A lot of times you'll hear golfers say they're hitting good short-game shots but struggling with the full swing. Or the opposite: They're puring their irons but can't hit a pitch to save their lives.

To achieve perfect impact on both types, it's all about lag. Should the clubhead lag behind your hands into impact, or should your hands lag behind the clubhead? It depends on whether you need a powerful shot or a soft touch. Let me explain the difference.
