Why guys should swing a golf club like a girl

by Jordan on August 28, 2012

“Dude, start swinging like a girl!”

Struggling with your golf swing’s tempo?

Missing shots in every direction and not hitting them pure?

Maybe you should swing the club more like a girl!

In this weekend’s Monday Morning caddie I’ll explain why should swing like a girl.

I’ve got an excellent drill that will improve your tempo at the bottom along with three LPGA swings you should emulate.

I’ll also explain why Nick Watney was victorious at the Barclay’s.

Click play to here my thoughts on Ko and Watney and what you can learn from them.

Tempo is so important in the golf swing. It allows for:

  • More consistent ball striking
  • The ability to control the flight of the ball (less errant shots)

If you’re looking to improve those areas, slow your tempo down. By having better tempo, you’ll be in sync more. That means your body and arms will be have a better chance to reach the golf ball at the same time producing straighter shots.

That’s why I suggest swinging like a girl. Their tempo is smooth and they never try and overpower any shot.

Their in full control of their ball flight and swing. They play a precision game. They’re aren’t many male professionals left who play with precision. The major reason is the sheer length of the courses.

But another one is the size of the equipment. The male touring pro’s can swing as hard as they can because the sweet spots on the clubs are so big.

You most likely can’t afford that luxury.

If you’re a male, you could learn a lot from LPGA players but emulating the tempo in their swings. Here are a few swings to copy.

Slo Motion Drill

You’re looking for a drill now. Can’t blame you.

This one requires a lot of patience. But it will slow your tempo down and help you in becoming more aware of your body during the swing. It’s also going to help you build a more repeatable swing.

In this clip you will see Ai Miyazato once again. This time she is swinging the club very slowly. Click play to see how slow she is taking a practice swing.

As you can see she is swinging really slow. Your objective is to make a full swing in 40 seconds of more. During the swing get a sensation for how the body feels during the swing. Doing so will help build repetition and lead to more awareness n your swing.

You don’t even need to go to the range. Try this drill in your front lawn first. If you don’t care what people think, take it too the range.

What Do You Think?

After you’ve try this drill at the range, let me know how it felt.
