This is an interesting tip for me. I’m a left handed golfer who does everything else right handed. My dominant arm is my right arm.
Should I, therefore be able to get the wrist hinge more easily.
Not necessarily. It just won’t feel as bad when you full hinge and rehinge.
I’m hinging enough. Is it possible to cup my wrists too much in order to achieve the necessary hinge? I’ve always thought that too much cupping will result in a fade. Should I be trying to hinge my left wrist as much as possible, while maintaining a flat left wrist at the same time, rather than a bunch of cupping? Do you have any videos that address this topic?
Yes, you can over cup. You may do this if you are holding the club too much in the fingers of the top hand.

Your wrists should not be flat. It should be slightly cupped relative to a 2 knuckle grip position.

Paul, I have had some trouble in the take/backswing with my wrist or arms. I think I am not rotating my hands in the takeaway such that my club face is in the wrong position at the top of backswing. It appears normal in your swing that your hands rotate a little bit. Can you explain if that is proper?

The position of the face is directly related to your grip. If the face is shut your grip would be strong. If open you would have a weak grip. So you need to start there. If you have a neutral grip and you see the face open or closed the top then you would be doing something roll such as hooding or rolling it open as you go back. These things are kind of rare so I would think your grip is faulty.

Hi. What should the hand grip strength be on the downswing.you say 8 out of 10 when you are fully hinged on backswing but i think my hand grip is too loose coming down. Thanks
I just posted this answer for someone else with the same issue:
Once you reach 8 out of 10 it is at this level throughout the down and through swing but your wrists are loose. You don’t want to be letting go of the club.
