Whenever I see Mr Hogan in real time, I am astonished at the speed of the back swing and the transition – his overall tempo. For such a visually appealing mechanical movement so often played in slo-mo that it has just become embedded I guess, as a slower swing.
Thanks for the vid.

John Clark says:

that one at 7.58 secs, looks like a right SHANK, to me!!!!

Perfection.

paulthepill says:

minimum effort with maximum effect….such a shallow backswing and lots of lag, no real muscle from the arms but good rotation and sliding hips ……amazing.

James Johnson says:

Point reference – ie mark with a dot – the right foot and focus solely on the relative position of the foot through impact and in to the finish. Do NOT pay attention to anything else until you realize just how much movement is imparted on that foot. More importantly try to imagine how it might feel given how it moves. you can tell especially on longer clubs like woods and the driver, that it slides on a curved angular path toward the ball. I find it easier to clearly see the sliding motion if I focus peripherally on the front knee as I watch the back toe. You need your thinking cap to be on tight, but if it is, you'll realize this means it is moving much more than if it had been sliding straight from point to point. This is the key to figuring out what he did and how he did it. It is best to work backwards, trust me. This is the last energy chain domino so it can't be mimicked, which is the flawed tendency of the golfer – to mimic. This is a passive result and it is at the end of the "energetic chain", analogous to observing the movement of one end of a rubber a split second after it snaps. if you can independently work your way up the body in reverse using this as your starting point, you will have the best chance of putting the puzzle together and realizing how easy it actually is. You can't have someone explain it and it is NOT in any of his instructional rhetoric because he too understood it was not something you could explain with words, it absolutely has to be discovered, contemplated, and felt through trial and error by the individual themselves. Good luck I promise it is worth the time and effort, golf is not as hard as many of us thought.

God Bless Mr. Hogan

seemlyme says:

Cool. Thank you so much

Krazy Uncle says:

Mr. Hogan swung inside the box better than anyone.

Jamie Garnett says:

Oh and flaring both feet out at approximately a 45 degree angle (while it feels super awkward), helps this feel more balanced. His foot positioning was PARAMOUNT, even he says so. Yet, many choose to ignore it because it "feels" funky. He said, not verbatim, but to the best of my memory "The foot position is the foundation of the swing; both literally and figuratively." Good luck trying to copy him without that element. I feel I am close as I can come, and the feet got me there. Hope this helps.

Jamie Garnett says:

Everyone act like Hogan had this hugely influential "secret". I dono. I just don't really think he ever properly explained the direction he moved his weight on the backswing, and then on the downswing. The weight moves BACK away from the ball, to his right, then back IN, toward the ball. Most amateurs don't know that. Hogan was the best at this. It will help a lot of you, but it won't make you Hogan. Picture a line from your right foot to the ball. Move the weight THERE on your downswing. Voila.

Mark Galloway says:

I'd love to see all of these clips at normal speed.

Krazy Uncle says:

I can listen to this song and watch that swing all day.

Rob W says:

he swings that triangle with his legs not the top part of his body

Mike Bourgeois says:

It looks like he was hitting under some trees.

simon fedida says:

c'est tout simplement parfait !!!!!!!

CaptainAndrewWiggins says:

who is tigersmundo?

joshuaknowles says:

Sure doesn't look like Hogan to me at 03:22. Much less athleticism, less natural head motion, and acceleration and lag only occurs at the beginning of downswing, don't continue right through. Also wrist `trips' much earlier than Hogan's normally does. Still good swing though.

BenJogan says:

At 2:40 on the right you can see Jerry Lewis! That video is taken from "The Caddy"

BenJogan says:

At 3:22 that swing is taken from "Follow the Sun", the biographical movie. It may be the real Hogan swinging…

ant7797 says:

Huh?
i don't get it Chris? So thats not Hogan at 3:22? If not, then wow, its a good duplication attempt. Who is the person swinging at 3:22 mark? Do they have more vids?
