Question

I have a four-inch-in-front swing bottom, but I still take small divots. Help!

Bobby’s Answer

Great question, Mark. And the short answer is- to eliminate small divots, you’ve got to work on getting into the ground. Part of that is activating the workhorse. See what I mean in today’s video.

  1. Ok, I’m 74 yrs young. My problem lately (I’ll just use my 5 iron as an example) hitting 150 yds I am finding that I pull my shot way left of target. My ball placement is fairly even with my left heel and I’m hitting Callaway X22 irons with graphite, senior shafts. If I weaken my grip a little I tend push the shot to the right. I use a fairly neutral overlap grip and my swing speed is 94 mph according to my Golf Buddy. I play at least twice a week with a 12.7 hdcp as of 10/01/2016

  2. Winter is coming soon in Canada. How can I practice the forward swing bottom and taking a divot indoors on mats?

  3. Sorry, but I just don’t think there is a correct size for a divot. What difference does it make as long as you hit it out of the sweet spot with an attack angle that you like?

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.
