Rhythm Drill to Slow Down Your Golf Swing

If I had one dollar for every student that comes to me and says I know I am too fast, I know I am too quick. I try to tell myself to slow down but I just can not do it. I have a rhythm drill that is going to help you get in sync and it is really very simple.

1,2,3 Rhythm Drill to Slow Down Your Swing

I call it the one, two, three rhythm drill. One is ready. I think that count of one is really important to let your mind know we are ready to go, we are ready to do it.

One is ready. Two is back. So watch, one, two. Notice that when I did that I did not do it staccato, staccato means choppy. I did not go oneàtwoàthree. We don't want that, that is was to stiff. Think Lawrence Well, a one and a two and a three.

Watch, we are here, we are going to go one, two, three and three comes right down through impact, watch it in action, here we go, with a driver. Simple count. Count it out loud, ready, one, two, three. Straight as a string, never a problem. The simple rhythm count, one, two, three. You know what if you are a little bit quicker you can count a little quicker but keep it even, keep it balanced, it will work out for you. The rhythm drill.
