Question

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.

Bobby’s Answer

Bob, this is a great question, and the answer is yes of course you can learn it, at any age! And the pitch shot is a great place to start. I’ve got a few tips for you in this video that will help you master the 4-inch in front divot on the pitch shot, which will pay dividends in your long game. Have a look:

  1. Better to say nothing. What a waste of time. I understand you want to sell, but to show a video that says nothing???

  2. I received nothing on that tip on how to hit down on the shot and take a divot. I need more than close your stance and move the ball back.

  3. When I look in front of the ball i can hit the ground in front of the ball. If not I sweep,what dose this mean im not doing in my swing?

  4. When should you just sweep the top of the grass and when should you take a divot? Also, how can you avoid going too deep with the divot?

  5. I’m having trouble with feel when hitting my irons. I want to feel the weight of the club. I think this will help with my consistency. I am working on a lighter grip on the club. Any tips.

  6. When are you coming to Canada Bobby or at least somewhere close (Buffalo) ? July in Naples can be pretty hot. Also with exchange on American dollar your 2 day schools can get quite pricey. Just asking….. thanks, ian

  7. Hey Bobby
    I am very hesitant to purchase lessons because I’m left-handed and it seems like everyone on golf channel we have seen you or DVD or magazine focuses on right handed players and that’s understandable, there are left-handers out there that could use some help could you address basic fundamental, setup ball position, grip, fade and draw for left-handed player

  8. I moved the ball back and closed my stance but I still don’t hit down on the ball. What do I do now?

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!)
