Golf Tips – Golf Swing Tempo

In this video I try to explain how to achieve consistent golf swing tempo. Sometimes when a player is on the golf course the first thing to leave them is their tempo. This is a critical part of playing good golf. I try to give different types of golf swing tempo tips. People with bad timing are not going to play great golf.

When playing golf, you want to be smooth and slow when hitting your shots. This is very important in that this creates the same timing each time you hit a shot. In my golf swing tempo video, i try to explain how to get this tempo and why it is important. In my own swing I am hitting shots at the same speed each time.

There are no real ways to get perfect tempo immediately. But in explaining why it is important and how you can achieve it you will then see why you need to master it. I have shown a couple of golf swing tempo drills for you to work on. I hope this helps in your game and make you play better golf.

I have been a disciple of yours for a few years now. Your teaching is by
far the best I have experienced and augment it with a visit or two to my
local Pro.
1st, A little background:
I recently, (yesterday), put the Swing Speed Radar into use at my local
practice tee. I noticed that my optimal head speed for my driver and 2 wood
is currently at 84 mph with a longest drive at 92. Having said that, 84 is
my current maintainable head speed with those clubs.
As I moved on to my pitching wedge, (currently locked in at 95 – 100 yds.
accurately), I noticed that my head speed dropped to 56 mph.
2nd, My question for you:
Is the drop in head speed with the wedge an anomaly or is this the norm?
In other words, should I be set at 56 or should I be seeking to increase
head speed almost 30 mph? I am not quite sure what the head speed is
telling me with the wedge. Would you enlighten me?

this is your man for golf instruction, no golf gobbleygook, just
straightforward advice. thanks.

Fred Ernst says:

Excellent video. Maybe it will help me. I have a good practice swing, can
hit plastic balls well, and after about 10 real balls on the driving range,
they too fly great, But as soon as I get to the first tee, make a
backswing, I freeze trying to come down. The only way I can finally hit the
ball is to take a step forward, like a baseball swing. Any ideas? Hypnosis?
I’ve had this problem for about 4 weeks, seems like it started after I
developed “golfer’s elbow”, which, after a doctor injected cortisone, is
gone. My son-in-law has often said, why do you always try to kill the ball
(he hits it a mile, hdcp 7).

played of 5 handicap for 30 years and now play off 15. Watched this video
went to the practise ground for an hour and shot 2 under for 9
holes.Awesome instruction Paul.Regards from Co. Galway. Ireland.

Bert Flowers says:

Bro I thought I was crazy but I was just practicing at the range and I
stopped to think about what I was doing wrong “all harms”.
So I slowed way down almost felt like I being dumb but consistent ball
striking occurred.
I’m really excited thank you for the video to back my thougts of what was

Justin Cox says:

to make it easy, think about pausing at the top of your backswing. you
wont be pausing but actually your hips will unwind first, hands will drop,
and arms will follow. think pause, you wont actually pause, but you will
create great tempo

Josh Hewitt says:

Does this also work for a 12 year old?

Adam Grymkowski says:

Paul, I love your teaching style a lot, another words, you’re not just a
golf instructor charging his/her fee, you are much, much more, somebody who
has a ” teaching philosophy” which most golf instructors don’t have a clue
about, unfortunately! By watching your lessens, I have improved my game
tremendously for which I thank you!!!! Adam ps. would love to visit you in
LV for a few instructions, how will I approach it? 

MacClellandMan says:

Paul, I wish you could see the lights turn on in the eyes of my junior
golfer girls when they started flying the ball on target following your
instruction. Joy overtook frustration. Thanks so much.

Matt Cody says:

Thanks for all the tips. Just beginning to play and enjoy the game. It’s
great to see that someone is happy to help. You’re a legend Paul. Matt Cody

Buddy Holly says:

This is the best ever demonstration. and perfectly shown. how to swing the
club for power and control !! I may have missed some thing in lessons? but
no one has put it better. power to your elbow Paul. yours Bruce

sydnichols1 says:

excellent swing Paul. good tip. will work on this.

Tour Impact Golf LLC says:

Insightful. A practical approach to improving whip like Rhythm.

srfguitar says:

Do you intentionally whip your wrists around to get the speed, or does
keeping your wrists loose do that automatically? thanks

Paul Wilson Golf says:

Your wrists are loose. The forces acting on the mass will want to make the
mass swing to its widest point. So you are not purposely whipping anything.
It is whipping because it is loose.

Paul Wilson Golf says:

Slow down. At the range there is a ball. At home there is no ball. So get
it slowly first then speed it up in stages.

patleg35 says:

Hi Paul, Thanks for your very interesting videos ! When I try this, I get a
pretty good feeling in front of the mirror at home. But on the practice
range, it always ends up with pushes with short irons and big slices with
the driver ! Like if the club & arms are lagging behind my body turn… Any
hint ?! 😉 (I am 8-handicap)

Rob W says:

you been alot of help to me, this year i started playing golf again, i
learn the game from Hogans book as a kid, which worked for me, but watching
your videos you really helped alot i am playing better now than i ever have
, just want to say thanks for your videos

dennis bean says:

having loose wrists help my game a lot. Good tip

Paul Wilson Golf says:

Great stuff. I love hearing it.

Paul Wilson Golf says:

Thanks. I appreciate the feedback and support.

Ryan Huong says:

Hey Paul I just want to thank you, I went from an arm-swinging 23hcp to a
straight, long-hitting 17 in just a few months watching ONLY your videos. I
think you are hands-down the best for the beginner. You really understand
what we need when first starting. Thank you so much!

Beretta96Dan says:

Paul, thanks for the golf instruction. I don’t get to play as much as I
would like, but you’re instructions definitely help! I use to be very
“armsy,” but after following you on YouTube, I have been playing much

pbeausejour says:

I have found your tips very helpful. Are you recommending loose wrists on
the backswing resulting in a big wrist hinge? I notice some tour players do
not present a pronounced wrist hinge on the backswing.

Paul Wilson Golf says:

If you are swinging too much inside out and you release it a little too
much you will hit the top right quadrant of the ball creating a duck hook.
You need a neutral grip and more turn int he downswing instead of lateral.
This will get the path going more down the line. The neutral grip will
reduce the spin. It’s 2 parts which very few people are willing to fix.

Paul Wilson Golf says:

My technique will be great for anyone but especially you because it does
not hurt at all. Glad you found me and I wish you continued success.

Paul Wilson Golf says:

This is telling you that your arms are buckling through impact. This is
adding loft to the club. You need to let them stretch out fully just after
impact plus you need to get the weight off your back foot through impact.
Do these 2 things and the flight will lower.

take2give says:

Awesome, thank you!!! This is solely the reason i kept slicing, really help
with my body rotation.

Paul Wilson Golf says:

In the backswing you can only hinge your wrists the amount the bones in
your wrists allow the club to hinge so I would no say this a big wrist
hinge. It is your wrist hinge. Keep the wrists loose and hinge the club to
the maximum you can in the backswing. I have had many students that I just
cannot get them to hinge less than 90 degrees because the wrist bones don’t
allow this to happen.

lester obrien says:

Thank you Paul for all these tips, i practiced some for about two weeks an
hour a day and already its transformed my game and im using garbage golf
clubs, can’t overstate how listening and putting this stuff into practice
has alterd my experience of the game

Moises Baeza says:

Fantastic advice which has really helped. Moises in London.

Gary Manuel says:

Paul I came across your video about relaxed hands and waists. Fantastic, it
works. I just have to remember to slow my body down and I’ll be trying this
new tip out today at the range. I have looked at other instructors, however
they don’t work for me. I golf with a buddy that swings like you. I have
tried to emulate him but until now I wasn’t able too. He would say my arms
are disconnected. Couldn’t figure it out now I see it. Thanks

Paul Wilson Golf says:

No this does not promote a flippy swing. I am seeing the wrists as a hinge.
There is no resistance in a hinge. The looser they are the faster they
swing plus the forces acting on the mass is what will be squaring the club.
If you are trying to square the face good luck. You have about 2 degrees
room for error at 250 yards. Use forces acting on the mass. This repeats
consistently. Watch some more of my vids to get a better feel for what I
