Consistent tempo in your swing is a must to get the most out of your shots. When tempo is constant it not only helps you stay in sync but also gives you control over your shots. A great drill to use is to swing the club about six inches above the ground. Make three full swing back and forth all the time keeping your balance at the finish. This will help you fine tune your tempo and help you build speed and balance without going at the shot 100%. You will find that on the third swing you will be some where around 70% of your full power and remain in balance at the finish. You should hold that finish for about three seconds. If you can do that then you are in total balance and your arms and core will be in sync with one another. That third swing in balance will be the swing tempo your should try to achieve on every full swing you make. This goes for every club wedge to driver. You must have a consistent tempo along with a balanced swing to stay in control and get the most out of what you have to offer to your game.
