"My problem, like
many golfers, was that I came 'over the top' and had a poor impact
position (flipping at the ball). By using the Speedball, I've been able
to correct both these swings faults, plus I have restored my lost
distance without thinking about it - and that’s what makes the Speedball
such a great training aid."

The SPEEDBALL® teaches the feeling of Square Impact better than anything
else on the planet. And Square Impact is the most important factor in
achieveing straight shots. According to the book, “The Search for the
Perfect Swing” (the definitive study on the application of science to
the golf swing), to hit a ball long and straight boils down to three
1. Clubhead square at impact.
2. Clubhead moving down the target line at impact.
3. at Maximum speed.
The SPEEDBALL® uses a principle that we call FeedForward.
FeedForward means that you learn the feeling of the correct movement
thru doing the action. How is this different from conventional training
aids and video systems on the market today? Well, most just give you the
results of the last swing that you took, or only work on one aspect of
the swing. As many of you already know, those results that you get have
totally nothing to do with acquiring the correct feeling for the right
action. Just because you intellectually KNOW that you sliced the last
shot, or that your takeaway was too much inside last time doesn’t mean
that you can make the next one go straight. The current trend is video
analysis is a good example of this. Much time is spent in analyzing
exactly where every body part is at any particular point of the swing;
but as golfers have found out, just knowing this information doesn’t
mean we can change it. The reason that this information is totally
useless as far as changing your swing is that it does absolutely nothing
to give you the feeling of what you are trying to accomplish. The
golfer’s lament - “I KNOW what I should be doing, I just can’t do it.”
Bobby Jones stated that squaring the clubhead up at impact can only be
achieved by our subconscious mind....which is programmed by our
FeedForward principle. The beauty of the SPEEDBALL® System is that it
ingrains into your subconscious mind two of the most important and
difficult to learn essentials of the golf swing - (1) Squaring the face
of the club up at impact, and (2) acceleration of the club at and thru
The basic system is composed of the Striking Club, Impact
Target, Base, & Instructional Video Download.
1. The Striking clubs are weighted the same, and have the same
feel as a regular golf club. They come in mid-iron and driver sizes,
both for men and women and are custom made for children. The clubhead is
a ball that is divided into halves, one side white and the other black.
The black side has a cross of Velcro Strips. The black side corresponds
to the front of your clubface.
2. The Impact Target presents a one foot target that stands up
from the floor. The face of it is covered with Velcro. You place the
Impact Target on its Base. The idea is to swing thru the middle of the
Impact Target and stick the Impact Target to the clubhead as it is swung
to the finish.
