Love the show guys. This really came along at the right time. I have invested in my own home launch monitor system and love the feed back i get from it. I really like the notes and Links provided. Keep it coming please.
Love the first episode. Let’s get it named and on apple to subscribe. It’s a winner. Also love the notes provided to connect back to the concepts you discuss. Love it.
Very well done, gentlemen. Have really enjoyed The Practice Manual, Adam, and have ordered the Divot Board and the Swing Caddie SC200 Plus due to Jon’s recommendation. Also am doing Scott Fawcett’s Decade app, which has been great for strategy, and like you Jon, started the SuperSpeed program over this winter. Also downloaded the Tour Tempo app and in one session could really hone in on my tempo for long and short clubs and it absolutely de-clutters the brain during the swing. Don’t know if the two of you know James Sieckmann and his book Your Short Game Solution, but found it to be the best instruction on the short game. Maybe he’d be good to join a future podcast. Cheers!
Thanks, Joe! Appreciate the kind words. I’m a big fan of James Sieckmanns’s book, and we will look into bringing guests on to the show in the future.
Thanks for responding and looking forward to you and Adam’s next podcast. Not sure if other golfers have this issue but in using the Voice Caddie SC300 Plus on the swing monitor I can get my club head speed with driver up to 112-115 mph. When I switch to practice mode and hit the driver the speed is usually 100-105 mph. Is there a difference with how the practice and swing speed modes work and monitor swing speed or am I somehow slowing my swing down because of the ball being there. Thanks
