Bobby’s Answer

Hi Ken,

I suggest the line drill. You can watch a demonstration here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6JWObdX8ykA

Let me know if it helps!



  1. I have played golf forever with a right arm that doesn’t straighten out due to bone chips from playing baseball. iI have had the chips removed (no more pain) but will never completely straighten. I have a baseball grip (can’t change it, I tried) and shoot 80’s-90’s with a natural draw from my right arm. Is there some kind of alteration I would need to be more consistent regarding ball contact, ball position as I seek more consistency.

  2. This is the incorrect youtube web address for the question posed.

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.

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.
