Ben Hogan was so ahead of his time. The format of this book is so enjoyable to read and so easy to understand. He provides excellent illustrations and explanations of the fundamentals of golf swing. I’ve been playing golf for 12 years and I’ve never read this book until now. It was a good reminder to me to get back to the basics.55
