Question

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!

Bobby’s Answer

Don, it sounds like your problem could be one of three things:

-path

-face

-where the ball is being struck on the clubface

However, if you dig a little deeper, I think you’ll find that your problem is swing path. And I have an incredibly simple fix for you to try- something that Lee Trevino did when he was struggling with the same thing. Watch this video to see what I’m talking about:

Comments

  1. I would have thought ball position was more the problem for pushes (to far back towards the center of stance, and for pulls (to far forward)

  2. I do exactly the same thing. My downswing is too inside out. I have been trying to correct this for 20+ yrs.

  3. After returning to the gym for years, I’ve started doing the exact same thing, but only after clubbing down. I’ll definitely try opening my stance on my next outing. Hopefully, I’ll get a chance to play this week while in Japan!

  4. I purchased the E-Series six video Impact Zone teaching Aid but I was unable to download it how can I get the E-Series downloaded to my computer?

  5. After 60 years of golf, I have helped several golfers with their push or slice. It worked for most when
    they opened their stance like even 2 inches and (for a right hander) dropped their RIGHT FOOT back
    like 2 inches. If that doesn’t work, increase both to 3 inches, etc.
    Doesn’t look like that would work, but it does, as long as you have a decent swing to begin with.

  6. Bobby

    You and your book often talk about hips as the engine of the swing, I have never heard you explain how that “engine” actually works. I have very poor hip action and have no idea how to fix my “engine”. Please help!

  7. I enjoy all your helpful suggestions but I am left handed. My question is do I simply reverse all the suggestions you make or are there some techniques unique to me?

  8. I am left handed and I try to reverse all your suggestions, but are there and techniques unique to me when listing to you?

  9. Originally over the top
    Now hitting driver very low on face
    Can’t get center hit
    No distance and very high spin rate and max distance is 150

  10. I have a hard time getting off my right side which leads to fat shots. My solution has been to keep more weight on my left side at address so my head stays steady. at 75 , my workhorse is not very flexible any more. Any suggestions? I love this game, and work hard to improve.

I need to hit the ball farther! I currently have an index of 3.8, but, everyone hits the ball farther than me. My left arm bends, plenty in the back swing. My swing bottom with my driver is a whole foot behind the ball. Help, please!  (Our apologies about the wind noise but we felt the message was so important, we wanted to share it with you anyway!)
