I had taken some time off from the Superspeed program because I had a non-functional driver swing (too many snap hooks) that was not the fault of the program whatsoever. Was more me learning how to properly hit driver.

I'm ready to start the program again now that I learned to hit a driver properly. Currently, I am maxing out at about 260 yards total distance off the tee, as measured by Shotscope. That's definitely not my average, my average good driver shot is more in the 230 to 240 range. My goal is to get up to the 250 to 260 average range (total distance) without feeling like I am swinging out of my shoes.

Did you test yourself yet on the Advanced Speed Drills?

I have not. After you posted, I went to the SuperSpeed site and checked them out. If I can get to the course early enough tomorrow, I'll try the Level 1 and Level 2 tests and report back.

Late getting posted on this but quick update on progress.  Lefty golfer, slow swing group  yellow, green blue sticks,  

Finding that I have certainly hit a speed plateau, yellow being the lightest I'm hitting 102/103 mph avg , hit 105 mph once weeks ago and have not topped that since, green, I have hit 100mph on the step swing and close on the "normal" but again mostly a flatline the last few weeks.  Blue I have seen some progress with as my "heavy weight"  but not seeing any big step changes like prior to this stage but still happy with what I am seeing on the monitor, just need to find the fairway more on the course. 

Wrapped up stage 2 and now moving on to the next stage. 

WHERE AM I 

Improved Distance :  absolutely check mark yes

Improved Speed : absolutely check mark yes 

Accuracy --   ahh.. not so much but I was not that great before with a slower swing speed but I have had moments of sheer brilliance but the last couple rounds.. not so much. But the operator of the club is likely as much to blame as anything. 

Confidence:  when its on its on.. as i have said in past posts the difference in scoring I have seen this summer being able to go driver /7 iron/  instead of driver/3/5 wood/ has made golf more enjoyable. I still need a lot of work on my game and driver confidence still wanes but its getting better. Not being the shortest off the tee box builds confidence. TXG did a video regarding swing speed where the term removing the governor was used and that is something this program has helped me try and do.

Cant thank Superspeed Golf and My Golf Spy enough for this great opportunity, it has been a significant game changer for me as a slower swing golfer. 

Formal Stage 2 wrap up coming soon.,

If I remember correctly, you started around 80 mph, and now you can get the sticks to 102/103 on average? That's amazing! Congratulations. Maybe SuperSpeed sticks work, but you put in the effort and gained 25 mph. I admire your commitment. Guys like you and Tony really motivate. Thank you.

Since @SuperSpeed Golf mentioned the Advanced Speed Protocol tests, I did them at the range before league tonight. For those that aren't aware of them, the first is a turf tear test to see if you are using the ground effectively (do you damage the turf if you stand in the same spot for 5-10 swings) - I passed. The second is measuring the speed of a half swing (left arm only goes back to parallel). If it is not within 7% of full swing, they have a protocol to improve turn/rotation - I failed with about a 10% difference. The final one is a lag test where you measure wrist angles at the top and just after starting the downswing - with proper lag, the angle between forearm and shaft should get a little smaller when looking at those two points in the swing - mine was basically the same. Question for @SuperSpeed Golf: is it safe assume I should substitute the second advanced protocol until the half swing gets faster then start the third? I'm due to start Level 3 tomorrow, so it might be a good time to mix in some different training.

On the range, I had quite a few swings in the 114-116 mph range with a ball present, so the speed is definitely there, I just have to work on repeatable center contact and figuring out where the ball is going.

This happened tonight:

Screenshot_20200818-194711.jpg.040ce665c841d7f013e9e5bce3126796.jpg

I had pulled the ball slightly on the first driver hole, so I aimed at the cluster of trees. Of course I hit it dead straight and it actually carried the trees. I've never been past those trees before.

Sorry for the long post....

Nice drive @MaxEntropy!! Your speed is uh, fast!

 

what are you seeing through the bag?  1 less, 2 less into greens?

On the few occasions I've made really solid contact, it's been about a 3 club difference. On the hole above, the shortest club I can recall hitting into that green was an 8. It was also a back pin tonight, too.

3 less... dang. That is awesome. 
 

That would change my whole approach to the game having 3 less into greens.  Oh what fun that would be.

Haven’t started this program yet, but today I was playing and a few times I was hitting PW where I’d normally hit an 8... can’t wait to add even more speed.

Today was a slow day for SuperSpeed across the board with all of the sticks and the entire protocol. Not sure if it was the time of day, fatigue or whatever. I definitely wasn't in the mood so I 'forced ' myself - thinking a slow day is better than not doing it. After all a commitment is a commitment.

I'll have to check these out.  Been trying to catch up on Martin Chuck's video content lately, but I'll add this to the list.  So much content to follow!

I am one week out from finishing the Level 2 protocol!  I am proud to say I haven't missed a single workout, and I'm really looking forward to Level 3 and the chance to catch a jump!

I'm on vacation next week and had planned to rest too, have some nagging aches & pains around my left shoulder, elbow and thumb...this week ended up being pretty crazy, ended up taking it off as well.  Hopefully I'll heal up a bit 😉

With the exception of one skipped workout, I have been able to stay on schedule. Today was day 2 of Level 3. The step change is replaced with the double step. Adding a 4th swing at every swing type is a bit more tiring. I'm glad the weather has been cooler this week.

Speeds were good - I hit 128 on all three final green stick swings, so I was a bit disappointed to only reach 117 in my final driver swings. Maybe I was trying too hard since I know there is more in the tank.

I did a work out today at 1 -

I'm just doing maintenance to keep the speed up and get me to some cooler weather - I failed at this last summer - let the heat get to me - I have hung in there this year - level 0ne twice a week since I made it to the end of level 2 back in June - I intend to pick up with level 3 towards the end of September (it's a bit less humid at that point.)

Today was brutal - so humid - dew point index in the high 70's, I went through two tee shirt and three gloves in 30 minutes.  It's just hard to keep your clubhead speed up when you feel like the club is going to come flying out of your hand.  Still my speeds were acceptable, not top end but reasonably close enough and I certainly was moving the ball out there on the course in yesterday's round despite it being windy, wet and again extremely humid - because we played at 2 we caught a sea breeze after 5 or 6 holes - the way that shifted we only had 2 down wind holes the entire round.  Despite that I still managed a personal best drive on 1 hole - it's normal driver 6 iron or even 9 wood into the wind and driver 7 or 8 iron down wind (long and narrow green.)  Yesterday I had driver/PW to a back pin and hit my approach shot past pin high (I did that a lot in the round.)

 

I'm very happy with the results of Superspeed round two.  Sorry that I ever stopped last summer.

First day of level 2 week 4 today. Man I felt fast!!!!! Buuutttttt, radars didn’t show anything crazy. I definitely felt refreshed. I did have both a PRGR and a SwingSpeed radar going. I was able to catch missed swings with either or, which was nice. When PRGR would read 10mph slower than the previous swing, SSR would pick it up (and vice versa). Driver wasn’t spectacular. Again, suspect. All in all, happy to be swinging hard and having mental energy to do so.

It was also my son’s (1st grade) first day of virtual learning, so that was entertaining and frustrating all at the same time.
