How do you adjust your set-up in order to create an ideal address position for each club? The iron, fairway wood, driver etc.

Bobby’s Answer

This is a great question. And much of it is discussed in great detail in my High Speed Lessons. If after watching today’s video, you still wish to learn more, I’d encourage you to check out the High Speed program.

  1. Hello Bobby just watched e ball position video. I’m a blind/ visually I,paired golfer. I’m going to the same lenght clubs . Will you video still help me since I play the ball from the middle of my stance

  2. Excellent and very clear explanation ,Bobby to this often puzzling question :your approach is the classical BEN HOGAN method where the ball always stays in the same place but with the width of the stance moving .BEN HOGAN would also close the stance slightly wih the driver and open it also slightly with the short irons

  3. What tip can you give me to turn my body and follow thru on the downswing. I always end up leaning back and not forward and lose power. I Do it correctly in practice but not when I try to hit the ball.

  4. Excellent!

    I started narrowing my stance with excellent results. My irons have been much improved but it has completely jacked up my Fairway Woods (Which I used to be awesome at) and no adjustments would help! I will widen my stance back to my old normal and I think this will get me back my 250 yard 3 wood draws I so miss!

    Now I just need you to fix my inconsistencies with my driver! My drives can be near 300 Yd baby draws to 50 yard duck hooks to 240 Yd Slices!

  5. Bobby I’m older and can’t make a good shoulder turn unless I drop my back foot off a couple inches will that change the bottom postion.

  6. Bobby I do not take a divot on any of my shots and cannot seem to no matter what I do. I therefore conclude that is why my distances are not as long as any of my playing partners. Can you recommend a drill to overcome this so I can get the 4″ ahead of the ball lowest point of the arc.
    Thank you—-Brian

  7. If I address the driver with a square stance I usually go left. If I hit with three right foot drawn back about 3 inches I hit it straight. Why the difference?

I am struggling to maintain a consistent golf swing. When I practice my swing, I feel great, but when I go to the range or the Tee Box, I can’t hit the ball consistently. Do you know what the problem is and can you recommend any drills to fix this?

Bobby, how to you judge the distance that the ball will carry out of the sand? Is there a formula you use to judge the amount of back swing?

Hi Bobby,

I recall during the Porter Cup you gave me a tip on pitch shots… to wait until you feel the weight of the club in your right index finger before pulling down. It works to this day! But I never did learn how to hit down on the ball and take that divot after the strike. So, I think you’re onto something, but at age 78 I’m not sure if I can learn it. But I’m willing to give it a try, so any tips you can provide would be appreciated.

It’s hard to learn to trust this lag as I move from wedges to the driver. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Bobby, I notice your right foot slips minutely clockwise as you initiate the downswing. I think this is actually a good drill to practice. Keeps the right heel down and facilitates a slide rather than a spin into the downswing.

I can’t seem to find a starter for my backswing. I stand over the shot too long, and I seem to freeze there. I’m 76 years old and play to a 12 index.
