Makes total sense I'll give it a try.

William Knutson says:

I finally remembered the other golfer who had a very pronounced "lay off" of the club. Lee Trevino did this also. This laying off of the clubhead promotes the heal to be the leading edge at contact….

William Knutson says:

I've been studying hogans swing and have noticed this "laying off" of the club on numerous videos. Another difference I see with hogan is the very sharp angle in his wrists at the top of the backswing, between the club shaft and his left arm, its much sharper with hogan. The left thumb is very important in "hinging" the wrists properly. Finally, one thing about hogan most don't know is he was always squeezing a tennis ball or using one of those spring loaded hand strengthener devices, to strengthen his hands and forearms.

Too complicated for the average golfer.
Besides, I have watched many old film lessons with Ben Hogan himself and he doesn't talk about this.
He keeps the swing simple!

Hello Tom.
Do you give online lessons where the student sends you a video and you do analysis?
I live outside the US.

deef mcstrabe says:

Tom, Might the cupped left wrist be flattened in the "laying off" by a pulling down of the right wrist rather than pushing down on the left wrist?. That would be consistent with a right-handed baseball pitcher who creates torque in the right wrist during the wind-up and releases that torque during the delivery.

Brett Karst says:

Good video to illustrate how to lay off the club….

Janice Kogut says:

Interesting. THis is what my swing has changed to recently and I'm playing better golf now. I have an atypical laid off backswing but bowed wrist coming thru, it works for me

Ohm I. Gaad says:

All you need to know is the club face should be square on impact, hands in front of the ball, head behind it. How you get to that point doesn't matter.

Don Geo says:

Modern players seem to have a bowed left wrist not a cupped. Bowed works for me and keeps me from hitting left (rt handed)
