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. I am trying to open Bobby answer to Cowboy Bob Bilotta, Jan 7, 2017 but it won’t open it by just clicking on
      it. How can I review that? I am a new Impact Zone Alumni, Tom Obrien.

    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

So Bobby, why not start the swing in the impact position? It seems to me that would simplify the ability to be there at impact.

I am having difficulty hitting the ball first and taking a reasonable divot with my 5 hybrid through pitching wedge. Where should ball position be at relative to position of feet and distance of ball from feet. Also, should I be focusing on the back of the ball?
