I’m enjoying using the swing concepts of Dan Shauger (enjoyed you on the videos!

Jaacob’s Answer:

From an impact and conditions standpoint, here’s some things that can help you get those low spinners:

  • a good tour-level ball
  • a clean club face
  • an impact strike below the sweet spot of the club (this creates vertical gear effect and cause the club face to de-loft and add spin) – to keep this simple, just pick or sweep the ball (use Dr. Scholl’s Foot Powder Spray to see your impact point – it wipes off easily with a towel)

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."
