Trusting The Feeling Of Lag During The Swing (Video)

One of the biggest problems people have with lag is trusting the feeling because it isn't an unusual one for many when they begin to get that sensation. The biggest problem is as the lag moves down into the point of impact is understanding how to square the club face. If you just work on maintaining lag all the way down through the downswing into this position here where the hands are almost ahead of the ball, you got this massive amount of lag, you'll notice here that the club face is massively open to target.

If you were to just produce that feeling time after time again and get those hands a long way ahead, club face would point right and you’d lose everything off to that side. So trusting the feeling and making sure that you hit the ball straight is absolutely essential. It can be done and it can be achieved by just a slight change in wrist position. So as you move down into the point of impact, maintaining lag, yes, is very, very important. But if I'm just to move through in this position, you can still see that the club face is open. However, if I maintain lag but I just got that sensation that the left-hand is tucked under, it’s bowed a little bit as you come down into impact so it's turning this way, you’ll notice how the club face all of a sudden is very much in a square position. So it is about maintaining the lag, getting that left wrist rotated under a little bit and that will get that club face nice and square. Now, you’ll notice here that as I turn that left-hand inwards a little bit, it also make sure that my hands get quite a long way ahead of the ball. Necessary to strike the ball first and then the turf when hitting iron shots. When that ball is a little bit further forward in the stance for dry or in teed up, you can still make that same movement whether it close your bottom out much later in its arc. So just by using the wrist lag successfully and then by just using the wrist rotation a little bit more successfully as well, we can really help square that club face coming into impact and allow you to trust the feeling a little bit more.
