SuperSpeed Golf - What is SuperSpeed Golf?
The buzz surrounding Tiger Woods during the 2018 PGA Tour season has many golf fans feeling like it’s 2005 again. Despite having not won a Tour event since 2013, Tiger’s name is back atop one PGA list. With a swing speed clocked as high as 129.2 mph, Tiger’s newfound, post-surgery swing is the envy of the Tour, and has players around the world scrambling to find extra swing speed.
While swing speed like Tiger’s is something only a lucky few will ever possess, for average players looking to add a few yards of carry to their swings, there is a solution, and one GLT Golf has seen provide as much as 10 extra mph swing speed.
Using Overspeed Training, SuperSpeed Golf helps golfers hit the ball father by swinging faster, not hitting harder. What is overspeed training, you ask? Overspeed training is a process that creates faster than normal speed during a known motor pattern.
During overspeed training, response speed is increased by reducing the load (in the case of SuperSpeed, the weight of the golf club,) then gradually increasing the load to teach the brain that the body is capable of running the motor patter faster.
After just one use of SuperSpeed Golf, players can expect to see an increase of 3-8 mph in swing speed; furthermore, when the SuperSpeed Golf program is followed in 3 workouts a week for 6 weeks, the increase in swing speed can be expected to become permanent. Speeds then continue to increase through progression of the SuperSpeed Golf protocol levels.
Increases in swing speed can be monitored using launch monitor technology (GLT Golf recommends Trackman.) And remember, every 1 mph gained is equivalent to roughly 2.6 yards of carry, meaning an extra 26 yards of carry can be added to your swing after using SuperSpeed Golf for as few as 6 weeks.
