‘Must Know’ Golf Swing Knowledge

By admin May23,2024

The quantity of golf knowledge an amateur should know is overwhelming. It seems that every time I look for topics to write about, I find more things I do not know about my golf swing. It is crazy to think that after 45+ years of playing golf I still feel like a ‘newbie’ with a club in my hands. I stumbled across a video that unpacks a great deal of information about rhythm, tempo, and speed. I knew most of this information, but seeing it all together, I realized that turning it into knowledge still requires some work.

The video talks about developing the proper tempo when hitting golf balls. This is nothing new for me, but the other information on rhythm and speed opened my eyes a bit. Take a look and see if you find anything new:

The one statement that caught my attention the most is that swinging slowly does not me we are developing the proper rhythm or tempo. Also, there is a difference between the two. To hit my point home further, lets listen to Martin Hall from Golf Digest.

Well, I have a great deal of information I need to turn into knowledge. To be fair, I did understand these concepts from previous research, but I think I will hone my knowledge a bit more to ensure I have the best golf swing for my game.

Where speed fits into all of these concepts is interesting. We can try and swing our clubs as fast as we want as long as we maintain the rhythm vs tempo concepts. The fast the club head speed, the faster the tempo. Conversely, the faster the speed, the rhythm should not change. It is an interesting dynamic that will require some more range work.

I am a grateful golfer! See you on the links!
