To improve your golf swing timing, use a whip golf club. The whip golf club gives you a slow motion type of action so you can better see what's going on with your golf swing. Timing is defined as when the golf club arrives at the ball and is very hard for the average golfer to recognize. If the golf club gets to the ball early, the ball will curve to the left. If the golf club gets to the ball late, the ball will curve to the right. If the golf club gets to the ball at the right time, the ball will go straight.
