How to Produce a Lag Golf Swing Like Rickie Fowler

The most simple way for you to increase your clubhead speed in golf is taking advantage of leverage. Lag is a giant source of leverage and can help you pick up 30-40+ yards of the tee if developed, preserved and fired in the golf swing properly.

Have you found yourself struggling with lag? Do you constantly find that your throw the club from the top of the swing and you get yourself into a scooped impact position that is lacking any sort of impressive power?

I have great news for you...

In the video below, I will show you how to focus on slowly developing lag and then how to preserve it properly in your downswing so you can pick up some easy clubhead speed just like Rickie Fowler.

Now that you have seen the importance of slowly building lag into your swing and how to use width and rotation to your advantage in the development process, it's time for you to get to work!

Here is a game plan just for you...

  • Make sure your weight shift and rotation into the takeaway are perfect before anything else.
  • Work on keeping the arms straight and relaxed with just a subtle amount of wrist set. Club parallel to the ground when the hands are at pocket height.
  • Slowly increase the amount of wrist cock as you continue into the backswing.
  • Look for the shaft to be vertical when the hands are about chest height.

From there, all you have to do is complete the turn into your backswing and then sequence your downswing from the ground up!
