How Fast Should I Go?

How fast should it be? Are there any guidelines for backswing speed? Obviously, the backswing does not impact club head speed through the golf ball. Or, does it? Watching some of the best in the sport, you see backswings for the pros vary from the quick paced Bobby Herschel to the slower, more rhythmic Ernie Els. Which one is right for you?

Beginners Welcome? Really?

You have some time between jobs on Saturday and want to get out with your youngsters to play a few holes.
