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.

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.
