Ben Hogan : Old Master’s Show

Learn Ben Hogans Secret

All of us saw the famous "beach" clip where old Mr.Hogan shows how to swing to his friends. However, not many of us try to go deeper into his outstanding presentation and to find certain biokinetic lego pieces that were present in all post-secret swing motions of Ben Hogan.

I have already sacrificed some videos to these lego pieces describing them in detail on base of Mr.Hogan's (and also other greatest ballstrikers') action. Now, we can see the great man performing all of them even when showing his swing purposedly in a slo-mo ! Trigger compression, diagonal stance, biokinetical grip, firm rear side creation, swinging from the ground up, early elbow plane, etc. – all were there on the beach together with Mr.Hogan and are here with us all forever now.

The music that accompanies this vid has been composed by a genial Polish contemporary composer – Zbigniew Preisner; the tiltle – "Van den Budenmayer Concerto en mi mineur (SBI 152) Version de 1802"; it is a part of the soundtrack for the Krzysztof KieÅ›lowski's great movie "The Double Life of Veronique" – one of the best movies in history of film.

    @ngascoigne Not exactly. I started to search the best scenario for applying
    Newtonian physics to the swing motion and human anatomy; it appeared that
    post-secret Hogan’s motion was the closest to the biomechanical ideal but
    also that there are a lot of common denominators for best ballstrikers
    (Trevino included).

  2. Neil Gascoigne says:

    @h1e2x3 Don’t you think that it is the common denominators that you should
    focus on, cause i do.

  3. h1e2x3 says:

    @ngascoigne I do and my series of vids show many of the similarities of the
    greatest ballstrikers such as SPC, EEP, trigger compression, firm rear
    side, etc. However, there are minor differences between them as well,
    that’s why the macroscale biophysics should be the ultimate judge.
    Otherwise, for instance, how would you decide whose stance is sounder:
    Hogan’s or Trevino’s if they are not the same ?

  4. Neil Gascoigne says:

    @h1e2x3 Does that not mean Trevino shows us the diagonal stance to be
    somewhat irrelevant? And i know that it is done by many of the greats, but
    you don’t have to swing exactly like Hogan to be a great golfer, though it
    certinately would help. 🙂

  5. h1e2x3 says:

    @ngascoigne Do not forget that Trevino’s swing lacks universality of shot
    shaping (that’s why he had problems with certain courses); Hogan’s swing
    did not. It’s mainly because Trevino’s stance was biomechanically inferior.
    Of course we do not need to swing exactly like Hogan or Moe or Trevino or
    Furyk – but we all certainly can apply biokinetical golden principles that
    I am attempting to underline.

  6. Neil Gascoigne says:

    @h1e2x3 Ok, well good luck with your work cause i don’t see Trevinos action
    to be in any way inferior.

  7. h1e2x3 says:

    @ngascoigne I did not say that Trevino’s action is inferior (although I
    really should and it really is if bigger number of the elements of his
    swing is biokinetically less sounder); I said his stance was inferior to
    Hogan’s in this particular discussion and explained shortly why. I invite
    you to my forum or to WRX if you are interested in a longer exchange of

    J- Another great video. It really illustrates everything you have
    highlighted in one video. Question for you: Does Hogan get on the early
    elbow plane by using the “harley” move that Burley has a video on (moving
    left wrist from cupped to bowed as first move from the top)?

  9. h1e2x3 says:

    @finster869 It’s tough for me to estimate conscious moves of accomplished
    players, thus, I cannot deny or I cannot confirm it. The “Harley Move” can
    refer to going from cupped to bowed position at impact for sure. What I
    know is that getting on the EEP does not require anything conscious – it is
    just a natural consequence of establishing the vertical (downswing) axis of
    rotation onto the lead side while creating the secondary (downswing) axis
    tilt – just as all best ballstrikers did.

    my coach told me that the slow motion swings is a drill for muscle memory.

  11. h1e2x3 says:

    @wagaiznogoud There is no something as “muscle memory” in reality. However,
    it does not negate that it may be a good drill.

    Your videos are great. Who exactly are you trying to reach out to with your
    teachings? I understand much of it (not all) but where are you planning on
    taking your research and for what purpose? Also, are you from Montreal?

  13. h1e2x3 says:

    @hogansking Thank you very much. I am trying to help average weekend
    hackers to understand that they do not need to follow totally ineffective
    golf instruction of today that’s not based on physics and anatomy. If I am
    able to devote completely to this goal (it would require much more free
    time and much bigger financial resources) I’d love to go deeper to the soft
    and neuro structure of human body. My dream is to find a method that helps
    average golfer play good golf without many range hours.

  14. h1e2x3 says:

    @hogansking P.S. No, I am from Poland.

  15. hogansking says:

    Interesting. I do teach the game for a living and have been named as a top
    teacher. You are exactly right in that the majority of golf instruction is
    not based on physics or anatomy. How are you planning in incorporating
    neuropsychology into your findings? Afterall at the end of the day, there
    are some areas that are by-products of nature and not necessarily nurture.
    I asked you if you are from Montreal due to your handle. If so I would be
    interested in meeting you.

  16. h1e2x3 says:

    @hogansking Well, it is a honour for me then. I have made a plan at the
    very beginning of my amateur researches concerning all three sectors: hard
    structure, soft structure and neurostructure but was able to start only the
    first one. Generally, all is being based on the theory of limitations. I
    would love to meet you as well as many great people connected to big golf –
    unfortunately, I am located in golf’s 3rd world in Eeastern Europe without
    much possibilities to travel around the world.

    @grinchychristmas It’s subconscious mind’s job. Muscles do not possess
    memory cells like e.g. brain does. Muscles only react to either conscious
    or subconscious “orders” sent to them.

  18. Stephen C says:

    You heard what Mr. Hogan said about muscle memory? Talking to a reporter he
    said, ”muscles ain’t got no memory, they do what I tell them to do.”
    Which means Mr. Hogan was conscious when he played not only of his swing
    but I suspect of the moment. How many bad shots or are made empty headed
    without thought? Conscious has to be a great way to live. Mr. Nicklaus in
    his book says when he was concentrating well he had 5 swing thoughts but he
    averaged 2 swing thoughts if he was not concentrating wel

    Muscle memory? I’ve been playing for years and can make more than a full
    turn hips and shoulders my mate plays once a week and plays half swings
    well half my swings anyway his muscles have no memory ov how to get alway
    round so not memory like your brain but flexibility in muscles I think that
    what people mean when say ‘muscle memory’ not fucking brain power

  20. Diamnzpuck says:

    Muscles don’t have memory. This man had the will to excel. How important it
    is to learn from him and who he was… the world would forever be changed.
