Question

I’m confused how to hit a fade. Do I have to change my swing bottom or aiming point?

Bobby’s Answer

Great question, Walter. And the answer is- no, you don’t need to change you swing bottom or your aiming point. But, you do have to rotate dynamic #5, and you also need to understand the relationship between path and clubface. I explain and demonstrate in today’s video.

  1. Bobby… having a shot tracker would really enhance the learning… when you hit that shot… couldn’t see the ball… sometimes the verbiage alone isn’t enough… THANKS FOR ALL YOU DO FOR US

  2. John Young’s comment is right on target. A tracking system would greatly enhance not only the validity of your comments and teachings but also gives the student a visual of the proper flight of a fade. I never believed a fade is just a small slice, just as a draw is not the same as a snap hook. Thanks for all your pointers.

  3. Hey Bobby,
    I’ve been fighting this for a while but can’t seem to rectify hitting all my clubs on the toe. I usually compensate on the driver and other woods by addressing the ball a bit toward the heel of the club pre-swing which seems to work sometimes but I really don’t want to do this on the irons for fear of a shank. Any help?
    Thanks
    Mike

  4. I have a question regarding my driver. 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 hit a disastrous low hook. What causes this “drop-kick”, and how do I correct it?

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?
