Question

“In the Clampett’s Corner you did with Bill Glasson, he agreed with you that Clubhead Lag is the key to great golf, but he mentioned that faster handle speed was the way to achieve it. Any drills to ingrain that thought?”

Bobby’s Answer

Great question, Nicolas. Clubhead lag is one of my favorite topics, and Bill is absolutely right. And yes- I do have a great drill for faster handle speed. It’s a simple, easy drill that you can and should do over and over. Watch the video for my demonstration.

  1. Bobby –

    I’ve been watching your drills for some time and I think that this is the best one you’ve come up with to demostrate how to create lag..

  2. I don’t understand handle speed. Your video swing is too fast. Can you show us in slow motion what the club head is doing in relation to the handle? “The workhorse delivering the arms and hands”

    1. All THE measurements made show That THE hands ,therefore THE handle OF THE club goes THE speed OF ” g ” which is THE speed an object goes in Free fall without any résistance from THE air ( 9,81 m/s) .What gives THE speed OF THE clubhead is THE combination OF the fast hip turn and THE release OF THE club !

  3. Hi Bobby: I’m a left hand golfer. In my set-up at address, should I set my plane to the right or to the left.

    Thanks:

  4. Bobby, I am hitting all my shots high, irons and woods alike. Even using an 8.5 lofted drive I hit really high shots. What is the cause of this?

Bobby,

Thanks for all the great tips! I really enjoy them, but I need your help. I’m an 8 handicap player and score okay, however, I know I save the shot with my hands and want the feeling of being able to let it go through impact. Any tips or drills to accomplish this would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Bobby,

I strike the ball on the sweet spot, most when I keep my left arm straight on the back swing. This shows me my true flexibility- or should I say lack of! And I can only turn about to the 9 o’clock, or parallel to the ground position. I’m 66 and play four or five times a week. Where does the straight-left arm fit in your impact teaching, or does it?

My best swing produces a high draw, but every round I have swings where my driver hits the ground first, causing the club to snap shut and I hit a DISASTROUS low duck-hook! What causes this drop-kick and how do I correct it?
