Not good enough to stop Bump. As Kiwi says, I'm being too ambitious out of average lies. Going for 2 or 3 pointers instead of making sure it's at least 1 or 2 points.

But the swing is only affected 3 inches behind the ball, you've still got plenty of control over your swing at that point to stop and start again. I'd recommend that over hovering as a rule

I agree.  Just got to be quicker to react.

Those players who have a finger grip in the left hand with the hands high at address and the left wrist in ulna deviation (thumb down) don't seem to have trouble hovering because the left wrist is braced.

I'll check what he said about why and get back. Have his books in my library.

"I almost always started the swing with the club held slightly above the ground. I think the habit started because I played so many shots as a kid out of fescue rough. The ball tends to sit on top of this type of grass, and grounding the club would cause the ball to roll over....." from Golf My Way.
Haven't read this book in decades, must go through it again in light of all the swing stuff in my head these days.☺

If the hybrid is being knocked off line that would suggest that you are using the wrong club.
Use a club with a shorter shaft so attack angle is coming in steeper to get thru the grass eg 7i or thereabouts




So go driver, 7i,7i, wedge, instead of driver, hybrid, putter??????

The only people that hover are chicks using public toilets.
See the 2nd post in this thread for confirmation


Thanks Bud.

You are comparing apples with oranges. I may be wrong but they look like pro golfers. Wouldn't it be more prudent to research older gentry who play off 12 - 18 handicaps and see if they hover?
That would be my thinking
