Online Golf Instruction: Best Drill Ever to Create Golf Swing Lag Today we're going to discuss one of the biggest myths in creating lag in the golf swing. We are also going to learn one of the easiest drills ever to help you create golf swing lag. It all has to do with using a baseball swing to improve. Many golfers believe that creating lag is a matter of holding a wrist angle and really pulling down, keeping the wrist and forearm tight and just praying you can keep the angle through the downswing. Unfortunately, that's never going to work. In reality, lag must be gained and released, never held. To get lag, you need to keep the wrist really lose and soft, and let the club hinge back. If you tense up while trying to hold that angle you'll contract your wrist flexors, losing the angle of lag. One of the biggest keys to lag is making sure to keep your wrists nice and loose and soft as you swing down. The club head is heavy and naturally wants to lag behind. https://RotarySwing.com --- Follow RotarySwing: Website: https://rotaryswing.com Facebook: https://facebook.com/rotaryswing Twitter: https://twitter.com/rotaryswing Instagram: https://instagram.com/rotaryswinggolf --- Make sure you subscribe to our YouTube channel here for new golf tips each week! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrv92yiaIQQJr6D786s3taw?sub_confirmation=1 --- I hope you enjoyed our RotarySwing.com content!

Scott Ehlke: Stop swinging at high pitches!

ben gurion: typical. he gives a eighty only lesson while forgetting us lefties

grazer770: two words five syllables. Bryson Dechambeau

Marshall Cox: This is a brilliant tutorial, Clay.

Mukesh Patel: interesting points ,if anyone else needs to find out about golf video tips try Boshapra Instant Golfer Boffin (do a search on google ) ? Ive heard some extraordinary things about it and my co-worker got cool success with it. 

Jay Smooth: People struggle with "lag" because they manipulate the club head and hit instead of swing. As a matter of fact most of the common errors ams make is because they can't tell the difference between hitting and swinging. If you truly are struggling with lag then learn to swing instead of hit. If you are using your body in the same sequence you would throw a ball you wouldn't cast the club. 

Glenn S. Marks: Clay u are asesome

Eric: At 1:32 you're not really generating that  much lag are you or else the shaft would be bow'd like a mofo in the link I provided.  I'm just trying to figure out how much lag is too much?

Eric: Sorry Clay, Youtube fails.  Here take a look.  As you can see I'm generating a bit of lag and the shaft is like a wet noodle.  What should I do?  https://www.facebook.com/eric.brewer.1297

Eric: Clay how can I not flex my shaft so much? 

Rich Rolwing: Hey Clay!--Regarding the "similarity" of the golf swing to swinging a baseball bat, what would you think of a drill where someone took a position in front of you (like a pitcher) and rolled a golf ball towards about where your swing path would be, whereupon you would time your swing to hit the ball and of course hopefully make perfect contact?  Do you think expanding on the whole baseball comparison so that you're swinging at a moving ball might improve your timing and help you avoid casting the club? (Incidentally, not to be a negative Nellie but it when your objective is hitting a baseball with a bat it is also possible to "cast" the bat--it's not necessarily automatic that you're going to "lag" the bat and make perfect contact all the time, having played my share of baseball I know this from personal experience (unfortunately it seemed to have transferred over to my golf game for much of my life)--I think it is easier however to learn to hit a baseball more solidly, for the reasons you state in the video, and because the moving ball helps initiate a more instinctual response than having to look at a ball just laying on the ground and wondering how I'm going to start a series of events by which I am going to contact that ball solidly and send it where I want it to go.

Rich Rolwing: 5:22: "Heavy weight of the head..."--That's what she said!!

George Francois:

Dahni Uru: Most golf videos spend most of the time with a talking head.  You do a good job of showing what to do.  Keep it up.

Larry McCraw: Mickelson has a ton of lag and a roll over of the forearms release.  Great if he can time it right, if not he will be in the woods a lot this week.  Kuchar will contend and just may win, couldn't happen to a nicer guy, hated to see him lose to a couple of lucky shots Sunday.

Troy Thom: Im wondering how you get such great sound quality? What microphone or device do you use?

Mark Kitching: So is that an R11 or G25 under that TM headcover Clay? :-) Another great lag video, thanks.

Jeff Hall: You have suggested that the right shoulder slows down or even stops for a brief moment on the down swing, and by doing this it allows the arms to release the club faster.
This is an Illusion.
What really happens is the shoulders continue rotating, you can clearly see in Tiger Woods swing that the left shoulder never stops nor does it slow down, it rotates around a center point,  the right shoulder assumes that center point for a very short time at some point just before impact thereby fooling the eye in believing that the shoulder is slowing down. 

Jeff Hall

MrWattsy84: Richard I think I'm in the same boat as you, do you feel you force the club into these positions or let you body cause the club to fall into these positions? I believe the weight shift to the left from start of downswing with soft arms/wrists and grip allows the club to fall into the correct position, it's starting to work for me now but I still cast a little just before impact.

Richard Juchniewicz: Hi Clay, im cast and its heavily ingrained into my swing, trying to work on building lag, etc. I tend to cast quite early, i wouldnt say i throw the club, its more like the angle of lag is lost smoothly from the start of the downswing. I think im guilty of over rotating my upper body and unwind the shoulder too early. Thinking "extend right arm" is a dangerous thought being a caster, at what point are you starting to extend the right arm ? how low are the hands before you start ? also, the initial "baseball" swing down into the slot, just before you start extending, what is this movement driven by ? is this all created from the hip bump and the body pulling the upper down ? its not driven by hip rotating right ? as im thinking this would cause shoulders to unwind ? is this downward start of the swing an active movement you feel in your upper body ? like dropping your right elbow into the side of your torso ?

What i can feel with this drill that is distinctly different from what i feel im actually doing in my swing is the feeling that my right shoulder has to stop rotating or slow down at least or my arms swing around and to the left of my chest. Sounds obvious to me then that my shoulders are unwinding too early in the downswing ? and if im right, the video on the 'right shoulder's role in downswing' is an important one for me ?
