As you saw in the video waiting as long as you can to release your lag angle (delayed release) will enable you to put much more power into your golf swing.
The key is where and how you release this lag angle. By waiting till the last minute you prevent yourself from “casting” and wasting that power. The other key is that you must release that energy down into the ball, not forward down the fairway.
If you try to release your lag angle forward you will end up with improper wrist conditions at impact (and lose all your power).
Pay close attention to Marc’s wrists in the video. Although he is dumping that lag angle right at impact he still maintains a flat left wrist and bent right wrist at impact. This is the most crucial part of the swing.
If you are not able to keep your left wrist flat at impact all that energy you stored by keeping that lag angle will be worthless.
The other thing to note is how you get the club face square when you maintain this lag angle until impact. All it takes is a simple turning of your left wrist.
Getting the club face square does not require you to roll your arms over one another. This is one of the most common mistakes that results in a bent left wrist at impact. Instead you simply rotate or twist your left wrist right before impact.
This little twist motion is so quick that it allows you to square the golf club face at the last moment, enabling you to keep that powerful lag angle until you deliver that power into the golf ball (the moment of truth).
Just remember to keep that lag angle till the last moment then dump all that energy down into the back of the ball.

John,I found your site by googling Lag Pressure you have done a wdroenful job presenting these principles.Sustaining the line of compression is so very important as you know and understand. Being able to sense the clubhead lag pressure against the trigger finger or right index finger gives the golfer the awareness of the proper location and this is why I invented the Pure Ball Striker training device. This device allows the player to sense their clubhead lag pressure from the shortest putt to the longest drive. It sets on the aft side of the grip along the sweet-spot plane.While the right wrist is bent and the left wrist is flat or arched slightly the right index finger/trigger finger is now the most trailing/lagging part of the hands. This makes it possible to monitor the lagging clubhead, the sweet-spot plane and the roll of the flat, level and vertical left wrist.Thanks for such a great website and the knowledge you have shared here with us!
