POOR TEMPO

leave a comment »


PROBLEM: Improper speed and 
timing of golf swing produces 
errant shots.

During the golf swing, all those moving parts 
must proceed with the proper speed and 
sequence to produce good results.  This is 
called tempo.

Poor tempo results mostly from swinging too 
fast, either out of anxiety or the desire to hit 
the ball as far as possible.

To correct tempo problems, try to swing the 
club using the large leg and body muscles 
rather than your arms and hands.

Hit with 80% of your power, using the same 
effort you would use with a seven-iron.

Don’t rush the downswing.  

Take a full coil, start the downswing with your 
legs and hips and let you arms drop into the 
hitting position before turning on the power.
