Question

Spinning the hips out

Bo Green

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 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.
