To understand LAG better, check out this video.

Tyler Ferrell breaks down how JB Holmes creates 122mph club head speed with a less than “full” swing. This video will help you understand how lag is created and transferred and what you have to do differently to create more in your own game.

It is not created from more vertical hinge in the downswing.

  1. A really interesting analysis particularly the shaft being perpendicular to the shoulders late in the downswing. I wonder whether this is common among top players.

  2. Good analysis. The overhead view spoke volumes. I saw an interview with JB where he indicated his release was way out in front of the ball (shown by the clubhead catching up with his chest in your video) and in his view, was key to generating his clubhead speed.

  3. Jack Nicklaus said HE could release from the top fast enough and HE is the greatest golfer of all time… how does that make any sense by you teaching someone to LAG< have you ever looked up the word "RELEASE" in the english dialect?

  4. Thank You Golf Smart Academy. I'm a 6.2 handicap and always thought lag was to hinge and hold your wrist. But after watching your video, I saw the light 🙂 This video totally changed my game. On Trackman I would carry my 7iron 157 to 160yard on average with my old swing. Now with your concept applied, I'm carrying my 7iron 172 to 175 yards on average.. no joke.. My 5 iron is starting to carry 191 to 193.. Thank you so much for this revelation..
