    Paul,
    I use the SSRTT. It is a very useful tool to give some feedback to gain confidence. I wish it was back lit or something because most of the time I get to the driving range is at night.

    Thanks!

    Hi Paul,
    What is the diference between Swing speed (what I understood is equal to club head speed) and tempo? Is it something like rythm of the sequences?

    Thanks for all the other great things your tips have done for my golf until today!

      Reiner,

      The tempo is what speed you are swinging at and how consistent you repeat this speed over numerous swings. The clubhead speed is the overall speed of the club as you swing it.

    Guess what I got for Christmas! Playing around with SSR with different clubs what kind of speeds should I expect to see? How much difference is there between a driver and pitching wedge? What would be the best way to use it? Challenge myself to get speeds higher while staying “effortless”?

      Patrick,

      There should have been a card included showing swing speeds. They will vary with the different level of golfer. You have seen me around 116 with driver. I haven’t used it for other clubs.

      Just carry it with you and use it to measure your swing speed over time. It is not about whacking away at it trying to see how high you can get it to go. I know you will do this the first time you use it. After that track it over time. Keep working on increasing the rotational speed of your body and loosening your wrists and you will see your speed gradually increase. Hit it as hard as you can with your arms and it will go slower.

  4. I always practise at home with the SSRT .It ‘ s amazing how small changes to your set up ,the loseness of your wrists ,the flexibility of your hips ,the push on your right big toe influences the clubhead speed !

    • Raymond,

      Exactly. This is why the Swing Speed Radar is a great training aid. It proves that these things are improving your swing. Keep using it.

    Is there anything like this available in Australia?

      David,

      I’m sure there are other ones in Australia. Just do a search for “portable launch monitors.” These are doppler radar which have to be licensed in your country which is why they are not available there at this time.

    Bought the SSRT and began to “air swing” with my sand wedge … 70 MPH was my “natural” swing speed. After working on loosening up … I mean REALLY loosening up … my sand wedge (no ball strike, just air swing) is 95-99. Driver speed (again no ball strike, just an “air swing”) is 125ish … top speed to date is 134 MPH with an “air swing”.

    Unbelievable how much swing speed I’ve picked up by NOT swinging hard. I have also turned a consistent fade into a baby draw.

    Could not be happier! My playing partners marvel at how “easy” my swing looks … used to to grunt, but no more. I love playing “effortless” golf.

      Ron,

      That’s great that you are loosening up the arms and increasing your swing speed. I hope everyone is reading this. It is not about how strong you are. It about how lose you are and how you are powering the swing with your legs and hips.

      Keep up the good work.

  7. Hi Paul;
    I’m considering a new set of clubs & am wondering what I’ll lose by going back to reg flex from senior? Graphite. Thanks.

    • Michael,

      You may not lose anything. If you feel your swing is getting better then going to a little stiffer flex would be advantageous. Give them a try and see if there is a difference versus your older clubs.

  8. Thanks Paul;
    My only concern is losing some much needed distance.

    • Michael,

      So you need to be working on a loser wrist hinge and faster body rotation. This device allows you to see if you are improving.

      • I’ve had the device for quite some time but don’t use it much. When I did, I was trying to swing my arms faster which you already know is the last thing I should be doing. Thanks anyway.

  9. Funny you should mention the looser wrist hinge. Until today, I thought my wrists were loose enough until I noticed your swing in a video on “making the club feel heavy”. I found that if I loosened my grip a bit more, which I also felt was loose enough but wasn’t, my wrists hinged more easily & with my hip turn, the weight of the club actually pulled me into the proper follow thru position without losing my balance. As you stated in the video, it helped my arms to lengthen which is a flaw I’ve had for a long time, now being able to swing to a finish rather than letting my arms begin folding too soon as in the past which was costing me distance & causing a lower trajectory than I should have. Learning something new every day, even from your older videos. Seeing positive results certainly makes practicing more fun.

    Hi Paul,

    since my subscription with you, have managed to shave off 12 to 15 strokes, and it keeps improving with every tip of yours.

    I have a question, have bought one of the swing speed radars and been using it for practice,
    have noticed that I am able to reach upto 102 mph with my 3 wood, but with my driver only
    able to achieve maximum 92 mph, and with my 7 iron, not more than 80 mph, am I doing something wrong??

    thanks for your comments.

    with best regards
    Joyee, Dubai, U.A.E.

      Joyee,

      That’s great news. I love hearing about it.

      The Driver the club you want to hit hardest. The harder you hit the tighter your wrists the slower the club swings. Try again but keep your wrists really lose and feel your body powering it. Then you will see the speed go up.
