    I’ve watched almost every video posted about Hogan and I will have to
    congratulate you and state that you are the only person that is dead on
    when explaining “one” of the many secrets that Mr. Hogan did. Of course
    this move is easier said then done but when done correctly (combined with a
    rotational swing), it is extremely powerful and accurate. I went from 270
    on the driver spraying it everywhere to 300+ with the feelings described in
    the 5 fundamentals. Again, well said and great job.

  2. John Webb says:

    Going from memory I think Mr. Hogan made a statement in the book that the
    hands do nothing on the downswing until they were about hip high. This
    would explain the supination move. What always confused me was why such the
    late move? His swing was so fast that I was sure that the supination was a
    result of a lower body move that made the supination happen automatically.
    To think that he could do it on purpose so late in the swing is baffling. I
    guess that’s why DJ just does it at the top 🙂

    John Webb, Hogan made the move late early in his career. Then he cupped the
    left wrist at the top and made part of the move during the first half of
    the downswing and finishing it off later. Then he firmed up the left wrist
    at the top which allowed for a more continuous move. Hogan said later in
    his career that you can start it from the top and continue it through

    great video. I am working this supination recently but I don’t know when
    should I make this supination movement. Top of the backswing? or waist high?

  5. eagolfpro says:

    JuliusJueli, When a golfer supinations is dependent on his or her
    particular technique. In general I find a good place to start is after your
    transition is completed and you have aligned the stroke in your slot.
    Typically doing it down at waist-high is too late, although some golfers
    will do it at that point. Also some golfers will start it in the
    transition. It also has to dowith how swiftly or gradually the motion is
    performed. Swifter=later and Gradual=sooner

    come on…get a mic!…the wind makes it impossible to listen to!..and I
    WANT to listen to you.

  7. Diego Diaz says:

    I really have to say, I thought this was going to be another miss justified
    explanation on Hogan. But this fella has hot it SPOT on !!! well done Sir !!

  8. Diego Diaz says:

    Got it !!

  9. Kevin M says:

    Good analysis and description. I think you are spot-on about Hogan’s
    timing. I think his ‘secret’ move of the slight cup was a ‘prep’ move to
    cue the ‘opposite’ bowing motion, but also to delay it until he was in the
    hip slot then he could apply his ‘3 right hands’ without worrying about
    shutting the face early. BTW, on another Hogan swing element, his ‘elbows
    drill’ video is an exact model of the ‘old Scottish’ pronation technique as
    described in a Golf Illustrated article by David Hunter.

    Good info dreadfully produced

  11. Doug Hansen says:

    Did he have a wind sock?

  12. bizallin says:

    it’s not being done right,sorry

  13. eagolfpro says:

    bizallin, it is easy to just spit out a sentence saying that something
    isn’t being done right, however it takes some thoughtfullness to elaborate
    why you think that is the case. If you care to discuss it intellectually I
    would be happy. If you do not, then sorry for wasting our time.

  14. François Guimond says:

    wow!! So clear! Well said!

  15. jamesojackson1 says:

    THis is the best video explanation of Hogan’s supination move that I have
    ever watched. 5 stars

  16. Chris Pearson says:

    I’m grateful for this video. For just about a year now, I’ve only thought
    of supination as it relates to the right wrist and forearm.

    As a result, I often end up in the exact position shown here, with the club
    face severely open at impact.

    I’m skeptical as to whether or not I can pull off the left arm supination
    with any degree of consistency, but at least now I know what to work on to
    get this style of swing to work.

    • eagolfpro says:

      if the face is open the the left wist needs to go into more flexion or bow.
      Some people need to get the left wrist set stronger in the backswing, or at
      the top and then get the right wrist action in the transition or downswing.

  17. John Glover says:

    If you were able to duplicate Hogan’s supination of the left wrist at
    impact, then that speaks volumes about your hand and eye coordination EA.
    Without a doubt one of the most difficult moves in golf to execute

    • eagolfpro says:

      I would say that things get more simple when you really understand it and
      how it feels and when you can eliminate the illusions that get in the way
      of doing it properly. It is definitely easier for players that are
      ambidextrous or left handed playing right handed. Additionally I have
      worked with many player can need to perform the wrist action at the top of
      the backswing, or early in the transition instead of during the downswing
      as Hogan did. I work with a few Tour Professionals that simply can’t do it
      in the down swing and a few that can only do it late in the downswing, and
      some that feel it more in the transition. Lastly, the key isn’t necessarily
      to do it like Hogan, as far as each individual golfer is concerned. The key
      is to understand what purpose if being served in each hand and wrist action
      and then learning to find out how the individual satisfies that purpose.
