Speaking of faster swings, Momentus Golf has come up with a training aid that is designed to help you increase your swing speed. It is called the Speed Whoosh. The device looks like a four to five inch plastic golf ball on a stick. The ball is magnetic and the action of the ball sliding gives golfers the feel of a proper release of the golf club. They believe it will easily increase swing speeds by seven to 10 MPH in just six swings.
As you swing the device, the golf ball slides down the shaft. According to the Momentus staff, the “ Whoosh” also reduces the tendency to cast the club from the top. Practicing with the “ Whoosh” is supposed to add 20-30 yards to your drives. Jamie Sadlowski, former REMAX World Long Drive Champion has used it.
According to the people at Momentus, it was developed using the same theories and training techniques used by Olympic athletes to get faster. It is like a speed drill for golf, something that has not typically been practiced in the past.
