Like many recreational golfers age plus physical wear and tare on my body and sadly a failure to keep up with my fitness had taken its toll so that as I moved into my 60’s my handicap had soared from a solid 1 to a lame 8 with the prospects of moving into double digits on the horizon, if I didn’t quit first. Not particularly long for my ability in the first place my driver swing speed had dropped from the mid 90’s to the lower 80’s and along with the distance loss came a great deal of inconsistency in ball striking.
I did attend to my fitness by enrolling in a program through my work insurance. Even though I lost over 40 lbs. I gained very little clubhead speed back and had resigned myself to moving up to the senior tees and living with it, until I read an article about SuperSpeed on My Golf Spy. Before I could purchase the system, I was given the opportunity to test it out through that same website.
Being a tester meant that I had to diligently follow the SuperSpeed protocols and after a short period of time, six weeks or so, I found that they worked. My driver swing speed had moved to the high 80’s and my ball striking was improving. Around the 20th week I had another “jump” and got up into the 90’s on average. Suddenly I was having playing partners ask how far I had hit that last one. I did slack off in training that year during the summer heat in Florida but picked back up again last winter and was sure to train throughout the summer this past year.
Thanks to Kyle and the entire SuperSpeed crew. They have always been responsive to questions asked, willing to look at swing videos to make suggestions, excited about yardage gains and encouraging through long plateaus where seemingly nothing was happening. This system works, it only takes an investment of three half hour sessions per week and as we’ve seen on the PGA tour this summer, increased distance leads to lower scores. My handicap index is back into the mid 4’s and what is more, I can play to it. Holes that had become driver, fairway wood are now driver, 7 or 8 iron again.
I would highly recommend the SuperSpeed system to anyone looking for that elusive ten more yards. You might find even more than that.
