Wayne D. Back to Hogan: Working on the Hula Move

By Wayne | Videos: Swing Analysis

Here I come back to an idea I first had over 20 years ago watching Hogan films. I use video analysis of Mr. Hogan and myself to teach you the concepts and actions of this move.

Great stuff, Wayne! I always wondered what caused Mr. Hogan’s thighs to kind of kiss/squeeze together into the follow through. It seems that many good players have that look. I love the Hogan stuff.

Best I’ve seen you swing it.

Wayne, good video and explanation. I noticed watching Hogan that the snap in the left leg is not to a straight left leg. The left leg does not totally straighten until follow through. Right? Your work looks real good. Thank you. David K

I continue to be amazed at how athletic and dynamic Hogan’s swing was. I wonder if he realized just how athletic he was. I try to keep the hips deep and when I do its fun and I hit a good shot typically. Lately, when trying to stay deep I also stop moving laterally and have very little rotation. I guess I am concerned about losing total control of my shots so I kinda freeze. I guess when telling myself “stay deep” I do exactly that and I should be saying “slide deep” (left of the target).

Leadbetter, Foley, McClean, Harmon, Haney, Como, McCord?, Sevam1?… truth be known, pretty much everybody since Five Lessons was written, is giving you there own take on the book. When they say “I just came up with the idea”, what they mean is, “while I was reading Five Lessons and watching Hogan videos, I noticed/got completely wrong, the following…”.

Wayne, well he’s the dogs bollocks. in my opinion, but I have to agree with David W. I think you need to review what’s going on with Hogan’s left knee. You’ve only ever used one all-out driver swing to demonstrate your interpretation of “snap”. Every other face-on I’ve looked at, the leg stays very obviously bent until the club swivels over his head.

Wayne, thank you for clearing up the Ledbetter video. I’ll stick with the Defrancesco videos! David W
