    The key to Hogan’s swing is in the setup. As anyone paying attention knows,
    he gripped the club with a slightly open face. Now to accommodate this and
    get the club face square he had to adjust his stance. All one needs to do
    is to start with a slightly open grip out in front with the feet square.
    Now turn the knees, hips and shoulders only, towards the front leg and
    place the club face down even with the heel of the front foot. This will
    make the face appear to be pointing to the left (for righties). While
    maintaining this new setup point the club face square to the target line.
    This is the Hogan setup – the foot line closed and the hips and shoulders
    slightly open. This allowed Hogan to maintain the “A” in his back swing
    since there will not be much lateral movement and he would naturally bring
    the club to the inside. As he continues to explain in this excellent
    instructional video from 1964, the downswing starts with the lower body.
    The one thing he doesn’t explain is that there is no need to come at the
    ball from the inside but that one can come at it as hard as possible
    straight down the target line, very similar to a baseball swing, with a
    full release and no angles to be held (as this would cause an undesired
    block or pull). Thank you, Christo, for your outstanding work and passion.
    I’ve enjoyed your channel from its humble beginnings. Peace…

    Excellent breakdown!

    I absolutely agree with you Christo! I got inspired by Mike Maves too. And
    what you said from 3:05 is so true! That’s EXACTLY what I feel about
    video-analysis and drawing lines.

    If Ben Hogan didn’t change his strong grip and his aim (Said himself he
    aimed way right to allow for his hook), we would have never heard of Ben
    Hogan.. His fundamentals changed drastically but people tend to focus too
    much on technique and not what actually allowed him to make the anti-left

    nice video – odd but i myself started imagining the letter A superimposed
    after watching some fred couples swing videos a couple years ago. This
    video shows how Hogan’s driver swing had his head preset behind center for
    greater distance and consistency from that anchored right hip, yet which
    comes back to center before impact to match his impact head position with
    the shorter clubs.

  8. Michel Ferreri says:

    Thank you Mister ! 🙂 for you, it Mister Hogan, not “Hogan”. When you use
    always his Name.
    Thank you, you are very polite.
    ….and sorry for my bad English ;)

    well the mid am is match play then off to Agusta as amateur. i think you
    can dance judo chop and swing your way to it.😆

    I am seeing something different than you Christo. I see the video of
    Hogan’s motion as a reaction to his intent.

  13. Krazy Uncle says:

    You can take a lot from Hogan’s swing, but don’t think for a minute you can
    swing like him. Why? For starters, you need to have the same body type as
    Hogan. For example, you need to be the same height, arm length, torso, leg
    length. Hogan’s swing was the most fundamentally sound golf swing of all
    time. However, someone taller will find it very difficult to flatting the
    back swing like Hogan because that typically works for shorter players, ie
    Hogan, Tom Kite, Gary Player, Sergio Garcia, etc. But I take nothing away
    from whatever you can from Hogan’s swing.

  14. Greg Lavern says:

    Moe Norman always said to me, “Hogan was great in his own way.” Ben Hogan
    and Moe Norman had the highest respect for each other as the two greatest
    ball strikers in their era. Hogan once said in an interview, ” Moe Norman
    is the only golfer he would walk across the street to watch.” Its a shame
    that purity of technique has disappeared in golf today where hamburger
    divots have replaced the bacon strip iron shots of Hogan and Norman.

    Christo, I wish you the very best on your journey to reach your full
    potential as a ball striker and player. Keep up the good work on your swing
    evolution from your study of Ben Hogan’s pure golf swing.

    Here is a little something I have learned during my experiences with great
    ball strikers, “To obtain a sense of personal satisfaction in golf requires
    focus on what your trying to achieve while at the same time during your
    practice sessions you must practice the right things to reach your full
    potential.” Simple, though gospel for Ben Hogan and Moe Norman who are two
    great ball strikers. These target oriented players had many similarities
    particularly with weight shift and leg drive while each had a different
    approach to the golf swing in accordance with their own make-up. GL

      Thank you, Mr. Lavern. I have learned so much from Moe Norman as well. The
      greater knowledge provided by these two greats has made the game I’ve
      played my entire life so incredibly enjoyable – finally!

    Stop saying ‘Mr Hogan’ incessantly, it’s a bit creepy. He’s just a golfer.

  17. Ray Frosti says:

    Have you studied the swings of Mike Austin and Mike Dunaway? Their swings
    are great examples of “spiral” energy. They also do a great job of
    abducting the front should and adducting the rear shoulder. This increases
    their turn and “takes the slack out” as they say. I don’t feel those
    shoulder actions get enough attention.

    • myswingevolution says:

      I have studied Mike Austin but I should check out Mike Dunaway. It’s
      important to take the slack out.

  18. Christopher Johnson says:

    The most beautiful swing OF ALL TIME.

  19. Edmund Woronicz says:

    Hogan was a prisoner of his own swing… he had to practice incessantly to
    maintain it. By his own admission he had to practice daily for fear that he
    would lose it. Not a swing for the masses and not even emulated by todays
    Tour Professionals. I agree… saying Mr. Hogan repeatedly is creepy and

    • myswingevolution says:

      In 1953, Mr. Hogan won 5 tournaments out of 8 that he entered and three of
      them were majors. That same year he launched the Ben Hogan Golf Company.
      Somehow he had time to do both. Since he won 6 of the next 9 majors he
      played after the accident, whatever he had to do worked extremely well.
      Most pro golfers would do the same if it guaranteed a career like Ben
      Hogan. I am now a member of the Hogan community that works hard to preserve
      the legacy of Mr. Hogan and we refer to him as such out of great respect.
      You do not have to respect him or myself, but these are my opinions.

    • Edmund Woronicz says:

      Quite the opposite… as a PGA member who met Mr. Hogan on several
      occasions I am am a big fan. I greatly admire his talent, commitment to
      excellence, passion and unending dedication to finding a swing that finally
      produced the results he wanted. But this thread was not about his
      accomplishments, but rather about his swing.

    • myswingevolution says:

      +Edmund Woronicz So, your opinion is that it worked for him but it required
      too much maintenance to be practical, and folks who refer to him as “Mr.
      Hogan” are creepy?

    • Edmund Woronicz says:

      Precisely… to much work for the average player.
