    Building a Quick Swing technique with Beautiful Tempo




    In this section, we are going to assume that you use a quick swing technique. When built correctly, a quick swing can work nicely on the course, allowing you to produce powerful shots time after time. There have been plenty of great players in the pro ranks who used quick swings, so there is no reason you can’t perform well with a quick tempo of your own.

    With that said, it’s important to keep a few key points in mind while working on your swing. If you’re going to go ahead with your quick swing, think about the tips below during your next practice session.

  • Smooth transitions. While you are going to be using a quick swing, it is important to make smooth transitions that allow you to keep everything connected properly. That means you need to be smooth at the start of the swing, and also at the top when transitioning from backswing to downswing. During the takeaway, let your swing get started relatively slowly before you pick up the pace. Even keeping the first few inches of your takeaway smooth will go a long way toward keeping your swing connected. If you were to rip the club away from address quickly, the club would get too far ahead of the rest of your body, and it would be hard to strike the ball cleanly in the end. The same can be said for the transition at the top of your swing. If you rush through that move, you might force the club down early and cause an outside-in swing path as a result. No matter what kind of swing pace you are using, pay attention to the transitions in order to achieve solid strikes.
  • Take your time before the swing begins. There is nothing wrong with making a quick swing, but you still need to take time before you hit your shots to prepare properly. If you get too carried away with the idea of playing quick, you might not be able to think through each shot clearly. It is essential to make good decisions on the links, but your decisions might be a little questionable if you are in a rush. Some of the things you need to sort out in advance include finding an accurate yardage, picking a target, selecting a club, and more. All golfers need to collect information and make a plan before hitting any shot, so don’t rush through this process just because you happen to use a quick swing tempo.
  • Stay down through impact. One potential complication of a quick swing is the temptation to look up early as the club head speeds through impact and through to the finish. As you already know, it is important to stay down through the shot, with your eyes on the ball and your head maintaining a stable position. There is no reason you can’t manage to keep your head down with a quick swing, but it is important to monitor this point to make sure you don’t fall into any bad habits.
  • In all, building a swing with a quick tempo isn’t all that different than putting together a swing with any other kind of tempo. You will need to practice consistently, pay attention to the details, and focus on your fundamentals when you are out on the course. As you gain experience and continue to practice, your quick tempo should get more and more effective.
