The Powerful Duo Of Balance And Rhythm Can Change Your Golf Game (Video)

I think as most golfers do, I kind of like to watch the golf in the TV from time to time and just see what’s going on in the world of the game and see who's playing the best golf. And the one thing that always strikes me from watching the golfers is the balance and the rhythm that they have makes them stand out from maybe the amateurs that I teach on a more regular basis. And even sometimes when you play the pro-celebrity games, we have one over in Europe, the Dunhill where they play off at St. Andrews and in America. I think it’s the – hey play at Pebble Beach some time. It’s like an AT&T thing. I think it’s a celebrity partner and the professional golfer. And even if I don’t recognize the celebrity and the professional, I can always tell who's who as soon as they make their first swings off the first tee. And generally, the giveaway is the rhythm and the balance. Not strictly the power or the positions they get into in the swing, but the rhythm and the balance the professional golfers you generally mostly pair it.

And even some of those who got a classically kind of quirky looking swing like Jim Furyk where he swings a bit all over the place and he’s not something we generally try and copy, you can still tell he’s a very, very good golfer because of the rhythm he has and the balance he has. And it’s not just good rhythm, good balance, it’s consistent shot to shot, round to round, day to day, first hole, last hole, under pressure leading the tournament or not going to make the cut in the tournament. The balance and the rhythm just never seems to change. And that’s a really good thing that I think a club golfer, an amateur golfer can learn from is it the way the professionals take their business around the golf course is that they’re super consistent. Yes, the positions they make in the golf swings are very consistent but also the rhythm and the balance they have is consistent. And if you’re consistent with balance rhythm, then you should be a lot more consistent in terms of where that golf ball goes. Now whether that golf ball is going dead straight to the flag or not is by the by, if it’s doing the same thing every single time because your balance and your rhythm is the same, it’s a lot easier to then work on that fault, even if your fault is the fact that you sliced the golf ball. If 10 out of 10 slice, you can do something about it. If five slice and five hook, that’s a whole another ball game to try and correct that and that might be because your rhythm changes on the first tee or slow on the last tee or quick, your balance might change. One shot, you hold your balance perfectly to a finish, the next shot you’re leaning back on your back foot. You can’t possibly have bad balance and inconsistent balance, bad rhythm and inconsistent rhythm and be a consistent golfer. So watch the professionals on the TV, learn the balance, learn the rhythm, learn the consistency and you’ll start playing better golf.
