Consistent club head speed?


simplicity vs complexity
Apr 8, 2005
Was at Golfsmith again today getting my 2 iron reshafted. After getting everything all settled in I went to their practice net and start to play with some of the newer clubs that I haven't seen before. (I haven't played for 5 years; the Taylor Made R7 feel very nice and easy)

I clock in at about 95 mph for my irons, 105 for 3 wood and 110-115 for my driver.

Should I be trying to keep my club head speed around the same for all my clubs? or is it ok to be swinging faster with the driver? I don't try to do swing faster with longer clubs intentionally and I always tell myself to swing easy and smooth.

And how is tempo measured? It shows 1 for all my clubs.

your swing speed is going to be faster with the longer clubs and for me, i try to keep the same tempo with all my clubs depending on certain shots of course.

The difference in speed is due to the club length. Longer clubs have a longer arc, hence more time to gather speed. It's natural.
