13.) SuperSpeed Golf Training System

We believe that every player deserves and is capable of hitting the ball farther. Whether you are an accomplished competitive player or a weekend warrior, adding distance to your tee shots will help you lower your scores and have more fun on the golf course.

Everyone wants to bomb it off the tee and take that walk to 30 yards ahead of your nearest playing companion. For many golfers this sounds far too good to be possible.

With all of the gimmicks and false claims of many training aids on the market, we understand! That is one of the primary reasons that our team of expert coaches and fitness professionals at SuperSpeed Golf decided to launch this training system to the public. Our team has been working with the concepts of overspeed training for many years with our own private clients.

We have found that using lighter weight clubs in specific training can help every golf increase swing speed, maximize biomechanical efficiency of the swing, improve consistency in ball striking, and reduce many common swing flaws caused by inefficient sequencing of the golf swing. We spent years determining the optimal weighting breakdown of our SuperSpeed Golf Clubs and the most effective training protocols to maximize our player’s progress.

The result is the SuperSpeed Golf Men’s Training System. This training system is optimized for players who play a standard weight men’s driver with an overall weight between 300 and 325 grams. This set includes the Green (light), Blue (medium), and Red (Heavy) weighted SuperSpeed Clubs. Our players will swing all three of these clubs in a light to heavy progression during our overspeed training protocols.

We find that players typically gain between 5% and 8% additional swing speed over the first 4-6 weeks of regular practice. Each training session only takes about 10 minutes to complete. We recommend 3 training sessions per week for optimal results.

So, if you have an additional 30 minutes a week, wouldn’t you like to add 30 yards to your tee shots? Purchase your SuperSpeed Golf Training System today to get started!

Product Description for the Senior Training System:

It is a true fact that as our bodies age it becomes increasingly difficult to create a powerful and consistent golf swing.

We are in the market to help curb this trend by offering a simple and easy to use training system to help you regain range of motion, stability, and power. This will help you hit the ball farther, higher, and more consistently than you thought possible. Join many Champions Tour players who have found great success with the SuperSpeed Golf Training System.

Our team has been working with the concepts of overspeed training for many years with our own private clients. We have found that using lighter weight clubs in specific training can help every golf increase swing speed, maximize biomechanical efficiency of the swing, improve consistency in ball striking, and reduce many common swing flaws caused by inefficient sequencing of the golf swing.

With our senior population specifically, we have found that adding SuperSpeed Golf has had a great effect in helping players improve range of motion, stability, and power in their swings. This has helped some players add over 30 yards to their drives and begin to be able to hit mid and long irons with confidence.

We have spent years determining the optimal weighting breakdown of our SuperSpeed Golf Clubs and the most effective training protocols to maximize our player’s progress.
