I’ve been training for speed in the golf swing for pretty much my entire adult life (27 years). I’ve learned what works and what doesn’t and I’m going to give you the best/fastest/most efficient way to train. But before I get to those, I want to talk about my philosophy for speed training. I’m hoping this will be your philosophy […]

The concept of swing tempo to me is one of the most important pieces of any golfer’s development, and I want to share why I believe this is true.
A couple of […]
We’re talking the Left Heel (for a RH golfer). Got a reader who wrote in:
“John Jr., I noticed in your long drive baskswing that you lift your lead heel. Should I lift my lead heel and if so, why?”

The answer was brilliant and I’ve applied it to golf and golf training ‘systems’.
The first thing to look for is: Reliable/Repeatable results. This might go without saying but does the system produce […]
Padraig shot -23 to win the Portugal Masters. He is a great golfer as well as great person, and it’s great to see him get his 15th win on the PGA Tour.
Padraig’s tempo is a super fast 18/6 on full swings.
Hope to see him qualify for the Masters in 2017!
