Update November 29, 2018: I no longer (and haven't for a few years) recommended the PBS, or any home-made version of the PBS. It's been a few years since I said "Lag Happens" and as we grow to learn more and more about what causes lag, what causes its release, etc., I've come to determine that the PBS and anything that encourages pressure at PP3 or below the coupling point of the hand is actually more likely to cause lag to be thrown away than to "drive the handle forward" or whatever else TGM fans may think. Howdy members of the forum, In the past I've talked about a few swing aids that really help and are relatively inexpensive. I like training aids, but I like simple, easy-to-use, and relatively inexpensive training aids the best. It occurred to me the other day that one of the best is the Pure Ball Striker by Jeff Evans. As many know, "lag" is one of the most often discussed topics here on the forum. We see it in various forms, but "flipping" is perhaps the most prevalent. Lag is somewhat related to the idea of "lag pressure," which is one of the imperatives in The Golfing Machine (along with a flat left wrist and a straight plane line). As Lynn Blake says in the video below, "You start to throw the club. You set up convulsive throwing pressures instead of steady driving pressures. It's all about pressure.... It's all about pressures in your hands. You have to sustain the driving pressures in your hands." Lynn also says (paraphrased): "Once you lose your lag pressure, you're just throwing the clubhead at the ball." You're violating one of the imperatives of the golf swing. Jeff Evans is a well known instructor out of Macon, GA. Basic Motion with the PBS: Intro to PBS: Aiming Point: Trigger Finger: A bit of a quote from Jeff referring to a Hogan video: Jeff will be joining us here in the forum and can answer your questions.
