Most golfers think of improving swing tempo as something that is done to gain control in the swing, but a better tempo can actually lead to significant power gains as well. When you swing with a great rhythm, you will be able to hit the sweet spot of your driver on a more-consistent basis – and you have to hit the sweet spot if you are going to hit long drives.
To work on your tempo, spend some time on the driving range working on half swings with your driver. You might not normally think to hit half shots with your driver, but this is a great way to work your way into a nice rhythm.
Make some half swings while trying to still contact the ball on the sweet spot. Then, gradually work your way up to a full swing while maintaining the tempo that you used on your shorter swings. As long as you don’t get out of your rhythm as the swings get longer, you should be left with an end result that is both powerful and reliable.
