Thoreau Meets Golf In This Video

This is a perfect example of “swinging to the beat of a different drummer.” Two very different swing tempos and both of them work for their owners. We each have our own natural, internal pace and our golf swings are somewhat of a byproduct of it. Freddy Couples saunters when he strolls…his swing resembles that. Tiger walks with a brisk pace and his swing has a similar look. Next time you’re walking in the mall or down the street, reflect on your pace. If you are one who leans towards the “saunter” pace and you’re trying to swing your club fast and furious, you might want to ease off the gas a bit and find a happier medium. On the other hand, if you’re really trying to be deliberate and are swinging slowly and methodically, yet when you’re out for your evening stroll you’re outpacing the family dog, you might want to consider adding a bit of pace to your swing. Whether it’s slow or fast or something in between, you want to have balance in your swing and have it hedge more toward your natural pace rather than to something manufactured. If you do, your swing will have a better feel to it and will undoubtedly become much more reliable.
