Houston Open Tempo’s – they’re FAST

DA had the tempo working for his putter! His putt to win was 14/7, a perfect 2:1 ratio of backswing to downswing, which is the ideal tempo for the short game. His full swing was 21/7 on the driver and 21/8 on the irons, so nice and consistent and a 3:1 ratio, which is ideal for full shots.

Henrik Stenson dropped a huge bomb with a 300+ 3 wood on a par 5 and was really fast at 18/7. Jason Kokrak is every bit as long and was nearly as fast at 19/7. Dustin Johnson is another bomber and his tempo is 21/8.

Another 21/7 type of swinger was Billy Horschel, who was 20/7 on his irons. However, Billy did miss a drive way right and his tempo was 23/6. So he got a little slow on his backswing and then way to quick on his downswing. This was Tiger’s old problem.
