I can practice for long driving and play good golf.
The first video below is of me swinging a 48″ driver, not as hard as I can, but harder than I normally swing when playing and practicing with my normal driver.
The second one is a 9-iron. Now I remember that swinging a long driver actually helps my swing. I turn better, my transition is better, etc. Why oh why did I listen to all those naboobs who said you can’t do both. I now know it’s not a coincidence that giving up long driving and my game going downhill coincided. Not the only factor, but an important one.
I maxed out at 126mph on a few Trackman swings and 184 on ball speed. There is no question that when I lose some weight, get a litter stronger in the core and upper arm and continue to dial it up to 100%. 135 mph and 200+ of ball speed is well within reach by October.
I could have maxed out at 130 today, but I would have hurt myself and learning to make better contact at those speeds will come with practice and result in higher ball speeds and distances.
I am going to be sharing videos of my progress and what I am doing to train.
Tomorrow, I leave to go work with Frank. He did not get in this week to the ATT, but he is likely to get in the next 5. The parallel goal is to get into the PGA and the top 125. He will likely get in many of the fall series events too.
