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!

Let’s address making a turn.

Being able to turn your hips plays a big part in getting longer distance out of your swing.

If you aren’t as flexible as you used to be, you can put your right foot back to get into a pre-turned position which will actually allow your hips to make a bigger turn in your back swing.

But I know what you’re thinking: Will it affect my swing bottom?

Well, the answer lies within the 5 Dynamics, and I explain it in detail in today’s 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?

    1. Joy,
      Good question. The concept of “Loft is Hook” applies to uneven lies as well as clubfitting, and is rarely discussed in the industry. The most drastic of the shots that need a compensation is the uphill lie with lofted clubs. The ball will definitely go left because of the concept “Loft is hook”. The lower lofted clubs on downhill lies will go more to the right.
      To better impact,
      Bobby

  4. Hi Bobby do you ever do clinics in the Northwest area? I live in Idaho THANKS! PS love to go to a class with my son one day he’s ranked fifth in Idaho in the 13yr old division

    1. Eddy,
      Closest to you this season is Steamboat Springs, Colorado July 28-29. I hope that you can make it.
      To better impact,
      Bobby

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?
