Image of item
"Top golfing instructor Jim McLean uses rare film footage of Ben Hogan to break down the greatest swing of all timeGolf legend Ben Hogan had the perfect golf swing, but how exactly it worked has long been a mystery-until now. Using footage from three never-before analyzed films of Hogan at his very best, Jim McLean analyzes the crucial motions of Hogan's entire golf swing and shows you how to integrate his mechanics into your own game. You'll study Hogan's blend of club head, club shaft, hands, ankles, knees, hops, shoulders, and head motion-a symphony of movements with an ideal sequential development of power. It's as close as you can get to teeing it up with Hogan yourself. Uses more than one hundred stills from three rare films to analyze every key detail of Hogan's perfect swing before the car accident that changed his play, something no book on Hogan has ever done Reveals the fifteen secrets of Hogan's swing, covering important topics such as the grip, the waggle, the left hip action, lateral motion, rotation and turning movements, head position, and more Draws extensively on the knowledge of Hogan's friends and competitors, many of them golfing greats themselves Written by one of Golf Digest's top five teachers , a pioneer in video analysis who also saw Hogan play first hand There have been many books on Hogan's swing, but never one, including his own, that illustrates his swing at its most perfect, and never one that shows its mechanics so clearly and completely"--Provided by publisher.
"This book looks at Hogan's swing more closely than anything has ever done, and McLean's aim is to describe clearly and concisely its key components. What's more, this book will give you the opportunity, via its rare photographs, to look at and observe Ben Hogan yourself. And along the way McLean will show you how you can integrate Hogan's mechanics into your own game. The key to this book, what makes it like no other, are the three series of film stills of Hogan at his very best in the last 1940s before his terrible car accdident and how McLean uses them to show the details and the important motions of Hogan's entire golf swing"--Provided by publisher.
