    Steve Stricker Golf Swing Analysis: Consistency vs. Distance (Golf's #1 Lag Doctor)
    As we know Steve Stricker is one of the top golfers on the PGA Tour for the last 4 or 5 years. I am sure you have heard a lot of great things about his golf swing. But what is the reason for his large discrepancy in distance and consistency. 
    Steve is one of the most consistent players on the PGA Tour, but also one of the shorter players. 
    His consistency stems from his superb body control. His hips and shoulders do not spin out of control or get over active. He could also pick up some easy speed by downcocking to start the downswing and gaining lag and release. 
    I look forward to working with you very soon on the website. Good luck with your game!!

    1. Sergio is not increasing the downcock or lag angle during the beginnings of his downswing, he is DECREASING the angle. That is, the angle is getting smaller, not larger!

    2. 'thumbs up' on the back swing automatically creates the look of lag as a by product… AKA Dustin Johnson. ..and if you think of replacing left shoulder with right…that creates 'lag'. Stricker's bank balance confirms that putting and chipping is better than being 30yards further. … Every now and then he puts wfist cock into swingvfor a big boom but rarely

    3. Extremely helpful video.  I'm a member at RotarySwing and I've always liked Clay's instruction.  Stricker is a local boy to me and one of my favorite players.  That said, I'm still going to continue working hard on creating as much lag as I can with these drills.  It's helping so far!  -Andrew

    4. Agree that most hacker golfers like me would do better simply copying Stricker's swing with its minimal wrist set. I'd kill to hit a 280 drive and in the fairway.

    5. He does have a solid swing. I like a lot of his movements. I was just commenting on a simple way he could improve his distance with only a little effort. If anything, this would make his consistency even better, since he could put out even less effort to get the same distance or better. Good luck with your game! ~Clay Ballard

    6. Steve Stricker's golf swing has been lauded for its simplicity and consistency. He is playing very good golf with his current swing. Why would anyone suggest that he needs to make changes in order to gain driving distance? Sticker obviously values accuracy over raw distance. Amateurs would do better to copy his swing than most any other pro.

    7. The move seems more severe in a swing that is on a flat plane. Sergios swign gives the appearance that he is cockign his wrists more than he really is. The camera would need to be at around a 45 degree angle shooting downward to get the most realistic view. There is still downcock happening in the swing. Most people can get 20-30 degrees of radial deviation and the rest will come from the angle of the grip in the hand. Hope this helps. ~Clay Ballard

    8. This so called "downcock" is an optical illusion created by the camera angle. What's actually happening in Garcia's swing is that the club is falling backwards at the top of the backswing away from the camera, in order to create a flatter downswing path. It just makes it look like the angle is increasing. Most people are limited to about a 90 degree angle, since anything much more than that is just anatomically not possible – try it!.

    9. I agree he is a great player. He is always around the top in strokes gained putting. He makes a ton of putts from 5-15 ft, and almost everything from 5 ft and in. This is on of the reasons his scoring averages are so low (.727). I am not saying that he has to change this, only talking about the cause and effect it has with speed. The only person that could make the decision of whether the change is right for him is Stricker himself. Good luck with your game Brad. ~Clay Ballard

    10. I like your analysis, but man, Stricker led the PGA tour in 2013 in Scoring Average, Par 4 Scoring Average, and Birdies on par 5's. There isn't one thing I would change about Stricker's swing. I wouldn't even suggest it. Now Sergio? Yuck.

    11. Absolutely. He has a lot of good motions in his swing, he also has much more lag and release and better sequencing than the average player. Overall, he has a nice swing. Just a couple of areas where he could do even better. ~Clay Ballard
