Bobby’s Answer

Tom, this is a great question. In fact, there are many misconceptions about this very subject. I’ll tell you what I think release is, and when you do it- in today’s video.

    1. Everyone watching these tips is not an “advanced” player. If the tip doesn’t apply to you, ignore it and move on. There is no reason to make snide comments.

  3. Bobby , There’s no way you can delay the release with the left wrist ,the release happens by itself ,the wrists are loose ,and it’s only because you rotate the hips fast that the release is delayed

  4. BOBBY, I FIND YOU TO BE ONE OF THE BEST INSTRUCTORS I HAVE WATCHED, BUT YOUR MANY YEARS INSTRUCTING ARE PALE TO WHAT THEY COULD BE SHOULD YOU SLOW DOWN THE SPEED OF YOUR NICE SHOTS SO THAT GOLFERS SUCH AS I COULD STUDY WHAT YOU ARE SAYING AS WE WATCH FOR THE DEMONSTRATION AS YOU SWING. WHILE YOU SAY THAT THE SHOT IS NICE, WOULD IT BE EVEN NICER IF WE COULD ACTUALLY SEE WHY IT IS SO?

  5. Hi Bobby, I think i am having trouble with the transition. In my DS i hold the lag < pretty good. What i do not feel is speed of the club and weight of the club. My ball flight is straight and low. I am 82 so my distance is not present ( Driver goes on avg 175 yds.) . How can i whip the club thru the hittingzone?

    Thank You
    Lee

  6. Jack Nicklaus always maintained that he released the club immediately once he got the club 2 the top.

  7. Hello Bobby, I am a brand new Impact Zone member. Can you please explain how the principles of the impact zone apply to hitting the driver?
    Thank you,
    Jim

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.
