3 products you can buy that can boost your swing speed this offseason
So many golfers across the country are locked in what is undoubtedly the worst part of the year: The offseason. Cold temperatures, bad weather, and holiday obligations generally aren’t great for the game. But it also presents an opportunity to take a good, hard look at the game and take some steps to improve it.
You may not be able to play as much golf, but that can be a blessing in disguise, because you’ll have more time to work on some things in your game that may be holding you back.
For many of us, that means gaining swing speed. And with a number of training aids on offer that you can use to build speed from the comfort of your own home, now might be a great time to invest in one and get a few more mph on the clock.
Here’s a few that made our recent “Best Of” list which could help…
Training Aid #1
SuperSpeed Golf Training System
Over the past few years, the SuperSpeed Golf Training System has become a darling of PGA Tour players, including Phil Mickelson, who says his swing speed jumped four miles per hour in one season with the help of the training aid. Use three weighted clubs with the SuperSpeed’s six-week training program and the company guarantees a minimum five percent jump in swing speed.
Training Aid #2
Orange Whip Tempo Trainer
Training Aid #3
SKLZ Smash Bag Golf Training Aid
The impact bag is an instructor fave, partly because of its simplicity: Chuck it on the ground, address it as you would a ball, and hit it — as you would a ball — as hard as you can. It’s great for speed training and learning to compress the ball through forward shaft lean.
