9780002188753: The Fundamentals of Hogan

Ben Hogan’s The Modern Fundamentals of Golf is the best-selling sports book ever, with over six million copies sold worldwide. This sequel to the original book offers previously unpublished photographs and the expert commentary of David Leadbetter.

First published in 1957, Ben Hogan’s Modern Fundamentals was judged by Golf Digest in 1999 to be the best instructional book ever written.

In this sequel all the illustrations from the previous book have been expertly reworked, while also included are 80 previously unseen photographs of Hogan, that were shot for the original book but never published.

In addition to these exclusive photos, David Leadbetter, the most heralded golf instructor of the modern day, lends his expertise in the form of a revealing commentary. Famous for his work with Greg Norman, Nick Faldo and Ernie Els, Leadbetter analyses Hogan’s swing and explains what you can learn from the old master.

The Fundamentals of Hogan is destined to become a golf classic. In one package you have the restoration of the number one golf book of all time, by the most heralded teacher of the modern day, about a man who had the greatest golf swing of all time. The Fundamentals of Hogan will surely be the instructional book for the new Millennium.

Review:

'This is the most important golf instruction book of the last 40 years' Jerry Tarde, editor Golf Digest

From 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.
