The Proper Way To Swing A Golf Club Starts With Having Good Tempo!
by: Scott Kowalski

Last weekend was great for me! I got to do what I love best,and that is playing a round of golf with my friends. Being for most of us in our foursome it was the first time playing after the winter break. Most of us weren't very good. We hit a lot of bad errant shots mixed in with some good ones. We kept score but, we were all higher than our normal scores.

What I noticed the most however, because the golf course was playing long due to standing water and some wind. That we were all overcompensating by swinging harder than normal to make up for the extra yardage, and because of it bad swing flaws was quite evident. Instead of swinging natural and with good rhythm.

Instead we were rushing our golf swings, and the timing or tempo of our golf swings were totally out of sync. The erratic tempo we were exhibiting was due to hitting solely with our arms and trying to blast every shot as hard as you possibly can.

In your golf swing, your arms move relatively fast compared to the rest of your body rotation, and the odds of being able to replicate the same exact same hitting motion consistently with your arms is next to impossible. By rotating your body at the same rate of speed to your arms and shoulders it becomes relatively easier to control, because your mindset tells your arms how fast to swing in relationship to the rotation of your body. It is much easier to make the same movement consistently every time thus giving you the correct tempo you are after.

Another thing you will notice between the pro golfers and amateurs is their golf swings always seem to look effortless. They are not making the amateur mistake of trying too hard and wanting to blast the ball. This only leads to errant golf shots and less control. In order to become successful at golf, you need to understand the proper way to swing a golf club.

Trying too hard can cause your golf swing tempo or timing to get off balance or become too rushed. This will lead to many possible problems. So make sure to spend a little bit of your extra time on the driving range getting your tempo or rhythm down and you'll get rewarded out on the golf course for it.

Obviously, you have to practice to get better. Unfortunately, the average player never practices the same way a pro would practice. The pro is not out on the practice range to hit every shot perfectly. They are there to work only on a part of their golf swing mechanics. This means they know exactly what it is they need to be working on for every possible golf shot they will face. They will take their time trying to master the one element of their golf swing they feel is the weakest part of their game.

They also know that working on a certain position in their golf swing may take them months to master. The next time you go out to the practice range have a game plan. Know exactly what you are going to be working on and take your time working on your own bad swing flaws.

Create a smooth golf tempo for consistently great golf swings. Having good tempo is a huge asset for any golfers game. All of the touring professionals have great tempo in their golf swings. Good tempo does allow you to stay balanced in your golf swing, and direct your golf club where you want it to go.

The tempo of the golf swing becomes more consistent when you allow the club head to swing naturally. In order to keep proper golf swing tempo, you want to make sure that you swing the golf club the same pace on the way back and on the way through to the finish. If you are suffering from any particular bad golf swing faults, focusing on getting your tempo down will benefit you in the most positive way.

Swinging with proper timing will make your club swing on the correct swing path and eliminate or greatly reduce your golf swing faults. When I feel my golf swing starts to get off track by my lack of timing when I'm rushing or swinging too fast. I always try and focus on getting my tempo correct and naturally my golf swing starts to improve.

Why is learning the golf swing so tough? If you find learning the proper way to swing a golf club is so tough, you're not alone. There are millions of golfers who are in the same boat. If you have been reading my golf tips you'll probably know that at one time, I also thought it was tough. I tried every golf tip in the books and videos and hit thousands and thousands of golf balls in my quest for the perfect golf swing.

For us amateurs there is no perfect golf swing that we can duplicate.There are certain things we can do to improve, and here are 5 golf tips that will help you along the way to better understanding what you need to do to improve.

1.Finding the golf swing that you've always wanted. The average golfers swing doesn't look like the pros. The reason why the average golfers swing doesn't look like a pros is because the average golfer is using their arms to hit the golf ball instead of using your body. Unfortunately, the golf swing is not as easy as just hitting it with your arms. Try working with your lower body in coordination with your upper body (arms, hips,neck and shoulder rotation).

2. Lack of Knowledge. It's amazing the conversations you will hear when working out at the practice range. They believe they have the secrets to their success. This is the talk that I find interesting because I know from my own experience what works and what doesn't. I find it interesting because I can relate to what their talking about, and it gives me some perspective from another average golfers point of view. It tells me how people perceive certain golf tips and lessons and how they try to incorporate them. Instead of trying every golf tip that someone tells you, try to stick with the one method and become an expert about that one method of properly swinging a golf club.

3. Buying New Golf Equipment. That is not your #1 problem solution. Bad swing flaws with new golf equipment will always mean bad golf swings period. The amateurs who invest heavily into their golf equipment almost have this swagger about them thinking that they have solved the secrets of their golf game. Two weeks later they aren't talking about it anymore. Unfortunately, you cannot buy your golf game. Clubs are important but if you have a golf swing that doesn't work, nothing is going to help make it improve. Putting in hard work at the practice range can only do that for you in the long run.

4. There is a group of teaching students not teachers who have no clue what their talking about, and yet they are teaching beginners how to swing a golf club. This is very frustrating because I know they're going to give their students all sorts of bad advice and habits. I realize that this person means well but, relating the golf swing to someone in a way that they can understand it is very difficult. This is the most critical starting point in time for a beginner who is serious about wanting to learn. They have no bad habits and no re-conceived notions. The beginner would be much better off learning from a qualified licensed professional. Obviously, if anyone could teach golf there would be a whole lot more pros out there on the practice ranges.

5. By investing your time and energy at the practice range. Make it become a habit of yours visiting the driving ranges at least 2 to 3 times per week. Working on your golf swing flaws until you feel comfortable enough to take the golf swing out on to the golf course with you. Invest into training aids that will help you to groove the golf swing your looking for. Practice alone doesn't mean improvement it makes permanent. Practicing with the right golf mindset will instill confidence in your own ability, and this will contribute to more success with having the correct golf swing memory that will enable you to shoot better golf scores.
