I agree with you. I got so concerned about hitting the ball 300yrds that hitting the ball straight was a problem, so I learned how to hit the ball. Now my distance is much improved and I'm in the middle in the direction I want the ball to go. :thumbsup:There is a definate problem chasing swing speed.
It will become an obsession. If you let it all you will do is look for a faster and faster swing, before you know it you will be booming the ball miles but in the wrong direction.
Everyone has their own natural swing speed and tempo, use that - forget what the speed is.
I found the weighted club a better device to improve club speed.I found a device today at the store called the speed stick, they come in different lengths and are a little weighted. So you swing it like a club and it measures the speed of the swing, I was around 80 on my irons and 90 on the driver. Neat little device but its $100 for eack stick, In my opinion I would rather spend that on rounds or gear. C/C
