As part of the new year, I was looking to get some of my old swing speed back up.

My max in 2015 was 133 mph and I registered a 200-mph ball speed. On the course, my playing swing was in the low 120s, which is high by tour standards, in the range of Dustin Johnson, Bubba Watson, etc.

Since then, I haven’t trained or played as much and my max had fallen back down to about 116 mph, which put my on-course playing swing at about 105-108 mph. That’s still fast in golf standards, but it’s low end by tour player standards.

For 2018, I’d like to get more focus back on my own game and do US Open, British Open, and PGA Championship qualifying. For me to be competitive, it’s important to have that old speed back. The game is just so much easier when you have more power.

As such, I decided I’d put myself on a 12-week training program…

"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."
