Tempo is an extremely important part of a good golf swing. MyGolfSwing is a $1.99 iPhone application which helps golfers establish and groove their swing tempo.
The app breaks the swing down into three sections and times each one: back swing, pause at top of swing and downswing. Drills show video and play sounds so the player can see and hear the desired tempo while practicing.
There’s a fun feature in MGS which shows the tempos of great golfers like Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus, Lorena Ochoa and others. Players can use those as templates in working on their own tempos. It is interesting how similar the pro tempos are. I’d like to see a few more in there like Bobby Jones, Sam Snead, Ben Hogan and Arnold Palmer.
Pre Shot Routine
Pre shot routine options allow the player to work on the entire swing sequence as well, rather than the swing only.
Though not the fanciest or sharpest looking golf iPhone app, My Golf Swing gets the tempo job done and can be a useful practice aid.
