How Does Your Speed Compare

Do you hit it farther than all of your playing partners or are you the short member of your group?


Have you lost some yardage off the tee over the past few years?


Are you curious what it takes to get to reach the collegiate level?


These are questions amateur golfers ask themselves every day. Wouldn’t it be nice to know the answers instead of guessing? Now you can quit asking yourself why you can’t hit the ball as far as you want. Borrowing data from this article on the myTPI.com website, you can now check to see how you compare with your peers on the golf course and where you need to be to be competitive.




Now that you know where you stand, what should you do to get better? Swing speed is a result of having a powerful upper and lower body and the core stability to transfer that power into an efficient swing.


The three ways to accomplish this are 1) increase the amount of force you can produce, 2) increase the rate of speed at which you can produce that force, or 3) increase your flexibility for golf and strengthen the range of motion you can control.


To find out how to catch up to or stay longer than your peers, gain back the distance you had 10 or 20 years ago, or make the competitive leap to the collegiate level, contact Gateway Golf Performance today.
