Some of you may know that I popularized (for golf) the idea of differential practice. For those of you who don’t know, here is a brief description of the term.

“Differential practice is where we attempt to explore variability befog what we would normally experience during the normal course of play”

An example of this might be trying to hit an intentional slice/hook, or a heel/toe shot. My previous study on this exact topic showed that gofers learned to strike the sweet spot more often when they had spent more time intentionally hitting the wrong parts of the face.

Completely counter-intuitive, I know.

So, we know differential practice works, but why?

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."
