just got back from the range, it's ironic that I make most breakthroughs with my sand wedge on the range in terms of getting more swing speed but I think my body suddenly started to understand lag.
I first tried to feel like my left arm was totally inert, like it was just attached to my shoulder and that my wrist was just a loose hinge then at the top of my back spin my arm started to reach the peak, then drop down with the weight of the sandwedge, this creating a rhymic lag/whipping swing, when I got this right, the balls were carrying about 15 yards further.
So I tried it with my driver but I couldn't replicate entirely the same feeling, I think I did somewhat, but the fact that the driver is light means it doesn't drop so easily at the top...
Does this sound like lag to you guys? Is anyone else familiar with what progress I seem to be making...
I'm really buzzed because maybe now I am on the right track towards getting some more distance off the tee
Would love to hear any similar stories that you guys have experienced in the evolution of your golf swings.
