In our quest for the “perfect swing” (if it even exists), we often lose sight of the goal of the game. This article will be incredibly simple, yet, at the same time, make you say “huh, I never thought of it like that”.

The Game

Our aim in this game is simple – hit the target.

We can do that in many ways – shaping the ball high/low, from left-to-right or from right-to-left. We can shape the ball in varying amounts, and can even do it in a different way each time.

But the goal remains the same – hit the target.

Classifying errors

"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."
