Music on the Golf Course

When it comes to playing and listening to music on the Golf Course there seems to be a harsh 50/50 divide amongst golfer’s opinion on the subject.

Music on the Golf Course - Golf BPM

If you read the comments on blogs, Reddit, etc. about music on the course you will see there are some passionate opinions*.

MARK C.

“Not just no, but hell no! I just want to play golf without being subjected to music I would never listen to if I had a choice, and I certainly wouldn’t impose my tastes on others who more than likely don’t share my musical interests. Nature, conversations, the sound of the club hitting the ball – that’s more than enough. And yes, by all means, call me an old fart and a dinosaur. So be it.”

But on the other side there is an equal amount of people who love playing music from their golf carts.

COLIN

“Oh ya, music for sure as sometimes you here that song that gets you going, and it just puts you back in that rhythm you needed to finish strong!”

One point everyone is missing is that music is actually bad for your game. I know as the founder of a golf music App I should not be saying that but its 100% true. Think about this… Every song has a different BPM (beats per minute) and your swing needs to be the same every swing.

So, if your swing is 156 BPM’s and you are listening to a song with 156 BPM’s awesome! But the next song will be at 92 BPM’s… not awesome. You may think the music is keeping you calm or relaxed but in fact you are speeding up or slowing down your tempo between every song.

This is one of the main reasons Doug Timmons created Golf BPM. In the early days of the iPod he noticed many of golfers on the range listening to music. He’d always approach them and ask what they were listening to. Doug would then ask them to fast forward to the next song on their iPod. His point was to show them the difference in beats per minute of each song.

If you are going to listen to music on the course or driving range, make sure it matched you swing BPM. If you want to know your swing BPM… get the Golf BPM App and you can discover that. Once you know your BPM you can either use the Golf BPM music, of go onto Spotify and find a similar BPM.

Spotify actually has stations for runners like “Running 156 BPM’s” so runners stay at the same pace from song to song.

Music to Listen to While Practicing Golf

Walk onto any driving range in the world and you will see numerous people practicing while they are listening to music. It doesn’t matter if they are listening to rock, rap, country or any other music… Whatever they are listening to it is 100% hurting their rhythm, tempo & timing.

Music to Listen to While Practicing Golf

If you are dancing to a song you move to that beat. Then another song comes on and you have to either dance slower or faster. Then a Pitbul songs comes on and you are done dancing till something else comes on 🙂

It is no different on the driving range or golf course. Each song that comes on has a different speed (beats per minute). This will make you experience changes in mood, feelings, heart rate, approach and ultimately your swing sequence.

So that begs the question, is there a way to effectively use music to help you swing more consistently? And the answer is “Yes” but its going to take a small bit of work on your part.

First, you need to know what your current swing speed is in relation to beats per minute. Then all you have to do is create a play list of songs on that BPM sequence. The trick is finding out which BPM you currently swing at.

Luckily for you we have a tool that will help you determine your current BPM. Go to iTunes or Google Play and search and install “Golf BPM”. Once you have the App installed signup, pick a station and you will then be taken to a screen to choose one of four speeds (BPM’s).

We recommend that you choose 144 which is a mid level speed. Once you have that chosen, select a club type, choose a song and start hitting to the voice and musical prompts in the song. On the one count start your swing, on the two start your downswing and on the three make impact.

It will take you about 5 to 10 shots to get the timing down and relax and get into a rhythm. Once you are consistently timing the beats you can then consider moving the BPM up or down to match your swing. Just tap the BPM drop down and select a different speed.

Now that you know your preferred swing speed in relation to beats per minute you can find music to listen to while practicing golf. All you have to do now is find music that matched that BPM.

The second and final step is to create a playlist of songs at that BPM. That is as easy as Googling “songs at 144 bpms”. The first result is a website called Jog.fm and there is a list of 1500 songs in the 144 BPM range. Click here to see the list of 144 BPM songs.

If you are serious about listening to music when you practice and/or play golf do yourself a favor and figure out songs that actually help you stay on a consistent BPM.

Golf BPM Putting Music Released

Golf BPM Swing Tempo Music App has added Putting, Chipping and Short Game music. The App release marks a major milestone and musical addition. The music is at 131 beats per minute and has musical prompts and beats to help golfers create consistent tempo at a perfect 2:1 swing ratio.

“It doesn’t matter if you have a 2-foot putt, 40-foot putt or 30-yard chip… When it comes to chipping and putting the best players in the world all have a consistent 2:1 ratio on these shots.” Says Golf BPM founder and PGA member Doug Timmons. “I was able to figure out the exact sequencing, and then created music that meets that timing.”

Golfers can now develop smooth putting and chipping strokes that rival PGA players by timing their movements to the musical and voice prompts.

“This is the most significant App release we will do this year” says CTO Jeremy Callahan. “App users can now fire up the putting music as soon as they install the App and try it at home. Before, App users had to wait until they got to the driving range to try our music. Now they can use it immediately in the most critical area of the game.”

The release also includes an exclusive Lifetime Membership offer for $49.99. There are only 500 of these memberships available.

Hidden Benefits of Golf Swing Music

Today I wanted to tell you about the benefits that Golf BPM swing music can have to your game. Most golf training devices usually involve some sort of physical device made out of plastic. Golf BPM is just music with subtle tones that you time your swing to.

If you swing to the counts in our music, you will develop a perfect tempo and timing. But there are some more subtle things you will also benefit from that are not always obvious.

Listening Off Course

Getting your breathing, thoughts and mind in the proper state before a round is extremely important. The problem is, there is no way to do this and no one knows where to begin. The first hidden benefit of our music is that you can listen on your way to the course in your car.

Our tag line is “Music makes your body move”. By listening on your way to the course your mind and body will connect so that the second you step out of the car you’re in the perfect headspace. I recommend that you mute the voice count and just listen to the music only.

As you walk to the club house you will be relaxed and grooving to your perfect tempo.

Swinging Slower

As you know swinging harder never produces better results.  You can swing faster or shift your weight more violently but that will not help you. Have you ever watched a professional woman swing? Fred Couples or Ernie Els?

These players have one thing in common. They are using perfect rhythm, tempo and timing to produce maximum results. In particular, you never see a LPGA player overswinging or trying to produce power with muscle.

The second benefit of Golf BPM is that you can actually swing at a slower pace and produce the same or more power. Think about the last time you played golf and someone in your group said “That was a great swing” after you hit a shot?

They didn’t compliment where your ball went, they complimented your swings rhythm, tempo and timing.

Swinging Faster

The third hidden benefit isn’t for everyone. This is usually reserved for Seniors, Women, Juniors or beginners. These are the people that have long deliberate swings that are slower than our lowest BPM (126).

If you fall into this category, then Golf BPM can speed up your swing in a positive way. All of our four BPM’s are at perfect swing tempo ratios. So, if you do feel the need to swing faster, then select the next BPM and know that even though you are swinging faster, you will be in perfect form.

Better Contact

After you get the musical timing down to your BPM you are going to notice something right away. If you impact the ball on the 3 count… your contact will improve, and the ball will consistently go straight. 

You will also notice that if you are late on the 3 you will fade or slice the ball. And if you are early on the 3 you will hook the ball. Having said that, this is not a way to learn to hit fades or draws. It’s just a byproduct of bad tempo that makes this happen.

It really comes down to your body being off beat. If you stay with the counts you will be harmonious, flowing and in-rhythm. And by simply doing that, your contact will improve dramatically.

Kids Love It!

Last summer while I was running my junior camps, I decided to test the music with the kids. I fired up the music on a speaker the final 30 minutes of the first day. Not only did it work with kids that had never swung a club before… They loved it.

The next morning, they were begging me to turn on the music so they could hit to it.

If you are introducing golf to children, the first and most important thing is: It has to be fun! If you are a parent you’ve struggled to teach your kids something. Do not be that parent on the course… Keep it fun! Fire up the music and sit back and watch your kids swing to the beats.

And for that matter… If you are teaching your husband, wife, kids or anyone else, don’t be that person on the range giving advice when you can’t even break 80. Just have them put on Golf BPM and time their swing to the beats. Keep if fun, keep it simple.

Release Date of Putting & Chipping Golf Music Set

Golf BPM Swing Tempo Music CEO Doug Timmons and “The Dukes” drummer Greg Jacks have collaborated and completed recording for putting and chipping music. The music is set to be released in the App the week of May 28, 2019.

The collaboration produced 36 new tracks that App users can listen to while putting and chipping. All of the musical prompts and beats help golfers create consistent tempo at a perfect 2:1 backswing to downswing ratio.

Timmons traveled out to Phoenix, Arizona and went into the studio to work out the final details and sequencing of the music timing. “In 2018 when I created the putting music, the timing always seemed a bit off. Working with Greg we were able to finally nail the exact sequencing needed for the perfect putting & chipping rhythm.” Says Doug.

The music is set to be added and released in the App the last week of May. “This is the most significant App release we will do this year” says CTO Jeremy Callahan. “When we initially launched the App in January, we did not have enough short game music to release. Rather than wait, we decided to get the App with the full swing music out and release the short game music later”.

About Greg Jacks

Greg Jacks is the co-founder of Dynamic French Art Rockers “The Dukes” which was formed in 2010 by Jacks and Francois “Shanka” Maigret. They have released three records: “Resilient Lovers”, “Victory”, and “Smoke Against the Beat”. Jacks was also part of the multi-platinum pop rock band Superbus, which won an MTV award, and 2 French Grammy nominations (winning in 2007 for Best Rock Album).

Golf Music Can Help Your Tempo

Golf Music - Golf BPM

If you head out to your local driving range, you will see tons of people listening to music while they are practicing hitting balls. If you go to a PGA event and head to the range, you will also see the pros practicing while listening to music.

That begs the question… what are the listening to? And better yet, is that music helping their tempo, rhythm and timing?

The answer to if the golf music is helping is 100% NO! Each song in your playlist has a different BPM (beats per minute) and that is not helping your tempo.

In the early 2000’s when the iPod came out this same exact question came to Doug Timmons. At that point he had been teaching golf and started to notice more and more golfers were practicing with golf music. Doug loves music and out of curiosity would ask what golf music they were listening to. Of course, this music ranged from hip hop to rock to pop and everything else.

But all the music had one thing in common. And that was it was not helpful to the golfer’s rhythm, tempo and timing. And as an instructor the main issue in his teaching was, he could never consistently teach students how to develop perfect tempo.

So, Doug created “Golf BPM” golf music. Golf BPM is an App similar to Pandora with stations and playlists with one gigantic difference. All the golf music is tailored to help golfers of all levels develop perfect rhythm, tempo and timing in their golf swing.

When it comes to golf music compare what the pros are doing…

First, let’s look at Rickie Fowler. Our swing analysis of Rickie shows that he hits at 184 beats per minute. In a “Golf Digest” online article Rickey listed four songs he loves to listen to:

1. “Wake Me Up,” Avicii – 124 BPM’s

2. “Radioactive,” Imagine Dragons – 136 BPM’s

3. “Mockingbird,” Eminem – 84 BPM’s

4. “Take You Higher, Goodwill – 128 BPM’s

Second, here is Rory Mcilroy list from the same article. Rory swings at 156 BPM’s

1. “Wake Me Up” Avicii – 124 BPM’s

2. “Under Control” Calvin Harris – 126 BPM’s

3. “Sweet Nothing” Calvin Harris – 128 BPM’s

4. “Can’t Hold Us” Macklemore – 146 BPM’s

Article link: https://www.golfdigest.com/story/golf-and-music-pro-golfers-playlists

Now I’ll concede that both Rickie and Rory certainly have better musical taste than me but their music selection from a beats per minute perspective is all over the map. Not to mention that the BPM’s are at a much slower pace than their actual swing.

It’s interesting to see that with all the technical advances in golf that even the best pro players are not effectively using music correctly. Think about that… if you find that you swing at 184 BPM’s then all you have to do is find music in that range.

Here are two options you have for finding perfect golf music for your swing:

Golf BPM Music App: First, Golf BPM will also help you determine your perfect swing BPM when register on the App. Then all the golf music has three distinct beats and a voice prompts. Golfers just pick a station, club (driver, 5-iron, etc.) and then put in their headphones and time their swing to the music.

The second thing you can do is once you know your BPM you can then download an iTunes add-on called: “BPM Detection”. With this add-on you can see and order all your songs in iTunes by BPM. Then you can create your own golf music playlist at your exact BPM.

With the Golf BPM App and the BPM Detection add-on you now have a fast and simple solution to having perfect, tailored golf music to practice to.
