For most golfers, the large difference in skill between our playing skills and those possessed by professional golfers is to be found in the short game. They can snuggle their approaches in closer, hit out of traps more effectively, and chip to gimme range more consistently than the rest of us. Hunt first gives the uninitiated a short biography of Hogan, tied together with a well-done synopsis of the swing Hogan described in his best-selling Five Lessons: The Modern Fundamentals of Golf.
From there, Hunt explains how to use those same elements in the next part of the short game, chipping, the bane of my own golfing existence. Hunt then brings the reader along to show how to apply these same fundamentals to longer pitches, three-quarter iron shots, and full swings with short clubs. Later chapters go into further detail to describe different kinds of greenside maneuvers, such as running chips or high-lofted approaches that stop quickly.
Another chapter toward the end is devoted to golf exercises, many of which can be performed at home in the dead of winter. Comments Posted: Jun 22 AM.

Just flipping thru "timeless golf swing" by T Watson I like the imagery about the football field post as an alignment aid I do this subconsciously but havent been able to put in words and I dont think I seen another instruction book describe like that Funny thing his first chapter talks about divots and how they should bottom out in front of the ball like dollar bills yet he was known as a golfer who took the minimum divots or not at all.
The best golf book I have ever read, the one that made it relatively simple to understand Hogan's "secret". In my opinion, the best book on Hogan I have ever read, and tremendously helpful to my golf swing, and above all, to my score!
