  1. Your thumbnail is deliberately misleading. It looks like he has more “lag” because the club is flatter. It’s true he holds the angle longer in the improved shot. Just tell that story.
    You don’t need to resort to cheap visual tricks like this. You’re better than that.

    1. Hi, I understand where you’re coming from but that’s part of what lag is. We have no intention of misleading you. Hope you’re playing great! Play well! Quentin | TSG Instructor

    2. @Top Speed Golf – Clay Ballard So you’re saying that dropping the club down is part of lag? I can flatten the club at the top and in transition, but that in itself is not lag. The mirage in this thumbnail is not lag. A better visual would be to compare position 5 or 6 in the down swing. That’s where lag is relevant. My point stands: It’s a misleading representation.

  2. I don’t know if you call it casting or pushing from the top on the down swing, but for the most part I figured this is what was throwing my club off plane and making me hit the ground way before the ball. The key is moving most of the weight to the lead side to encourage the body to turn through the ball in a pulling motion. I don’t see many instructors talking about it, unless it’s a secret you have to pay for.

  3. Jack Nicklaus said “You can’t release the club too early on downswing if you make a proper transition to left side.” He actually says as you move to left side the club should be released immediately.

  4. Lag is working, but the ball just seems to be going a bit to the right, seems like the left wrist needs to bow a bit more to really get the driver club face to be square on impact. I’ll keep working on it, it I think it’s almost there.
