Question

Spinning the hips out

Bobby’s Answer

When I hear golfers talk about turning their hips during the downswing to hit the ball,  I hear and see EXACTLY that. 

The hips are the workhorse in our golf swing.  To use the workhorse properly, the hips will SLIDE slightly closer to the target, and then turn.  Most of the time I see golfers trying to spin as fast as they can, leading to a loss of Dynamic #4 and #5.  Use the workhorse…slide and turn…no spinning!

I need to hit the ball farther! I currently have an index of 3.8, but, everyone hits the ball farther than me. My left arm bends, plenty in the back swing. My swing bottom with my driver is a whole foot behind the ball. Help, please!  (Our apologies about the wind noise but we felt the message was so important, we wanted to share it with you anyway!)
