Compliment for the key of Hogan's Swing"The mystery of Hogan's Swing is going past natural guide, providing insightful shot-making and method advice handed directly to former journey professional John Schlee from Ben Hogan and interpreted splendidly via Tom Bertrand and Printer Bowler."--John Andrisani, writer of Tiger's New Swing and Heaven Can Wait"Like discovering the Rosetta stone of golfing. . . .

Example text

One day John and Hogan were playing at Shady Oaks, and they came to the tee of a par five. Ben gestured to John to stay in the cart because they were going for a little ride. They drove to the top of a rise in the fairway about 265 yards from the tee and got out of the cart. Ben took out his 5-iron and surveyed the area for a moment. Then he walked over to a flat spot and axed the clubhead into the turf. He said that was the target spot the architect had designed to give golfers the best chance to get home in two.

He put a lot of effort into each class and was always “on” throughout the weekend. M. , with classroom time each morning and range work in the afternoons. qxd 7/13/06 36 9:39 AM Page 36 t h e s e c r e t o f h o g a n ’ s sw i n g We attracted students from across the nation through large ads in Golf Digest and GOLF magazine. After John and Acorn Sports got together to produce the Maximum Golf Teaching System (book, video, and audiotapes), most of our students came from sales of the system. John set a limit of twenty participants per school and employed three assistant instructors: Bruce Petz, Lin Wicks, and me.

John was free to talk about some of their experiences, but during Hogan’s lifetime John must never publicly divulge the secrets he was being taught. When John started his Maximum Golf Schools in 1979, he followed these instructions and adapted Hogan’s key ideas into his own teaching program, giving full credit to his teacher. In 1986, he produced a book and a video titled Maximum Golf, the only published instructional system based solely on personal experience with Hogan. True to John’s commitment, his book withheld confidential information, including the insights Hogan had dug up after his own book, Five Lessons: The Modern Fundamentals of Golf, came out in 1957.
