change in much of anything over the last couple weeks (and my driver speeds declined somewhat this week). I know this is not unexpected but there are times the sound of the club or stick ripping through air tells me to expect a good number, then I look at the radar and see the same damn number, over and over. Here is a chart to illustrate my point....

image.png.cb4e0c93ec750e806d433fe7efa98a6c.png

I've pretty much been stuck at 120 with the green stick since the 3rd session.

I'm going to keep plugging away and trust the process.

As far as on the course, I've already documented that I am hitting things to the high end of my Arccos smart distance consistently and I think I mostly have a handle on the number of high flares to the right I was hitting, but I am inconsistent enough that it may change from week-to-week (or hole-to-hole).

To be continued....

@SuperSpeed Golf I know I’m not one of the official testers, but I’m wrapping up week 2 of the 2nd protocol and I have a bit of soreness in my right wrist. On some swings I feel a dull pressure in thumb side of my wrist. R.I.C.E. helps, but any thoughts on what might be causing that?

That graph really does look like a plateau 😲. i'm sure that a big jump is coming real soon for you.

O you're in a good spot there. You will see a jump soon. I have found doing this off and on over the past 2+ years that a lot of my right handed jumps come after I see a slight increase in the left handed swings.

First off one thing I have always seen suggested is to take a little time off when you start getting pains. Wrist injuries are some of the most common in golf so it could be a multitude of things. I will say thumb side wrist is a very fragile area so I would 100% be careful.

Yup! Boy #2! 

And appreciate the feedback, Shanks. I know it's easy to focus on the positive of items one is reviewing, but I want to make it tangible to everyone. People should know the good, the bad and the ugly and be able to translate my experience into their own life. 

The speed is real, but so are the side effects. Being able to work through everything is part of the program. What good is 10 more yards of it means 3 or 4 more lost balls per round. 

@jlukes often we can help trouble shoot this with those using SuperSpeed. As mentioned before this is the most common in the first level. If possible could you email us a mid iron and a driver video from down the line and face on? As well as include info on what you see normally versus now ball striking wise? Info@superspeedgolf.com

thanks!

I changed up my schedule to wed/fri/Sunday just due to work and other commitments. I usually golf Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday.

Anyway start of week 4 for me tonight in the slow swing bracket. (Also a lefty)
Top speed of the night came on the 3rd stage of swings with the yellow or super lite shaft , after the step swings. Topped out at 96mph, considering I am/was in the 80-85mph range I am happy to see the 10 mph gain.

I am surprised by some of the numbers i am seeing and not sure how to interpret it, Blue or medium weight is my heaviest stick and I was 89/89 so same top speed from left side as right side. Had the exact same results on the step swings with the medium shaft.

I am actually not seeing a lot of variation on the step swings from either side using any of the sticks, the super lite one had the biggest difference 94mph-89mph.

I feel like I am seeing some benefits from this system already, I played last night and hit 3 out of 9 drives over 235 , with my longest of the season in there at 253, hit a bit of a draw (not intentional) and it just went. Hit one 3w last night 231 yards on a par 5 putting me a short chip in and a birdie putt.

@Jbmullin great to hear! For most people the step change drill should produce a higher speed than regular standing swings. A few things to check.

1. make sure you are timing the step where the lead leg is moving before you reach the top of your backswing

2. really stomp the ground with the lead foot. Make a sound when it lands.

@zrumble do you notice it on more on dominant versus non dominant swings? 
you don’t have to use your normal grip during the speed training. Can try interlock overlap or ten finger. Whichever feels best.

Completely agree! I just wanted to ask to see if there is a flaw or technique issue that commonly leads to this pain when trying to go fast.

I only notice it on dominant swings (I’m right handed), and typically use overlap with a glove only on my left hand.
