Slow motion sequence training is key to mastering the moves of the best players in the game. If you do this right (with constant feedback and monitoring through video and with mirrors) you can really see dramatic results in your swing. This kind of focused, deliberate practice is how my students and I create such impressive results.

    But there are different sets of muscles, nerves and brain activities between slow and high speed swings.
    If you want to imprint an image of the golf swing by swinging slowly, okay, but it’s not for continuous training for a high speed swing.
    If you want a slow speed swing practice slowly; if you want a high speed swing swing fast.

      Thanks for the comment! I agree and we want our players swinging Fast. In fact I love a fast tempo! However in the beginning stages of learning one needs to start slow..why? It gives you time to “think.” The goal is to get to the stage of swinging “unconscious” and letting it go! But that is definitely a process.

This video will clear up some of the questions you may have about how you should be starting down and then continuing through impact and to the finish.
