Every golfer struggles mightily with producing the proper lag in their golf swings, but this video promises to solve all your lag problems once and for all!
What is lag and why is it important? Simply put, lag is the angle between the forearm and the shaft. Why is it important? HERE IS A STAGGERING STATISTIC: Lag makes up 2/3rds of your clubhead speed.
Now that you know that golf clubhead speed is created by lag, we want to show you the four simple steps that you can use to create lag simply and effectively.
Step 1 - To create lag, you need to start by properly shifting your weight. You might think that you can simply manufacture lag using your wrists. This would be a tremendous mistake because your body will automatically want to compensate and release the tension in a way that will cause a variety of faults in your golf swing. Our suggestion: Watch Step 1 in our 5 Step System Series.
Step 2 - You must stop pushing from the right side. Almost every ameteur golfer makes the same mistake... do not force lag and momentum by pushing. Instead let your left side dictate club movement and PULL the shaft and clubhead through the swing.
Step 3 - Next you need to release any pressure created by your left thumb on the golf swing. By releiving the pressure, you will free up your swing and increase clubhead speed and lag.
Step 4 - The final step to increasing lag is to follow the laws of physics and don't rotate your torso. If you start rotating from the top, you will lose lag. Instead of rotation in your shoulders, simply shift your weight and allow a free and tension free golf release.
Follow these golf lesson steps and you will have MASSivE LAG in a matter of minutes.
