Slow to Fast - Tempo & Transition

When students are struggling with transition, I will often ask them what they are feeling. Their responses will usually be grouped into (2) categories; tempo or position related. For those who say they feel quick in transition or even "stalled" at impact, I will have them focus on (1) simple, but effective swing thought. Specifically, I will have them focus on a slow and deliberate transition, followed by a fast and explosive turn of the body & release of the club. Ultimately, this tempo related swing thought is very effective for getting players who "fight" their body or club in transition to allow for a more natural and free-flowing downswing. That is, feeling slow at the start of the downswing will allow for the arms to shallow naturally and the body to pivot and move into a powerful delivery position. Then from there, a player can release the club as fast as he/she can manage without any unnecessary compensations or loss of speed.
