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 HERMANIZED ­čÖé

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

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.

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!

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.

Thanks for the “thanks.”´╗┐ ­čÖé

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.

hermanwilliamsgolf 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.

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.
