Many hard working golfers walk the thin line between consistent golf and inconsistent, dying to get on the good side.  The great divide exists because of a few variables, but the #1 reason is the ability to strike the ball, and then the turf.

 

Why is this so important? The golf club is built with loft.  You DO NOT have to help the ball into the air, but should in fact remove loft away with a forward leaning shaft and clubface.  If you are like many golfers you cast the club from the top of the downswing.  Casting leads to thin shots, chunked shots and to much loft (backward leaning shaft and club face.)

Early release of club, this is casting and also throw away of angles and stored power.

 

Think Back- have you ever mentioned, “I hit the ball straight, but all of my irons go the same distance?” This video is for you to hit the ball further than ever, and stop casting!

Lag is not created, but allowed to form as a result of 4 things:

1. Soft Grip

2. Soft Wrist

3. Passive hands, NO pulling

4. Weight shift igniting the downswing, again no pulling hands or club!

Notice Rory with soft grip and wrist, and passive hands.  His downswing is started with his weight shift.  Great Lag!

If you can do the 4 things mentioned, you shots will become more consistent, helping you to play your best golf.  See my other videos on downswing and impact for further assistance.

Thanks for taking the time to read and watch this,
