Ben Hogan is legendary, intriguing, and mysterious. It's a combination that has contributed to Hogan being the most interesting golfer of all time. Aside from his amazing competitive record, his secretive and solitary personality provoke wonder and devotion among thousands of golfers worldwide who attempt to unlock Hogan's secret code of how to swing a golf club and strike a golf ball. Hogan himself has fueled this intrigue, mainly because he openly declared that he had a "secret," one that he never publicly revealed. Many top professionals have speculated on what they thought Hogan's secret might be, but until now those speculations were not supported by any revelations from Hogan himself. Now, author Larry Miller, who was mentored by Tommy Bolt, who in turn was one of Hogan's protégés, shares Hogan's secret as he learned it. This secret fundamental, which Miller breaks down into two aspects and explains with the aid of full-color photography and illustrations, will help the average golfer implement Hogan's teachings to benefit his or her game.

In 1954, Ben Hogan stated in the serialized lessons he wrote for Life magazine that he had “a secret.” He challenged the world to find it by stating "It is easy to see if I tell you where to look." He then wrote his legendary instructional book, Five Lessons, and created a remarkable golf swing puzzle, but somehow one important piece of information was missing. Golf expert after golf expert have attempted to define this secret over the years, serving to compile a rather lengthy list of what they think the secret is but never quite explaining how it's done. Enter Ben Hogan's Magical Device, a revealing book which intends to finally explain, in universally understandable terms, that long-lost secret to Hogan's swing. As a lifelong golfer with 50+ years of experience, two degrees in Physical Education and a Doctorate in History, author Ted Hunt became determined to track down Hogan’s secret himself. He reviewed most of the literature concerning Hogan and interviewed many professionals (including Jack Nicklaus) and the result of his research produced a clearer understanding of the source of the confusion concerning Hogan’s secret. An hypothesis was conceived and tested, and Hunt was pleased to discover that his analysis stood up to critical examination. But perhaps more importantly, his golf responded with more accuracy and lower scores, which included shooting his age (79) several times within weeks of embracing the secret. Complete with 100 photos/illustrations and a foreword by movie star Sean Connery, Ben Hogan's Magical Device gives an easy-to-follow explanation of Hogan’s secret, where it comes from, and the foundations which support its successful execution. Interspersed throughout the text are stories from professional acquaintances who spoke with Hunt about their times with Mr. Hogan.

Ben Hogan's former ball shagger recounts firsthand stories of the golf legend—andreveals, for the first time, Hogan's Swing Secret, a source of mystery to golfers for more than fifty years. Ben Hogan's pro golf record is legendary. A four-time PGA Player of the Year, he celebrated sixty-three tournament wins and became known as a man of few words and fewer close friends. Most of what we know about Hogan has been based on myth and speculation. Until now. In the 1960s, though Hogan's competitive career was over, he kept the practice habits that made him famous and remade modern competitive golf. He hired seventeen-year-old Jody Vasquez to help. Each day, after driving to a remote part of the course at Shady Oaks Country Club, Hogan would spend hours hitting balls and Vasquez would retrieve them. There, and over the course of their twenty-year friendship, Hogan taught Jody the mechanics of his famous swing and shared his thoughts on playing, practicing, and course management—unknowingly revealing much about his character, values, and beliefs, and the events that shaped them. In Afternoons with Mr. Hogan, Jody Vasquez shares dozens of stories about Hogan, from the way he practiced, selected his clubs, and interacted with other star players to his little-known humor and generosity. Combining the gentle insight of Tom Kite's A Fairway to Heaven (which recalls Kite's golf education under Harvey Penick) with the sage perspective of Penick's own Little Red Book, Vasquez's tribute is funny, poignant, and full of advice for golfers of all levels.

Ben Hogan made hitting a golf ball look easy, and the results spoke for themselves. But Hogan’s “swing system” is as complex as a spider’s web; the variables and connections are never-ending. In Ben Hogan’s Tips for Weekend Golfers, Hunt presents a selection of simple but valuable tips, based on the legendary golfer’s secret to a competitive golf swing. The book is intended for the recreational golfer, not the tournament player who has unlimited time to practice. It distills Hogan’s observations concerning the vital components of a golf swing—one at a time—and presents them as simply as possible. Each tip is illustrated with a series of photographs, which clearly show the proper grip, stance, backswing, and follow-through. The author addresses these important golfing concepts: • What powers the takeaway? • When and how do the wrists hinge? • What is your first move down from the top of the backswing? • What is the action of the back knee? • When does the lead knee straighten? • How do you connect the arms to the torso? • How do you maximize power through proper timing in the contact zone? • What are the two benefits of “hovering” the putter and the driver? • How can fifteen minutes a day at your home significantly improve 55 percent of your game? In Ben Hogan’s Tips for Weekend Golfers, Ted Hunt makes the intricate Hogan system accessible and presents it in a way that “the Hawk” himself might have if he were instructing a club member out on the course.

Ben Hogan is the most enduring icon in golf and his swing is the most studied athletic action in the history of sport. In 1946, after twenty-three years of relentless practice and continual experimentation, Hogan discovered a Secret that transformed him into the greatest ball striker of all time. Hogan's confidence in the Secret led him to state in his ground-breaking book Five Lessons: The Modern Fundamentals of Golf that any reasonably coordinated golfer could break eighty. When asked if the Secret was there in the book, he said that it was there and that it was easy to locate if told where to look. But Mr. Hogan never did tell.

In 1997, the Master passed away and the Secret was lost forever. This book decrypts Hogan's complex web of clues and decoys to resurrect the Secret in its brilliant entirety. This book reveals a startling fact about human bio-mechanics that has never been published before in any medical or golf journal.

An accomplished LPGA player recalls her days as an unlikely student of a living legend and the priceless lessons he taught her. As a collegiate golfer in the 1980s, rising star Kris Tschetter was fortunate enough to gain membership at Shady Oaks, one of the best courses in Texas, where Ben Hogan was a member. There was an unwritten rule at the club: Don't bother Mr. Hogan. But when the master of the game observed Tschetter's constant presence on the driving range, he offered to help her with her swing. And a unique friendship began. Despite Hogan's enigmatic reputation, Tschetter reveals a very different side to golf's elder statesman. On the links, he began to recall some of his fondest memories, telling his new student about his fifty-year romance with his wife, Valerie, and sharing other poignant details about his life. After Tschetter turned pro, Hogan came out to watch her play at Fort Worth's Colonial Country Club-the last professional round he watched in person. Mr. Hogan, the Man I Knew is a stirring memoir of a champion's final chapter and a friendship between two very different people who shared the same passion.

Consciously learn the hand action of the golf swing then unconsciously apply this hand action within the structure of turning shoulders and hips during the golf swing. This book is written from the perspective that correct hand action is crucial to developing a well coordinated, fault-free golf swing. Moe Norman and me share the opinion that proper hand action is missing from many golf swings. In short, this book teaches the hand action of the golf swing and how to coordinate your shoulder turn with this hand action. The lessons on the hand action of the golf swing consist of four chapters: The Golf Grip, Addressing the Ball, the Hand Action, and Adding the Shoulder Turn. These chapters are written with detailed step-by-step instructions accompanied by color photographs illustrating many of the steps. Book Reviews The Feathered Quill by Deb Fowler ... This amazing golf instructional will be of use to everyone from the novice to the seasoned amateur who wants to tweak his or her game. This golf instructional was one of the best I've seen in some time, one that anyone wanting to improve their game should definitely add to their list! Kirkus Reviews ... When the author discusses hands, he covers everything from the waggle--those tiny adjustments that help fine-tune the "sweet spot"--through hand pivot and rotation, foot position, shoulder alignment, establishing target lines and the legendary golfer Paul Runyan's chipping technique. The lessons here are complicated--there are no gimmes--but they're also winningly commonsensical. A vital book that fills a gap in the golf instruction literature.

In the first book from popular Golf Channel analyst Brandel Chamblee, the network’s “resident scholar and critic” (The New York Times) explores the common swing positions of the greatest players throughout history—and reveals how those commonalities can help players of every skill level improve our own games. Every golf game begins with the swing, and no two are identical. Years ago, however, Brandel Chamblee, the highly regarded Golf Channel analyst and former PGA Tour professional, noticed that the best players of all time have shared similar positions in each part of the swing, from the grip and setup to the footwork, backswing, and follow-through. Since then, Chamblee, a student of game’s history, has used scientific precision and thoroughness to make a study of the common swing positions of the greats. Now, in The Anatomy of Greatness, he reveals what he has learned, offers hundreds of photographs as his proof, to show us how we can easily incorporate his findings into our own swings to hit the ball farther, straighter, and more consistently. What does it tell us that the majority of the greats—from Jack Nicklaus and Byron Nelson to modern masters like Tiger Woods—employ a “strong” grip on the club? How did legends like Ben Hogan, Sam Snead, Mickey Wright, and Gary Player unlock hidden power and control by “turning in” the right knee at address? Why are some modern teachers preaching “quiet” footwork when forty-eight of the top fifty golfers of all time lifted their left heels on the backswing, allowing them to build power? At the same time that Chamblee is extolling certain swing virtues, he also debunks a number of popular—but misguided—swing philosophies that have been hindering golfers for years. The result is perhaps the best and clearest explanation of how to hit a golf ball ever published. The Anatomy of Greatness is a book that golfers can take to the driving range and use Chamblee’s clear explanations to build better swings—and get more speed and consistency into their swings—immediately. It is like having a series of private lessons from the best golfers of all time, and it will help golfers build swings that make the game easier and more fun.
