Yup gl coach , good one bout face , post hogan era instruction ask player to roll thru the wrist thru the ball , hook becomes a huge part of a better golfer equations .. Swinging too far right too much tilt , contradicting pieces of golf instructions . Hogan swing is bookish and he found a way to unhook. But is it possible if someone find out a better way to control the face and the swing becomes far less complicated? The culprid might just be the hogan bible , a fashion , he made something imperfect perfect .. But generAl golfdom do not have the kind of comitment like him ...
Maybe the perfect swing to learn belongs to Jack Nicklaus who did everrything "wrong" , have u heard Jack nickaus tinker with his swing? Or could not control his swing anypart of his career? D plane friendly swing which btw drop and turn relaxing like earnest
square and square , not pronate suprination hogan, even reverse of what hogan did is good , my 2 cents.
Jack did pretty much everything right, IMO. His flying elbow wasn't really that "flying", like Eamon D'Arcy.
If you accept the premise that Hogan found a swing for Hogan, then you can also accept the premise that Nelson found a swing for Nelson. Some guys picked up on what Nelson was doing; one was Jack Grout, who taught a young Nicklaus to swing hard, get his hands high, and keep his head still. And some other things as well.
Even though I keep reading "5 Lessons" and other commentary about Hogan, my Bible is Nelson's "Shape Your Swing the Modern Way." With the exception that Byron was turning through the ball a lot more than he thought, there is so much in that book that is applicable to players without Hogan's exceptional wrist action. But, Nelson's book keeps it pretty simple, as wll.
