The golf swing is one of the most complex sports motions to master and there are countless factors that contribute to a long, straight shot. Clubhead speed directly translates to ball trajectory and distance but, getting the most out of your body mechanics is the difficult part. That is where swing tempo (or timing) comes into play. Converting the torque that your core creates into clubhead velocity relies on the hips, legs, upper body and arms to work in perfect harmony. While most people think that if they swing harder at the ball, the ball will fly farther. This is not entirely true. In reality, it is a relationship of the amount of energy that is efficiently transferred from the core to the upper body through the arms and into the hands and ultimately through the golf club that dictates how far the ball will fly. That is where the TempoTRAINER, the best golf swing trainer comes in...
The TempoTRAINER is a patent-pending, golf training aid that will improve ball striking and distance through its unique dynamic weighted sleeve mechanism. Founded on principals of physics, the ideal golf swing velocity profile should have a maximum clubhead speed through the ball. However, many golfers actually decelerate the golf club at impact resulting in a loss of clubhead speed. The TempoTRAINER starts with a stainless steel stepped shaft by FST. We couple this is a custom designed grip from PURE Grips, one of the leading grip companies in the game today. At the base of the TempoTRAINER we install a powdercoated weighted steel sleeve over the tip so that it rests against one of the the upsets on shaft. We then slide on a specially designed compression spring with stainless steel fasteners that hold everything in-place. The total weight of the TempoTRAINER is about 40% greater than a long iron and this is good reason. The added weight alone will help to develop critical core muscles used in the golf swing. As you pick up the product and begin to swing it on your normal swing plane you will notice the weight compressing the spring (this is what you want). Using this weight design, we can help focus on keeping the clubhead speed maximized through the ball by keeping the spring compressed through the impact zone. If you can imagine the downswing in terms of a velocity profile, we want the top of the swing to be zero and the bottom (at impact) to be the maximum. This is the reverse in the follow-through portion (maximum at impact and coming to a rest at the top).
Golf swing tempo is a common area that can be improved upon and one that can lead to consistent play. Read what Golfsmith has to say: http://golftips.golfsmith.com/proper-tempo-golf-swing-20007.html
