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, 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.

I’m pushing to the right with every full swing club in my bag. The ball flight doesn’t have much curve to it, like a slice. The ball goes straight, but to the right of my intended target. Help!

Can you help me with my aiming point for the fairway woods? I seem to be pulling or hooking, and this was not a problem before.

I have been pulling my shots way to the left of target. My ball placement is fairly even with my left heel. If I weaken my grip a little, I tend to push the shot to the right. I use a fairly neutral overlap grip with my swing speed of 94 mph.
