Question

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.

Bobby’s Answer

You bring up a really great point, Randy,

Many golfers try to save the shot with their hands, but when the moment of impact is only four ten-thousandths of a second, this motion does a lot more harm than good.

When you try to save your shot, you will separate the arms and hands rather than create a natural arc. The result is a loss in power, distance and accuracy.

Working on delivering the club into the ball will help you understand how loading the club, creating lag in the downswing and utilizing the workhorse all work together to create a proper arc in your golf swing. This will give you the feeling of letting go at impact that you have been looking for.

  1. Bobby,

    So many thanks for producing your videos, they are excellent. I was able to significantly reduce my scores and feel fabulous using those “tools.”
    I do have a question for you: When I was playing several times per week, I was a single to low double digit handicap. Unfortunately there has been an illness in the family which requires time at home and infrequent golfing. The last time out, about the 10th hole, I “lost my swing and rhythm?? It was a disaster. No doubt Mental that led to disastrous physical play results…..What can I do the minimize or prevent that next time? In speaking with friends, it appear that has also happened to them on occasions as well.
