Many golf tips related to swing tempo center around the comparison between the backswing and the downswing. Studies have shown that a backswing approximately 3 times longer than a downswing creates the ultimate combination of acceleration and timing. It’s easy to tell when your tempo is off, too. If you find yourself taking your golf club back too fast, you may be trying to generate power too early in the golf swing. Good tempo doesn’t mean you have to swing slow, just smooth. So, practice a smooth takeaway and focus on accelerating your power on the downswing. Additional tips include releasing some of the tension in your grip and thinking “tick-tock” while you’re swinging.
