Question

Joel writes in, “I’ve been having a lot of success using the DVDs to train. But now I feel like I may be overdoing it. I feel stuck a lot. Is it possible to have too much lag?”

Bobby’s Answer

Great question, Joel! It’s never possible to have too much lag, so we can rule that out right away. What I think you need to do is get back to Dynamic #2. I explain in the video below.

  1. Can’t make a complete turn because of back issues. What can I do to still hit the ball. Not looking for distance just consistency. I tend to shank my irons

  2. Hi,

    Surely its possible to have too much lag. You have to be able to unload it. So you need to match your deceleration and your body speed with how much lag you have and how late you unload it.

  3. That’s a very poor attempt at explaining why backing your right foot up changes your swing bottom. So, what is the proper change if you do back your right foot to understand how far back you should place your ball at the beginning of the swing.

    1. Hi Mark, Bobby is currently in Naples. He teaches both at our IZG Academy there, as well as our World HQ there. Please call 239-236-5536 to schedule a lesson or register for a school. Thanks!

  4. Thanks for your series of tips! Even at 87, you’ve helped my game.
    I was satisfied that with my current goal–playing 850 golf courses in all states & 9 countries including courses where 3 of the 4 majors were played.
    With the tips from Clampett’s Corner, I’m going for 900.

Hi Bobby,

Really enjoyed your videos and all the information. I have a question about release. Do you prefer an active release using aiming point, or do you prefer a float loading action, where in effect you never try to release; it just occurs naturally?

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.
