Your First Steps to Hitting the Ball Farther! Should you be working on speed or Distance?? and what’s the difference?? Everyone is talking speed these days, especially increasing your speeds. I’ve been on that train for oh… about 20 years now! And while I was one of the early adopters to drinking the speed kool […]
There are 4 ways to increase speed in the golf swing. You can improve/adapt/utilize: Tempo Body Mechanics Speed Training In a previous post: Two Keys to Distance and Four Keys to Speed I highlighted using tempo to increase speed. What does it mean to improve your BODY? It might start with proprioception. That’s a fancy […]
Blake is your typical 59 year old golfer, he’s had a surgery or two and in the last few years has lost some serious yardage on his drives. He found out about what about Tour Tempo training, and was ready to give it a try. It all starts for me with the ‘before’: Tempo: 26/9 […]

Hope you are well. Some of your clients appear to snap the bar from a higher starting position with a shorter range of “snap” – while stronger clients appear to be snapping from a bit lower starting position with a longer, more explosive “snap” of the bar.
