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!

    • Phone. I tried the Apple watch for a while but didn’t like it, it was missing or double registering. I just saw a press release from arccos today saying that they updated the watch tracking and it’s out of beta. I’d be interested in hearing if others have tried that yet.
    • Just curious - are using a phone or the Caddy Link belt device?
    • Olympic athletes are in a different world.
    • I ended up making an appointment at PGATSS and got fit in their tour studio. Overall it was a good experience. It wasn’t as magical and data driven as seen on TXG videos appear to be, but I think I came out of it with what I wanted. I was trying to be brand agnostic, but did mention that I would buy the Ping 425 Max if I just bought off the rack. I tried maybe 3 different heads, but we primarily focused on that driver. I wasn't hitting well at all that day. But then again I don’t have a consistent driver swing. I warmed up with my flimsy Callaway Strata driver, and he asked if that was my actual swing. He said my swing speed was 80. Swinging slow and in the middle of my stance is the only way I can hit it straight, and it goes super high for about 220 and stops. If I put the ball in the front on my stance I hook it way left. Anyways when I actually swing for real, I was averaging 100-105 swing speed.  Ultimately I ended up getting a 9* Ping 425 Max with a 65g Ping Tour Stiff shaft, turned down to an 8* with the weight set to fade. At first I was a little skeptical, because I didn’t perform well there. I was still hitting it to the left. He told me I just needed some practice with it. After a few rounds last week, I’m very happy with it. I’ve been averaging about 275 with it. I’ve even hit a few 290 according to my Garmin watch! I’m so happy to have my first real driver!
    • I think that the current prices of gold and platinum that they use are reflected in the price. Seriously - what sort of idiot would pay these prices? In @billchao's post for two fairway woods I was wondering where the iron set was.  People are paying for a shafting, not shafts. Geez.
