    A simple way to maintain lag is for the sole of the clubhead and the tip of the handle to always move in the same direction in the forward swing. The sole always moves leftward in the forward swing, but if lag is being lost, the tip has pivoted to the right. This effect is especially apparent when the club flips in the impact area. At 1:10 in the video you can clearly see the tip backing up.

    Pierce says, “this is the hardest one to change,” and he’s right. Lag gets lost when the golfer hits with his/her right hand because of how powerful it feels to do that, and, well, because it just makes sense to, so we keep doing it even after we understand it’s the wrong thing to do.

    I do not believe that the ‘angle gets narrower’ right from the top as you say. You are being fooled by parallax because the camera is not perpendicular to the plane of the swing but is facing the player. A few minutes in front of a mirror with a club in hand will demonstrate this.

    Many think that Sergio Garcia has some great amount of lag increase on his downswing because of this effect when in fact he merely has a flat downswing plane which makes the fabled ‘angle’ seem more acute.

      Spot on, see also Ben Hogan…the lag in the photos is an optical illusion. But it is the basis for so much of this create lag/hold the lag obsession.

Yes, you heard me, one of the best drills we have is the battering ram drill. It is awesome for getting the relationship between body turn and arm swing correct, and improving your impact conditions. Enjoy the video, and hope this helps!
