Training Tempo (Me and DJ with a little Peter Drucker)

The good news is that you can train and improve your tempo. You’re not stuck with slow (crappy) tempo.

Training Tempo is just like training anything else in life. You need to have the right system to do it and you need to put in your hours. I just happen to have the right system, it’s called Tour Tempo, and amazingly you can put in minutes and improve… but, to make the changes long-lasting you need to put those minutes in daily (or at least weekly).

There is one more final piece to the Tempo puzzle and that is measuring your tempo. You have to track your training. I love this quote from Peter Drucker:

“What gets measured gets improved.”

Pretty cool, huh?!? (btw I created this video in the Tour Tempo Frame Counter App) How do I know I am on the right Tempo track? I’M MEASURING IT… then I can compare it to DJ and voila, I’m looking good. So, get the TTFC App and Measure your Tour Tempo!


It’s a proven fact that matching your tempo to that of the PGA Tour Pros with the internationally acclaimed Tour Tempo Tones is a way to instantly improve your golf swing. The first thing you need to do is find the current tempo ratio of your swing. The Tour Tempo Frame Counter App is the easiest and quickest way to do that, because it allows you to view and count sport action video, specifically the golf swing, by advancing the video one frame at a time. Once you have the tempo ratio of your swing, you then can compare it to the tempo ratio of your favorite PGA Tour Pro.
