Club head throwaway is one of the most common swing flaws that I see. Club head throwaway is sometimes referred to as “casting.” It is throwing the club head outward, so the angle between the left arm and the shaft is not retained or as acute, having an angle of 90 degrees or less. In order to sustain lag we must develop a better pivot because the pivot delivers the lag. It is the cargo truck. Without it, all the goods (lag), get spilled out too soon. Hence, in order to create better impact, we need to have better lag, and without a better pivot, we cannot get better lag. This is why I recommend doing the pump drill to increase the quality of your pivot, your lag, and therefore, ultimately, your impact. Read More
