Below is a process I try to ingrain in my players. We work on the skills needed to improve their process.

This process is:

Identification of fault(s)

There are lots of faults in golf, but a lot less than you would think. To me, coming ‘over the top’ (for example) is not a fault, because you can do that and hit a perfectly good shot.

Whether you do or not is determined by other things such as:

  • Did you hit the middle of the face?
  • Did you hit the ground in the right place?
  • Did you present a clubface angle (open or closed) suitable for getting the ball on your target?

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."
