Joshua McClellan says:

I started hitting around 80% to 70% and its made me a better player

Chris Ogden says:

You have a great swing mark thanks for helping me !

Adam Martin says:

Swing hard first, get accuracy later. Get the speed going. Then learn to curve the ball both ways, and get accuracy AFTER distance. The average male can exceed 110 mph consistently, most are certainly strong enough. People are always told to swing easy, which is complete bullshit. Swing hard mate, go after it around 95%. 85% is not easy swinging, it's hard swinging with an aspect of easing back barely. 85% is only 15 off of 100%. If you swing around 90% of your full power, you'll get extra distance than if you swing what the average player does at around 60%. I actually hit the ball straighter the harder I swing. Just a thought.

Ryan Jurgens says:

When I try to hit it too hard the ball hooks or ends up snap hooking.

John Clark says:

Great stuff Mark. Natural instinct for 99% of golfers is to try to hit it too hard.its called the kill instinct. & it's VERY difficult to stop. great vids,more please.john

Ben Dover says:

ooohhhhh Mark your glasses are getting so steamy, turning me on!

Brian says:

I built a plane board, used it, and discovered my 90%-100% swing speed was throwing the club over plane. Now I swing at less than 50% speed on plane, with a shorter backswing, and compress the ball almost every time (prov1), and hit it farther!

P ainter says:

I've reduced my swing speed and am hitting the ball farther. I've been working out with large flex bands instead of weights and have seen my distances increase – I hit a 348 yard drive, into a 12-15 mph wind up a slightly inclined fairway! I have never hit anything close to that before. I'm an athletic 68-years old, always walk the course, workout five days/wk., and try to improve my swing when I don't have a club in my hands by visualizing what I what to see (and feel) in my swing. I'm just starting to get this after 50 years of playing golf!

ThRealNickMercs Haines says:

I play a 60% swing speed and its working great for me. if I try hitting it hard, it goes a lot higher and not nearly as accurate. I'm happy with a 60% swing speed which goes low, accurate and where I want

Mike says:

this guys eyes! hahahaha

Robert L. Edgar says:

nice trick!!!

nick lujan says:

Did you move to Spain?

Jerry Lawrence says:

It wasnt until I played a few rounds with the inlaws, that I noticed the mother-in-law always won. We the typical males always tried to kill the ball for distance, where she played relaxed and with precision. A lesson well learned from watching her.

theMANxGOLFER says:

I notice my swing gets longer when trying to get a long drive. This modifies my sequence slightly as you talked about. Keeping the swing more compact rather than reaching back is the real difference based on footage I've seen of myself.

Jay Smooth says:

I like to make my stock swing about 75%. There are times when different swings speeds are needed. Stock swings allow me to use a very controlled 75%. If I was in the wind I may take up a club or more and stay with my 75. If I gotta get the ball up quick and still carry then I may go down one club from stock and swing at 85ish. That is the beauty of it all. What I am referring to is my game and your game. Our decisions play a large role in such simple things. I am one of many from my home course who even seem to realize they even have these options. Of course there are the few who do know but never utilize it and still can't understand why their accuracy is spotty. Not saying we have to do this. To each his own, but is your own working?

Jack Wilson says:

Hi can u do a review on the new speed line from Dunlop I'm really interested in what sort of woods to get and heard these are really good and maybe you should compare this club to one of the bit worse driver like the sldr and ping woods

munky220 says:

"Gorilla and Steve hit further……not much in it…" Depends if you're pacing the yards or not I guess 🙂 hehe

J@D W says:

People would probably improve contact and distance if they would swing the handle at a nearly constant speed and let the clubhead swing fast.

isak foyn wahlqvist says:

Must say mark, the swing you swung there looked really nice ang a good compression on the ball 🙂

Gee James says:

hi mark can you do an end of year in the bag update?
loving the videos, Gee

dannybear14 says:

played this course last month and made a beautiful birdie on this hole! the 3rd is tricky I found!

I am the same, due to my build I cannot take a full backswing, so I try for more control 75% of a swing with accuracy rather than power

Swelex SoSl says:

Any certan reason why u play an iron on the first tee on Mar Menor? I usually go for a 3 wood or driver, (16 year old, 6,9 handicap, swinging at 92-94 with a 7 iron) Just wondering, since i play there a lot. 🙂

golfninja says:

Smooth from the top (transition) allows you to build up the club speed through impact.
