Golf Lesson: Build Monster Lag w/ These Drills (Golf’s #1 Lag Instructor: Lag Doctor)
So here it is. You’ve been waiting for a lag building program to accompany the Key to Creating Lag Video. Well, we’re going to give it to you.
If you’ve been wanting a way to build Massive Golf Swing Lag this will be the perfect set of drills.
SHOULD YOU HOLD YOUR LAG ANGLE?
Time after time, I get students that come for a lesson with the idea that they must hold the angle of lag in the downswing.
I hear instructors say you must hold the angle of lag in the downswing.
I hear TV announcers say you must hold the angle of lag in the downswing.
They all couldn’t be more wrong!!
When you try to hold the angle of lag, one of the first things you’ll do is tighten your wrist flexors, activating the improper muscles. These are the same muscles that extend your wrist forward (the opposite of lag).
So, by trying to hold this angle, you’re essentially telling your body to release the angle.
Not sure how this works? Check out this smashing good video demonstration!
SEE HOW TRYING TO HOLD THE ANGLE DOES THE OPPOSITE
This is one of the key concepts covered in my brand new Premium video “9 to 3 Lag Builder Drills.” In this video, I go over a series of drills that will help you to relax these muscles while building more swing speed than you ever thought you could achieve.
KEEP THE WRISTS SOFT INSTEAD
Keeping the wrists soft will be the first key piece covered in this video. I’ll give you step-by-step drills on exactly how to achieve this.
You’ll start by making very small swings keeping your hand and wrist loose and relaxed, training each arm independently and gradually lengthening the swing.
By the end of the video, you’ll be performing a perfect 9 to 3 drill, which is the best drill in the world for creating lag.
A DRILL TO GET YOU STARTED
Let’s go over the first drill we use in the video:
- Take the club in just your right hand.
- If you have a swing doughnut or a club weight, go ahead and put that on the head of the club. This will allow you to feel the weight of the head, which will make it much easier to allow it to flow freely.
- Start to swing the club back and forth with very small swings, your right arm only moving a foot or so back and through.
- Keep your right wrist very loose and relaxed. Notice how, as you change direction, the momentum of the club head wants to keep swinging back, as your arm goes forward. That is lag!
