Start This Season Playing Great with Stretching & Tempo!

Are you just breaking the clubs out and a bit rusty after the holiday season?  Or, are you still struggling from last season and need to get back on track?  I have a couple quick tips that will get you back on track.  First, stretch some key areas of your body every time you get out on to the range.  Work on your hamstrings, lower back, torso, arms/shoulders.  Once you are feeling fairly loose, grab a long iron and start by swinging with a half swing and gradually making longer swings until you feel like you are making full swings.  When you have done this a few times, start counting out a tempo of 1-2-3, during the first swing and keep repeating this 1-2-3  during the next few as well (A metronome is great for this drill but it's not necessary).  The main focus is to try and keep your tempo the same on all of these swings while staying loose.  After making 10 swings like this, pull out the range balls and just let them get in the way of your club with this smooth tempo swing.  This drill will increase your consistency of contact, distance and accuracy.  I know this will get you off on the right foot for this season!
