Ben Hogan Shrine
  • I have a thought or theory in Hogans technique that is started at set up and intention of this is maintained throughout the swing, even when it cant be seen! That is a an intent to connect right shoulder to left elbow, right hip to left knee, right knee to the ball. whether his stance is open or closed, wedge, driver, draw or fade, this relationship would always exist!! This intention is tested by the swing dynamics and hence cant be seen at times particularly with the club being kept as...

  • Hello Linda, Thank you for your comments, It's not so much that I think that the left leg straight at set up is important, which I do, but rather that Ben Hogan did, otherwise why else would he do it. I have never heard of this being mentioned or discussed anywhere, but i do think it's a key component to his set up and swing and from the evidence I have it's quite clear he did this and Hogan strikes me as the type of person who wouldn't do something unless it achieved results. I have...

  • HI Paul, thanks for the facebook address. Not sure why you think the left knee not being bent as much as right knee at setup, is important. Not saying its not important, interested to understand your reasoning. I think visible in this video; Ben Hogans, right knee cap moves outward in BS and then inward in later part of DS, not kept stationary (kicked in), as so many seem to think. Its still a turn/pivot, not a sway, IMO. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AFBDJPBH02A#t=106

  • ... a facebook page i have created called Ben Hogan Secret. It's the culmination of 13 years of studying Ben Hogan's golf swing. The reason I have created this page is that i have become fed up with people profiting from what they think Ben Hogan's secret is. I encouraged you to have look and see what you think.

    Pls provide address for your facebook page.

  • paul kerin posted a new discussion, Ben Hogan set up Ben Hogan Shrine
    When looking down the line at Ben Hogan's set up with a closed stance, his left knee is not visible, when it should be. His knees only become square after the takeaway is made. I believe Hogan set up with his left leg straight and right knee turned in. I am interested to see if anyone has any thoughts on this.

    Bradley Hughes Golf- Ben Hogan Treasure Map
    Throughout history we always look at the best of the best in any field and try to pinpoint what makes them extra special at their profession. Today we will look at the secrets Ben Hogan left behind for us to analyze and utilize in our own golf swing. The sum of all parts make up his exceptional ability. One slight feel may have set him on the path to being a a better player but no ONE secret will allow us to be extraordinary at anything. I don't believe he really hid anything from us but he...

    Ben Hogan set up
    I have a thought or theory in Hogans technique that is started at set up and intention of this is maintained throughout the swing, even when it cant be seen! That is a an intent to connect right shoulder to left elbow, right hip to left knee, right knee to the ball. Whether his stance is open or closed, wedge, driver, draw or fade, this relationship would always exist!! This intention is tested by the swing dynamics and hence cant be seen at times particularly with the club being kept as under the right shoulder as possible, but because the intent remains it springs back as soon as the dynamics allow. What do others think?
