In this tip I am talking about how you can get the perfect tempo. Next time you go to the golf course, just look at the driving range and see if you notice anybody there with a great tempo. I bet you don’t see many amateurs with that slow silky tempo that everyone is striving for. They always look fast. Why? Well, most amateurs are using their arms in the golf swing and this makes the swing look fast. If you look fast then yes, you are using your arms. You want to get that slow tempo like most tour pros have and then in turn you will start to slow down and start to use your body to hit the golf ball. Check it out the next time you are at the golf course.
How to Get Consistent Swing Tempo

Once again you come up with an answer to a problem I am struggling with. I know when I am hitting badly it is because backswing too fast, but in the moment can’t solve it. I can honestly say I play my best after watching a video that relates to an in the moment problem. Thank you again.

Just do a 2 count going back and 1 count down. 1 … 2 … 3. If you do a 2 count going back and say it to yourself how can you do a fast backswing.

Paul, coming off an injury. Haven’t played much. But did play yesterday, shot a 101, 50-51. I kept hitting it left. It would start left of target and then hook even more left. It wasn’t an accident I kept doing it. It was a powerful shot and did equal my playing partners, but it was in the lake trees and rough. It was in play a little more than half the time.
I feel I sometimes sway to the left and don’t get my left leg locked and turn, I also am really quick and told I have “happy feet”. And I am not super flexible at 55.
I know this is alot to fix, but please at least start me with something to work on, and I try to master them 1 at a time. S

Glad you are back to playing. You need to watch this tip:
See The Good In A Pull and Pull Hook: https://ignitiongolf.com/see-good-pull-pull-hook/
For the feet issue it does take work. You need to know exactly what you are supposed to be doing then do slow practice swings at home so you can feel what you are doing and do it right. Too fast and you may not know what you are doing.
Here you go:
At setup make sure the forward foot is turned out about 25 degrees out but the knees are straight. If this foot is straight you will jump and twist. So it all starts there.

That should keep you going for a while.

I have watched this a number of times and to me it seems you start coming down on 2.

Just do a 2 count going back and one count down. This will slow you down going back and get you the right tempo.
