I have tried for years off and on to create lag in my swing. With no true success. I understand the fundamentals in how to create lag. I've even felt what its like to successfully preform a swing with lag and loved the results. I just cannot make it a permanent part of my swing. Does anyone have any full proof drills, tools, courses I could use. I'm willing to totally start over in my swing.

Trying to create/working on lag doesn't really work. You need to work on a proper, centred pivot with enough weight forward at impact and a good amount of speed. Do that and lag just happens.

Then you have not been paying much attention-Plenty of other people embed his videos here. If you like them not so bright-Monte is your guy!

Keys #1-3 I agree-Lot of two. Can't get the handle forward without the weight properly forward.

Read these two classic threads and look up Key 1 (steady head) and key 2 (weight forward). Ultimately, what "lag" is all about is achieving an inline impact (key 3), which means the club shaft and your lead arm form a straight line at Impact instead of flipping, allowing you to compress the ball.

If you get those two keys working reasonably well, lag will just happen, but if you aren't achieving those keys, all the "lag drills" in the world aren't gonna help you. Lag happens when other things are done correctly, you can't really isolate it as a "thing" to work on.

Excellent I will start working on this!

    • Woods talks about the 9 windows drill, shaping shots and height. Obviously this was recorded before the accident. Wonder what else they have in the archives. 04:30 - It's a center strike, some players will flail it off the toe. NOOOOooo!!!  
    • Day 87 (22 Sep 21) - Today was "wedge Wednesday".  Worked with the PW (46deg), GW (52deg) and LW (58deg) at varying distances up to 75yds (meant I had to hit from a neighbor's back yard (he has given me permission to hit from there, big thing is that I don't try to make big divots with the wedges but rather serious bruising of the grass).  I also did the blind corner shot today - I can set up to where I have to come over the corner of the shop and land the ball at the pin near the garage door.  Makes for good accuracy.  The goal was to get the ball to land just short of the pin and roll out toward it.  For the balls short but still in the longer grass, I worked on simple punches with clubs for easy up and downs.  
    • Shhh... We need a bit of underdog narrative... Ha. Seriously though, I don't think anyone with sufficient understanding actually thinks that the team bonding aspect is the critical win/lose factor. But it's not hard to miss that the band of paper underdogs routinely over-performs in this format. The President's cup OTOH curiously has a reverse record. While we can't objectively quantify it, there's gotta be enough in team bond aspect to warrant the attention. 
    • We walked around a bit. Watched some tee shots on 10 and then walked up ten and showed the guys I was with 17.  Then we walked over to 13 where I like to watch the tee shots.  It is possibly my favorite hole on the course.  It is a bit of a walk but is a little less busy over there.  Grandstands on 18 would be great as well or #1 tee box grandstand but good luck.  Haha  
    • thanks!  Did you walk around most of the time or was there a spot you liked hanging out to watch particularly?
