How To Increase Ball Speed?

by Maura Hutchinson

In this Q&A session, Mark Crossfield is asked "My club head speed is 110 but my ball speed is only 155, how do I increase this?”

Mark firstly looks at the biggest factor in this which is ball striking, if you have a powerful swing but fail to hit the middle of the club you will not get the optimal ball speeds from the effort you put in. Something else that is really important to look at the machine you use to capture the data, some devices capture the club through impact and some directly at impact itself, these different measurements will affect the speeds registered.
