    Hi Paul, I’ve had instructors tell me that the butt end of my grip on the downswing should aim toward the target line. How does that fit in to your lag drill? Wouldn’t their advice encourage me to use my arms? Thanks

      As I said in the tip, there are times when you use your arms. This would be when you are working on something. You get it. Then you turn them off.

      Lag takes work. So do my lag and release drill. If you just pull the butt to the target when are you going to release it?

      Holding Your Lag Angle Too Long?:

      I have quite a few lag tips. Just search lag and they will all come up.

    I have NEVER had a “natural” release of the golf club and have always had to manipulate my hands, wrists, and forearms in order to square the clubface at impact. I truly believe your “body swing” is the way to go, but breaking a 35+year habit of arm-swinging is difficult. At 75, I still can hit 230 off the tee, but think I should be able to do better, and the lack of a good release makes this difficult. I have been working with your release and modified release drills and find if I think about releasing the club at the BEGINNING of the downswing, I can hook the ball, but I feel this drill may be also be causing me to cast, as thinking about hands and wrists tends to translate into action. What are your thoughts? Do you think this might be happening or is the golf swing taking place so fast that the thought doesn’t translate into action until I am in the impact position?

      It sure is the way to go. I prove it daily.

      You won’t be casting it as you master the roll over then stop thinking about it. I say this because you cannot even do this drill without your wrists being loose. That is the whole point. Loosen up the wrists and this drill does it. If you cast you would be tightening the wrists. Just see it a little differently. Once you get the ball hooking though make sure you turn them back off.

      Make this a habit too:
