If you click the CC button in the bottom menu and then click the settings icon (looks like a gear or cog) and then select auto-translate and select your preferred language it should work. I tested it on this video and was able to see a Korean translation. I cannot attest to its veracity, but it's there. Best of luck! Nate | TSG Instructor

I think your demonstration is great but I think your tool to mesurate speed is not accurate... 107mph with no rotation is strange and the 127mph doesn't look like ... Smash factor only 1,36 with a good hit strange also ! Maybe the ball speed is good but not the club head speed.

Smash factor is just ball speed divided by clubhead speed. 173 ball speed divided by 127 clubhead speed equals 1.36 smash factor. Clay has tested many launch monitors against his Flightscope X3, GC Quad and Trackman (even these devices don't always agree on the same numbers for the same shot) and found the PRGR to only differ one mile per hour on most shots from these devices. Play well! Nate | TSG Instructor

Clay - John Daly turns his chest with left arm glued to his left pec and at impact, his left shoulder is 10-12" higher than his right shoulder. Same with Dustin Johnson, Cam Champ, etc. Isn't this position at impact only achieved if your downswing is powered by the chest/upperbody turning and dragging your left arm along for the ride thru impact? This is what makes these guys so consistent - turning the upper body instead of an armsy swing. I would love for you to analyze and make a video on this, because all of the long hitting PGA players are in this position at impact - left shoulder 10 - 12" higher than right shoulder. The classic guys like Snead and Hogan appear to have left shoulder 8" higher than right shoulder at impact.

Just because you dont move your legs and hips does not mean that the muscles in them isn´t active. A more fair test would be having a wire attached to your belt and lift you up so you would feel weightless, and make a swing just using your upper body In such a case it would be possible to totaly "get rid" of the legs and hips.

Wow, picking up my lead foot during the follow through; finally got my pelvis to face the target at impact. Im falling out of position here and there, but I bet I can learn to train how to keep my composer. I've always been tight in rotating my hips, do you recommend doing this with all club swings i.e. wedges, irons, woods, and driver?

What degree driver are you playing and what did you loft/deloft it to with the loft sleeve? One thing I haven’t seen in your videos when you talk about the lag is how to have the lag with a positive attack angle. One thing you’ll notice with players like Tiger or Cameron Champ who have great lag is the negative attack angle. This is putting more back spin on the ball and their launch angle is several degrees below what is optimal launch conditions for max carry. They are happy with 310 carry while still being able to hit it further because of their enormous club head speed. The average golfer will not have the same tour speed and ideally would have a positive attack angle of 4° to get max distance out of their driver and reduce spin. I’d love to hear your take!

Oy oldin
MidLifeBiker

@Young Money Investments quite a few pros have a flat or neg attack angle but they have the swing speed to compensate as driver is designed for hitting up. They also have the driver and shaft set up for their swing.

Oy oldin

Young Money Investments

@Top Speed Golf - Clay Ballard Awesome thanks for the response! Do you have any idea why Champ and Woods have a negative attack angle when the optimal attack angle for launch and spin would be 4 degrees?

Oy oldin
Top Speed Golf - Clay Ballard
Top Speed Golf - Clay Ballard

Clay's driver is 9° and it's in the stock position. One of the components of lag is releasing it through the ball to gain that extra angular momentum. The difference with a driver is the ball position is moved further up in the stance, so you're still releasing that lag through impact, but it's occurring on the upswing now. We have a course for our All Access Members called the Straight-Line Release that covers this very thing.

Clay have you tried the feeling of pushing down with lead hand / pulling up with trail hand in transition ? Been working on this feeling and it has increased my lag by looking at video. It really loads and increases the angle in arms . It’s like a slingshot at the bottom of arch. I’m a low handicap golfer .

Oy oldin
Top Speed Golf - Clay Ballard

That should bow your lead wrist and create wrist extension in the trail hand, which is the ideal hand position for a shallow path with lag and should create good shaft lean at impact. Thanks for sharing! Play well! Nate | TSG Instructor

I have a question about the Prgr monitor. I've been using it to measure my speed without hitting a ball. Does it read the speed at the point where the ball would be hit, or is it picking up the fastest part of the swing? So if I was releasing the club early would it be reading that?

Oy oldin

It's just measuring the fastest speed the club is traveling and gives you that measurement. Best of luck! Nate | TSG Instructor
