For those of you over the age of 40, you probably recognize the name of Roger Bannister. Roger was the first runner to break the 4 minute mile and after he did that, many others broke his record. (the modern equivalent is Kipchoge breaking the 2 hour marathon) The RBE was/is seeing someone […]
Let’s pretend you have 2 players. One is Rory McIlroy who swings 21/7 and one is an average golfer who also swings 21/7. Rory’s CHS is 125 mph and the average golfer’s speed is 105 mph… for the sake of the argument, let’s say Rory and our golfer are the same size with the same […]
I really enjoyed reading the book Tour Tempo and I love how it smoothed out my swing. What I am curious about is at 53 yrs young can I increase my speed and distance, without losing my smooth tempo? Can this be achieved with your speed tools and/or will new training throw off my tempo?
Hope you are well. Some of your clients appear to snap the bar from a higher starting position with a shorter range of “snap” – while stronger clients appear to be snapping from a bit lower starting position with a longer, more explosive “snap” of the bar. Is this something you are teaching? Also, are you using the concept of the “unweighted” front foot into the “snapping” action? If so, how? Appreciate any insights you can share.
One of the keys to unlocking speed in the golfer is overcoming ‘gravity’. As a speed coach, sometimes my biggest opponent is what golfers do a lot: sit and look at a computer. Over time, the golfer loses their athleticism to daily life. The golfer forgets that golf is a sport and swinging a golf […]
Here is a very basic program I put together for a father and son and they both picked up about 4-6 mph of club speed in around an hour. They are going to do this program 3x per week and we will see what happens to their speed! WARM UP Bands Around Knees side to […]
Check out the phenomenal swing of the 2018 PGA Club Pro Champ, Ryan Vermeer. Ryan is going to be playing in a few PGA tour events this year and if he could add some speed to this beautiful swing, it will go a long way towards him making cuts. Currently on the PGA tour, there are 100 players that are at about 170 ball speed or higher!
Ho hum, another golfer picked up 20 yards going thru the Tour Tempo Speed Training program. In this particular case, ‘another golfer’ just happens to be the PGA Tour Player, Chris Thompson, who already possesses good speed and a good swing. Note: the better the player, the better the swing, the more speed they have […]
In last week’s episode, I boldly made the claim that if you’re not a PGA tour player and your ball speed was under 170 mph, then it would be easy for me to get you that increase in speed and distance. Patrick Simard, a 32 year old mini tour player (played collegiately for Ohio State), […]
As a loyal reader, you know that my MO is to help golfers create speed and hit the ball farther than they ever dreamed. Over the years, I’ve seen speed and distance move to the forefront of all golfer’s minds as speed/distance creates: lower scores more efficient/better use of the body (better feel to the […]
