    Wonderful to read about this - sounds like she has some real passion for golf and the right drive and frame of mind to develop her game and keep improving. What a wonderful thing that you and she can share. I relish the time that I get to spend with my 13yr old son on the course or practice area.



    One thing that I wanted to mention is that I think that you will see as much or more improvement in her distance through improving the technique of her swing and hitting the sweet spot more frequently with the right swing and launch angle than with building strength and swing speed. It’s always been my impression (albeit a novice impression) that time spent building speed and strength show the most benefit once the swing technique is sound. As my son grew and improved, at each stage when it came to distance, the greatest improvements came through improvement in technique first and then size/strength. Of course there is no issue in working both sides at the same time just that expectations on which side will produce more/earlier results should be balanced.

    Rich...huge fan of you and Ella! In addition to the distance gains, the consistency in her swing from week to week with a different length driver is outstanding. Thanks for the vids and the best to you and Ella!

    Thanks so much!! We are really bonding over the experience. We took some online lessons with Dan and she is working on the changes. Her 7 iron is just night and day straighter! Its going great! We are going to work our butts off this week and hopefully it shows on saturday

    I noticed in the video, I think you said her new driver is 39.5"...is that correct? Would be interesting to do a speed comparison with a longer driver. She may be able to handle something around 42", if the weighting is right
  • rich srich s Posts: 492 ✭✭
    She has a 40.5” long driver as well but hits this one the best so far. I will see if we can do a comparison video though

    She looks good



    Should try to get weight fully to left side after impact and into follow thru



    And most important, she seems like a very kind a RESPECTFUL girl who loves her father
