    Guess what Sean, you’re not good at making custom Toulon blade putters that are supposed to sit square at address yet sits >10 degrees open when soled with minimal to no grip pressure at address and then charging $500 for them. Quit your day job, please.

    Wanted to but could not sit and listen to that echo. Guys, amazon sells mics for $80. That was rough.

    Fantastic technological discovery…. more weight in the head and hands, and less weight with a graphite shaft for vastly improved performance. This will destroy all the other putter companies who still have neanderthal designs. Callaway have a winner!!!

      Finally, 2019 and this momentous discovery in putter technology. Why didn’t the putter design scientists come up with this solution decades ago?

      Amateur hour. I produce TV commercials and you almost always use mics close to the chin, or hand-held mics just out of frame to the top. Never, never use the mic on the camera. Jeez.

Golf workouts at home for clubhead speed with PGA Pro Jaacob Bowden: Part 4

Published

on

Hopefully, you enjoyed your day off yesterday in our week-long golf fitness workout program. Depending on how you feel, take another day off if your sense that your body is telling you to do so. You know best what you are feeling.

However, assuming you’re ready to rock again, let’s get on to Day 5 and Workout 4.

Day 1 – Dynamic Swing Strength
Day 2 – Isometric Downswing Strength, Dynamic Swing Speed, Full Swing Repetitions
Day 3 – Isometric Downswing Strength, Dynamic Downswing Overspeed, Full Swing Repetitions
Day 4 – Rest & Recover
Day 5 – Isometric Downswing Strength, Dynamic Swing Strength, Dynamic Swing Speed, Full Swing Repetitions
Day 6 – Dynamic Downswing Overspeed, Full Swing Repetitions
Day 7 – Rest & Recover

Workout 4 is going to be the most intense of our five workouts. There’s nothing new for this particular workout. We’ve already done all the training blocks thus far this week.

For the strength exercises, do make sure you are trying to go up in resistance if you are safely able to do so while maintaining good posture and solid swing fundamentals. Raise the resistance proportionally in your speed exercises using the bands too. And of course, with your full swing repetitions, keep pushing there too.

To swing faster, we need to try to keep swinging faster and faster!

Workout 4 is an interesting one. If you don’t have time to do all five workouts from this particular week-long program, you can actually just do Workout 4 roughly twice per week and still get great results. It’s what I’ve personally been doing for the most part. For example, I’ll do the Workout 4, take 2-3 days off depending on how my body feels (and the weather since I’m doing it outside on this patio), then repeat, similar to this:

Day 1 – Do Workout 4
Day 2 – Rest & Recover
Day 3 – Rest & Recover
Day 4 – Do Workout 4
Day 5 – Rest & Recover
Day 6 – Rest & Recover

As I mentioned in the first article of this series, using mostly Workout 4 has led to these speed increase results for me personally:

– Day 1 – 117mph
– Day 2 – 122 mph
– Day 5 – 129 mph
– Day 7 – 127 mph
– Day 11 – 132 mph
– Day 14 – 132 mph

Okay, let’s go through the workout together in the video.

Clement: Important video on grip! (dare we say “historic!”)

Published

on

We so much love being historically correct! Back when I started teaching 35 years ago, when I looked at what the top 5 coaches were teaching, I knew I had to forge my own way. Not only did it not make sense anatomically, it did not make any sense neurologically either! Fast forward to today and we talk about ground forces and how to let the hips turn in the backswing and grip? WHOA, DID THEY MISS THE BOAT THERE!!

This video really takes the cake and REMOVES ALL QUESTIONS AND DOUBT ABOUT GRIP; where to hold it, grip pressure and IN OUR OPINION, THE FIRST TIME IT HAS BEEN REVEALED IN IT’S FULL ANATOMICAL FUNCTIONALITY.

This will end all debates about the “weak grip vs strong grip” argument!
