Question

I need to hit it farther, period. I am fairly accurate and have always felt I could be a scratch golfer if I could gain distance. I am 61 years old, and I still feel this way. Can you help me?

Bobby’s Answer

This is a great question, Stan! I’m so glad you sent in your video for me to take a look at. I uncovered a lot of answers for you, just by evaluating your swing. And- I think increasing your lag may go a long way… take a look below.

    How to judge distance the ball will carry out of the sand Is there a fourmula you used to judge the amount of back swing

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

  4. I am 79 Years old and I play Golf twice a week, I also have a problem with distance. Can You help me.

  5. That idea of springing off the right foot at impact has helped me be more patient with holding my club lag. My impact is way more explosive. This is a fabulous video Bobby. Many thanks and all the best at the Tradition.

    What are you referring to when you say work with ” bands” to help create distance?

I have been pulling my shots way to the left of target. My ball placement is fairly even with my left heel. If I weaken my grip a little, I tend to push the shot to the right. I use a fairly neutral overlap grip with my swing speed of 94 mph.
