Fundamentals of Hogan
With 85 Newly Discovered Photos From Ben Hogan's Classic InstructionBook - 2000
In 1956, Ben Hogan, regarded by many as the first golfer of the modern era, sat down to relay his secrets of the game. He wanted to reduce golf theory to five core lessons, fundamentals of the game, which would be beneficial to all players of any standard or age. The result was his Five Lessons: The Modern Fundamentals of Golf, which, when it was first published in 1957, represented a defining moment in the history of the sport. With sales of over five million copies worldwide, it is the bestselling sports book ever. Now, a superb follow-up to this original classic has arrived to propel the art of golf instruction into the 21st century. The Fundamentals of Hogan boasts a wealth of previously unseen Hogan instructional photography and the expert analysis of David Leadbetter. In this book, Leadbetter builds upon the foundation laid down by Hogan. He shows how modern analysis has confirmed, refined, altered and, in some cases, superseded Hogan's insights. And he offers new insight into the ways high-speed photography and golf equipment have changed our understanding of the game. Splendidly illustrated with classic photographs and precise drawings, this book deserves pride of place in every golfer's library.
