Habe mir das Ben Hogan Buch gekauft, da ich auch immer gerne ein wenig mehr über den Golfschwung erfahren wollte. Und siehe da, ich bin nicht enttäuscht worden. Das Buch mit seinen genialen Zeichnungen ist wirklich eine Klasse für sich und war jeden Cent wert. Da ich nebenher noch 2 Golfzeitschriften lese und diese bekanntermaßen einen Trainingsteil haben, ist mir aufgefallen, dass viele Tipps der Pros nichts anderes ist wie eine andere Ausführung der Übungen aus dem Buch. Und das ist mir nicht nur bei einer Zeitschrift aufgefallen. So gut wie jede Übung die ich fast monatlich lese, kommt in einer ausführlicheren Form in diesem Buch vor. Und bitte haltet den Titel im Kopf ("5 Lessons"). Komisch, dass die Industrie hier die Pros nach Spanien oder Portugal fliegt und ausführliche Fotoshootings macht und Herr Hogan das alles schon leicht verständlich veröffentlich hat.

Jeder Golfer der mehr über den Schwung wissen möchte, kommt an diesem Buch nicht vorbei.

.........in my very extensive golf instruction library. This simple, and concisely illustrated golf primer remains the standard for golf instruction many decades after original publication. There was probably no better ball-striker than Ben Hogen, and the way he goes about sharing information regarding his swing is equally concise, detailed and very easy to assimilate. In my humble opinion, the Best out there !

This excellent teaching device found me at the right time, having mysteriously started struggling with my takeaway and back swing [right elbow flying out at the top!]. I poured through it in a night to search for the secret cure and I found it. I can't believe it took me 18 years of golf to discover this book. This really should be in every beginner's bag, to get his or her mechanics and fundamentals together, as well as any long time golfer who occasionally 'loses' it. It's quite a testament to its staying power to note that there are no reviews of less than five stars for this wonderful manual [my rating will be no different]. Hogan boils down the game to one important aspect, striking the ball. Grip, stance, setup, back swing, downswing are all meticulously verbally described, and then highlighted by amazingly detailed and accurate drawings. Written as a series of SI articles in the 50's, the teaching voice has lost none of its punch over the ensuing years. The gods are in the details, and I noted immediately in the setup section things I was doing to hinder the chain-reaction of his preferred swing. Left foot out a quarter turn, hmm, that's new but makes sense, elbows at hipbone at address, and arms very close to chest to allow the right elbow to fold properly. That's what I needed. His description and the images of the glass / back swing / downswing plane will provide appropriate visual clues during practice. I found his discussion of the waggle and supination of left hand on follow through also quite interesting. I've purchased copies of this for my long-time golfer mother and my girlfriend who's just taking up the game, hopefully they'll enjoy it as much as I did, and we can discuss Hogan's straightforward instruction with a common background understanding.

Mr. Hogan keeps it simple. Nothing less than hours upon hours of lessons with a pro would effect your game more, and a great bit cheaper. All you have to do is read and apply it on the course or driving range. In todays complicated world it is great to see that a book writen in 1957 still hold so true today. Nothing has changed, just keep it basic.

I have played golf for 25 years and have bought dozens of golf instructional books. There is only one book I always come back to - and that is Five Lessons. This book set and will forever set the standard for golf instruction and golf swings. It is very simple and all one needs to take one's game to the highest level desired.

For nearly thirty years, my golf game has been "respectable." I've hovered between a 15 and 20 handicap, content -- though not thrilled -- to play bogie golf. This year, that will change. This year, I will break 80. And next year, I will do so regularly. This book is the reason. From the moment I decided to forget everything I thought I knew about golf and start practicing Hogan's dictates -- from grip through downswing -- I noticed an immediate, undeniable increase in the power of my swing. I'm hitting every club in my bag, and particularly irons, with a distance and accuracy I've heretofore only dreamed of. If you learned that the position of the ball within your stance is dictated by the club you're playing, i.e., woods and long irons near the left foot, mid-irons in the middle, and short irons off the right foot, that's only half-right. Hogan explains everything, from grip to stance to line to a little-known word, "supinate," all of which will change your game if you are willing to forget what you think you know and listen to a true master of the game. There are no easy fixes for mediocre golf, but Hogan proves that good golf needn't be complex. He simplifies the basics in an encouraging, assuring, positive style that builds confidence. I consult the book daily, and no matter what life throws my way, I make time to head out to the back yard with some wiffle balls (if not the driving range) every day, to further groove the "repeating swing" that Hogan, Herbert Wind and the precise drawings of Anthony Ravelli have given me, through this wonderful book. The best ten bucks you'll ever spend. Enjoy!

I think that this is a good book. I loved the discussion on swing planes, the set up and the follow through. Unfortunately, the chapter on the grip is a little dated. For a full swing, Hogan recommends a neutral grip with the "V" from each hand pointing at your chin. This grip robs you of a lot of distance in your shot because it restricts wrist cock at the top of the swing. It is similar to a continental grip in tennis. (Another outdated grip) Almost all the modern teaching on grips recommend the "V" of the right hand to point at your right shoulder and the left to point at your chin. This grip is similar to a two handed backhand grip in tennis. You will get more distance using this power grip. Given that half a century has passed and that almost all the information is still accurate, I still recommend buying this book.

As weekend hackers or duff rolers, whatever you like to call yourselves this is the book for you. I am a weekend hacker who is obsessed with improving my game. I rent all the tapes and try all the fads, anything to find that secrete that will help to lower my score. I have never found anything that works until now. This books not only tells you how the golf swing works it tells you how it feels. In my mind this is the only way you can learn to play golf correctly. You can't just go to a pro and let him show you what to do. To be effective he has to tell you how it feels when he does things. Now this is very hard for most pros to do (after all their swings are natural) but Hogan does a wonderful job of explaing the feeling of the way golf should be played.
Bravo Mr. Hogan, and I wish you well at the big golf course in the sky.

Eindrucksvolle Zeichnungen - erlauben die Darstellung des Wesentlichen besser als jedes Foto.
Nachdrücklich formulierte Texte. Vieles kommt einem aus der letzten Stunde mit dem Pro bekannt vor, nur kann man es hier Schwarz auf Weiss "getrost nach Hause tragen".

Over the last five years I've purchased three copies of this book. It is a fabulous reference guide for the basics, as well as an excellent resource for improving problems which periodically creep into ones game. I've purchased this book three times, yet as of today, I have no copies on my shelves, because I lend them out to freinds(?) who enjoy the book so much that they never bother to return it. So if Fred, Mike, or Gary read this, please give my book back!
