Create Lag in Golf Swing | How to Stop Casting the Club & Why
Hey guys, Chuck Quinton here, founder of RotarySwing.com with another 60 second tip and this one is all about adding power to your swing through the concept of golf swing lag. It comes to understanding the importance of lag. Lag is simply the angle between the shaft and your forearms or this wrist angle that you have late in the downswing. Most golfers throw away all of their lag right at the start of the downswing.
Why is that? The simple thing is that if you understand where this movement was coming from, you'd be able to prevent it. It's all coming from your right hand if you're a right-handed golfer. Unfortunately, most golfers are playing golf from the left side of the ball with right-handed clubs and this puts their dominant hand, most of us are right-handed, into a position where the only thing it can do is push and widen this angle.
When you take this right arm out of the equation, you learn to pull with your body and the left hand, the last three fingers of the left hand. Notice that this angle stays the same or can even increase. That's how you create lag in the downswing.
If you don't understand this concept, I want to give you a bonus video that's going to go into really in depth to help you understand how to create tons more lag in your swing and makes it incredibly simple.
