Alignment is likely the most overlook and under appreciated fundamentals in golf. Often times while playing a round of golf, we feel directionally challenged. When shots consistently veer off target, we as golfers have a tendency to adjust our fundamentals, our swing and too often find yourself compensating one shot after another.
If you have read any of my previous posts, you know I am a big proponent of tempo, grip pressure and alignment. What most golfers don’t know is that good tempo stems from constant (light) grip pressure and being tension free throughout the body. Additionally, good tempo provides center face contact, greater distance, and a balanced finish. Although it’s a simple concept to grasp, we all struggle with tight grip pressure, big swings, balance and tempo.
Outside of fighting tension with a larger grips, great tempo can be accomplished with the help of the SKLZ Gold Flex Strength and Tempo Trainer.
