GC2 – 150 mph and 220 mph ball speed

What lead you to choose your particular equipment specifications?

Feel, low spin, high ball speed, the guys representing those companies treat me well so I feel like I want to hit their equipment. They make the best stuff, simple as that.

Do you favor a particular shot shape to hit it long?

I try to hit them as straight as I can but the shape doesn’t really matter as long as I hit them with low spin.

Do you do any other types of training to drive it further?

No training aids, just basic lifting and athletic training at the gym and hitting balls on a range or in a simulator with some good music on.

Is there any particular bit of advice you would give the regular amateur for him or her to hit the ball longer?

Basically just work on your weaknesses…

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."
