Question

Is it better to adjust my aim point or my ball position to compensate for the varied length of clubs throughout the bag? The Golfing Machine points out that due to the Law of Conservation of Angular Momentum, longer clubs will not square to the delivery line as early in the downswing as shorter clubs. I am not certain if that affects the low point of their respective swings, however. Many thanks in advance for your answer . . . the Impact Zone videos have certainly helped me achieve much more consistent contact and better ball flight!

Bobby’s Answer

Hi Steve,

Thanks for your question. Glad the DVDs have helped you! To answer your question: don’t change your aim point or ball position- stance width changes, but the ball position should remain almost the same. for all of the clubs, except for the driver.

 

Thank you!

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.
