Question

“I’m older. I can’t get proper shoulder turn without moving my right foot back. But will this affect my swing bottom?”

Bobby’s Answer

Great question, Tom! Yes- putting the right foot back can affect swing bottom. There is a constant battle happening between Dynamic #2 (the 4 inch in front swing bottom) and Dynamic #5 (swing path). I explain in this video.

  1. Stretching and heavy club practice swinging has worked for me over the last 5 years. I am 69 and am making the same turn I was making at 40.

  2. I have trouble getting my weight to my right side and then back to the left. Do you have a tip or exercise to help me.

  3. Since I had surgery on my back I find that I have lost a lot of distance especially with
    My irons. Any advice?

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.
