I know what you're thinking. How can a straight drive bounce to the right instead of straight? Well, it is possible but if you're truly hitting the ball straight it's not likely.
Samuel Vasquez is convinced that his straight drives are bouncing to the right once they hit the fairway. This leads me to believe that there must be some sort of left to right spin on his ball. Regardless, I'm going to provide a few instances where a straight ball could actually bounce to the right or left when it hits the ground. I'm also going to share what I believe is happening during Sam's swing that is probably causing his ball to react the way it is.
I am 65 years old and have been using your swing for about 2 years. It took me over a year to master your swing (it's not perfect yet but I am getting there). Between your videos that I purchased and the daily videos you send out, my swing has improved. I am starting to hit the ball down the middle constantly. I only have one problem that I hope you can help me with. When I hit the ball I can see it go straight but when it hits the ground the ball bounces to the right. So I am losing distance. Can you help me solve this problem?
If Sam plays at the same course every time, it's possible that the fairways are sloped a certain way. This could be the natural lay of the land or the way the drainage system was designed to keep the fairways safe from flooding. Either way, it could make the ball bounce a certain way when it hits the ground.
There are more likely reasons why Sam is seeing his ball bounce to the right when it lands, all of which I go over in today's video. This is a good reminder that you should always get a friend to watch you swing. He or she may see something that you're not. In this case, Sam may believe that he's hitting the ball straight but it might actually have a very slight fade to it. Check out the video to see why this can happen.
