Hi Paul. As an operatic singer I’ve heard many times how a baby has the most efficient sound production. Babies can produce loud sounds because they use their voice in the most efficient way, similar to a child who produces slag, because his or her arms are uninvolved. Similarly, singers and gofers have to relinquish the urge to use strength and use the correct body muscles to produce beautiful singing and beautiful shots. It’s very logical but not always easy to do.
Best Regards, Ron.

Kids certainly learn everything faster and the right way. Interesting comparison to singing.
Greetings Coach Looking forward to a great 2016 with Ignition golf
Happy new year! I look forward to helping everyone play some great golf. It sure is a lot more fun.
Paul,you didn’t mention in this othewise long video the absolute necessity to keep the hands And the wrists very ,very loose .
If the ARMS stay POWERLESS And the wrists/ hands stay loose ,it’s on the rotation OF the hips/body you have to work pretty damn hard to have them turning the fastest possible .Then ,if the club is correcrtly positioned at the top as you rightly say ,the centifugal force Will take over And the theorem OF conservation OF Angular Momentum Will apply .The faster you Turn ,the more lag you dévelop ,but that’s easier said than done ,because adulte are nô longer flexible And the HIP flexors which make you Turn are very weak.
So you have to work very hard on these HIP flexors :JEREMY KLINKHAMER shows what exercises to do ,And you show yourself the benefit OF working with the Rubber Tubes !..
That was just a tip on lag. The next one is the uncoil.
Paul,How do you” stay down in the shot”
You stay down by training yourself to delay the reaction to look for the result. Too many people want to see it before they have done it. I am not even looking until 3/4 through. Then I pick the ball out of the sky. If you are having trouble staying with it just work on this position:

Greetings from Australia we are expecting a 40 degree celsius temperature today. I greatly enjoy your tips and find them very helpful but I am having difficulty reconciling my grip with how I see it in this “Lag” Tip”. When I follow your “Grip Tip” I close the gap between my thumb and hand and place the shaft of the club under the fleshy part of the base of the thumb and finish up with the club running at around 45 degrees across the palm of my hand. However when I see you in this video at the top of the backswing the club shaft appears to be in a straight line with the knuckles of your left hand and not at an angle of 45 degrees as mine is. I am therefore starting with negative lag. Could you please advise me where I am going wrong. Cheers Geoff
About 6 to 8 weeks ago you posted a video that was only your golf shots, I think just driver, from various angles and speeds (slow motion). There was no dialog, just you swinging. I think it was about a10 minute video. I cannot find it, do you know where on the dashboard I can find it or can you re-post it?

Here you go:
Thanks for keeping the good information coming Paul. Love the “Monster Lag” demo and encouragement. You are a very inspiring motivating teacher. I’ll be working on my lag for sure now.
Thanks for the kind words. I am the guy who wants everyone to get it.

Regarding your drill to get more lag, I take it that you need to feel your arms/wrists to keep that shaft vertical initially? THEN you turn them off when you drive through? I think I recall you mentioning that in certain cases you DO need to feel your arms, is this drill one of them?
This would be one time you are feeling your hands and arms. You would hold the angle and roll it so you would be feeling them all the way through this drill. You need to do this thousands of times until you master it. Then turn them off and you will still do it even with the arms powerless.

I find this “Soooo” excellent, Paul. This lag drill also helps me stay behind the ball while also limiting my habit of coming over the top. Powerful drill – thanks so much, I’m on it!!! Little 76 yesterday, only 2 years above my age – thanks entirely to Paul Wilson! Would never be in this glorified golf if it wasn’t for the 1 1/2 years of watching your thousands of tips and sim[ply practicing your drills in the great room – it works!!

Very good. I love hearing it.
Lag is important once you have a better swing. This can certainly help with over the top too. Keep doing it by making it a habit.

If you want soft or lose wrists from the top of your backswing can you really keep your lag angel down to your right leg? Will the body rotation not force the club out and the angel will deminish? Do you not lock your whist from the top hinge until the release before your right thigh. Can you really be lose and still keep your lag angel?

Hi Paul! When executing the lag angle drill, do you still begin the down swing with the legs, turning your belt buckle back to the ball, or begin by dropping your hands and arms down to your waist?
Your videos are great by the way!!

When doing drills for your arms, you are not really thinking about your legs. This is just something to focus on a certain body part. When working on drills, you want to be focused on that and if the other areas work also, great, but if they do not then you are not too concerned. You have to be hyper-focused on the drill that you want to accomplish.
