    Hi Bobby,
    Here are the questions I have (I assure you I will have more as I review your other DVDs):
    Q1. In your Drill DVD you wanted us to hold the driver at the other hand and practise the swing three different ways. The first two were withe the right hand only (for RH players). Would not that trein/make the right hand dominant. I ususually hold club very lightly with right hand.
    ( I got to go as lunch time over)

    I've gotten your short and putting dvd. I haven't had a chance to go out and use your chipping and pitching methods in an actual game yet, but in practice I feel a lot more confident very close in to the green. I do have a few general questions. What are the general distances when pitching at the 8: o'clock, 9: o'clock and 11: O'clock positions with the sand and pitching wedge? I know everyone will be slightly different, but I wanted some general parameters. What I am trying to get to is this: from what distance(s) should one use a full swing with the sand wedge or pitching wedge vs. the arms only method that you are teaching in the dvd. By way of background, I am 55 years old, 5'5'' with a 30+ handicap. I started a little bit late in life, 7 years ago. I am trying to catch up.

    Hello Bobby

    I recently got my hands on a used Cleveland Driver with a stiff shaff
    and a 8.5 degree loft. Although I have previously used a Cleveland Launcher with a regular shaft and 9.5 degree loft I couldn't pass up the deal on the used club and was interested in seeing if I could change my ball trajectory with the decrease in loft. I have only used it a couple of times to date but am constantly slicing the ball something I never did with the regular shaft and 9.5 degree loft. I know in your tapes you indicate the higher lofted driver the better especially for the average golfer but I was wondering if you could give me some advice on what to change (grip/stance) to eliminate this open clubface at impact. I probably don't have the swing speed to hit a stiff shaft but a couple of times I was really able to nail it and hit it farther than the old Cleveland Driver. Thanks in advance for your input.

Add 12 Specialty Shots to your Golf Game!

by Bobby_Eldridge on 05-19-2010 at 06:13 PM
How many Strokes could you Cut off your scores if you could hit the ball high, low, left, or right at will?

How about draws or fades? Or out of deep rough or off hard pan lies? Do windy conditions hurt your scores? These are conditions that we have all faced on the course. They're part of the game, and they're part of what makes golf so tough... and so incredibly satisfying when we can navigate the course effectively. To get around the course effectively though, you'll need to have

Tip #2 Deep Rough

by Bobby_Eldridge on 05-19-2010 at 06:08 PM
The Trouble Shots DVD PurePoint Golf

I believe there are three reasons why amateur golfers struggle out of deep rough. The number one reason is because professional golfers play golf from the golf ball to the green and amateur golfers play golf from the green back to the golf ball.



Professional golfers look at the lie, their stance, wind, yardage and a few other considerations. Amateur golfers look

Tip #1 Uneven Lie-Ball going downhill

by Bobby_Eldridge on 05-19-2010 at 06:06 PM
When you stop to think about what area of your golf game you should work on you don't often think about the different trouble shots. You spend time at the practice facility working on your full swing and you might spend some time on your putting. However you rarely think about uneven lies, flop shots, deep rough or punch shots.

I have put together some valuable information on two Trouble Shots that I know will play a big role in you lowering your handicap.

Pitching Lesson 2

by Bobby_Eldridge on 05-19-2010 at 06:00 PM
There is only one component in the pitching follow through that we teach. Most golfers think that you need to make a long follow through when pitching the golf ball. However, our follow through process in pitching is unique just like the setup and backswing processes we teach. We recommend a low follow through because it forces the ball in air with loft. This also will prohibit you from trying to "scoop" the ball. Golf is a game of opposites. If you try to "scoop" the ball with a long follow through,

Pitching Lesson 1

by Bobby_Eldridge on 05-19-2010 at 05:58 PM
Just like our setup, the backswing method and mechanics that we teach are unique to PurePoint Golf. We teach 3 different backswing lengths that you should master. This will be your method of distance control. If you have three wedges in your bag, then you technically have 9 pitching distances and lofts to work with simply by mastering 3 backswing lengths (3 wedges X 3 backswing lengths = 9 distances).

In conjunction with the automatic pitching setup that we teach, these backswing
