One of our members sent in a message to me on behalf of his friend who is recovering from shoulder surgery. His friend was looking for a way to change his swing to be able to still have a reasonable amount of power yet minimizing the strain on his shoulder.

Premier Member increased Golf Swing Speed to 130 Mph
