There are no quick fixes in golf that will make you hit the ball perfectly every time, right?

While I constantly urge people to take a more realistic and long-term outlook on their golf, there are some things we can do (which are very easy to implement) to create much better results instantly.

This can involve a simple shift in your thinking.

An Example

Last week, a player came to me wanting to improve, ready for their tournament on the weekend. I watched them hit a few shots, and used Trackman to measure all of the ball flight data.

Next, I asked them what they are typically thinking of during a shot – to which he responded “shoulder turn”.

"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."
