I used to do the 1/2/3 thing....1/2 works better for me anyway. Just thought it might be worth a try for some of you.

Like I said, I immediately picked up over 5 MPH of ball speed ...played the other day, more distance and no loss of accuracy. Being a +3 I'm not just beating it around .

Neil, what are some of the tempo numbers for LD,'ers? I remember mine being think 1.4 - 1.7 years ago. Don't have anything to measure it right now.


I'm 'old school' so I am even learning more to hate machines!

1-2-3 is what I always work with for guys also- tell them it is like dancing!

also have alot of guys that come from baseball background and explain to them in their terms-
power hitters- they start their swings with no back swing so #1 is pretty much a tempo starter taking the swing back

faster guys take their swing back so fast it can throw them off and makes it harder to set for their downswing -

alot of guys trying to hit it farther go back fast and momentum gets them so far back and off kilter they cannot get back to an impact position

hope it makes sense? tempo- timing- transition-sync-sequence are all words I try to ingrain in guys heads
stop at the top is another - then you got a chance

Neil, Maybe where I get some people thinking I'm nuts is that I'm still keeping my tempo... just speeding it up all around. I think people think I'm talking about throwing everything out of kilter. You can do the 1-2-3 thing just not 1------------------2-3. or 1-------------------------2------------------------------3 :lol: Actually 1-2 is easier for me.

I like the LM numbers but I get outside enough to see if it really works. Some things don't but this does. I really had a slow backswing and to keep my "tempo" even I was making a half assed pass at it. A more aggressive backswing has been, for me, leading to more distance. AND better accuracy... I get the accuracy because its a more fluid non thinking motion. Slower backswing I think about going outside and coming down from the inside and it actually throws off my timing. The faster tempo is no thinking and wow!

I see where it can get too out of control but I;m looking to get to that and then scale it back.

they had trackman set up behind the hitters at the speedway finals
they were hitting right under the grandstands into nets and guys were getting spin numbers in the 5000+ range
distances of 290-320 with 200+ ballspeeds
faster speeds on even the 'supposed holy grail' give bad results -
I get a lot of videos and launch numbers from ld guys and take them with a grain of salt

Thanks Doc....that'd be another shaft that would go the same as everything else for me. I plan on seeing Frank soon so I might compare the penley I have to an ad di if he has one lying around.

Since I have some time this winter to work on things I think what faster does is allow me to start the downswing with my legs before the backswing stops, thus creating lag and some more distance.

that would be one of my problems is getting my legs moving forward before the hands.
