Three Books,

Three Revolutionary Secrets.

TOUR TEMPO  started the revolution with its groundbreaking discoveries that shattered the paradigms on rhythm in the golf swing. But it also delivered the simple and effective Tour Tempo tones so golfers of all abilities could swing faster and employ the 3:1 ratio used by the greatest players of today and yesterday. The Result: Longer and Straighter shots… with less thinking!

TOUR TEMPO 2  continued the work of the original with a focus on the short game and a new ratio. The 2:1 ratio and the new Tour Tempo short game tones. The Result: wedge shots, chips and putts closer to (or in) the hole!

TOUR TEMPO FORCE  delivers the third secret by combining the tenets of Tour Tempo with the physics of harmonic oscillators and pendulums, explaining how you can optimize your long and short games by applying the proper force in the backswing and downswing. Specific drills are explained and demonstrated, plus for the first time in 10 years, we introduce new Tour Tempo tones. The Result: more focus and more speed!

RECODING FOR POWER

Ben Hogan once said, “Reverse every natural instinct and do the opposite of what you are inclined to do, and you will probably come very close to having a perfect golf swing.”

I’ve discovered over the years that most (basically all) golfers have the same types of faulty movement patterns (Hogan was right). I would show the golfer the correct pattern and then they would do it. Problem Solved, right? Wrong! Even when I showed the golfer what to do and how to do it, and even when the golfer did the right movement in the drill, they would still go back to their old movement over a ball. I realized that I had to do more than just get the correct muscles to fire, I had to ‘LIGHT those MUSCLES UP’ with some type of resistance or external force to overcome. I call this RECODING.

Optimizing your swing – and in the process reap more distance and accuracy – requires you to Recode your Motor Patterns. When I did this with my students, changes would finally take place OVER THE BALL (that’s important:)

If you have questions about the Drills, please contact us. You can also send me a video of you performing a particular Drill and I will provide you feedback.

Tools Needed: You don’t need training aids for this series. You do need a medicine ball (or ball of some type such as a basketball) and some type of band that you can hook to a door or cable machine.

**Safety Notes** Consult your physical practitioner before starting any exercise program. Make sure you are using a new/secure band. You do not want the band breaking and/or coming loose. When throwing medicine balls, make sure you are in a safe environment (eg., ensure the ball won’t bounce and hit you in the face; also I’m not a fan of catching medicine balls off of a wall, just let it land).

Testimonials:

“If you are serious about gaining speed and working on your turn this is a MUST. I picked up 4mph club head speed and have only been doing it for a week. Can’t wait for the impact series.” J.L.

“Wow John, this is fantastic! Gave me a lot of different feels and a great training/warm up program.” J.P.

“Went through my session this morning, and then some tempo work tonight on 21/7. Recorded 98 mph with the 5 iron on the SSR. A personal best. I definitely feel more mobile.” S.O.

FAQ

Which medicine ball/band should I use?

For men, a 8 to 10 pound ball will be fine, don’t want it too bouncy and also needs to be ‘squeezable’. For women 4 to 6 pounds would be fine. The resistance bands should be ‘light to medium’ meaning you don’t have to strain with all your might to move them.

Where can I order these products?

If you need bands and/or a medicine ball here are my suggestions.

For Bands:

https://www.performbetter.com/categories/band-tubing/general-bands-tubing

I use the Gray Cook Level 3, 4 or 6

and for around the body I use the first place super bands, 1/2 thru 1.5 depending on your size strength.

For Medicine Ball:

https://www.performbetter.com/Soft-Toss-Elite-Mini-Medicine-Ball

6 to 12 lb depending on size/strength.

How often should I be RECODING?

You can do these drills 1x per week, 3x per week or every day. Most of my students (PGA tour pros and amateurs) find 4-5x per week optimal. But you WILL see results doing them 1x per week for 10 minutes.

Will these drills help an aging golfer?

Absolutely! These drills apply to all golfers but will especially help an aging golfer who is losing the ability to load due to restrictions in movement.

@beaubryan unleashing some serious🔥🔥 power on the new Speedball set up.

In the sport of golf you HIT something. In your training you should also HIT something. At full speed. And it should be safe. And it should ideally give you resistance (more than a ball) So that your body (and brain) gets shocked into creating an adaptation (more speed) 🎯🚀

If you’re down in Alabama give him a shout and get some speed into your game!

New year, new equipment to test! Just got the @go_exxentric K box and this thing is unreal💪💪👌!! I did squats and then morphed that into a semi golf swing move focused on my lead inner ankle high (hard to see) plus exploding out of the movement. Using a XL plate and it gives you some serious resistance!

I did a few swings after this and my hips opened with IABH up like never before!

Can’t wait to try the k pulley next!

@andreas_exxentric see how I’m using the slant board??👊👊

I’ll be testing the flywheel technology in the coming weeks and how it applies to speed training!!

@heydrrob you will love this thing💪💪!!
...

@golfingindependence put out a 7 iron challenge....I see your 220 and raise you 2.6 yards!!💣💣😜😜

@cappsgolfkc let me know when you can break the 140 ball speed barrier with your 7 iron👊

Been using the @flightscopegolf Mevo (the small one) and it’s incredibly accurate for ball speed plus super convenient size.

Tempo on this swing is just under 20/7. Using forged @callawaygolf 7 iron and pro v1x ball. With sweet @bushnellgolf T😉

#tourtempo

I’m starting speed training again and getting a baseline this week. When you train for speed you need to know where you start so you can track your progress!!
...

Great stuff here from @_johngriffin__ he is slowly but surely improving his swing 🎯🎯⛳️ he’s using the tour tempo Speedball to get resistance/improved impact and teach his body to overcome the collision 💣💣

This is a brand new setup for 2021. He’s using the speedball club, the new ‘kickstand’ and 2 resistance tails aka the power module.

These are now back in stock, give me a shout if you’d like to try one out!!💪👊
