My son, wife, and I enjoyed reading this book by Ben Hogan. A golf instructional book clasic.
First let me start by saying that I'm a huge fan of Ben Hogan. But the book is a disappointment to me when compared to his book 'Ben Hogan's Five Lessons : The Modern Fundamentals of Golf' which is a masterpiece. Power golf as you can probably tell by the cover is a bit antiquated. He uses a lot of terms that most golfers now a days wouldn't be familiar with. He also relies on stories and references that the average golfer won't experience. He spends a hole 4 pages on putting. To me putting is half of the game. It certainly is half of most peoples score. His other tips on wind play and uneven lies is more general then specific. Its a quick read and those with good swings will find validation in his words. Those who are struggling to improve should read 'Ben Hogan's Five Lessons : The Modern Fundamentals of Golf' it will do more to educate and inspire the average golfer.
Ben Hogan's easy to understand style makes for easy reading. Great illustrations. If you are having problems with golf game spend the $7 - I did. It stopped the shanks, gave me 1 1/2 more in club distance, and knocked off 5 strokes.
A back to basics bible on golf. I had the shanks to the point of giving up the game after 20 years. Based on this book, I changed my stance, ball position, grip and swing. I gained 2 clubs on irons, and learned what backspin is. Got new putting stroke and grip. Went from high 80's to mid 70's.
