Question

I have been pulling my shots way to the left of target. My ball placement is fairly even with my left heel. If I weaken my grip a little, I tend to push the shot to the right. I use a fairly neutral overlap grip with my swing speed of 94 mph.

Bobby’s Answer

In order to properly diagnose the problem, we must first determine whether this is a clubface or swing path issue. This is so important! When we assess our mis-hits, it is CRITICAL we understand the true source of the problem- otherwise, our corrections won’t help us (and could even make matters worse!).

Based on Robert’s comments, I believe the answer lies in release time and use of the workhorse. I explain what I mean in today’s video:

  1. In video of your swing, at start of your down swing, you you squat and your head drops at least 4 inches. Is this intentional or result of mechanics of you swing?

  2. I started occasionally yanking my drives and longer irons. What causes that and how can I correct it. I normally hit a slight draw.

  3. I have been having the same problem, I was glad too see this so the next I play I will try this. Thanks for shareing this I will let you how it goes.

  4. Hi Bobby – In your DVD videos you demonstrate building great load at the top of the backswing. Your transition from backswing to downswing is a smooth dynamic and powerful motion. Although I can get pretty decent load, my transition is more slow, static, and deliberate. When I try to transition more dynamically I lose precision and timing in the rest of my swing. Do you think a slow transition is a problem, and if so, what can I do to build the great transition tempo that you have? Thanks for your great Impact Zone system! – Brad

  5. I pull all my iron shots in a full swing and look at my divet and its going left how do i fix it?. My divet is strait on practice swings then it changes when i hit the ball?

  6. My most frequent mistake is hitting the ground behind the ball. Is there a simple fix or do I need major reconstruction?

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.
