Become a Golf Swing Lag Monster: Shocking Success Story

In this video, I’ll show you how RST student David became a "lag monster" with RST swing reviews and some practice time. You’ll see how David overcame his axis tilt and casting issues and how you can attack your swing issues and get the swing you've always wanted. Check out this video now to get the swing you want and smoke your shots!

  • Axis tilt is crucial for proper swing plane and lag. Must be tilted away from target. 
  • Increasing angle between the right forearm and club shaft in downswing (not holding on).
  • Lag must be releasing (getting rid of shaft/ forearm angle) through impact.

What was his club head speed before and afterward? I'm thinking if my club head speed is increasing I am improving.

Hello Rod. I apologize. Clay is no longer with Rotary, so I am unable to ask him the difference in speed. Typically, if you are working on proper shifting, sequence, and lag. You should see an increase in speed. Leading to the possibility the swing is improving.

What makes a person lose lag and cast the club. I know I am losing valuable yards because of this. I need a few things to look for in my swing I feel as though my wrists lock up and perform an all out upper body swing.

Hello David. There are a lot of culprits why a player may lose lag. Here are a few videos to help figure out your main cause. Part 1 of 7 Physics, Part 5 of 7 Using the Wrists for Speed in the Introduction Advanced Section. A good drill to start learning the feel is the Frisbee Drill.

I have always heard there are two ways to get lag. One is to have fully cocked wrists at the top of your swing and maintain the cocked wrists until you release them. The other is to down-cock also known as float-loading. Am I correct in saying the Rotary Swing approach is to float-load?

Hello William. Take a look at Wide-Narrow-Wide and the Part 5 Using the Wrist for Speed. Float loading is a way of creating lag and a little closer to the RST Concep,t than max wrist set at the top. Ideally, you want the wrist to remain soft with the weight shift (change of direction), pull from the lead arm (lead lat) and a touch of gravity to help increase the angle on the way down.

I think I understand what you are saying: the increase in the angle of your wrists on the downswing occurs due to gravity and soft wrists rather than consciously cocking the wrists more.

Hello William. Yes. The Re-Shaping Your Swing for Lag Video will discuss the gravity, shift and softer wrists.

I'm 70 yrs old and I've been playing golf for about 10 yrs. I've played sports all my life and particularly tennis. I thought I would be pretty good at golf a long time ago...didn't happen. My swing is on plane and I hit the ball pretty straight, but short, my problem is the chicken wing. I have had lessons numerous times and twice went to golf school. I've never heard anyone talk about the release, and only one guy who found the dreaded chicken wing...and he said: I've got good news and bad news: I see only one flaw in your swing & that's good, but your problem is really hard to fix! I'm thrilled that I found your site. Wow! I am optimistic!

Hi Clay, Little question on the lag. You were talking about the hinging of the wrist that has to be kept more or less as late as possible: is it something you try to keep by muscle contraction or the opposite, by a total relaxation of the wrist but the correct down swing path and tempo ? You referred to the image of cracking a whip. I think it is part of the answer, as I wouldn't contract my wrist muscle during such an exercise.. Furthermore about the whip cracking, is it an image I can build my swing on (or at least my swing lag) ? Ie backswing being the upper move you would start with a whip to "load it", downswing the counter movement to add speed to my whip and the slow down / release the way to crack my club to the ball as it was the whip tail ? Thanks for all that rich content Cyril

Hey Cyril, it's not total relaxation, but keeping it supple. We can't try to contract the muscles and force lag/angle to be retained. We need to keep our grip pressure, while making sure we aren't wrenching the club to still have some control. Your image on the whip is spot on.
