Thank you! This was exactly what I needed to know.
Now that’s informative my friend! Everyone seems to tell you how to grip a club but not WHY!!!
@djtimelord Thanks for watching and subscribing. – Herman
Thanks for suggesting me this lesson Herman!
he’s right, cupping the wrists is the kiss of death. I have that problem mostly because of the interlocking grip wit h the way the pinky’s pull at each other during the back swing. I hit the ball so much further using the baseball grip but got brainwashed into conforming into the interlocking because everyone else was doing it. I’ll try the overlap and pointing the left thumb up 12 o’clock
Herman, I received a 4 lesson package with you for my birthday. I wanted to find out more about you and found this YouTube page. I must say, this video inspired me to get out to the driving range and work on the tips in your videos. What do you know? The zero loft, 100 yd duck hooks were fixed after 10 or so drives at the range. I’ve not even been think about driving it more than 100 yards in the last 6 months. Today I was hitting about 7 out of 10 balls into or over the net (~250 yds) Thanks!
Thanks for the update – kudos for following step by step. That’s where most people get in trouble. You can’t just start somewhere in the middle of the swing. Go back thru each stage of grip and setup to be sure the foundation is good, then start building in the rest of your changes one at a time in a logical sequence and pretty soon you’ve got a good golf swing. Thanks for watching and commenting.
Herman, Thanks so much I checked my grip 1st and i noticed i wasnt holding the club correct in the left hand( cross fingers and under pad) like you mentioned I went right out in the yard and fixed the grip to (neutral) and gripped like you said and just thought swing and tried to focus on left wrist flat ( as i could) and BAMMMM!!! I was hitting SOLID, STRAIGHT,PURE golf shots! Thanks so much for keeping it simple and going thru the steps to get it corrected. I cannot wait to take it to course!
This video is well done. I also cupped for a long time but recently flattened my wrist and am hitting the golf ball better than ever.
@Tuck1030 Glad I could help. Good luck as you keep practicing. – Herman
Working on this right as we speak and your video really helps!! I have always been a cupper and I can’t believe the stronger contact this has given me!! Great video series I appreciate your help!!
@secretogolf Great question. For well coordinated players I think this is fine … many Tour players are slightly cupped at the top but move into flat wrist condition on the way down and then actually strike with a slightly bowed left wrist at impact. Thanks for commenting.
@hermanwilliamsgolf Great video -what are your thoughts on firming the left up to flat just after completing the backswing
@hermanwilliamsgolf Great video -what are your thoughts on firming the left up to flat just after completing the backswing.I bet u do a mean Bill Clinton.
Great video – I bet you can do mean Bill Clinton.
Great video – I bet you can do mean Bill Clinton,might help with the ladies or not.
@gracer99 thanks for commenting – glad you’ve had success at fixing those wrists.
I struggled with a cupped right wrist (I am left handed) t the top of the backswing for years. Due to some manipulation on the downswing, I was able to hit a slight fade or push, rather than a hideous slice. A month or so ago, I bought a wrist training device and was able to cure this cupped wrist within two weeks. I now hit a straight ball or slight draw. Enjoyed your video very much. NSC
Thanks. Very useful…I hope!
Great explanation. Have been struggling with cupping my wrist despite my neutral grip.Thanks for the video.
Very good video, cleared up some stuff I wasn’t too sure on. Any chance of posting a video on how to shorten the backswing, get it more compact and connected. So many of us literally can’t stop swinging miles past parallel…and its tough to square from there!
@MBGC14 thanks. There’s a little of this info in my video about Camilo Villegas’ impact position – it covers one piece takeaway and how to get to the top. Don’t try to do too much to create the hinge or you will likely cup your wrist and get floppy at the top.
cheers for clearing this up however, you haven’t said how to hinge the wrists in the backswing?
thanks for the kind words. hope I’ve helped your golf.
Great video Herman, concise and easy to understand.
