When doing this drill, what do you think of the notion of the lead shoulder moving away from the chin?

You don’t ever have to think of your shoulders in the downswing. They will uncoil all on their own if you use your legs.

When you say move your belt buckle to initiate the downswing and maintaint the lag angle, can the same motion be accomplished by straightening the left knee? In other words would straightening of the knee occur too early in the swing or would that initiate the proper downswing?
This was just a drill to get the person feeling the lower body moving instead of whacking at it with the arms. If you go to straighten the left knee just make sure at the point where the left arm is parallel to the ground in the downswing both knees are still flexed. They would be because in this short period of time your belt buckle would have only turned back to the ball. I just don’t want you overdoing it and getting this leg too straight too early. Remember, this leg is not locked until the through swing when the right arm is parallel to the ground.

You are good teacher, mentor, fun and persistent. I have a fantasy of golfing myself in a course while I am watching
your video drills. I’m enjoying. I have been practicing your drills at home and I’m getting to the point where I am
easy and fun playing golf this day. I often question “why” after I made shot before.
From your teaching, my own learning by playing has so much faults in swings and it takes many many years to be good.
But still my swing has its own way. As on and off golfer it won’t be easy and fun golfer. I love your swing drills and each
process to do easy swing. I’m 76 olds. when young, I was good athletic in school days.
I’m busy learning your golf drills this day and I don’t have any specific question at this time because you’re drills of golf
is easy golfing.
One day I’ll go to your golf school.
Don’t quit creating daily golf Tips. I am enjoying and it’s fun.

Thank you for the kind words. I truly appreciate it.
Glad you are improving. Please let me know if you can make it to town. It would be a pleasure working with you.
These drills are very bénéficial to YOUR correct learning of the downswing and lag :they should be done both in PLYOMETRICS mode ( Moving ) and ISOMETRICS mode ( Hold the position),and increasing the résistance provided by the tubing : I use up to three tubings at the same Time to increase résistance and therefore the stregthening of YOUR core muscles .There’s an alternative tubing System ,called the ” BODYLASTICS ” where you have a graduation of tubings ,getting more and more stronger .

Paul, it may seem strange having had many golf lessons and watching countless videos of yours but it was only last week I discovered at a lesson where the hips should be at the point of impact. I now also understand what the heavy bag prop you hit is teaching you to do. Maybe there are others like me but showing the position of the hips at impact might be a revelation to some of your viewers.
Not sure why you didn’t know this. I have done quite a few tips on it in the past. This is certainly a huge element of the golf swing. Without this you will not get the power you are after. I ideally you want them upwards of 45 degrees open at impact. Not sure if you are confusing my tips with others as I would never want you hitting an impact bag unless it was about 2 feet in front of the ball. If you are hitting it at impact you are thinking of hitting something. I want the arms to fully extend after impact to the release point.

Such a great drill to keep one from hitting with the arms:)
Yes, this is a good one.

Same feeling you have in your real swing except you are good at it so you can hold the lag without thinking about holding it?
In no way am I thinking about holding the lag angle.
July 7, 2017
Yes true. I know you are not thinking hands but is it Ok for me for a while to think hold lag and release? At least im not hitting and casting the club:)

If you are working on a specific hands/arms position/drill then you would feel your hands/arms until you have it mastered. Then you turn them back off.

I would appreciate a video or two about lag for seniors. As a senior, I seem to do better by forgetting about lag and letting the club start releasing from the top, but not casting. I do get good movement with my hips in the swing.

There is no difference for seniors. Lag is lag. Here is a senior I got lag in 2 minutes:
2 Minutes To Perfect Lag: https://ignitiongolf.com/2-minutes-perfect-lag/
Lag means something is trailing behind something else. Your wrists need to be loose in order to do this. So loosening your wrists would be a great drill to be working on. Releasing early is helping you loosen your wrists which is why its working for you.
