TGW has em, The Speed Stik is how they have it spelled out. I have just played with them in the golf store, I wouldn't mind having one to swing around in my garage during the winter time.Looking at Dustin Johnson's ag previos issue of Golf Digest, he mention the Big Stick training aid...
All I could find was Big Stik on ebay? Same thing or?
Anyone try one?
My mistake, I thought good form was the trick to golf...that a good swing gave you distance.The Speed Stik is an amazing golf training aid that will empower you to hit the ball farther by increasing the speed of your swing. SPEED = DISTANCE. The faster you swing the club, the farther you will hit the ball. It’s simple: FASTER=FARTHER. Swing 10 MPH faster and gain 25 more Yards (sic)
Right, but...Distance is all about clubhead speed.
Look at how fast the long hitters swing, Bubba Watson swings (≈130mph), and he's a huge hitter. A good amateur swing is a little over 100, though some folks just seem to 'figure it out' and have a much faster speed.
Sure form is where it's all about, and keeping the ball under control, but speed is where your distance comes from.
I have been told time and again by my teacher that I am slowing down my own swing because of my form.
