Billy Freeman says:

As long as your on plane it doesn’t matter what type of swing you have. For
example: Jim Furyk and Matt Kutchar have totally different swing styles but
they are both on plane in their swings and it’s evident that they have
great golf careers going for them.

RJ Waddy says:

Outstanding Video and Instruction Herman as usual, I have enjoyed all of
your Video uploads of practice rounds and on-sight commentary as
well. @”Billy” You’re an Idiot, and obviously either a hack or shoot in the
90’s for such a Stupid comment. Of course there are a few players on the
PGA and especially the Champions Tour that have home made swings, but given
the choice they would want a swing like this one. Herman, I really
appreciate the level of detail for single digit handicappers looking to
emulate as close as possible the perfect swing sequence. Keep em coming and
“Billy” Be quite when Grown Folks are talking! 

Daniel Herrera says:

If no one tells you thank you for this analysis just remember I did. I sure
do want to look at that ten million dollar swing. Great narration and good
to see some fresh material too.

Thing of beauty! He was swinging really well at the Tour Championship! Nice
analysis

Herman Williams Golf says:

@MrDoobie834 There’s certainly a timing relationship there. Think about
landing a solid punch. You don’t want your trailing hip to fire completely
before the punch lands, and you don’t want your arm fully extended before
landing it either. With Bill Haas and most great ball strikers like Ben
Hogan, they get the right forearm very low moving into a sidearm hitting
action with right elbow typically right in front of right hip and riding it
to the ball. The hip and arm mesh & fire through it.

DASH1ful says:

I agree it is wrong to think the weight should be on the right foot at the
top. The lower back has not turned when this happens and the spine has
twisted to the right from the top of the body. Bill’s right leg position is
proof of his good foot-work and flexibility. Would like to see him flex his
right arm more though.

Herman Williams Golf says:

@danason20501 Thanks for the “thanks.” 🙂

Curtis Walton says:

Thanks Herman! I thought I noticed the same thing but defer to your eye for
validation as to why he was hitting to the right on a few shots late. I
wanted to ask does a lot of the power generated come from the relationship
of the right hip and hands at contact? It seems like my most compressed
shots come when i have this feeling at impact. Thanks again another great
review for those of us who have been totally HERMA NIZED 🙂

P SMITH says:

Dear Herman Been looking at your videos and picking out some useful moves
but I’ve been using the PPGS vertical swing that Don Trahan advocates. But
I’m still uncertain about whether its a gimmick or not. Would you be able
to do an analysis of his (or his son DJ Trahan) swing? I’d be intrigued to
see how someone like yourself would dissect it.

Matt W says:

One thing that I’ve recently realized is that the torque of the dowswing
actually shifts the load to the left foot, just like applying torque to the
wheels of your car during braking shifts the load of a car towards the
front. The dowswing torque actually starts occurring before the club
changes direction; therefore the weight shift starts before this point. But
like Herman said, Bill seems to get a bit too much weight on his left side.
Perhaps starting with more weight on his right would help.

P SMITH says:

Could you do a review of Don Trahan’s golf swing please – unsure whether my
previous comment got posted

brad stecklein says:

not sure i would recommend much of this swing to anyone. Bill is a world
class athlete with the flexibility of a contortionist. but most people
would struggle to work with that straight right knee, across the line
position at the top of his swing, and overall loss of shape. i think even
he struggles with consistency because of these issues. but great talent and
enjoyable video!

Herman Williams Golf says:

Many players will, but this just goes to show you there is often more than
one way to be successful with a golf swing. The “stack and tilt” players
come to mind as they don’t really do any shifting into the back leg on
backswings. Players with flatter swings and rotary trunk turns like a Matt
Kuchar generally won’t shift much into back leg either. This actually keeps
it simple to drive back into left side on forward swing. I do think Bill
sometimes gets too far forward on downswings though.

tennisguy96 says:

aren’t you supposed to keep your weight on ur back leg before the
downswing? Because Bill here is really on his front foot right at the top
of his upswing.
