Hi, my name is Rob Harrand. I’m a long time member of the TSG community and an avoid club-ho. I just wanted to introduce you to a brand new swing-speed and distance program I developed called Drive 400 - https://www.puredistancegolf.com/drive400/

 

Here is a promotional video showcasing some of the drills and exercises in the Drive 400 program.

 

Who Am I and Why Should You Give Me The Time of Day?
This part is never easy without sounding full of yourself but the internet is full of highly skeptical (fair enough), very judgmental, and occasionally violent individuals, so I don’t have much of a choice.

All joking aside, I’m a former long drive competitor with personal best swing-speed of 147mph (Trackman). I’m a former 2 x MLB draft pick. I used to pitch for the Philadelphia Phillies organization. My fastball was clocked as high as 96 mph. I played Div. 1 college Baseball and college Basketball. I’ve won six international slam dunk championships and my vertical jump was measured as high as 44 inches.

I’ve spent significant time with some of the most accomplished strength coaches and trainers in the world and far too many hours researching, analyzing and testing the body and mechanics in sport.

I'm well versed in developing explosive power and that’s exactly why I developed Drive 400. 

Today I own a Golf performance company called Pure Distance Golf, that, as the name suggests, focuses primarily on maximizing golfer’s club-head speed and distance with every club in the bag. 

 

Below you can read more details about Drive 400 and answers to some of the more common questions I receive:


What Exactly Is Drive 400?
Drive 400 is culmination of everything I know about developing maximum club-head speed and the exact program I used to go from swinging 112 mph to 147 mph in 12 weeks. I’m really excited about it and I think you guys will really enjoy it and the swing-speed gains you’ll get with it. 

It’s a highly specialized program but it requires no special equipment, no weighted clubs, no gadgets or gimmicks. It only requires a driver.

Drive 400 comes with three, fully integrated programs comprised of conventional and unconventional mental and physical training techniques:

  • The Drive 400 Swing-Speed Drills and Video Library.
  • The Strength & Power Training Program and Video Library.
  • The Nutrition and Sleep Guide.

Everything you need to swing faster than you ever thought possible is included in Drive 400. I’ve obsessively and meticulously designed it. 

Whether you’re just looking to outdrive your buddies, lower your handicap or make the PGA Tour, distance does matter and with Drive 400, I promise you, you’re going to gain serious distance.


How Much Faster Can I Expect to Swing?
I’ll never develop a program where you’re going to have to wait weeks or months to see improvement. It doesn’t have to be, nor should it be that way. I only consider information useful if you see improvement right away and that’s exactly how I’ve designed Drive 400 to work.

If you follow the program exactly and you aren’t already swinging 135+ MPH, you can expect to gain approximately 5+ MPH in 30 min using “Swing-Prep” (explain later), 10+ MPH in 8 weeks, 15+ MPH In 12 weeks. I kid you not.

 

Who’s It For?
Drive 400 is for anyone of any age and any skill level looking to add club-head speed and distance to their game. Man, woman, young, old, black, white, brown, green. As long as you can generally move around without pain, expect to see really very impressive results with Drive 400!


How Much Does It Cost?
I had two objectives starting out: Deliver a program that really does work and make it affordable to hopefully everyone. I’m happy to say that I believe I’ve accomplished both of these objectives. Drive 400 is $19.95. It’s a one time purchase. There are no hidden fees or crap like that, no memberships, nothing. It’s a one and done program. The checkout takes literally 3 min and everything is processed with Shopify. As soon as you purchase the program, it’ll be waiting in your inbox and you’ll get instant access to the Drive 400 Program Manuals and 4K training videos, for life. I opted to keep it a digital only program, so there’s no mail, no physical books and no wait time. There’s as much quality content included in Drive 400 as programs I’ve seen and used costing literally ten times that price. Drive 400 is a $200 value for only $19.95.


How Much Time Does It Take?
I designed Drive 400 with flexibility in mind. I realize everyone’s needs, schedule and desires are different and that’s why you can tailor Drive 400 to fit yours. For those of you who want to lift weights, there’s a program for you and your strength and experience level. You can choose a 3 or 4 day/week option and you can even customize which days. Each workout takes approximately 45 min. However, if you hate lifting weights or don’t have the time, the good news is that you don’t have to! Obviously, the more you put in the more you’ll get out but If you choose to only follow the swing-speed portion of Drive 400, you’re still going to see huge gains in club-head speed. The choice is yours. The Swing-Speed Drills take about 30 min, 3 days of your choice, per week and can be performed anywhere with adequate space, be it at home or on the range.


Will It Screw Up My Swing?
Absolutely not. Quite the opposite in fact. By strengthening your body and improving your athletic ability, coordination and proprioception, expect your swing and ball striking to actually improve.


Is It Safe?
Yes. In fact, with Swing-Prep (more info below) in combination with the Strength Training Program, I’m willing to bet your back or shoulder pain dissipates, if not totally goes away. A lot of people think back and shoulder pain are incurable and that strength training is the devil. This actually couldn’t be further from the truth. A lot of time, back and shoulder pain are the result of weakness and instability. Both of these issues are addressed in Drive 400. I used to have pretty significant back pain and since using “Swing-Prep” and actually strengthening my back, the pain has almost completely disappeared.

WHAT YOU GET:


Drive 400 Swing-Speed Program
You get a complete swing-speed training program with an online library full of several unique swing-speed drills. Everything is recorded in Ultra HD 4K video for crystal clear resolution. You can access the library, anytime, anywhere, forever. The swing-speed drills have been designed to increase your range of motion via the stretch-shortening cycle (SSC), improve force absorption and stability, improve rate of force development (RFD) and reactive ability and improve your natural sequencing overall athletic ability.


Drive 400 Strength & Power Training Program
You get a Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced total body strength and power training program. You choose the appropriate program based on your experience and current fitness level. Each program is designed to get you stronger, fast. The strength training program will also help get rid of any nagging back and shoulder injuries. Just like the swing-speed drills, you get access to an entire online library full of strength training exercises. Everything is recorded in Ultra HD 4K video for crystal clear resolution. You can access the library, anytime, anywhere, forever. 


Nutrition & Sleep Guide
You can do all the work in the world but if you’re not paying attention to your nutrition and sleep, you’re never going to get back what you should. Nutrition and sleep matter… a lot. This general guide will help your improve your nutrition intake and better you sleep habits with some very easy to follow tips and methods.  


The Mental Side of Swinging Fast
The body will never do what the mind won’t let it. Without the proper mental concept or intent, it’s physically impossible to generate maximum club-head speed. A simple adjustment to how you conceptualize swinging a club has the power to completely change your outcome, instantly. There are a ton of golfers that have hidden club-head speed sitting dormant inside their body, they just don’t have the right mental concept to unleash it. 

This is exactly what Drive 400 will help you with and one of the reasons I went from swinging 112 mph to 147 mph in 12 weeks and why it’s absolutely possible to gain 5 mph/15 yards in 30 minutes, 10 mph/30 yards in 8 weeks and 15 mph/45 yards in 12 weeks. Best of all, the majority of this concept simply involves shutting off the mind.

One of the most overlooked secrets to being an explosive athlete is simply, not thinking. Athletes think way too much today. Sport-Science is fun and interesting and and it does have its place but it’s sure as hell not during an explosive movement. Engaging the mind or “conscious thought”, is one of the biggest killers of explosive output that nobody talks about. High velocity swinging does not consist of forcing robotic like movements and consciously getting into positions. Not in golf, not in any sport. It’s simply impossible to maximize club-head speed when you have 5 different mechanical thoughts going through your head. The human body moves its fastest when it subconsciously reacts to a situation. Conscious thought or thinking inhibits speed of movement and instinctual, explosive athleticism. 

Drive 400 trains you to shut off your mind and swing instinctively and reactively,  so your body can work as naturally, free and explosively as possible. I use this exact type of training with my baseball players and the results are stunning. Golf is no different. Be an athlete, not a robot.


Swing-Prep
Swing Prep is the ultimate warmup tool to prepare your body to lift weights or swing a club as fast as possible.
It’s a total body dynamic warmup routine comprised of soft tissue, mobility and muscle activation work. It will prepare you for the swing-speed drills, the strength training program or just playing a round of golf. It takes about 15 min and will make you feel like a million bucks. It will increase your range of motion, improve your swing-speed instantly and reduce your risk of injury. Several clients have gained 5+ mph/15+ yards in 30 min using Swing-Prep.


Explosive Med-Ball Program
Drive 400 comes with an integrated med-ball training program that focuses on developing pure explosive power. 
Not only are you going to get stronger, you’re going to get faster. A lot faster.


Grip Strengthening Program
Grip strength is very important for all sports and Golf is no exception. A stronger grip will increase your ability to unhinge the club much faster. Drive 400 comes with an integrated Grip Strengthening Program that will increase your power and speed through impact.


Self Assessments
You’re provided three different self-assessment tests to insure you have adequate and healthy range of motion. Or in other words, to ensure you’re moving properly and safely. These tests can also help identify the cause of back problems and combined with Swing-Prep, can alleviate your pain in a fairly short period of time.


Swing and Ball Speed Optimization Guide
From optimizing your stance, grip, ball position, angle of attack, shaft length, weight, footwear, etc, I give you my tips to optimize both swing-speed and ball speed. Best of all you can apply all of this instantly as it requires no training.


Free Lifetime Updates
Anytime I come out with an update to the program, it will be emailed to you for free.


Any Device, Anywhere, Any Time. Mac or PC
Drive 400 is accessible on any device, anywhere, anytime, Mac or PC. The 4K videos are hosted on Vimeo. The Programs themselves are PDFs. Everything is integrated, very simple and well laid out. The program totally guides you. There is no guesswork involved. 


Unlimited Online Support
I try to make a point to be readily available to all my clients so If you have any questions or concerns, by all means, feel totally free to contact me - www.puredistancegolf.com/contact and I’ll get back to you ASAP. 
I’m here to help.


60 Day Money Back No Risk Guarantee
Put Drive 400 to the test! If after following the program for 60 days, you’re not happy with the 
results you’ve made, I’ll give you your $19.95 back. It’s a no risk, no brainer purchase. Get started today and see for 
yourself!


Thanks!
If you’ve gotten this far, thanks for your time, I really do appreciate it.

I don't want to sound like a repeating salesman but seriously guys, if you want to maximize your club-head speed and improve your distance significantly, with every club in the bag, I can say with absolute certainty there is nothing like Drive 400 in Golf today. I’m very excited about and proud of it and I know you’re going to really enjoy it and benefit from it!

Enjoy 5+ mph/15 yards in 30 min. 10+ mph/30 yards in 8 weeks and 15+ mph/45 yards in 12 weeks.

All the best!

Sounds good, I've tried to increase my swing speed in the last few years and all I got was a sore back (bad back - car accident)  and more missed fairways and greens.

My ss when my body isn't hurting is approx 100, have been up to 107 when its warm (Arizona) and I'm healthy. I started this game when the top players said to swing at 75-80% of your max and it's hard to break a habit that I've had for 30 years.

If you have those fast twitch fibers then this might be great for you but at my age I have to be realistic.

Also, if you're swinging at 147 I'm assuming you enter the long drive competitions.

Hey Rob, I am definitely in the mood to increase SS.  Joined a gym, started stretching pretty rigorously, etc. I am pretty stiff and tight, to be honest so I am seeing progress.  

I'm a 65.  In -better than average/ok but not great shape, and I am noticing I am much more prone to injury these days.  Back, shoulder, etc.  It's easy to pull something. So I am pretty cautious about trying stuff just from video from concern about doing it incorrectly and increasing chance of tweaking something.  

But I am interested. What do you think about the fit of your program and the profile I just set forth? 

Thx, and best wishes for success,

Chuck

Also, if you're swinging at 147 I'm assuming you enter the long drive competitions.

I hear you loud and clear on the pre-programmed swing-speed stuff. I dealt with this a lot in baseball and more specifically, pitching. I was always told "nice and easy", and was heavily involved with mechanics and thinking, etc and it completely hindered my throwing velocity. It's amazing how powerful the mind is in athletic movement. If you don't have the mental "intent" to absolutely swing the club as fast as possible, it's not going to happen, physically.

In your situation, when you've been constantly told to swing at 75-80% your entire golfing career, this almost becomes your 100% because you've never challenged yourself, so that last 20-25% is totally untapped. It's in you but you can't access it. That's why I've included several unique swing-drills in Drive 400 that aren't focused on "perfect" technique but rather, they're focused on improving range of motion, improving athletic ability and shutting off the mind. If you want to maximize your club-head speed and distance, your mind needs to get the hell out of the way. We move our fastest when we subconsciously react, not when we think about positions and whatnot and this is exactly what Drive 400 will help you with.

Hi Chuck, thanks for the question. 

That's great you've continued to workout and try to stay fit. Most people throw in the towel at 35 and then wonder why they can't perform like they did at 20.

I hear you on some of the swing drills in the video looking a little intimidating. However, they shouldn't be a problem at all if you follow the "Swing-Prep"warmup program. It takes about 15 min but it's worth it's weight in gold. Honestly, I'm really happy with how the entire program turned out but I think "Swing-Prep" is where it really shines.

In my opinion, Golfers don't warmup well at all. It's actually really eye opening to me because I spent so many years as a baseball pitcher and pitchers spend half their time going through very detailed warmup and cool down protocols to keep their arms in tiptop shape. Golfers on the other hand, might grab a club and put it behind there shoulders and do a couple trunk rotations. It's ridiculous. And then they wonder why they never improve their distance and why their back hurts. 

I don't want to sound like a salesman, but honestly, there are so many golfers that could be swinging faster and driving the ball further if they followed a proper warmup routine, but the concept is totally foreign to them. I'm really hoping this program gains some traction because I know the "Swing-Prep" portion of the program alone could be a breakthrough for many golfers. 

It focuses on neural recruitment - enabling your muscles to fire at their maximum rate of speed. It focuses on improving your range of motion through mobility work, and the soft tissue work will dramatically increase your flexibility, break up old scar tissue and keep your feeling much more limber and supple.  I can absolutely guarantee you will feel better than ever not only playing golf, but just in general. 

So ya, as long as you make sure to put in 10-15 min for the Swing-Prep, I don't think the swing-drills will be a problem for you at all. Give it a shot and if you have any concerns, email me and I'll even tweak the program slightly if need be so it works as well as possible for you. No charge.

Let me know if you have any other questions. 

Rob.

Anyone else doing Rob's program? It's comprehensive, and takes some time, but I am definitely seeing impact.  Of course, I was pretty stiff, so I should see impact from doing this pretty rigorously, but I am excited by the results already and can't wait to see where it takes me in 6 months.  I am certain that it will improve my golf game as well as my overall conditioning.

Please email me at [email protected] and I'll get it to you right away. 

If you tried downloading it on your phone, in typical Apple fashion, they sometimes block zip files. I'm also in the process of changing my email and Google takes 48 hours to propagate email changes. 

I apologize for the inconvience.

I'm now 2 months into Rob's program.  Not sure what the whole cause is - perhaps a combination of things - but I am definitely hitting the ball better - longer and more consistently.  I am stronger, have better balance and more range of motion as a result of the program.  It takes time to do the workout - dynamic stretches, speed swinging, and strength.  But the results are clear to me. I am eager to see what 6 months or 1 year later is like!

PS: Shot a career round this week.  75 (+3).  It was all ball striking.

I had some health problems last quarter of 2017, but am fully healthy again and back in the gym with Robs program (and back at the beginning because I it really is a use it or lose it deal as you age)... I love the program. It’s hard work and takes time but makes me feel great and def impacts speed and game.

Glad you're feeling healthy again, Chuck. Keep us posted on how you progress this season. With your work ethic,  you certainly deserve great success.

I didn't work out much last year and it's amazing how fast I lost strength and just didn't feel good, mentally. I started working out again 6 weeks ago and it's actually pretty shocking how much better I feel MENTALLY, never mind physically. Confidence climbs and I feel as if I'm slowing the aging process... getting better at something as you get older... instead of just getting older and s**ttier.

My goal now is to perform better at 38 than 25, just simply because I'm hellbent on outworking my former self, that relied much more on natural ability. Now it's all about strength strategy, eating better and applying it all to golf and my golf game.
