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?

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.

I’m pushing to the right with every full swing club in my bag. The ball flight doesn’t have much curve to it, like a slice. The ball goes straight, but to the right of my intended target. Help!

Can you help me with my aiming point for the fairway woods? I seem to be pulling or hooking, and this was not a problem before.

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.
