Want to groove good tempo? Practice hitting balls with your feet together.

Want to groove good tempo? Practice hitting balls with your feet together.

Your posture plays a big part in your tempo. If you're too bent over, you'll tend to pick the club up quickly. But with good balance and arm extension, you can drag the clubhead away from the ball low and slow. Feel like the club's going straight back. It's tough to create extension if you don't start with it. To develop a good takeaway, try a drill I use all the time. Address a ball with a 5-iron and put another ball against the back of the clubhead. Practice rolling the ball back. If your tempo is smooth, you'll push the ball for a good foot and a half before it leaves the club. From there, you can build speed gradually to the top of your backswing. Hit balls this way, feeling how a good start sets up a rhythmic swing.
