This is a unique training club and, I think, quite useful in not only developing lag but improving rhythm, pace, and timing. That, of course, can all add up to more consistency and distance. It has the loft of a 7 iron, with an an extremely whippy, beautiful blue shaft, that takes a little getting used to, as it has added weight. You’ve got to be patient with swinging it and let the weight and whip do its thing. In my first session with the club, I was not so patient and was a bit frustrated.
First, swing it easy a few times at the range, with varying backswing lengths. As I mentioned, this might take a while to get the hang of it. I think it would also be a good warm up club before playing as well. I really like that whipping action. Then put a ball down.
That’s right. You can hit balls with this club (just in practice, of course, and not while playing!). And it goes about as far and as high as a regular 7. Straight too, if you swing it easy and let the club and gravity do the work. After a few shots, switch to your regular 7 and see if you can emulate the swing you took with the Lag Shot.
In my second range session, I did much better and was getting excellent results that lasted throughout the session.
So, yes, I’d recommend this training club as part of your quiver of swing aids. And there’s nothing else to it: no tears, no tangles, no hidden gimmicks for you to buy. It’s a bit pricey, but well-made, with free shipping, and a 30-day money back guarantee. Check out their website and video. It’s presented by noted British teaching pro Adam Bazalgette.
