In 5 Lessons didnt Hogant quote he wished he had 3 right hands. Is it because his right hand was for superior to his left or that the right played a much more crucial component of the golf swing? Body this body that, a turn and a swoosh, we all know golf is a handsy game.

    IMO, Hogan wasn't talking about the role of the right hand, he was talking about the importance of the position of the left wrist at impact.



    That comment is from the first paragraph on page 101 in 5L, where Hogan in BOLD letters is describing the position of the left wrist and hand at impact.



    "The back of the left hand is facing the target and the wrist bone is definitely raised." The point he is making is when the left wrist in that position, the left

    hand will not slow down the clubhead through impact…AND, with that wrist position, the right hand cannot overpower the left and twist the club over. As

    he put it…"It can't."



    Hogan considered that left wrist position to be so solid and stabilizing that as far as applying power goes, he wished he had the power of three right hands.

    Or he could have meant exactly what he said. We don't hit from ahead, we hit from behind. The lead hand is the backhand, and the opposite hand is the forehand- but those two conditions are a combined effect from the process.

    I agree. He is creating proper impact conditions and pressuring the shaft correctly. More right hand through contact equals more power. I like this new video by Monte

    Best explanation I've ever read of that concept. I agree. It makes sense. Thank you. I just learned something.

    If you use the right hand correctly you can hit the ball as hard as you want with it and thus hit the ball farther and more accurately. Much has been written about how golf is a left sided game for a right hander....Hogan was disspelling this as a myth. The key is to do it correctly. That's why Hogan wrote 5 Lessons...his attempt at telling you how to do it correctly.
