When I first started coaching, I thought I was great.

I was lucky enough to figure out a few things very early on which gave amazing results instantly. Most of these things I still use today. I could tell a player “Just do X” and it would have an immediate positive effect on their strike and dispersion.

Due to this ability, I would get a lot of repeat customers – a player would come in with an issue, and I would correct it for them and they would go off happy.

However, I always want to get better as a coach. Due to this, I often critique myself and the lessons I give, simply to look for areas of improvement. This led me to the realization that, although I was making players better in front of me, it wasn’t long lasting enough.

"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."
