Missing Putts Consistently Right or Left

PROBLEM: Improper speed and timing of golfswing produces errant shots. During the golfswing, all those moving parts must proceed with the proper speed and sequence to produce good results.

This is called tempo. Poor tempo results mostly from swinging too fast, either out of anxiety or the desire to hit the ball as far as possible. To correct tempo problems, try to swing the club using the large leg and body muscles rather than your arms and hands. Hit with 80% of your power, using the same effort you would use with a seven-iron. Don't rush the downswing.

Take a full coil, start the downswing with your legs and hips and let you arms drop into the hitting position before turning on the power.
