IMPROVE YOUR TEMPO

Better Golf with the Golf Doctor
By Mike Calbot
Golf swing analyst and master golf instructor

Golf Tip – Tempo Drills

When golfers have days where they feel like they have lost their swing did they actually loose their swing? Usually is the tempo that changes, causing the loss of timing and swing techniques. Golfers have some days where they are swinging with 70 to 75% effort and getting 100% result where the ball is going the proper personal distances and the quality of the shot solid with the proper flight and spin. This is the day you wish to have every day, or in competition.

Well golfer’s good news, you can learn to improve your tempo with several drills. The first are called line drills, this is where you set up a line of golf balls say six to ten balls in a row (usually on a tee) running perpendicular to your target. Next take a seven or six iron and hit the balls with half speed and effort. Try to hit these balls with very little time in between each swing not giving you too much time to think but to feel the tempo needed to make the shot. You will soon develop a rhythm and you will start to be able to swing faster and slower and still hit the ball solid and under control. This may take around 75 to 100 balls but you will really get your grove going. The next drill is to once again set up another line of balls and hit the balls with your feet only three to four inches apart and you must say to yourself, turn and return! This drill will force you to keep your balance. The next is to set up a row of balls and try hitting some balls one handed first your left then your right. One key is to keep a light grip pressure with all drills. I guarantee if you do the drills or just the ones you can fit in they will improve your tempo.

BALL POSITIONS

Golf Tip – Ball Positions

Would like to be better? In some cases this can be achieved by a simple adjustment of the ball position. Many average golfers do not pay attention to their ball positions in there stances as they change clubs. The ball flight is directly impacted by the placements of the ball within the stance. Let us begin by stating that the foot closest to the target will be called the front foot and the other the back foot, this is to accommodate both the right and left handed golfer.

The driver should be played on the heel of the front foot. The fairway woods and some rescue clubs should be played about four inches inside the front foot and irons five through the wedges in the center of the stance. The position of the ball will allow the proper angle of attack to the ball and the end result, the proper impact.

The explanation would be that the irons five through wedge are to be struck on the down swing to allow the ball to spin up the face and create enough spin through the flight to hold its path and flight trajectory until reaching its target and upon landing stops quickly.

Golfers watch professional golfers on TV and see the ball spinning back with lofted clubs, the average golfer watches their ball hit the green and never stop and usually roll off the green leading to more strokes taken. The fairway woods and some rescue clubs need a little shallower attach this is why the ball is slightly forward of center. The driver,
Should be played close to the heel of the front foot and teed in a manner to impact the ball off the tee without scraping the ground. This will give you more carry and distance.

Try these three ball positions and make better ball contact and better control.

Enjoy,

Mike Calbot
