Question

Golf Grip Pressure

I watched your Lag DVD, and you say you want our grip to be relaxed. But shouldn’t there be quite a bit of tension in order to produce the quantity and quality of lag you talk about?

Bobby’s Answer

Yes, your grip should be relaxed, but not too relaxed! I explain in this video.

  1. I’m new to the game and in my 2nd year of golf. I’ve been doing everything I can to be a better golfer. Not trying to be great just trying to play for fun. I can’t do that because I continue to slice my ball. I look in front of the ball and think about impact zone. Can you help me not slice my ball please and thank you

  2. You keep “the angle” by leading the downswing with the legs and lower body.
    The head should be behind the back of the ball.

  3. Your grip on THE handle as to be THE softest possible ,combined with very loose wrists .
    THE best exersise I know to train your lag is THE one promoted by ancien t golf star ,JOHNNY REVOLTA ,with THE REVOLTA FORMULA : one two three swing :it trains perfectly your hands to produce More lag .

  4. unable to watch your grip pressure dvd
    am using safari browser
    enjoy your comments, but would love to see your visuals too

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.
