Ben Hogan was a four-time PGA Player of Year and one of only five players to win all four Grand Slam titles. In a glittering career he was also the winner of a British Open title, four U.S. Opens, two Masters and two PGAs between 1946 and 1953. Herbert Warren Wind has been called 'the best golf writer in captivity'. His works include THIRTY YEARS OF CHAMPIONSHIP GOLF and THE COMPLETE GOLFER.
Golf god Hogan released this primer in 1957. The five "lessons" covered are the grip, stance and posture, the first part of the swing, the second part of the swing, and a summary and review. Each lesson is well described and pictured in numerous, detailed illustrations. The basics of hitting a ball with a club haven't changed much since this debuted, so this still offers valuable advice from one of the greats. Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.
