Question

Champions Tour Player Bill Glasson on lag

Bobby’s Answer

Bill Glasson is a colleague of mine on the Champions Tour.  He understands, just like we do , the importance of lag. 

Week in and week out, he sees his pro-am players dumping lag, losing speed, distance, contact, etc.  Here he talks about “dumpers and laggers” and I’m sure you can guess who the “dumpers” are.

If you really want to improve your Clubhead Leg, I’d urge you to have a look at our training program: Clubhead Lag Home Study Course.

  1. Im realy having a hart time keeping my back angle,it cant be as hard as seems.whats a good drill for working on back angle in the swing?

  2. Thank You Bobby for all your videos and imparted knowledge from the impact zone! I have always had lag, too much lag for many years and I blocked everything right a bit. My issues with this was hitting too many fat shots as well. As I aged and had spinal surgery, my swing changed out of necessity. I am now a picker of sorts, but I make solid contact and I have gained considerable control with out hardly any loss of distance because of equipment but more due to impact. I am down to a 6 HC, but I only take tiny tiny divots with my short irons and hardly any with the longer irons. I don’t know how or why I am able to pick the ball so accurately, but I think it’s because I have mastered my clubhead lag, and moved my swing bottom approx 4″ in front. If I can tee the ball up like on Par 3’s I am deadly accurate and take a proper divot, but on a perfect lie in the tight cut fairway I pick it, generally well but should be better. I also have very good hands and coordination which is the key in all of this. Can you explain to me if smaller divots equates to more consistency using your 4″ swing bottom with proper lag? And maybe some drills to take a bit more divot off of close mowed fairways? Thank You!

    I have. been hiting behind the ball. Wether it’s the driver, or any
    other club. What do I do stop hiting ground and miss hitting the ball first?

  4. Amen. After all this time @ 2 years. Its all making sense and it really works. More distance, divot. Ya Hoo. All I had to do is make the club handle go faster than the club head. Now I bump the work horse and rotate and wow. Thank You. Bobby and Bill.

I am struggling to maintain a consistent golf swing. When I practice my swing, I feel great, but when I go to the range or the Tee Box, I can’t hit the ball consistently. Do you know what the problem is and can you recommend any drills to fix this?

Bobby, how to you judge the distance that the ball will carry out of the sand? Is there a formula you use to judge the amount of back swing?

Hi Bobby,

I recall during the Porter Cup you gave me a tip on pitch shots… to wait until you feel the weight of the club in your right index finger before pulling down. It works to this day! But I never did learn how to hit down on the ball and take that divot after the strike. So, I think you’re onto something, but at age 78 I’m not sure if I can learn it. But I’m willing to give it a try, so any tips you can provide would be appreciated.

It’s hard to learn to trust this lag as I move from wedges to the driver. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Bobby, I notice your right foot slips minutely clockwise as you initiate the downswing. I think this is actually a good drill to practice. Keeps the right heel down and facilitates a slide rather than a spin into the downswing.

I can’t seem to find a starter for my backswing. I stand over the shot too long, and I seem to freeze there. I’m 76 years old and play to a 12 index.
