Chris Rowland: Very good. I think about him sometimes. Glad to hear he is doing well.
Chris Rowland: Great seeing your lessons online. I used to take lessons from Banks Guyton at Golf Academy. Hopefully see you again soon. Keep up the good work.
jossconz: Excellent video!
If you truly listen to this video and practice what Herman is saying you will gain flat left wrist at the top and at impact and you will improve.
lee west: Seems there is a contradiction in the takeaway on this video compared to the one piece takeaway video when to hinge the wrists in this one it is just at the thigh in the one piece I think it says keep the one piece to full extension could you please clarify.
Thanks Lee West Ayr Scotland..
Jon Castle: Thanks Herman. You are right - most instructors don't spend any time at all on the grip. They just look at your grip and say "oh, ok you like a strong grip" or something like that. Ben Hogan spent 20 whole pages on only the grip in his book - but didn't really go into the role of the right hand. How do you hold lag? How can a golfer extend fully down the target line without pronating his wrist (which is impossible if you have a strong swing) UNLESS the right hand functions as you describe! Even Hank Haney, in his book, glosses over the real function of the right hand to compress the ball and keep the clubface on line. I really appreciate the video. I do suspect that, however, - if one doesn't have the correct lower body action and the correct amount of turn through the shot - that many shots will be pushed to the right using the wrist action that you describe. I'll try it on the range - and use it as a gauge that if I'm pushing the shots to the right - it means I'm not getting my weight to the left quick enough, or not turning through the ball fully.
zhangjiazhu: Hey Herman. I watch many instruction videos, mainly from instructors in the UK. This video, is probably the most informative one. Very clear instruction and a lot of useful information. Thank you for the great work.
Harry Salm: HermanWilliams, Right Wrist Action
Ji Kim: Best online instructor in my opinion. Your backswing swing video made me into a completely different golfer.
walkintex: Thought I might share my experience. My inconsistent rounds last week sent me to searching. Here I found the most detailed description for grip and swing I have seen. Practiced each detail best I could around house for a couple of days and played 18 this morning. I found real tempo that I had lost years ago. The only shots not on line were those that I failed to release properly and they went right of target.
I found once I got to top of backswing, no more swing thoughts were needed except to throw that release. Also, I would never had tried that weak a grip without this video. Thanks, for you have given me my confidence back.
Mason Archer: I'm not sure about my specific grip, but I was at the range this morning and finally found what helped cure my slice which was what you're talking about in the video. For me, it helped to think of my release like I wanted to slap the ball at contact. Without conscious effort, using this release stopped my slice, kept my elbow in and squared the club face. Much better distance as well. Also, like you mentioned, it feels like you're going to hook it or hit it way left but so long as you keep the left arm straight you hit the ball straight. I actually hit a fade this morning doing this! Great video explaining this, it really could help fix a slice; this is coming from someone who spent all summer getting frustrated with my slice.
canefan17: What are some causes to a flat right wrist at the top?
Kevin M: This is one of the best explanations of this detail of the golf swing online. Very helpful. Thanks!
swampThaang: My right wrist is really ruining my swing, I can barely get to impact while still maintaining a delofted club. Interestingly, when I take my right hand off the club right before impact my angles look great even after impact.
Jason Reed: I feel like this is a great video for those, very much like myself, who are constantly laid off at the top. Watching this video was the first time I've been able to stay on plane to the top and not over swing.
vince guest: Right hand weak,knuckle pushing forward...trigger finger,dorsiflex to some degree or other in backswing,90* right elbow down and into ribs,weight shift,palm down..pressure and then throw right palm facing down…got it!Piece of cake.
Jeffrey Bartone: I was Herminated! By the Herminator! Thanks Mr. Williams for the lucid illustration of right hand work. Can't wait to get to my next golf shot.
Grant Hooper: this strong grip stuff needs clarified. not sure if you meant to suggest that if a weekend golfer adopts a strong grip he may flip or if you are teaching something unique here and meant that it doesnt work for what your teaching....but.... if you look up the research of kelvin miyahara, a renowed golf teacher out of hawaii and some biomechanics professor he teamed up with.... they do surveys and studies of tour swings and did like 300 on grip and relationship to clubshaft. they were surprised to find that the standard grip was not standard. but that a slightly strong 2 1/2 to 3 knuckle grip was by far the majority, with some going 3 or 4 knuckles and very few going 2 knuckles. even more revealing....they posted pictures of high speed 300 frame per second impact of each guy corresponding to their grip and found ZERO guys with a three or four knuckle grip having the clubshaft pass the hands. guys like tommy gainy, graham mcdowell, jb holmes. dustin johnson, robert garrigus were what the impact looked like for 3 and 4 knucklers. pretty much every drive holder was 3 knuckles plus... i think keegan might have been a little weaker than the rest of the drive holders. and of the roughly 20 swings that flip-rolled..... all of them were either weak grips or a combination of weak one hand and the other neutral. so im surprised to hear someone say that a strong grip causes flips. guys like ricky fowler, brian gay, daniel chopra, dj trahan, louis oosthuizen all had weaker grips.
Houls61: I struggle with a low hook with my driver. I'm going to work on this grip and it seems to me with my right hand on top like that I can really rip through the release and not worry about the snap hook. Thanks.
Donnie Warren: Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU ! I have struggled for years with overswinging, casting, flipping and coming out of my posture in my golf swing. I have tried many different things but I failed to identify the key role the right hand and trigger finger has in the swing. It wasn't until this brilliant golf instruction video that I started to look at my grip. The right hand feels weak, but I am able to really compress and trap the ball ! The divots are better, and more importantly I have stopped collapsing and flipping! If there is a "secret" in golf, it has to be in the grip!
Chef de NYC: Thanks! I'm more info ultrasound type of work. I learn most of the stuff myself online. Just only recently start looking for a school to make things "official". Hehe
