One guy stands on the range; he has a 7 iron in his hand, an alignment stick on the ground and a bunch of balls next to him. He fires them off with amazing precision, flighting the ball towards his target like a heat seeking missile. He has a crowd watching in awe, as he repeats this in a robot like fashion.

Next to him, is another guy. His shots are ok, but nothing impressive. He hits the occasional really poor one…and even his best seem to be lacking. He is standing back after each shot, changing clubs up, and going to different targets each time. No one is watching. No one is in awe.

Tee time

It turns out that our two guys are best buddies, and they were warming up for a match play event together. They had been practicing for this occasion in the same way as above, for over a month now.

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."
