If you want to add some serious speed to your swing — and in little time — look no further than the Stack Speed System training aid.


What do you get when you pair a biomechanics professor with PING’s vice president of performance?

Swing speed. Lots of swing speed.

Dr. Sasho MacKenzie and PING’s Marty Jertson are two of the brightest minds in golf today. Thank them and their research for the distance gains realized from the Tour on down the past decade. If you’ve missed out, no problem. The pair teamed up to invent the Stack Speed System ($349; thestacksystem.com). This training club is designed to provide auditory feedback while five different weights (30 combinations in total) allow you to train at your own pace.

The Stack

This dynamic speed training formulated by Dr. Sasho MacKenzie will make you faster in no time.

Accompanying the club is an app, which uses a proprietary algorithm to guide you through personalized speed-training workouts, produce metrics and help you set goals. Put in the work and the ball won’t know what hit it.
