A golf lesson from ben hogan and his golf swing in biz hub slo-mo swing vision style

As described by the great man himself. If you are under 40 yrs old, you may never have seen this. The same fundamentals Hogan describes are still used by many of the worlds top players.

  1. That’s correct. Every great ball striker in the game will tell you
    this..(and it’s really dominated my thinking) “If you can take the tension
    out of your grip, you can take the tension out the rest of your body.”
    That’s why I started waggling in my pre-swing routine…to allow my hands &
    forearms to relax. When I can feel the full weight of the club in my
    fingers,I’m ready. It”s helped everything in my swing. And more you relax,
    it allows the the elements of the swing to happen at max capacity

  2. think of separation. The left hip from the left arm at the start of the
    downswing. Left arm resistance gets you in the slot and avoids casting.
    Think of left hip moving toward the target and the left arm trying to go
    the other way.

  3. @golfswingfixer Good point. Although starting the swing from the ground up
    is important, the preservation of the spine angle (with the head and
    tailbone at each end, remaining steady throughout the swing) is absolutely
    vital to consistently strike the ball hard and true. Keep swingin’ and I’ll
    see you out there!

  4. Thanks “doctordonal” for posting this video for me to view!!!! I used
    snippets of it on my website because the clarity is pretty good for this
    old clip.

  5. @TheAnthonydigian LOL you might as well say it looks like Jim Furyk’s
    Swing. “stack and slap” may have a few positions that appear to be similar,
    but Mr Hogan swung the club very differently. Although you could mention
    the large lateral hip movement forward and left. Bennett and Plummer are
    expert salesmen and are laughing all the way to the bank!

  6. Is that kind of language necessary for a comment on golf lessons?…bet you
    live in a council flat, out of work and drive a car with no tax or
    insurance…sum you up??

  7. Back in the ’80’s Golf Magazine had an editorial by Thomas Boswell and the
    theme was to build a case to support how difficult it was to dominate the
    tour because of the depth of talent. Tom Kite was quoted as saying if Hogan
    was still active on the tour, he doubted the great man could win more than
    2 tournaments. I replied with a letter (which they printed) and I agreed
    with Kite, but I added that I figured that wasn’t bad for someone in their
    70’s with 2 bad wheels. Greatest ball striker ever!

  8. @golfswingfixer Of course “he fails to mention” a lot of things—DUH—there
    are too many aspects of the golf swing to encompass them all in ONE tip. He
    wrote TWO books on the full swing alone, hardly mentioning chipping and
    putting. Heck, he spent FIVE pages on the grip alone. No ONE tip is going
    to encompass ALL aspects of the golf swing. His two books have been
    reprinted many, many times over the years and have helped thousands, maybe
    millions of golfers.

  9. What’s amazing to me is how Hogan created this swing without fancy lessons
    or high profile swing coaches, without slow motion video, without Bizhub
    camera feedback, without all the gimmicks and tricks you see today. He
    learned it in the dusty dirt driving ranges in Texas. It’s just amazing.
