Bobby’s Answer

Getting more distance in your golf game can be achieved in a few different ways. Of course, increased fitness is one way. But what we REALLY want is distance with CONTROL. And the best way to achieve that is through quantity and quality of clubhead lag. Watch the video below for a demonstration of exactly what I mean. And if you want more drills for increasing lag, click here.

    Awesome… I just discovered your system & videos @ 48 yrs old. The teachings and trainings have had an immediate impact on my overall golf performance. I only wish I could’ve discovered this much sooner @ a younger age! Thanks for creating the Impact Zone. Highly recommend it to all golfers.

  2. hi
    I am worried your system would confuse me since I am a one plane golfer…. u mention lag a lot.. Mr. Jim hardy doesn’t stress lag as it happens naturally… will this confuse me? it would be nice to be more consistent and hit it longer though… without giving up my one plane swing..

  3. If I understand the lag is very important but the hips turning must be accelerate when it comes to impact It must be coordonate Means hit turn faster at impact..no arms involved..they just follow tx

  4. Can you use the same motion for irons as well? I really struggle with hit my irons. There always very short, and either fat or thin

  5. Booby C , is the first and only instructor to get it for the average golfer , 5 point dynamics easy to grasp , if you do not follow him now you will

  6. Bobby have purchased the videos program and have been trying to use playing on the course for two weeks and my scores have gone upward 4 to 6 strokes. Is this normal or do have suggestions when taking the technical information to play a round of golf? Kinda frustrating.

  7. Bobby, really appreciate all of your videos.

    Quick question, how do you maintain lag, yet maintain a shallow angle of approach with your wedges.

  8. i work on the 20 yards and in short game alot since i am GIR-challenged

    i remain impressed by how the pros can land the ball so softly and with
    spin – i work on light grip, crisp descending, outside/in impact and do ok,
    but would like to do better

    any suggestions?

  9. Ur videos have helped me immensely. Thanks Bobby. Is it advisable to put more weight at setup on the back foot? I feel as if I can push off of my right foot more naturally and get into the slot and lag position when I do that instead of the 50/50 weight distribution.

  10. Question for Bobby-

    I’m 65 with a 7 index in the SF Bay Area I’ve always loved your style and your swing.

    I struggle with my grip strength, to the point where I am sometimes uncontrollably “regripping” during my swing, with predictably bad results. If I grip lightly, I have better lag but less clubhead feel or shot control. If I grip tightly, I have better swing feel but end up with more power pulls or high fades. Are there any good cues or drills to maintain clubhead feel with the loose grip you promote ? Thanks, and keep up the great work!

  11. How do you hit a low trajectory (punch) iron shot for example with a 5 iron? I play in a windy environment and need that shot through the bag.
    If you move the ball back from it’s normal inside the left heel position to decrease the loft, does that not alter the dynamics?
    Taking a less lofted club and hitting from the normal ball position I find adds to many variables.

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.
