You were right. Speed without technique is bad.


Recommended Posts

Well, bad for my wallet anyway. 

I hit a piece of plywood on the ground, like a dunce, after I finished my workout and kept practicing my bad technique. So, maybe actually it was the technique practice that is costing me…🤔 

Pro shop said they couldn’t fix it, so I already ordered a replacement, because even though I haven’t been getting the fast gains others have seen, it’s clear the system is a step above the others I’ve done. My Grit score is going to suffer too. 

 

Am I the only one?

This would have to be an advertisement for Speedsticks or Rypstick. No plastic bits!

There's karma for you! 

Ended up skinning the carpet at the gym with my Rypstick and pulling up a heap of thread. 🤷

Karma always gonna get you, haha. The shaft broke on mine, though it’s tough to see from the picture.

I think it’s metal underneath the yellow cap, though the part that is glued to the shaft feels plastic. 
 

In my old apartment I also hit the wood ground with a superspeed stick and had to fill it in. Clearly I’m proving how good I am…

Cannot speak to your speed training system - there are other threads already discussing those - but as to the title "Speed without technique is bad" I am completely in agreement!

I've been taking a series of lessons, and doing the drills the instructor suggests and practicing and .. over time .. I can clearly see my swing technique improving with the result that for any given club I'm picking up distance (and, generally but not always 😉, narrowing my dispersion!). IMHO and what seems to be working for me is that you need a solid foundation first to build up on.
