  1. if I was in a hogan gallery in 1953 I'd wait just a split second after he tee'ed off and then I'd scream at the top of my lungs………………YOU DA MAN!

  2. Gotta love how he uses a weak grip and can still command draws at will. He must be consciously aggressively rotating his arms and supinating his wrists during the downswing to accomplish this. I can't see any other way.

  3. This footage looks like it's running about 3/4 speed of reality. Most other footage of Hogan shows he swung faster than this (for example, the 1965 Shell match against Snead).

  4. perhaps he is revealing his "secret" at 1:25? If that is it,then for sure it is no easy thing to implement.It makes sense to me because if done correctly the shaft will flatten drastically in transition which his did as everyone knows.
