How to maintain and control the Balance (tempo) of golf swing – Simple Swing Intermediate

We heard so much about balance and control about golf swing –  falling back,  tilting,   not creating forward divots,  unstable finish,  slicing and hooking.   We sometimes find ourselves overloaded with tips and mechanics of golf swing.  We studied and practiced before going out to the field, and yet we forget to execute those.  We have gone through so much with these both in the fields and out of the fields.   Is there any simple answer to resolve these issues and problems?

Here are what finally came with, and hopefully we all can get the benefit from these.

In one word, we want to take a really really brief pause when we are on the top of back-swing before executing down-swing.  And we want to bring  down arms (i.e. handle) and body TOGETHER.  Again, TOGETHER.

Here are tips for you, all golfers.

1. While you are doing the back-swing, you take the club away back and coil (rotate) your body simultaneously.  These actions should be very quite, yet stable and powerful and with the proper tempo.  You don’t want your center of body (or shoulder) to fall back (i.e. tilt back).

2.  Once your club reaches to the top, it is time for you to do the down swing.  A lot of things can go wrong if you loose balance, or you are inconsistent or out of tempo.

3. Please try to take a really brief pause at the top.  This could be done either by physically brief pause or mental pause.  Now, please remember this. This will be a extremely important.  You will do both un-coiling your body(shoulder) and  down-swing of club together, in tandem.  Please do two together.  In other word, down-swing the club along with your body uncoiling.  Thus, these movements will highly promote the striking the ball with the sense of forward movement. You will not fall back or tilt back.

Please practice these movements and make a part of your golf swing, unconsciously.  You will see the differences.  You can apply these tips even to the putting, or to the quarter/half swing under the hazardous situation.

I hope you will make a great stride this year and enjoy better golf this year!!
