Bobby’s Answer

Rick,

That’s a great question, and one that we haven’t covered yet in the DVDs. The answer is actually less complicated than you might think. In fact, all you have to do is get your posture right at address. I demonstrate exactly what I mean in this video.

  1. Nice tip for a sidehill lie with the ball below your feet. But what about a sidehill lie with the ball above your feet. Also, what about a straight uphill lie or a straight downhill lie. Hitting balls on a flat practice range is nice. But when I get on the course I so often don’t have flat lies. Those are the shots that I do poorly on the most.

  2. Also, hitting balls from a nice lie on the practice range is one thing. On the golf course, I’m frequently not having such a good lie as on the practice range. What about hitting shots from bad lies, out of shallow rough or out of deep rough. Those are shots that really hurt my scores.

  3. When I’m on the course playing I take practice swings which my partners say are more complete and faster than when I take my actual swing. Any thoughts on how to make the two swings closer?

  4. Bobby could you clarify the new ball flight laws thru track man compared to how we used to curve the ball right to left and left to right. There seems to be a difference.
    Thanks

  5. You mentioned the fact that with a lie below your feet the ball will tend to cut to the right but you didn’t tell us to aim left or whatever you recommend. Does changing your spine angle at address eliminate this issue?

  6. Very helpful. I have a question. I am 87 years old, luckily still play and play pretty much my age or close to. Your dvds are great, already helping my fairway woods and iron. I have difficulty getting the hip rotation I would like. I know I am old, but still retain reasonably good flexibility. Any suggestions or exercises that might help? Love your system.

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.

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.
