Increase Lag for More Power in Your Golf Swing

Increase Lag for More Power in Your Golf Swing

Get More Distance in Your Golf Shots

Everybody wants more distance and here is how you get it. when you swing the golf club and you change directions on the downswing you actually load the golf club and the club bends back this way. As soon as the club gets parallel to the ground the club is now going to release the other way, back into the golf ball, so the club is now unloading. Many players that lack distance, as they swing the club down unload the golf club back here. They are trying to hit the ball from over here. They are casting or throwing the club away.

Golf Drill for Improving Lag

Here is a wonderful drill to do just the opposite, to store that angle a little bit longer or later into your golf swing. You are going to do it this way here.

  • You are going to take two fingers and put them on the golf club from each hand, the index finger and thumb.
  • As you swing the club back you are just going to rest the club on your shoulders.
  • Now extend down a little bit and as you start down you are just going to tilt your spine leaving the club back there. This is going to give you the feeling and the sensation of the club staying back and now the angle of the club will come down into here.
  • You have stored the angle as maximum as possible to be able to hit it right through the shot.

This is a wonderful drill to get the feeling up here and just keep doing that. Up on here, stretch it out, tilt it all the way down and through. It will give you the feeling of the club staying back and it will give you massive amounts of lag in your golf swing where you are basically storing the angle as long as you possibly can to deliver the load back to the golf ball. Give it a try, it will make a tremendous difference in your game.
