If you want to find The Zone, that elusive state of mind and body convergence where you are one with the golf ball and can do no wrong, then you need to develop a tempo in your swing. With the right tempo, your muscles will work in unison to produce a smooth, powerful motion. Choose the wrong tempo, however, and your muscles will fight each other, causing your swing to fall out of synch, which causes hit-or-miss erratic results.

Everybody's swing is different, so how do you find the right groove for your swing? Practice and experimentation is the only answer. You have to search for the true essence of your own swing, grasshopper-san. Fortunately, a variety of golf training aids exist for training tempo, from small metronomes that you can clip to your shirt collar, to magnetic balls that click as you swing. Here are some tips for using these training aids to groove your tempo:

1. Check out various pros' swings on TV to get a few tempos you'd like to try out. For example, 2005 US Open champion Michael Campbell has a fast tempo, while Ernie Els has a slower, gliding tempo. Vijay Singh has a medium tempo that's right in between. Once you have a few tempos to try out, then make sure that whatever training aid you buy is variable so you can try them out. If the training aid is locked to a single tempo, don't buy it. There is no 'one size fits all' for this.

2. Use your swing metronome or other training aid to try out different tempos until you find one that's right for you. This could take several practice sessions. How will you know when it's right? It will feel smooth and good and you will hit better, more consistent shots.

3. Practice your tempo as much as possible. Try to groove the tempo for five minutes before each round, and practice the tempo for a few swings before each shot. Practice it until you feel it in your bones. This should give you a good, repeatable base tempo to use as an anchor for your swing. Then, if you face adversity or a pressure situation during your round, you will always have a solid base tempo that you can go back to. This will allow you to relax more easily and focus on the shot at hand.

Good luck and feel the rhythm!

 

How To Use Golf Training Aids To Increase Your Swing Speed And Hit Like The Pros

Whack! The feeling of a great drive, the sweet feel as the ball jumps off the clubface and rockets down the middle of the fairway-- it's one of the best parts about playing golf, and one of the reasons that we keep coming back for more punishment.

Whack! The feeling of a great drive, the sweet feel as the ball jumps off the clubface and rockets down the middle of the fairway-- it's one of the best parts about playing golf, and one of the reasons that we keep coming back for more punishment. If only it would happen more often! Ah, to see the green envy in your opponents' eyes when your ball blasts by theirs.

Unfortunately, the average male golfer's swing speed is around 85 mph. With a USGA conforming driver, this equates to drives of about 225 yards, an embarrassing 83 yards shorter than Tiger Woods' average drive, and even 35 yards shorter than Cory Pavin, who is the shortest driver on the PGA Tour. So most of us go to the course with an inferiority complex already deeply ingrained from watching Tour broadcasts which constantly and blatantly rub our faces in the fact that the pros outdrive us by a country mile. No wonder most amateurs can't relax over the ball and tend to over swing. How could the average guy hope to hit the ball that far?

Well, the good news is -- it's possible for you to hit long drives! To hit like the pros, all you have to do is swing as fast as they do, while at the same time maintaining your balance. If it sounds like it is easier said than done, just think about this: As mentioned before, Corey Pavin, the shortest hitter on the PGA Tour, averages just under 270 yards per drive. He is 5' 9" tall and weighs 155 pounds. Now, the average male is 5' 9" tall and weighs 190 pounds. If Corey Pavin can average 270, then you can hit it just as long or longer!

Let's set a goal of out driving Corey Pavin, so we can tell ourselves honestly that we can drive the ball as far as someone on the Tour. To figure out how to do this, let's start with the average swing speed of 85 mph and average distance of 225 yards. Now, physics tells us that we get approximately 3 extra yards per additional mile per hour of swing speed. So, if we want to go from 225 to 270 to beat Corey Pavin, that means we need 45 extra yards, which equates to adding 15 mph to the swing speed.

How can you use golf training aids to add that extra 15 mph? Since low swing speed is usually the result of a combination of factors including; untrained muscles, poor technique, and lack of physical fitness, a multi-pronged approach is required to get to the goal fast! To accelerate your progress, you can use golf training aids to train and strengthen your golf-specific muscles, to correct poor technique, and to improve your overall fitness. A variety of training aids exist to help with this. Here's a 3-step plan for increasing your swing speed as fast as possible:

1. Make sure that your grip, swing path, and swing plane are correct. It will do no good to increase your swing speed if technical flaws in your swing prevent you from hitting the ball straight. I suggest using a single training aid for both grip and swing plane (many exist with this combination) and another training aid for swing path. For example, a hinged club with a molded grip is perfect for grip and swing path, while a foam obstacle training aid will work well for keeping your swing path on track. Practice with these training aids for at least 2 weeks before moving on to step 2.

2. Get some type of weighted club. Weighted clubs are perfect for training the golf specific muscles to have the strength and explosive power that you need to produce higher swing speeds. In addition, training with a weighted club can increase your core stability and balance if done properly. Be very careful not to over swing with a weighted club since you can injure yourself! Stretch out and warm up thoroughly before you even start swinging the heavy club. I suggest using this training aid at least 3 days a week, but not more than 5. It's important to let your muscles rest a bit each week.

3. Get a golf fitness book to augment your regular training program. Overall physical fitness is just as critical to your golf game as golf-specific training. Work out 3 times a week and don't forget your cardio to reduce fatigue at the end of your round!

If you take these three steps I think you will see a great improvement in your driving distance within 2 months, if not sooner. Good luck and I hope to see you on the par fives in two!

 

How To Use Golf Training Aids To Train Your Brain

You're having a good round through 14 holes. The kind of round that could turn into a personal best if you can just avoid any big numbers on the way in. Strolling with some trepidation up to the 15th tee, you set down your clubs and look down the fairway. It's your nemesis hole, a par 4 with a lake on the right off the tee and some vicious sand trouble to the left.

It seems like you never escape this hole without some damage. The last time you played it you put two in the ...

You're having a good round through 14 holes. The kind of round that could turn into a personal best if you can just avoid any big numbers on the way in. Strolling with some trepidation up to the 15th tee, you set down your clubs and look down the fairway. It's your nemesis hole, a par 4 with a lake on the right off the tee and some vicious sand trouble to the left.

It seems like you never escape this hole without some damage. The last time you played it you put two in the water and made a snowman -- NOT good. If somehow you can just sneak past this hole unscathed one time, you think you can finish strong.

As you tee it up and go through your pre-shot routine, a lot of nasty thoughts creep in and set up camp. The first and most obvious is “DON'T hit it in the water again.” This is followed by a bunch of reactive thoughts like, “Don't think about the water or the ball will go there” and “Don't hit a slice, but don't pull it into the sand.”

You've been hitting it pretty straight all day, so you've chosen a target on the left side of the fairway. But in the middle of your swing you remember that you did the same thing last time and still sliced it in the lake. You over-compensate and spaz to the left, yanking the ball left into a gaping bunker.

You then proceed to make a mess of the hole, coming away with a double bogey. Your mindset ruined, you chop away at the remaining 3 holes and end up with an average round instead of tidy personal best you were gunning for.

If this type of thing happens to you more than you'd like to admit, and you're really sick of it, consider adding some mental training to your practice routine. Mental training can relax the mind and free you up from anxiety, allowing you to get out of your own way on the road to lower scores. The mind is the most important tool in the golf arsenal, so it's surprising that most golfers spend so little time training it.

Most golfers I know would rather spend $400 on new driver than buy a golf training book or video for $30 and actually take the time to read/watch it. So adding some mental preparation to your game can really give you an edge over the competition as well.

But how do you do it? How do you train your mind to have the crystal clarity and laser focus that you need to play your best golf? The answer is simple: golf training aids (i.e. books, videos, etc). Yep, books and videos are golf training aids for the brain.

Just as hitting long, straight drives requires lots of training for the body, performing your best under pressure requires practice for the mind. Here are some tips for finding the brain training aids that will help you maximize your results:

1. Get a variety. No single book/DVD, etc. has a monopoly on all the good knowledge about the mental aspects of golf. Find training aids on general golf psychology, course management, putting, practicing, and meditation. Make sure that everything you buy has a section on strategies for dealing with pressure and stress, because that's the name of the game when it comes to competitive golf.

2. Make sure that the training aids you buy have specific exercises to help you get better. You can't master these techniques without practice. It is also helpful if any practice range exercises are condensed into short lists so you can easily copy them and bring them to the course -- it's hard to remember a lot of exercises without referring to the book and this can be cumbersome.

3. Practice visualization at the range before EVERY shot. Imagine a specific situation on the course, visualize the shot you need to hit, and then go into your pre-shot routine. If you do this consistently then you will start to do it automatically on the course.

4. Drills that involve some type of manufactured pressure can be really helpful for improving your game. For example, after your round, go to the practice range and make five 5-foot putts in a row before you go home. Once you have mastered this, then move the goal up to ten 5 footers in a row. Nothing makes you concentrate more than knowing you have to make this putt or start over, especially when you've just made nine in a row for the third time and you're getting hungry.

Good luck and commit to every shot!
