And what I've got for you today, is a little tip on lag.
A lot of people want lag, I don't know why you want lag but we'll give you lag.
Here's a kid with the most of it, which is Sergio Garcia.
Too much is not a good thing, I don't think.
I'm going to show you here, how to get lag and I'm going to also include a drill that'll help you get there.
Usually what I'm more concerned with is not so much the lag, as much as a lateral motion in the golf swing, which causes your club to prematurely lose its angle.
And as a result, you lose what the engineers would call angular acceleration.
All these fancy terms for a Cuban, it's too much you know!
So watch I'm going to draw a line right here next to Sergio I wish I was a bull fighter Garcia.
Look how high his hands are.
Now, he says "My dad taught me to pull that on a chain with both hands" Now he said a chain, not a piece of string.
Davis Love III "My dad told me to pound a steak into the ground." He said pound it didn't say tap it.
Al Geiberger says "I feel like I'm ringing a bell." Jack Nicklaus, "I feel like I have to get my arms to the ball before the buttons in my shirt get there." Beat the buttons.
Tiger Woods "The arms win the race" Meaning the race to the ball.
Now, if they're all right and you've got to pull down here right.
That tells you that if your back swing is around yourself, if you take the club low and flat around yourself, you're toast.
You got no shot, because if the second move is to pull down, the first move had to be to go up.
So that's why I always say, "Reach up for the ceiling fan and then pull down on the string." Ha ha ha.
My way to think of it.
But watch this, his head is not going to cross that second line.
See, it goes back in further.
That is also ...
anybody who's got a bunch of lag, their head's going backwards.
I don't care who it is, Nicklaus, you name 'em.
And they're all trying to get the tip of the left shoulder even with the ball at impact, or else you're offsides.
And that is usually what kills lag.
Looking at Sergio from this side, look out, see, his chest is still facing us.
Usually what I see, most people, they send me a video ...
Which by the way, you can send me a video of your swing absolutely free first one.
Let me take a look at what you're doing and I can send you back a drill and everything.
Their chest is already facing the ball at that point.
And that's why they're over the top, you want to know why people go over the top, because they start with the chest first.
You want to get rid of over the top, start with the arms first.
Just do just the opposite, it's that simple.
See, when he goes up, boom, up, boom, up, boom.
Now having the most lag doesn't necessarily mean you're gonna be the longest hitter.
It's definitely a big help.
A big help.
But you look for instance at Bernhardt here, and you'll see the same thing.
His head's gonna go backwards, I'll tell you one thing, this Bernhardt is unbelievable in his conditioning.
Look at that.
See, see the head go backwards.
And that's what keeps this L formation together.
Now sure Sergio's is even more but, I don't know whether that's good or bad to tell you the truth.
But I know one thing that's good, and that is get the tip of the left shoulder and the ball at a straight line at impact.
So for that to happen you gotta have some tilt.
That body's gotta be tilted back some.
Here's Jack Nicklaus, hey Jack, where'd you buddy.
There he is.
I'm telling you it's Jack Nicklaus wait, there you go, see.
He doesn't have a huge amount of leg, nor does Tiger Woods.
Its not a matter of having a lot, it's a matter of not losing the angle you have too early.
Watch his head go back.
See, look at the shaft gettin' loaded, look how it's stressing right there.
Tip of the left shoulders at the ball at impact.
Look at the head go backwards.
So what I'm gonna include for you here, that will help you, if this is what [inaudible 00:05:15].
And again here's what's a real [inaudible 00:05:19] you really need ...
Please take advantage of sending me a video of your swing.
It's absolutely free.
And I'd be able to tell you and save you probably hours and hours and hours of aggravation because you might perceive you are doing A but you are actually doing B.
It's not that you can't see it yourself, it's just sometimes ...
it's hard to be self critical of yourself and sometimes you don't really see what's going on.
But here's Sergio, yeah, see how his head is looking over here at about 2 o'clock.
This is what we used to do when I was a kid.
We'd put our bag right there, right where his bag is, keep your eyes there, keep your eyes there, keep your eyes there.
Pull down, pull down, pull down, pull down.
That's what the 2 o'clock drill is which I'm gonna include right now.
I'll explain to you exactly how to do it.
You keep your eyes at 2 o'clock to keep your chest from squaring up to the ball.
Now understand that as you first start doing this, I don't care what drill you start doing.
Everybody thinking 24 hours all of a sudden everything's fixed [inaudible 00:06:38] didn't go that way.
We're called Quick Fix Golf you've got the fix now, you just got it in a matter of minutes.
It's quick, but applying the fix is gonna leave you logging some reps.
Some of the best work you can do is in front of the mirror or get yourself a little ...
download the V1 app or something on your cell phone.
So you can see yourself doing the drill properly.
See that, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom boom boom, around he goes.
All right! Hope this helps you out, this was about lag.
It's Bobby Lopez here, Quick Fix Golf and the drill is gonna start playing right now.
Speaker 1: Bobby Lopez here and we're gonna do the 2 o'clock drill.
I'm gonna show you how to do it right and how to do it wrong.
I'm pretty good at doing 'em wrong well, haven't had a problem with that!
The reason I'm going over this is that it's so important that you do the drill the right way.
Think of a drill as medication.
That's why in our lesson manual we have a whole section on how to do a drill properly.
And if you take the medication the right way, even though it may seem slower, you'll actually get results faster.
So right here I'm gonna stick the club right in my belly button and I'm going to turn to what I would call 2 o'clock, 12 o'clock was straight ahead, 2 o'clock.
Because one of the things that's really vital, a lot of people miss, they just their arms there you don't take the chest.
Gotta take the chest with you.
Yeah, you got back boom.
The whole purpose of this drill is under the premise of what the engineers call angular acceleration or just like having a bunch of skaters in the circle.
Here's the one in the center, here's another one, hold on hold on.
Let me draw like a real circle here.
I [inaudible 00:08:35] draw a circle.
There you go.
See, and it keeps getting bigger and bigger until you get the outside part of the club head.
Its gotta cover a much larger circumference then this tip of the shoulder.
It only has to get to here so we have a straight line at impact.
Just like if you're having one of these long distance races and this runner starts here, this runner starts here, this runner start here, this runner start here.
Same thing, in order to make the distance that they're running all equal to each participant.
The participant, didn't think Cubans could know a word that big, participant.
Jerk I am.
Look at this.
Ha ha ha.
I can't [inaudible 00:09:19] white hair.
You ol' fart.
Right, then I bring the club right back to my belly.
I keep my face looking at 2 o'clock.
I pull down with the arms and I don't move one iota.
I don't know how big an iota is but it ain't a lot.
See I'm trying to square the club up.
That's the first way to do it, then I go ahead and grab the whole golf club, turn to 2 o'clock, up I go, I've got an exaggerated amount of tilt.
By the way, I'm freezing my butt of out there.
See and I'm bringing myself down, I don't allow my head to move at all.
See, which keeps me behind the golf ball so that the tip of my left shoulder, my left arm and the club and all are at a straight line at impact.
That's what I'm trying to do.
Now, one of our members, Les Murray, was so kind to be willing to make a fool out of himself, just like me.
And this is so important that when you guys are doing a drill, send me a video of your drill.
That's why I've got this thing set up as unlimited, on purpose.
Because even if I just send you a two minute video but it keeps you from doing hours of aggravation and doing more harm than good.
Here poor Les is doing the drill this way.
Watch, he's a good spot right here, right now he's got an A+.
He's gonna go from an A+ to a D- watch this, see.
He's taking his body and his body is going down with the pull down.
The whole idea is to separate the arms from the body.
Separate, these arms have to move and the bodys gotta wait.
Just like if you've got a bunch of soldiers here lined up and the DI comes up and he goes [inaudible 00:11:33] right.
Lets see which way would be to the left.
Ha ha ha.
It doesn't matter! [inaudible 00:11:43] left this way.
Who was the idiot in the Marines, [inaudible 00:11:49] that's what I am, a Cuban [inaudible 00:11:51].
This guys gotta march like crazy, this guy's just marking time he's not moving.
So all of this, your body is marking time, while this guy marches, marches, marches, marches.
That's why Sergio said "I feel like I'm pulling on a chain with both hands." Pull down on the chain, pull down on the chain, don't move your body at the same time.
If you're moving your chest at the same time your arms will not be able to keep up.
Your left shoulder is going to get off sides.
Although he's done a pretty darn good job here.
Pretty darn good job but it scares me that he's moving the body with it at the same time.
See you want to get here, come one, up, up Cuban.
There you go, look there, look at this.
You'd think somebody that could roll that well would be able to do this.
Ha ha ha.
You people, you can't laugh at yourself anymore your political correctness, everything crap.
Okay so you rode 90 miles and you get free peanut butter and a green card.
Here you go see.
I pull down, nothing else moves.
Let me see if this works.
Hold on, I'm going to put this back here like that.
Hold on hold on wait wait ...
here we go, now watch this.
Lets do it in real time.
There, there see, there, there, there, boom right then it all times up together.
Pull, pull, pull.
There you go.
All right, that's the 2 o'clock drill.
Then I'm doing this, you can do like Ben Hogan.
I feel like I'm pulling an arrow out of the quiver.
Actually feel like ...
oops, glad I didn't turn it off yet.
Actually feel like you're going that way.
Don't go towards the ball actually pull out.
Like Hogan says he's pulling an arrow out of the quiver.
By the way the shaft should be up above the head on all of this but I'm too lazy.
It's just a drill so I don't really pay attention to that but yes, I would want to get my shaft up above my head if I can.
Because the higher I can go up here, the higher the chain is that I'm gonna pull down on, the more speed I can create.
[inaudible 00:14:19] Davis love.
All right! Good luck! Get to work on the 2 o'clock drill if that's your problem.
