Tempo

How do we define TEMPO?

Tempo in golf swing is often overlooked as an important element to create consistent, efficient ball striking.

Capture speed does not refer to how fast the authorities can apprehend a suspect. To be successful on the putting green, one must be able to have a relatively consistent, optimum capture speed.

The Key to Solid Chipping - Chipping Drill 1

The Key to Solid Chipping
