    Finally got on a reliable monitor when I was down in Nashville. As I suspected, I don't hit it as far as I want LOL.

    These were the avg numbers after about 15 balls with my driver and 2 others

    Angle: 14
    SS: 95 mph
    Ballspeed: ??? forget
    Spin: 3900
    Carry: 226
    Total: 240
    Smash: 1.4

    I need to figure out how to generate more speed.

    Instead of worrying about your speed, find a way to drop you spin rate. Over 3500 is too high.

    Your ballspeed would have been around 133 mph.

    Very similar to my numbers (except I had less spin) before I found the answer .... LAG! I got that from this lesson package I bought which for the most part was junk EXCEPT it emphasized lag and how to get it. And that was by NOT thinking about releasing your wrists. In fact, thinking of NOT releasing your wrists. They will release on their own after giving you the lag you need and your swing speed will go up. You'll think your clubhead is going to go over the top of the ball doing this but it doesn't.

    Word.

    Just tell people your average SS is 120...problem solved!

    Very few do. So many love to think they are smoking the ball down the fairway and it's carrying 260+ yds but the truth is far different. Once a player learns to accept that, then the game becomes fun instead of some crazy search to always find that magical extra 5-10-20 yds.

    One way to get more swing speed is to swing the club faster. I'm going to try that this summer, too.
