What is your longest drive in competition?

481 yards

What were the conditions of the drive?

15mph down wind, there was a hill at 390 i hit ghetto back side of it at it took off.

What are the fastest swing speeds you’ve recorded on a Swing Speed Radar and/or Trackman?

SSR 160mph, Trackman 141 mph… kinda makes you wonder what’s real huh!?

NOTE: This actually makes sense as a Sports Sensors Swing Speed Radar measures the fastest part of the club head (typically the toe) whereas a Trackman has an algorithm to measure the center of the club face.

What lead you to choose your particular equipment specifications?

12 years of trial and error, and sponsor changes

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

A straight ball

Do you use any training aids to work on your speed and power?

Over speed training, I use an alignment sticks with a grip on it.

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

I have never really trained for long drive, but I did Crossfit for fun, I think that helped a lot.

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

Swing faster more often, treat speed like any other part of your game…

"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."
