Rhythm & Tempo are two of the most important factors in making a good golf swing and getting excellent results. Any time that your tempo is “off” or “out of sync” you will not get the desired results. In tournament play, it’s crucial to maintain your rhythm & tempo from the practice area, to the first tee, and through the eighteenth green!
Two drills that I like to use for tempo are:
1. swinging and hitting shots with your feet together, it forces your lower body to slow down and your upper body to increase movement and
2. swinging two clubs at the same time or using a heavy practice club to make full easy swings (not hitting balls). Both of these drills are perfect if you’ve had a short break from the game or been unable to play because of weather.
