The Full Swing - The Importance of Tempo

So what's a good swing tempo? The answer is it's different for every golfer. But, when your tempo is good you know it because you're in a groove. You're hitting every club well and you're consistent. It doesn't matter which club you're hitting when your tempo is on your hitting solid shots consistently. Good tempo is the number one thing you can do to maintain a solid golf game. If you feel that your tempo is off here's a way to get it working.

The next time you're on the range place a ball on the tee. Pull out your driver and take your normal grip. Now holding the club with your normal grip walk away from the ball using your normal pace and stride. Walk about 10 steps away from the ball and then turn around and using the same pace walk back to the ball. Once you're back at your ball immediately address the ball, make one waggle and swing. It's important that you use your normal pace and stride when performing this drill because this is the best indicator of your natural tempo. If you normally walk with a slow pace you don't want to perform this drill using a fast pace. Use your natural rhythm. Once you discover what your natural rhythm is try to use the same tempo when hitting the ball. Any time you feel your tempo is off perform the above drill and you can easily get it back.
