How to increase golf swing Speed Golf Swing Speed Pro Pablo Martin

"Jaacob's work is great. It's pretty straight forward. There are no magical tricks and it doesn't mess with your golf swing. If you follow his advices, you will drive it further."

Pablo Martin, 3-Time European Tour Winner, Increased Max Swing Speed from 119 mph to 128 mph


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."

Gary S, Premier Member


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."

24 Years Old, Premier Member
