Bobby’s Answer

What an awesome, dominant victory by Webb Simpson last weekend at the Players Championship. First off, I want to congratulate him on his big win, his 5th career victory and first in four years on the PGA Tour. But I also want to take a look at his new putting stroke.

He and I first met at his Coach Ted Kiegiel’s home in Raleigh, North Carolina, back when Webb was in high school. Coach Ted is a sixth degree black belt master and has an extensive martial arts background. His knowledge of power and the core helped Webb develop incredible club head lag in his downswing and a great workhorse.

After the anchoring ban a few years ago, he had to make significant changes to his putting stroke, but still kept his great club head lag he had back when he first met. After breaking down his new stroke, I have no doubt that lag helped lead to his success at golf’s “Fifth Major”.

Check out my review of his swing in the video below, and if you want to my help improving your game, come see me at one of my Signature Golf Schools!

  1. Question from David. Is the 4” forward swing bottom also the proper way to play a hybrid club in the fairway?

    1. David,
      Yes, it hold true for all shots, especially those being hit off the ground and off tightly mowed fairways. Dynamic #2 helps to give you the greatest margin of error from which to strike a shot. We need all the help we can get since we’re all imperfect!

  2. Hi Bobby, I am having a tough time getting out of the bunkers at our course mainly because the sand is always hard and pebbles/stones impacted. How would you recommend I approach these shots. Thank you!

    1. AJ,
      Remove the pebbles and steepen your angle of attacked, that is, move your swing bottom (Dynamic #2) more forward. Also, play with a low bounce wedge!!!
