'This is the most important golf instruction book of the last 40 years' Jerry Tarde, editor Golf DigestFrom the Back Cover:
In 1956 Ben Hogan, seen by many as the first golfer of the modern era, sat down to relay his secrets of the game. He wanted to simplify golfing theory to the point of five core lessons, fundamentals of the game, which would be beneficial to all players of any standard or age. The result was his 'Five Lessons: The Modern Fundamentals of Golf' which, when it was first published in 1957, represented a defining moment in the history of the game.
It is testimony to its quality and the enduring strength of Hogan's principles that, over 40 years on, it is still revered by modern-day students of the game as the 'bible' of golf instruction. With sales of over five million copies worldwide, it is the best-selling sport book ever.
Now, a superb follow-up to this original classic has arrived to take its mantle and propel the art of golf instruction into the 21st Century. It boasts a wealth of previously unseen Hogan instructional photography and the expert analysis of David Leadbetter. The lost photographs of Hogan, which were used by Anthony Ravielli as the basis for the illustrations in 'The Modern Fundamentals', have recently been discovered in their original boxes (labelled by hand) and appear in full in this book. Leadbetter, a self-confessed disciple of Hogan, not only re-affirms the quality of the original teachings, but offers his own fresh interpretations by virtue of advances in high-speed photography and golf equipment, and provides countless thoughts and alternatives that will help 'you' benefit from Hogan's unique insights into the mechanics of the golf swing.
'The Fundamentals of Hogan' is a precious blend of past, present and future and is quite simply the only golf instructional book for the new Millennium. It deserves pride of place in every golfer's library.
