124th U.S. Open

Pinehurst No. 2

Lag Shot

Lag Shot Swing Trainer

Most golfers can only dream of replicating Fred Couples’ effortless swing. Built with an extra-heavy head and ultra-flexible shaft, the Lag Shot forces players to make a smooth, rhythmic motion. While hitting balls, the body should start both the backswing and downswing. Allow the club to follow, which’ll create lag for power. If, however, the hands pull too hard too soon, the whippy shaft will bow (bend) too much on the downswing. Invariably, the clubface will be open at impact, or the sole will slam into the turf before a clean strike can occur. Available in men’s versions (driver, 7-iron or wedge), women’s (7-iron) or juniors (7-iron). $109 to $159. lagshotgolf.com
