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?

Bobby,

Thanks for all the great tips! I really enjoy them, but I need your help. I’m an 8 handicap player and score okay, however, I know I save the shot with my hands and want the feeling of being able to let it go through impact. Any tips or drills to accomplish this would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Bobby,

I strike the ball on the sweet spot, most when I keep my left arm straight on the back swing. This shows me my true flexibility- or should I say lack of! And I can only turn about to the 9 o’clock, or parallel to the ground position. I’m 66 and play four or five times a week. Where does the straight-left arm fit in your impact teaching, or does it?

My best swing produces a high draw, but every round I have swings where my driver hits the ground first, causing the club to snap shut and I hit a DISASTROUS low duck-hook! What causes this drop-kick and how do I correct it?
