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:

  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.

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?
