"I'm in my fifth week of the workout and people I golf with have been amazed at my improvements with my driver and three wood. I'm 76 and have increased distance so much that I had to buy a 58 degree wedge because my approach shots have gotten so close to the greens that I need to be able to chip balls high to stop on the greens. So far I've had two people and an instructor ask me for the website and three others in their sixties have asked me what resistance bands I used as well as the website for your workout. Thanks again." - @jamesringgold8823

"Your speed programs are insane, im up to about 120 in 2 weeks i hit 125 the other day.  i started at around 114 but its only been 4 workouts haha and its effortless... i drove a semi downhill dogleg left 365 yard hole the other day all carry, the ball mark was in the middle of the green." - Fred T

"Hello just to let you know after your basic training i have gone from 82mph to 100mph."  - B Singh

"Hi i joined your sight about 10 days ago and just wanted to say thank you i have been using your basic training but a bit more than just the 4 days a week, i was shooting around 20 over par and driving bout 220yards 10 days ago, i am now shooting about 14 over par and driving on average 270, i never thought i make this big an improvement in 10 days! thank you" - Luke D

"Just wanted to say thanks again.  I now drive easily between 260 and 270 yards on a drive.  I have hit 300 yards three times this summer each one straight.  My last nine hole round (yesterday) I shot a 40 on a par-35 9-hole course.  My best over a month ago was 7 over par on an 18-hole par-61 course."
"Last Monday (yesterday - Labor Day) I smoothed out the drive swing a little, practice some drives, and then played eighteen holes.  I hit two drives for 320 yards and one for 300 yards!  I almost could not believe it.  The ground was soft and fairly level, and the grass was a little high; so my drive may have gone farther if the grass had been cut.   My golf partner was so shocked he started asking my advice on his drives.  What a day!  Just had to let you know." - Jay D, 54 years old, 18 handicap
"Hi Jaacob, I am 52 yrs old with a 5 handicap.  I joined your website in early December with a 112mph swing.  Today,using your basic speed training I had a swing speed of 121mph." - Randy C

"Jaacob Bowden has put together a program that doesn't exist anywhere else. He understands the relationship between strength and speed better than any other instructor I've encountered. After less than a month of doing the workouts I was hitting the ball to places I had never been before on my local golf course. My distance improved from 250 yards to 290 yards-and I had several drives over 300 yards. At my age, I never expected to get longer. The workouts were easy to do and took less than 15 minutes." - Phil R, 55 years old, 10 handicap

"I'm pleased to say that I was only 133 at first but am already up to 142 after 7 days." - Jeremy C

"Not often do i meet people who know what they are talking about on the subject of swing speed." - Reto B

"When I began losing distance in my late fifties, I figured it was a matter of advancing age and didn't think there was much I could do about it. My drives were down from 240-260 yards to the 200-220 range, and I had to hit one or two clubs more on my other shots. But after using Jaacob Bowden's methods, my distance is nearly back to where it was five years ago. My drives are going 240 consistently, and I haven't sacrificed accuracy to get that extra length." - Joe B, 62 years old, 12 handicap

"Jaacob, First off, thank you for the great workout program. I can testify that if one follows your recommendations the swing speed will increase. I am now 62 years old and had open heart surgery, valve replacement, the last of Jan. 09. After the Dr. release, first of May, I started to work on my golf game and had an 85 mph swing speed. Summer of 08 my speed was 105 so I was disappointed that I had lost 20 mph. I started to use your program and within 6 weeks had improved to 115 mph. Golf season was in full swing then and I started working hard on other aspects of my game. My average swing speed is now 107 mph at the end of the golf season." - Reese B

"I have trained using Jaacob's programs for about 7 months. I have put in a lot of work on the speed training, but the results have been amazing. My swing speed avg. was about 112 when I started, with max of about 118. My new avg. is about 134 and my best has been 140. This year I made a double eagle with a 7 iron on a 565 yard par 5 to an elevated green and have finally shot some rounds in the 60's! Follow his programs, train hard, and you will get faster...much faster!" - Steve

Just a week ago I decided to get back on the program, and just wanted to write down my swing speed. Took 10 swings with an average of 103MPH!!! With a top speed of 112mph!!

Im currently trying to lose weight i go to the gym and do HIT training with swing fast to have a force growth U have made me a better golfer." - Eddie C

"I thought I would write a testimonial since I have been doing the program for just over 1 month and to my surprise have got the results promised. I was skeptical before I signed up but thought what they hey its a good price for a lifetime membership. I was even more skeptical when I joined and saw what the program actually consisted of. I thought there is no way that I am going to gain the yards the way the website promises with such an easy program. However after doing the program for one month and I went from 270 yd drives to 306. Thank you Jaacob" - Malcolm

"Hi Jaacob, I just wanted to say thank you for your site. I joined over the winter to find ways to improve my swing speed. I've gotten out a few times so far this year (NY weather is just now starting to improve), but wanted to tell you about my progression. Last year when I started training I had a swing speed in the low to mid 90's and hit an average drive of about 220 or so. Today my ss is around 115-120. The course I played today had two par 4's around 325 each. I was within 20 feet of the green on both! Thank you again Jaacob; it's a lot of work hitting 100-150 drives per day, but wow is it worth it!" - Ken S
"Thanks since by swing speed increased two weeks ago, my scores have dropped about 4 strokes to 76 -78. Much easier to hit greens now and I only practiced the faster swinging so far." - Lee G
