Try to eat Golfing Video Score: four / 5

@jruleiv1 I’m not sure where we disagree unless you didn’t watch the video. I notice you left the same comment elsewhere on YouTube. In fact I mention that exact description in several other videos & would think most people would infer that here when I stated don’t attempt to start down by turning or clearing the body. Most amateurs & many pros will definitely do best by keeping the back to target as arms drop (during the shifting phase mentioned here) followed by clearing once arms are slotted.
How about keeping your back to the target and swinging your arms down towards the ball? Over the top is caused by shoulder rotating too quickly in the downswing and golfers trying to use their body too much to hit the ball. Thanks Herman! You have once again proven that PGA means nothing when it comes to being a teacher! Don’t get Hermanized….it could confuse you more than you already are!
@gmonkey808 One change at a time. The ball needs 3 things for a quality shot … path, face and angle of descent. This video only deals with one of them. If you are hitting from the inside for the first time, it may be overdone or may have the effect of delaying the clubface or holding it open. It’s still worth the effort to fix the path for good and never go back to over-the-top. Check my video on “how to stop blocking golf shots.” Thanks for commenting.
Looks to me as though he is just going right now instead of left.
On the slow motion its clearly heading at the tree and its going to need a big lot of draw to get back to target which i dont think it will.
Its not as simple as just swinging from the inside or we would all be able to do it.
Whats missing herman???? What is the secret of hitting stright from the inside??
@tank5335. Check out Herman’s video about casting. It might be that you’re unhinging your wrist too soon, which can cause the club head to drop and hit behind the ball. Good luck!
@dinorell You nailed it!!! Good luck. – Herman
I always have the feeling of making the bump towards the shortstop because I rotate my upper body first like your student thus making my OTT move.
OK, align yourself and club face at the pitcher. After backswing, make a bump towards the second baseman, drop that elbow and let er go. Correct?
thanks, mike in memphis
@MrDoobie834 Thanks for the compliment and congratulations on a good round.
i am envious of the gentleman student. Mr Williams corrected my grip and now this move. Yes it gave me trouble last weekend pulling line drives left big time. Then I reviewed this. Went to the driving range on Monday (labor day) to work on it before my round. OMG Herman is a master. I was 2 over after 15 hitting all but one fairway. Okay after that…had some water problems and mental errors…next lesson. HA! envious of gentleman student because he has direct access to a Herman in person
@yengwenli You may be dropping in the slot correctly then spinning your hips quickly which still throws your hands outward too much just before impact. Or you may be unhinging your wrists outward which throws the neck of club out into ball. Check my video on how to stop shanking and make sure your grip is correct so your right palm is facing downward when you get approximately waist-high on downswing. This should continue to press the shaft down and toward target not out into hosel of club
Very helpful video thank you. Since i start losing my grip and learn turning more my hip initiate downswing I have been hving slice problem/outside in swing. However if I try to drop club down the slot, I would tend to shank by holding on wrist hinge. I think is something about my release, any help?
@calebgabby I m like yourself. Lots of lessons but still coming over the top. Driving me completely mad now as I’m playing off 12 and slicing and pulling irons. Read books and watched DVDs. Head full of shit. Have a good pro but he tells me to use the box drill which is making shit of my clubs. This fella is good. Bump and drop…………….simple.
one of the best OTT vids out there on youtube
This video is so great you have no idea!!! i struggled with over the top so much i almost quit golf but when i saw this it gave me a great mental picture of what i need to do. now my question is how do i avoind coming too far inside and hitting it fat? i corrected the over the top move but now some times hit it fat becuase i drop too far inside… any ideas?
Well sorry Herman,for the way i spelt your name and I missed the part where you mention the audio is not that good……Sorry for speaking on this before knowing:(
Mr Herminized lol…… nice to see your videos again (2010 tigers return)
Well i have wondered what the “slot” is this is great.
Could you do something about the audio on all this….. very inconsistant,first part and near the end is so loud, I almost have to turn the volume down:(
@impression010 Fantastic – thanks for commenting.
thank you. you just cured my slice. i knew i was coming over the top. but i dint know why. now i do.
@lid1977 awesome – glad I could help. – Herman
thanks mate really helped me out this vid, it took me couple of weeks to get the hang of it, i usually go round in mid 80’s and last week shot a 75 and 81 Cheers mate
@calebgabby Wow – I’m humbled. Thanks for favoriting and keep working on your game. It will test you like no other, but there’s no feeling like it when you figure it out. Try to understand your style and habit tendencies and then focus on information geared in that direction. Mirrors, video and lots of slow motion practice helps. Keep watching my vids and good luck!!! – Herman
@favcity Hey favcity, thanks for compliment.
Thanks for faithfully illustrating a key TGM concept with so much clarity and brevity!
“Hermanized!” LOL! Nice
@MrSillybilly20 Definitely. Normally the toe will be kicked out at approx 30 – 45 degree angle. See my “flat wrist video” and it will show you how the clubface should match the back of your hand and arm at top of backswing. If you get that fixed then you may want to check the video on “casting” followed by the video “release the club like a pro.” Good luck and let me know how you do. – Herman
