    Sean Foley has a better swing.

    so true……… pro’s are just lucky that Foley’s passion for teaching
    means he isn’t making millions on the tour and shattering all records.
    Foley is the Laird Hamilton of Golf……… a playing genius beyond

    Foley RUINED Tiger Wood’s swing…..


    Carnoustie known for its relentless winds, bunkers and uneven lies, was a
    testament to Ben Hogan’s unbelievable skill and fearless approach to this
    great game of Golf.


    It’s not about having what may look better but the final number on the
    score card.

    great golfer, an aloof man ,I think he should have gone to britain
    more.There is no reason that he could not have won another four Opens
    Thomson did, same era.

    Carnoustie is also a very long course, the longest course in the British
    Open rota. It can be an unbelievably difficult course to play. Ben Hogan’s
    win was quite extraordinary, particuarly since it was the one and only time
    he played in the British Open!

    Sean Foley. Those who can do, those who cant teach.

  9. James Horan says:

    They asked Ben after he won the Open if he wanted to travel to St Andrews
    about an hour away. He simply said, “Not really.”
