A Tip from Wayne

Stop Casting & Start Lagging

I see a lot of casting of the club from the top of the swing. Not an easy habit to break. Most casters don’t set the club on the back-swing, resulting in an instant throw down from the top.

One possible solution: On the back-swing, let the right elbow fold early, presetting the club. Don’t confuse tucking the right elbow with letting it fold early on the back-swing. The right elbow can fold early with your arms extending away from the body as you turn.
