Tempo drill Mini Lesson

Golfers sometimes struggle to be consistent from one club to another (especially irons to woods) because their tempo varies from club to club.  If your tempo varies from club to club, it makes it very difficult to have the proper timing to hit consistent golf shots.  To work on your tempo, try the drill below.

Get in your athletic set up position.  Without a ball, do continuous swings for 15 seconds.  To help with your tempo, try counting (1.................2).  Do this drill with woods, long irons and short irons.  Hopefully, your tempo will remain the same for each club.
