    Paul ,You said the release was the main factor of the clubhead speed :the later the release ,the more clubhead speed is generated.How do you keep the angle between the left arm and the shaft closed the longest possible?

      Raymond,

      You do this by keeping your wrists loose and turning your body (axis) first in the downswing. What does lag mean? It means something is trailing behind something else. In a golf swing the mass (club) is trailing behind the axis (body). The faster you turn the axis the more lag will be created. I know people will never be as loose as I want them just by loosening up so there are tons of lag drills on this site. Just go through them. Work on them. When you do you will be manually using your arms to hold and set these positions. Once you have done it long enough you turn your arms back off and the club will lag all on its own.

      How does a little kid perfectly lag it without ever having a lesson on this this yet no adults lag it perfectly? ANSWER: The kids arms have no power in them. They have no choice but to lag it.

    Paul,

    Is the release automatic or should we thoughtfully release the club in an effort to get to that 3/4 position and see three back of our hand.

    Paul,

    The problem I have is that if I just use my lower body and just let my arms and wrists go I will end up with club face closed and the ball will just shoot off to the left bouncing on the ground. It seems like I can’t find that happy middle ground where I am not killing my left forearm holding too tight and tight enough to control the club better. Any suggestions?
