Ben Hogan Golf Lessons Book, Hardcover It's one of golf's sacred books. I get a kick out of the title, especially the word "modern." This book was written in 1957, but the lessons still hold true, and Ben would like you to know that the average golfer is capable of building a swing that will accomplish breaking eighty.

However, Mr. Hogan was a freak of nature with his huge Popeye-like arms and hands, and he also was known as being a workhorse. There are plenty of stories of Ben banging away until his fingers bled. (Ben would like you to know that the average man can pull up man-hole covers in the street with his bare hands and toss them around like Frisbees.)

One other thing that you need to know about Ben before you read this book is Ben fought a wild hook most of his life and was obsessed with hitting the ball from left to right. Most of you aren't going to have this problem. In fact, you are going to have the opposite problem.

Don't get me wrong; this is a good book and you should read it through, but then grab a copy of David Leadbetter's "The Fundamentals of Hogan."  In this book, David Leadbetter (one of the most prominent golf instructors of our time) breaks down Hogan's approach and tells you what works and what doesn't. Finally, he'll help the average golfer identify his own weaknesses and how to address them.
