    Default Handle dragging "just when I thought I was out they drag me back in"

    Maybe someone could look at DST golf and their new training clubs. They have a bent shaft and would seem to encourage handle dragging.

    They are the rage of the PGA and European Tour and getting some great reports from amateurs. How does this square with Brian's findings ?

    I think that for people who already know how to release it properly those clubs might just help them get adequate forward shaft lean. For those of us who like to handle drag it might be the kiss of death.

    I think folks literally have NO IDEA what handle-dragging is.

    Forward hands have almost NOTHING to do it.

    I tried the training club. I didn't like it.

    What is the main cause of handle dragging? I'm thinking too long radius for the ball, but again I'm not sure.

    I agree with Brian that mist just don't know what h-dragging is. I do it from time to time and I know why.

    Brian, why do you think people drag?
