Balance, rhythm and tempo in golf are concepts that seem to be simple but can oftentimes be confusing to players of all skill level. Balance is the ability to position your body in order to maintain a certain stance. Rhythm in golf is a time ratio between the backswing and downswing. Tempo is the speed of that rhythm. Rhythm are the “beats” and tempo is the speed of the beats. Markers in the backswing and downswing can be assigned with beats. The majority of professional players use a prescribed ratio between the backswing and downswing. If you can identify and apply this ratio it will allow you to see improvement in consistency.
Can rhythm, tempo and balance be applied in everyday life? Absolutely! Everything has a time and place. While you need to be proactive, you also have to realize that planning and execution work hand in hand. Finding rhythm & tempo in your life will allow you to achieve balance which can lead to happiness and success.
