Ever notice in those celebrity golf tournaments that baseball players hit a golf ball a long way?
Well, there’s a correlation between bat speed and clubhead speed that translates to the speed of a baseball coming off a bat and the speed of a golf ball coming off a driver face.
Today our esteemed DogLegNews Director of Instruction, Josh Koch, goes out of his comfort zone to see what short of ball speed he can create in a baseball hitting environment.
He’s with baseball power instructor Erik Sim and they’ve got a celebrity with them — Paige Halstead from the U.S. National softball team.
You’ll learn that the big power hitters in baseball create ball speed in the 100-plus range. Paige is an eye-opener when she takes a rip at it — 88.5 miles per hour — impressive.
Much to our surprise, Josh created some big-time ball speed and if you watch this video long enough, you’ll see Josh hit 99.9 on the radar which evokes all sorts of expletives from Erik.
In golf, we see ball speeds in excess of 180 miles per hour for some of the longer guys on the PGA Tour and the long-drive guys like Josh, create even higher speeds.
So you may find this week’s session a lot of fun, but be prepared for some flowery language if you know what I mean!
