120MPH Club Head Speed w Two Way Miss - Please Help!
Posted 15 April 2018 - 07:09 PM
You are a guy with a 110 mph clubhead speed swinging absolutely out of his underpants to achieve 120mph of chaos with piss poor mechanics and maximum effort. The fact you even put your club head speed in the post title makes me think it's purely ego driven and is the biggest thing holding you back from breaking 90.
First thing to fix is your grip. Would tell more face on but at this angle look at how underneath your right hand is. This is way too strong. You are a pretty good athlete and well coordinated so you're able to manipulate and correct things in the downswing to get square................sometimes. Since you're swinging beyond your ability the instances you can't time this well are when you develop a two-way miss. You can't play golf like this (as you've already noticed)
Honestly I think the best place for you is pitch shots at 125 yards. Really work on smoothing things out with a proper grip and compressing the ball with effortless power. Take the LEAST amount of backswing necessary and start with a 50 yard pitch, then 75, then 125 all with the same club (for me this is either a 50* or 46* wedge). Take this same level of rhythm and effort to the driver. Be willing to sacrifice a few mph for the sake of performing an actual golf shot. The average speed on tour is somewhere around 115mph. I'd be willing to bet all those guys could achieve 125+ if they didn't give a wet s*** about where it ended up.
Pause your vid at 15 seconds (top of backswing) and then compare it to any pro and the differences should be outrageous to you. I think the biggest reason for this is your grip, lack of proper wrist set, and overswing. You try making up for these deficiencies through raw athletic ability at the cost of control.
I never played baseball beyond junior level so this might be wrong/dumb but in your case I would maybe think of the golf swing as hitting a low inside pitch between 2nd and 1st base and having it land inside the foul line and in front of the right-fielder to guarantee a base hit if you've got some wheels.
Hope this helps. If not, see a real instructor and tame that athletic ability!

Focus on a good hip and shoulder turn on a flatter plane and make your number one priority creating a good even tempo and striking the ball consistently.
Stop measuring your SS every week. You ain't trying to launch a rocket to the moon 😏
Actually maybe you are ha. Longest drive tournies seem to be growing in popularity.
