Great list Kenny -

SuperSpeed recommends morning workouts - I quickly found out that I was faster in the late afternoon - do I did mine after work. It got tough after the move away from daylight savings, particularly during a January cold snap.

You also want to have a rest day in between -

Experiment with swing tempos to see which one creates the fastest speeds - think fast, not hard.

This just in, my club fitter said I could do pre and post testing on the GC Quad! Should provide for solid data.

Congrats testers!  @jlukes and  those of you that have been fitted:  Do you think your current setup will no longer fit due to the speed gain/change in dispersion?

I thought about this possibility. I got fit for the first time just about one year ago. While it would be a good problem to have, I’m not sure my wife would like it!

If it’s just a different driver shaft that’s one thing. But if the iron shafts have to change as well...

I am currently working my way up through the mini tours trying to make it to the LPGA. Right now my swing speed is at about 103mph. I am a very consistent driver player and am really excited to see if I could gain even more distance off the tee, allowing me to really hit some short clubs into the pins. 

Feel free to keep up with my journey on here and instagram! @alisarodriguezgolf

Thanks again to MGS and SuperSpeed for selecting me! Please let me know if any of you have any questions. 🙂 

That's sick! Nice to see some representation from female forum members. Good luck this season when it (finally) starts up!

Welcome!!! When I saw that you were selected and your “handicap” I thought, there’s a D1 or mini tour player. This could be a real game changer for you.

Much success in your journey!

So apparently today is Rory McIlroy's birthday.  Some argue him to be the best driver on tour right now.

His average ball speed with driver for the 2019 season was 179.45.

The PGA Tour average was 170.96.

My average from my most current driver fitting was 169.

Do you think SuperSpeed could realistically get me to Rory-level ball speed?

BTW, the leader is Cameron Champ with an unholy ball speed average of 190.7!  Gig 'em Aggies.

Absolutely! You’re realistically only trying to add 5 mph to your swing (1 mph swing speed ~ 2 mph ball speed) to get to the average Rory numbers. Good luck on the journey!

Well that was quick 🙂 and just in time for this cooler weather we're having. It'll be in the mid 40's this week - good time to start on this program.

Their customer service is top notch. I'm glad to see you've gotten them and can't wait to hear how the first sessions go. Have fun and swing fast!

Thanks!  It would be pretty awesome to be able to make that claim!  Looks like with a smash factor of 1.5, Rory's swing speed is 119.7 for that average.  If you drop the smash to 1.48, his swing speed is  121.25!  So for me that would be a swing speed increase of 7mph.  We'll see how it goes.

I would agree that you should get there - looking forward to following your journey throughout the summer.

So in addition to the forum posts and updates, I'm thinking about doing an ongoing YouTube documentary of the SuperSpeed program.  I would film pre-testing and post-testing as well as weekly updates with my training clips and thoughts.

Is that something y'all think would be helpful to the MGS members?

Do you mean logging swing speed before and after or videoing swing?

I think it would be a good thing, and I would watch it. When going through the 2018 review, I watched some YouTube about the system and saw some good videos and some bad ones. Recently, I watched once from Mr Short Game, whom I enjoy, and the review was pretty bad and funny at the same time. He was taking 10 swings with every stick for every protocol. Needless to say, he was exhausted at the end. It pays to read the instructions.

 

I do think a vlog would be an excellent idea, it would provide information for the forum and be a great way to keep the motivation up.

More of a video documentary of the entire process. Basically a video version of what will be happening in the thread. Some people are more visual and it might be useful to them.

I think it's a great idea. Maybe it's a combination of my age and personality, but I rarely do videos/podcasts (unless it's a YouTube video on how to fix my dryer). I would prefer to read and feel like I can read the same info in about a third to half the time that videos take. At the same time, I recognize many people love the format so I think it would be a worthwhile venture.

In other news, Mr UPS Guy is blocks from my house according to their app and the kick-off call is in 10 minutes.
