All About The Tempo!!

5 posts in this topic

I have been playing the game now for about 4 years. Never had a lesson but i watch a lot of the Golf Fix and the Golf Channel. Lately they have really been stressing having good tempo in your swing. I really focused on that this week and shot my best round ever in my league this week!!! I shot a 37 on par 36 and I could not have been happier. I am playing 18 in the morning and looking forward to the new tempo swing of mine!!

Absolutely. Funny you posted this. I've been playing for 2 years and had been struggling with inconsistent shots. Slowed down my backswing a bit and really focused hard on smooth tempo... Almost holding the top of my backswing for a half second or so before starting the downswing and really accelerating through the ball. Amazing results... and as luck would have it my putter was cooperating. Had my best round so far and cannot wait to play again on Sunday.

Awesome man.  With scores like that, who can complain?  Tempo is great, and is one of the most important factors in a swing.  Just make sure that you don't over-exaggerate too much.  Some folks get carried away.  They slow their swing down, get good tempo, and get good results, and then subconsciously start focusing too much on tempo, and their swing gets slower and slower,and then other problems start to crop up.  Just something to keep in mind.  Good job nonetheless!

just had this revelation myself -- you always hear it, but it's true.  similarly watching Golf Channel, the first episode of Big Break Academy helped me a ton.  someone (Stephanie??) uses a 6-count -- 3 on the backswing, impact at 4, 5-6 to finish (i also read the 3:1 backswing:impact ratio is key, so that makes sense).

i use this tempo almost like a waltz in my head now... makes this old ad even funnier with that in mind

likewise.  coupled with tempo, letting gravity work it's magic instead of forcing the club down with my arms was another tip that helped me a lot.  crushing my long irons, which is good because my woods haven't been cooperating...

    • A figment of Bill Kristol's imagination.
    • LOL, I had to read it a bunch of times too.  Still not 100% but ... I think the confusion was brought in by their effort to minimize the severity of the "issue."  They could have just said "an issue that could prevent headphone audio controls from working," but I assume that they wanted to stress that the issue is minor and they're not always not working, only temporarily.   Funny thing is once they added to the "temporarily" they could have dumped the "not" - it means basically the same thing with or without the "not."
    • Entered the last week of the regular season on Monday.  It was also Senior Night.  Typically, it is a great night for us and did end good.  However, it was a rough start.  One of my seniors was pulled over driving to our course and had 3 other players in her car.  While she was given a warning, they got to our course late and so, were rushed to get dressed and on the course.  Naturally, she was shaken up.  My #1 was again medalist but we shot the worst score we have shot on they year.  We shot a 215 and that is terrible.  We lost to both opponents we played that night and have beaten both by 20 this year.  Today was our conference tournament.  It is held at a very tough course for girls, has a lot of sand and water and trees.  My #4 who is really my #3 but I defer to an older girl at #3 could not play since she was rushed to the emergency room.  She is very sick.  Anyway, my #1 shot a 77 on a windy cold day and was Medalist.  She out shot the next competitor by 11 strokes.  Her round was one of the most amazing rounds I've seen.  Our conference is very competitive in girl's golf and yet, the #1s from all the other teams could not keep up with her.  My #2 was also All Conference.  From there, we were terrible but in line with the other girls.  Still, when you are missing the young lady that has been averaging 94 per 18 holes, you are not going to win.  We didn't.  Regional Tournament next.  It is on our home course BUT we never get to play those holes.  We have 27 Holes and so, never are allowed on the first 18 due to league play.  I am hoping we get to play those holes now in practice since league is over.  Finally, Senior Night is a celebration of our Seniors.  The other girls bought them some very nice gifts.  It was also my birthday.  They got me an extremely nice Triad Golf Jacket.  I needed it today since we were in the mid 60s with a very hard wind.  I am so blessed to get to be their coach. 
    • Wow! Hillary only got 2% on my quiz.  I knew I didnt like her, but I didnt think it was that bad.
    • I tried to find the debate, but all I could find on was some new reality show called "The Biggest Liar", where two people went after each other as hard as they could for 90 minutes.  When it was over, there was no clear winner, and the only loser was the American people.   I took the quiz, I side with Evan McMullin...........who the hell is Evan McMullin?????
