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?

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?
