I’ve said that the scourge of Modern Golf Swing instruction and practice is that people who have no business injuring themselves swinging feather-weight clubs in the modern age are doing so.
I mean, how do you hurt yourself swinging today’s driver?
Before I get to my point, I know all about the SSR and the issues with accurate club speed.
I wasn’t measuring the club speed because I only had the Swing Speed Radar device which, again, I knew to be unreliable for measuring golf club impact speed.
It was on July 28 of last summer, before other things took precedence and I had a break from the golf swing until after the season’s close in autumn.
I will use the last swing clip I shot that day to compare with the first day back hitting balls this season, at which point I may be closer to having been off for 9 months.
OK, so when Jerry “BT” Crowell and I began to talk about working together, he stated a personal desire to achieve 115 mph club cruising impact speed and a top speed of at least 120 mph.
At the time, he was around 110 cruising speed and top of less than 115.
“No problem,” I said.
