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?
