Creating Lag in your golf swing: The best ball strikers who create that mega lag that seems to launch the ball far and straight is accomplished through proper takeaway, which allows the club to set on a proper plane and through proper body rotation during the downswing which allows the club to lag behind.
Everyone wants to drive the golf ball farther and straighter. So how do you accomplish this? The answer lies in creating proper club lag in your golf swing! This is what the good players and pros of the PGA, LPGA and Champions Tours do to hit the golf ball so far and straight.
In order to create proper lag in ones golf swing it is necessary to first develop a good understanding as to what is lag and how it impacts distance and consistency.
What is Lag? The easiest way that I can explain it to you is that it is pulling the golf club with your BODY as opposed to pushing or casting the golf club with your hands and arms.
It is important that you take some time to develop a good understanding and learn the difference between wrist hinge and wrist pronation.
Wrist Hinge (Right Hand): Wrist hinge is when you move your wrist side ways. The human wrist only hinges 23 degrees.
Wrist Pronation (Right Hand) : Wrist Pronation happens when you cup your wrist. The human wrist can cup 90+ degrees. The wrist cup action is absolutely necessary in order to get your club starting on a proper plane in both the back swing and down swing. At the top of the swing the right hand wrist pronation helps you get your right hand under the shaft, thus the club stays on a correct plane angle.
PowerLag Pro is specifically designed to help you develop proper wrist hinge and proper pronation of the wrist.
While it's not necessary to have lag like Ben Hogan or Sergio Garcia, however, having sufficient lag in the golf swing is crucial to hitting solid and accurate golf shots and improving your golf swing. Increasing lag in the golf swing and getting rid of the dreaded casting motion is one of the most sought after pieces of golf instruction advice there is.
How to create and practice lag? first, put on your PowerLagPro and take a 7 iron and assume a proper athletic and balanced setup position. Make sure you are completely relaxed and start your back swing in a one piece for the first three feet from the ball.
