Response to Got a new Swing Speed Radar Yesterday

As I sat and pondered why my swing speed isn't as fast as I was hoping for, it suddenly occurred to me that I've spent an entire year mostly doing the slow motion PB exercises. I haven't been training myself to move fast. Sure enough I looked at several recent videos of my full swing only to discover that it's taking me 1.5 seconds to go from take-away to impact. When looking at several pro videos, they only took about 1 second.

High club head speed seems to be a combination of moving fast with good mechanics. I used to move quickly but had horrible mechanics. Now I have good mechanics but move slowly. Now that my swing seems to be getting very close to being properly "built" perhaps it's time to dust off the "Tour Tempo" CD and start training to move faster?
