As fellow equipment junkies, I’m sure many of you have already heard about mine and Tom Wishon’s Sterling Irons single length irons. We’ve been getting tons of press and great reviews (we’re in Sports Illustrated Golf Magazine this month on page 87) and I’ve brought them up here and there over the last year or so.

Usually with golf clubs, you only get to see the end-product that comes with all the marketing hype and fancy words meant to get you to buy the product.

How it All Got Started

In 2007, I was pursuing a golf career and had come far from being a 27-year old 14-handicapper four years prior. However, I hadn’t yet broken 70 in a tournament. Obviously, to make it as a pro you need to be able to shoot that low on hard golf courses. As such I was looking for ways to break that barrier.

Swing Man Golf Premier Member Gary S

"Working with Jaacob's swing speed training programs I increased my speed by 12 miles per hour in one month. The game is a lot more fun with the driving distances I'm hitting them. Now I'm reaching greens in two more often. Swing speed training really works."

Premier Member increased Golf Swing Speed to 130 Mph

"When I first started the swing speed training I was very skeptical it would do anything for me because I was already swinging at speeds close to 130 mph. But I wanted to get to the next level and be able to compete in Long Drive Events. So I gave it a try. I gained 13 mph in just one month of the basic swing speed training."
