Ella and I just finished week 2 of the SuperSpeed training. We both hit our longest drives ever today! She has a new driver on the way (Ping Prodi G). She did some medicine ball training and exercises from JoeyDgolf on IG as well as a GG. She is worn out and I am so proud of her effort. I think the new driver will be a much better fit for her so possibly a big jump in distance coming!



Love the enthusiasm in the video!  Glad to see you're working with Dan as well.  Results have been great and can't wait to see more.  Keep it up Ella!

Thanks Leezer99! It was a good weekend. I have a strong feeling Ella’s new driver will be a much better fit. You can see in the video it’s way too short for her. She has the speed right now for 150 but just could not square the club face. She hits a 7iron like a champ though! Thanks for the kind words, this is a fun journey for the two of us :)

Wonderful to read about this - sounds like she has some real passion for golf and the right drive and frame of mind to develop her game and keep improving.  What a wonderful thing that you and she can share.  I relish the time that I get to spend with my 13yr old son on the course or practice area.

One thing that I wanted to mention is that I think that you will see as much or more improvement in her distance through improving the technique of her swing and hitting the sweet spot more frequently with the right swing and launch angle than with building strength and swing speed.  It’s always been my impression (albeit a novice impression) that time spent building speed and strength show the most benefit once the swing technique is sound.  As my son grew and improved, at each stage when it came to distance, the greatest improvements came through improvement in technique first and then size/strength.  Of course there is no issue in working both sides at the same time just that expectations on which side will produce more/earlier results should be balanced.
