  1. looking for a vokey 56 degree RH head only....lmk
  2. I've been doing golf specific training the last 3-4 years, best years I've golf so far. Do I think my swing speed is higher? Yes, but I believe it has to do more with being more stable throughout the swing, more flexible and hitting the ball in the middle of the club face more and delivering a crisp solid blow. I already a pretty high swing speed but now I feel so much more stable on the down swing and through the ball.
  3. I played a strong grip as well where I usually get 2-3 LH knuckles showing. I do notice that if am not comfortable over the ball the grip is the first thing I start fidgeting with. I recently just realized that it's more about my setup and posture than my grip, when I feel uncomfortable. I've noticed the more and more I strengthen my grip the more I will early extend.
  4. I was working out 6 times a week so I did the Super Speed. I would start with the Off-Season workout and I believe it starts with Phase 1.
  5. Give the Fit for Golf app a try by Mike Carroll. Did the Super Speed training last winter and increased my distance by about 10 yards on all clubs. Stock 7 iron is probably 210 now. Driver was about 310-320 this year, can go get it and get 350. His program focuses a lot on driving power through the golf ball with lots of strengthening your rotation and core. Lots of explosive lifts and movements. The biggest benefit I've found are the stretches. I didn't have any lower back issues all year, which I've had in years past. I think I pay $12/month for the membership, well worth it. The only thing I had issues with, and it's actually a product of the program, it took me about a two months to learn to harness my new swing speed as I was pulling a lot and had to basically re-sequence my swing. I learned that through the winter I need to keep swinging once a week just to keep the same sequence if I keep increasing my club head speed.
  6. I play an extremely strong grip and for me to hit a fade I give forward shaft lean pre-shot and I point my feet and club head left and hit a push fade.
  7. I switched to overlap a couple years ago. Found I don't roll my wrist as hard and I can hold off for my fade easier. I've also hit the ball further and with better control. But that has more to do with my swing changes.

Better shape now then when I was in college. > > > > > > I take it you have no wife, g/f or kids. Maybe unemployed too? Lol I’m kidding but that is a lot of working out, > > > > LOL actually I have a wife, 4 boys, and am a high school business teacher. I wake up at 5:15 every day before school and on weekends I wake up at 6:30 before my kids get up. When my kids go to bed at night, I sometimes take my dog for a walk. Working out is a part of my life so I make it work for me. > > I was just kidding but my weightlifting seasons are usually an hour, it’s hard to add biking on the end because I will end up being in gym close to 1.5 hours then, if I then added yoga would be even longer esp 6 days a week that would be a lot of time in gym. > > I see you are doing the yoga in between sets so that would help on time. Yeah I work out in my basement and it takes me maybe 40 minutes max. I'm not trying to be down there for an hour working out LOL. I do literally zero rest in between sets, just get the heart rate up.
  9. Good basketball shooters dip the ball before they shoot it after they catch the ball and good golfers have some sort of trigger before they start their swing. Like mentioned above it's so hard to create a smooth start by starting static. I do a forward press along with a slight knee flex that drops me into a squat position.

I also quit putting any sort of weight on my back when lifting. So no back squats. Do lots of front squats, hang cleans, and hip hinge exercises.
