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!

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.

I’m pushing to the right with every full swing club in my bag. The ball flight doesn’t have much curve to it, like a slice. The ball goes straight, but to the right of my intended target. Help!

Can you help me with my aiming point for the fairway woods? I seem to be pulling or hooking, and this was not a problem before.

I have been pulling my shots way to the left of target. My ball placement is fairly even with my left heel. If I weaken my grip a little, I tend to push the shot to the right. I use a fairly neutral overlap grip with my swing speed of 94 mph.
