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?

Bobby,

Thanks for all the great tips! I really enjoy them, but I need your help. I’m an 8 handicap player and score okay, however, I know I save the shot with my hands and want the feeling of being able to let it go through impact. Any tips or drills to accomplish this would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Bobby,

I strike the ball on the sweet spot, most when I keep my left arm straight on the back swing. This shows me my true flexibility- or should I say lack of! And I can only turn about to the 9 o’clock, or parallel to the ground position. I’m 66 and play four or five times a week. Where does the straight-left arm fit in your impact teaching, or does it?

My best swing produces a high draw, but every round I have swings where my driver hits the ground first, causing the club to snap shut and I hit a DISASTROUS low duck-hook! What causes this drop-kick and how do I correct it?
