Tour Tempo Reviews

“My Tempo has always been the key to low scoring, that’s why I start every round with Tour Tempo.” – Garrett Willis, PGA Tour Winner

"The Unified Theory of Tempo"
- Golf Digest



"No one has ever come up with a way to teach Tempo until now."
- Travel + Leisure Golf



"The Swing Secret no one has ever told you"
- Golf for Women Magazine

“I keep the Tour Tempo tones in my bag and use them to make sure my tempo is solid all day long.” - Jason Eslinger, 2010 Leading Money Winner on the Long Drivers of America Tour

From our readers:

John, the yips went away! Thinking went away! At age 57 I hit it as far as the 37 year olds! I am thrilled with my new found swing after 30 years of searching. Thank you.

I stopped at the driving range last night on my way home, I usually bang two bags of balls and sometimes a third. Last night after three-fourths of a bag, I did not feel the need to hit any more balls; I was hitting it that good. You have provided the answer; there are no more questions.

I was amazed at the difference. My drives increased about 20 yards, and irons one club stronger. My drives were 260 yards plus, with some 290. My friends can’t believe the way I’m hitting the ball.
Thank you so much for making my golf so enjoyable

Product Decription

Tiger Woods...Greg Norman...Ben Hogan...What secret do these and nearly all golf legends share? The answer is identical swing tempo.
This startling discovery was made by John Novosel as he studied film footage of the PGA greats. He was searching for the key that made their swings so effortless and powerful, and he found out that nearly every champion demonstrated the same tempo in their swings, a common ratio between takeaway and downswing.
His breakthrough book, Tour Tempo, published by Doubleday in 2004, was an instant classic, an international best-seller and has been translated into Japanese and Spanish language editions. Its central argument — that tempo, the most important fundamental of the golf swing, can be learned quickly and easily without expensive lessons or exhaustive practice — is now accepted by swing coaches at every level of the game. Tour Tempo’s premises have been validated by an Independent Scientific Study performed by the Departments of Physics and Biomechanics at Yale University. The Titleist Performance Institute has also confirmed our research.
The book included instructional videos and the now famous Tour Tempo Tones. These gave golfers what they have been searching for all these years– immediate and dramatic improvement.
And now over 100,000 golfers worldwide, from beginners through Major Championship winners on the PGA Tour, have immediately and dramatically improved their games by using Tour Tempo.
But Tour Tempo, now in its 11th printing, covered only the full-swing shots. Now Team Novosel is back with a sequel devoted to the short game — the putts, chips, greenside pitches and bunker shots that make up the majority of strokes played in a round of golf.
Tour Tempo 2 includes a download link to the new Tour Tempo Short game tones and the videos that explain exactly how to incorporate them into your golf game. Simply by practicing to the short-game tones, the weekend golfer can master the correct rhythm in minutes -
• Got the dreaded “yips” with your putter or chipping club? TT2 has the cure.
• Can’t hit those short game shots from 40 to 60 yards? TT2 gives you the feel for the tournament player’s favorite stroke saver.
• Terrified of greenside bunker shots? TT2 reveals the tempo secret that makes sand play so easy for tour pros.
Tour Tempo 2 is more than a short-game tutorial. The full swing is explored in several chapters that pick up where the first book left off, including a cutting edge revelation –
about how you can combine Physics and Tour Tempo to achieve a consistently powerful golf swing that you might never have thought possible!


Editorial Reviews

Review

"Since Eisenhower took to the links, there have been two important golf instruction books: Five Fundamentals, by Ben Hogan and Herbert Warren Wind, and Tour Tempo, with John Novosel playing the Hogan role and John Garrity as Herb. TT2 is clearer yet.  It's like a wonder drug."
Michael Bamberger, author of To the Linksland

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow. This really works November 5, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought the tour tempo 2 as soon as I heard it was available..I play a lot of golf and practice my short game regularly but when I get on the course it's like I've never picked up a club. Shank easy chips, leave balls in the sand, thin shots over the green and fat shots that go inches ,putts either too short or too long, all costing me strokes...btw I'm an 8.4 index and am frustrated being stuck there...i had bot the original tour tempo book years ago and found it helped me a lot...bought the iPhone app, and the long game music tunes that I use to practice with...
The tour tempo 2 is a heaven sent wish....I now have the short game tempo tunes on my iPhone app and the instructional videos that come with the book in my iPad and iPhone . John does another GREAT job explaining why this works and why tempo is everything....my first practice session with the short game tempo tunes showed me how off I was with my short game tempo...way quick under pressure or too slow in the sand..I used the tunes to practice my chipping, sand and putting...worked great in practice...I felt like I knew what I was doing..BUT them again I am a great practicer..the key is on the course...the day after my first use of the tunes I played a club team match for the finals of our city club league...I was put up against a 4 hdc who made very few mistakes...I whooped him because my short game was on..I was using the tunes (in my head) and played as well as I played in a year...as John says in his book, besides helping set your tempo the tunes remove the mechanical thoughts during a swing.... that is what was killing my short game...
For the price it is a great deal...book, short game tempo tunes, instructional video (how best to use the tunes) and video called "the force" -a warm up video that really helps set your tempo before a round....sorry if this is long winded but I am excited about my new found short game tempo thanks to TourTempo 2...

5.0 out of 5 stars A Sequel That Stands On Its Own October 24, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Like many of you, I found the original Tour Tempo book to be an amazing discovery. It truly does unlock the last and best secret to phenomenal golf; our optimum tempo for swinging the club. Lest you think the first book was all that could and should be written on the subject, here comes Tour Tempo 2, which gives us all we need to master the short game. I read it in one day and then took it right to the course. Just incredible. You will be instantly amazed by the simplicity and the power of Tour Tempo for the short game, from putting to chipping to wedge play to the bunker shot. It's all there. But the authors don't just stop with the "what" and "how" of Tour Tempo... they now have fresh research from a number of well-respected professionals that speak to "why" Tour Tempo works. And if you love the inside stuff on pro golfers and their seemingly flawless swings, Tour Tempo 2 details which ones work and, when they fail, why they fail. Come on, Tiger, it's not a bunch of swing thoughts and positions, it's Tour Tempo! Here's hoping the aforementioned Mr. Woods gives the Novosels a call!

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed April 2, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I liked Tour Tempo 1 and really felt like it had a lot of merit. This book seemed like someone wanted to milk some more money out of us. It really did not connect with me. The short game is a different animal than the full swing and the author points out what the pro's do that we do not, but I did not feel like advice was given on how to adjust to the new speed that the book wants the backswing/forward swing to operate.

5.0 out of 5 stars SEQUEL EVERY BIT AS GOOD AS TOUR TEMPO 1 February 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Tour Tempo was by far the best and most helpful golf book I'd ever read. It made perfect sense and using the tones helped my game tremendously. Went from a 14 handicap to a 5 and from being the shortest hitter with people I played with to consistently being one of the longest. Although my driving and ball hitting improved greatly, I still struggled with putting, bunker play, and chipping. Now Tour Tempo 2 addresses that and is unbelievably helpful in unlocking the secret of the best tempo for those parts of your game. Again, it all makes perfect sense, and the tones on the Tour Temp Total app are great!! Extremely well written and an easy, enjoyable read. If you have an open mind and love golf and want to improve your short game and sand play, you can't go wrong with this book!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Tour Tempo Is the Real Deal! November 20, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was excited when I read that the Novosel's were following up their Tour Tempo with Tour Tempo 2. I had such great results with the first book. Well, after reading Tour Tempo 2, I finally realized that the short game of chipping, putting, and sand play had a totally different tempo than the full swing.

I put the tempo to the test yesterday. I hit two of the best bunker shots of my life! I made no changes to my swing, just simply followed the 1 to 1 ratio of speed outlined in the book. The ball "popped" out of the bunker and checked up nicely about 6 feet from the pin - both times. I couldn't believe it, and I my playing partners were stating how the shots were very "pro-like". Once you read TT2, you'll find the sand shot is finesse shot, not a power shot and the Novosel's prove that fact in their data. Additionally, a surprise chapter in the book discusses the "force" - a sort of ratio of power in the golf swing. I won't spoil the read; however, I will tell you that I'm now hitting my driver longer Imuch longer) and straighter without any changes in my swing mechanics. I do believe that one should work on swing mechanics as it will make your swing more efficient, but I will also add that swinging at the correct tempo, will fix a lot of your mechanics. Once you learn to swing to the short game tempo beats, you'll chip and putt the ball with ease.

Tour Tempo is one the single biggest discoveries for my golf game. Your game will improve overnight. TT@ is an easy read, just like the first book, and I highly recommend it to any golfer - especially for the one who's struggling to find consistency in his or her game. Gotta have this information in your arsenal. A no-brainer.

An extensive review of archival footage of the greats throughout confirmed his findings. From Ben Hogan to Tiger Woods, whether the swings were fast or slow, the winning rhythm remained constant.
