Weight shift and maintaining lag

9 posts in this topic

I believe I move my hips (weight shift) too quickly to the left in the downswing leaving my arms behind thus creating a premature releasing of the wrist angles prior to impact.  Are there any drills that could assist in maintaining better synchronization between my weight shift and my arms so that the lag can be maintained more effectively.   Thanks in advance for any assistance.

Mike - that's a good slo-mo video.  I also am fighting the fats, but making good progress in retaining lag.  Where I seem to be hung up on is finding a trigger or thought as to when to start breaking wrists.  On 1/2 swings and pitch shots, I hit very flush, but on full swing irons, I tend to want to cast the club.  I know I'm so very close to crisp full irons, but need some kind of trigger to restrict my wrists/hands until the right momement. Thanx for any suggestion you might have.

I've never told someone to "restrict the wrists." I think you're chasing a ghost if you go down that path. I've said this several times and expanded upon it a few times, but "lag happens." It's not something you "force" or "maintain."

Correct, lag happens.  If you're casting, then something is causing you to cast, usually it's either that the weight isn't forward enough or there is a sequencing issue with the arms and pivot.

    • Pace Problem
      Do I think our GM and Pro would adopt what I am suggesting as a course policy? No.  
    • New shoes
      I am looking for a new pair pair of golf shoes.  Since I am a cheapskate trying to stay under $100. Any ideas I like to walk and need them to be waterproof. 
    • Pace Problem
      You (or your mangers) still don't seem to understand that catching another group and playing through them is slower for both groups (and for any groups following them) than if they are all simply required by policy to keep the pace.  The rules are just swell, but playing through should only be something that happens in cases with extenuating circumstances, not a regular habit.  The Rules of Golf were never intended to be used as an excuse for a chronic inability to keep pace with the course. When the course allows certain groups make a habit of playing so slowly that other groups overtake them and have to play through, then you have failed in establishing and maintaining an effective pace of play policy.  That policy is mired in a time warp from the era when courses were never full.  Those days no longer exist and different steps must be taken if a course is really serious about their pace of play.  It's apparent that your course is more concerned about the minority than they are about the majority.  I hope that doesn't eventually bite them in the behind.
    • Pace Problem
      Again, that's been our tactic for seven years, and has not generally worked.  There is not a suggestion made in this thread that we don't do or haven't tried tom speed slow groups up.  Some do, but mostly slow groups stay slow. As a rule of thumb, marshaling 18 holes takes about an hour.  If you attempt to "teach" the first time around, and then discover that you're a bad teacher or the slow group is a bad student when you come back around, by the time you "enforce", you have lost half a round of golf and you have forced faster groups to play the slower group's pace. When I see a group going to 9 at 2 1/2 hours, I tend to say, 'Oh, shit." to myself, because I know we've lost the Pace and it's next to impossible to get it back until that group has left the course.  Sadly, because of staffing cutbacks, that's often the case.  When I say something to the GM or Pro like, "If you want a good pace, you have to be out there from the beginning," it is not received well. If, OTOH, our policy is Pace has Priority on the Course, let faster groups play through, and that is what they hear when they pay, and from the Starter, and that's what the sign in the carts' signholder says, they have no leg to stand on the first time the marshal comes by and sees groups piled up behind a slow group. Yeah, I know, it's different than what everyone's used to. But if you always do what you've always done, you always get what you've always got.

      I am indeed, All down the west coast here in ayrshire there are some fantastic courses and I always feel blessed to have played most of them. I recently played round the kintyre course at Turnberry for the first time it was a real gem. Sadly the 70mph winds did nothing to help scoring leading to a morale sapping 120 score but a great track none the less. I spent my youth years playing in troon on the public owned courses. A student of the links!
