When it comes to hitting the ball farther, a lot of golfers realize that technique is important. In recent years, people are also beginning to recognize the importance of getting custom fit for your equipment in order to maximize driving distance and their overall average golf swing speed.
However, there’s another way to get more distance that most people don’t even know about (and how easy it is to do) or realize is possible… swing speed training.
How Important Is Average Golf Swing Speed?
It’s VERY important.
Sports Sensors makes a nice little general graphic that illustrates the strong correlation between club head speed and distance. Simply put, the more swing speed you have, the farther you’ll hit the ball.
Interestingly, Trackman research shows that there is also a direct correlation between your club head speed and your handicap.
So basically, it doesn’t matter how good your swing technique is…simply put, if you want to be a longer or better player, you MUST have more swing speed.
