Slow Your Backswing

The outcome of any adrenaline rush is a tempo that speeds up . Speeding up your tempo will ruin your timing. When your adrenaline starts to flow and your tempo increases, try slowing your backswing.
Taking the club back quickly means that you will have to use more gripping power to stop the club at the top before the downswing begins. This tightening at the top means that you will automatically tighten your grip which will create a slower clubhead speed on the way down.
Take the club back slowly until you reach the top. Maintain very light grip pressure at all times during the swing.
