Lag for Power
Unless you are going fishing, the term “casting”is defined as releasing your angles early; or more simply stated, throwing the club from the top. This results in less power through impact.
Angles are created by the shaft and your arms. It is an L shape. Holding your angles in the downswing is what creates that incredible pop, where the ball flies off the clubface at warp speed. This can only happen if you maintain your lag. Maintain the L deep into the downswing for lots of power.
Power Failure: Releasing the club angles too soon during the downswing will zap power.
