One thought on “Bob’s Living Golf Book – September 2020 Edition”

  1. Great work, Bob! I especially like these tips: A2: making sure to get the club face square to the target line (slight turndown of the left hand on the takeaway required for right-handed golfers, but not well known to lots of golfers);

    C4: this is a bit tricky. If one stands in a relaxed position with hands hanging down, there’ll typically be a bit of a bend in the arms at the elbow. We see pros have, mostly, a “straight” left arm. Jack Nicklaus comes to mind. Right before his takeaway, he’d “straighten” his left arm; lessening the relaxation, but not being totally rigid;

    F5: Yes, we can’t “baby” the short putts. These have to be stroked firmly — with commitment;

    G2: Yes, we need to take enough club to “get there.” Often, we amateurs under-club because seldom do we hit our best shot, right on the sweet spot. It’s likely to be a bit less than sweet;

    H11a: Good point — that distance is a by-product of good contact — and that accuracy is what we really need, more than we need distance. But distance is important, and we all want it.

    I’m sure I speak for lots of readers in saying we appreciate all the work you put into the book — including the helpful updates. Thanks!
