Question

“How do you keep the ball from pulling left on the hook lies? On my course, we have a lot of side-hill lies, and they drive me crazy!”

Bobby’s Answer

This is a great question, Bill. The important thing to remember is that the more loft there is on the club, the more the ball is going to hook. And, what’s more, there is a big different between hook and pull. In the case of the side-hill lie, I don’t fight it- I just play it. I’ll show you what I mean…

  1. Hi Bobby Really look forward to all
    Your Tips!!!
    Just started a couple years ago…sidehill lies have been a problem never knowing how to play them! I’ll give the lower loft a try😎 Also how would you play the downhill lie? Thanks!! Warren, Fort Worth Texas

  2. Hi Bobby. i have a question regarding the aiming point technique. have been a huge advocate of impact zone golf for the past year. I am a scratch golfer and have seen tremendous improvement in my consistency since moving my swing bottom forward. since reading and following Impact Zone i took it a step further and came across some footage of your coach ben doyle that i found very interesting. i have struggled a bit with the aiming point concept with my long irons and woods and after reading some exerps from the Golfing Machine i am a bit confused. In The Golfing Machine the aiming point seems to be sometimes directed at that ball and sometimes behind???? any clarification would be appreciated. thanks

  3. Hi Bobby,

    Is there a drill you have in helping to learn the correct movements of the workhorse. Something that maybe you can practice at home to be able to repeat it correctly. I know from your DVDs that this is the one thing that is essential to everything in your teaching and any help you can share in this aspect would be great.

You talked about your successful game when you were young, then instructors told you that you would have to change your swing to get better, but you didn’t get better. Why didn’t you go back to your old apparent instinctive swing that helped you play so well?

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?
