Question

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.

Bobby’s Answer

Gary, this is also something  have struggled with. In fact, many Tour Players have had the same problem. The key here is mobility, which means keeping movement anyway you can to ease tension and free yourself up. I explain in today’s video:

Comments

  1. I am a right hand player and more often than not my drives and long fairway wood shots start out exactly where I am aiming but eventually fade to the right which often gives me a challenging next shot. Can you give me a suggestion or two to eliminate this fade of mine.

  2. I don’t trap or compress the ball. I seem to sweep the top of the grass without taking a divisor. Any advice for this?
    By the way, you hit the greatest shot I ever saw, at the armature at Planefield N. J., that high hook onto the green on the first extra home. I really rooted for you that day.

When I try to lead with the body, and let the hands come last, I have a tendency to get under plans and get the path shifted too far right creating pushes and hooks, any thoughts on how to lead with your body but still make sure path gets left or on plane?

I need to hit the ball farther! I currently have an index of 3.8, but, everyone hits the ball farther than me. My left arm bends, plenty in the back swing. My swing bottom with my driver is a whole foot behind the ball. Help, please!  (Our apologies about the wind noise but we felt the message was so important, we wanted to share it with you anyway!)
