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...

    • Darts does have the advantage of being played in many venues where you can get a pint at any time during the game, as opposed to golf, where you only get the reward when you're done.  Unless you're in the US, of course, where many courses have a roving bar-cart to help you enjoy your round.
    • Furyk getting tight under Ryder Cup pressure could well be true or at least partly true. That critique seems partly true of the U.S. squad in general, doesn't it? Bubba's record is comparably poor at 3-8-0. Considering his dominance and winning percentage in stroke play and beat the field average, Tiger's Ryder Cup record isn't too stellar either. I'm just saying that Furyk (& Tiger too) may not have been used as smartly by the Captains as say, Luke Donald given his relative strengths and weaknesses. Donald tended to be sat for fourball where Furyk played both formats about the same amount, and maybe not with the right complementary partners for the foursomes. When Donald's relative approach game and putting (& birdie/bogie ratio) ranking slipped in 2014 he wasn't picked for the Euro team, because it seems his relative potential contribution (producing birdies) in alternate shot / foursomes had diminished.   Furyk Donald   SG-Tee SG-Putt SG-Appr SG-ARG Bird/Bog Bird+ % Bog Avd SG-Tee SG-Putt SG-Appr SG-ARG Bird/Bog Bird+ % Bog Avd 2016 -0.294 0.195 0.458 0.285 121 165 69 -0.583 0.060 0.645 0.449 82 181 16 2015 0.064 -0.024 1.081 0.513 15 83 8 -0.793 0.289 0.573 0.514 121 171 46 2014 0.121 0.091 1.175 0.408 5 97 1 -0.493 0.517 0.315 0.351 93 108 93 2013 0.023 0.092 0.950 0.323 25 78 14 -0.459 0.528 0.583 0.628 45 42 58 2012 0.225 0.423 0.830 0.275 9 145 1 -0.188 0.818 0.582 0.430 13 66 7 2011 -0.017 -0.160 0.643 0.190 77 147 32 0.040 0.870 1.094 0.273 1 4 1 2010 0.150 0.402 0.641 0.367 21 76 21 -0.506 0.870 0.661 0.464 16 109 9 AVG 0.039 0.146 0.825 0.337 39 113 21 -0.426 0.565 0.636 0.444 53 97 33 10-'13 0.095 0.189 0.766 0.289 33 112 17 -0.278 0.772 0.730 0.449 19 55 19 Furyk's record is horrible in the better ball / fourball format. I think that may be due to his relative lack of distance where it's harder for him to contribute much and bogey avoidance (his strength) is less important than making birdies. I expect Furyk's often been set up in a fourball pairing like Kuchar and Watson in '14 where the relatively short, but good putter / short game guy (Kuchar) was expected to complement the long hitter (Watson). Watson and Kuchar made many birdies, but still got smoked by two superior ball-strikers with average putting due to the better ball / fourball format. Rose's excellent short game helped that team in the alternate shot/foursomes format where their ball-striking was maybe less of an overt advantage than in better ball.
    • Yeah. Their products have been really solid. The 5C was iffy, but then again, the price was dirt cheap (relatively speaking). I may or may not be working for a company that supplies parts for them now, so I hope they get more popular.
    • It's all part of the deal. Especially when you are golfers like us (note my HI). Look at it this way. A couple of weeks ago I traveled three hours to our TST outing in Norwalk, OH and proceeded to barf on my shoes for 18 holes solid. Had one of my best rounds last week. It happens. Get away from it for a bit, get over it and when you come back you'll do better.
    • This sounds really really dull.  The kind of dull I'd really like to get used to seeing n my own game.
