Ben Hogan’s secrets

Ben Hogan was an enigma. Often called “The Wee Ice Man”  Here’s some interesting facts and tidbits about him you may not know that help us understand him, his swing, and what he brought to the game:256px-Ben_Hogan_Walking

  • He was a terrible putter. His swing is what carried him to greatness.  “If he could putt 25 percent as well as Palmer could, he would have won 50 percent more tournaments.” – Tommy Bolt
  • Hogan had an extra spike in his shoe. It helped keep him down through his swing.
  • Hogan said:  “”My greatest accomplishment was being able to make a living after going broke twice after starting out.”
  • When Hogan was just 9-years-old, his father committed suicide with a self-inflicted chest gunshot. It is believed that his father died right before his eyes, which is often cited as the reason behind his introverted personality in his later years.
  • In 1949 he was involved in a near-fatal car collision.Despite the doctors mentioning that he would never be able to play again, a year later, he competed in the 1950 U.S. Open. He won it, playing 36 holes on the final day, despite severe pain.

Here is a small sample from The Stress-Free Golf Swing developed from Hogan’s Swing Secret

First I want you to imagine…

– Swinging without a million and one swing thoughts going through your head.
– Playing golf and not trying to find a swing to use that day, because you have a simple one you can rely on and trust.
– Having one key move that you practice and perfect, and the rest of the swing just falls into place.
– Swinging with one key swing thought and that swing thought staying the same, from one swing to the next and from one game to the next.

Sound far-fetched?

It’s NOT!

The advice I give you in this book, Stress Free Golf Swing is for you to have the simplest golf swing on earth. It finally solves the problem of golf swing timing for us busy golfers who don’t spend hours every day hitting balls.

Now in the main part of this book I have not included any information on the setup. But at the end of this book I have included some bonus information on the setup, if you want to refresh yourself with the important aspects of the setup.

This book, however, is about the golf swing, and how to make that easier. The setup is obviously very important. But if your setup is ok then you’ll get the most bang for your buck by improving your golf swing and making it more efficient and easier. That’s what this book is all about, so let’s get started…

The Modern Swing Problem

One of the things that the majority of golfers find most challenging about the modern golf swing is timing. One day you have it and the next you don’t. It’s very frustrating, isn’t it?

And when you look at the golf pros on tour they seem to have good timing day after day. But here’s the thing….

They hit hundreds of balls every day to have that timing. You on the other hand, I imagine don’t have the luxury of spending hours and hours every day hitting balls.

Even if you do have the time to spend every day hitting balls, what I share in this stress free golf swing method will make the golf swing a lot easier. And this one move comes from a golfer who basically invented practicing, Ben Hogan.

Ben was also one of the best, most consistent ball strikers the world has ever seen.

And I believe he knew exactly what the secret was to his consistent swing, but he never revealed it to anyone. I also believe at the end of his career he didn’t hit lots of balls every day to figure his swing out… but instead he did it because he loved to hit the golf ball properly.

It’s well documented that Ben Hogan had a bad problem with a hook earlier in his golfing career. And it’s well known that Ben changed his grip from a strong grip to a weak grip to help combat this. He did this before his car crash in 1949.

But after the car crash his ball striking improved!

The 3 time major champion and hall of fame golfer, Cary Middlecoff, said that Hogan was as inconsistent as most tournament professionals before the accident, scattering drives in the rough and imprecise with his irons.

“It was in 1950 that he began showing the kind of precision golf that set him apart”.
– Cary Middlecoff

Because of the car crash, Hogan saved his strength to focus solely on winning major championships. And win them he did!

Just 17 months after his car crash Hogan won the 1950 U.S. Open. That’s the one with the famous 1-iron into the green at the last.

Then of course, in 1953 he won The Masters, The U.S. Open and the British Open and unfortunately he couldn’t compete in the PGA Championship because the qualifying was at the same time as the British Open.

However, I won’t go on about his record after the crash, because you can look into that more if you want to.

The point is, Hogan said he had a secret and his ball striking improved after the car crash.

In April 1954 Life Magazine published an article in which Ben Hogan was quoted as saying….

“I have a secret… It is easy to see, if I tell you where to look.”

In the next chapter I am going to explain what I believe the secret was, and show you evidence for this. But before I do that, here’s the problem with the modern golf swing that is often taught these days (and I’m not pointing fingers, because I have taught this and I learned this)….

That’s a small sample from the new Stress-Free Golf Swing. To find out more about: The Stress-Free Golf Swing.

    the problem is, HERBERCOOPER, that when you ask for instruction about it from a dozen instructors you get a dozen conflicting answers … if you really want to learn how to do it, think of the highest prime number you can, which will probably be odd, then ask that many teachers and use the info that matches across the highest number of them, hopefully almost half …. start this quest when you are just a week or two out of diapers, and when you are in your last hour on this planet dictate the info to somebody to publish for the rest of us LOL !!!
