NEW SCIENCE: FIX # 1. HOGAN "45" GRIP DIAGONAL -- FIX # 2. COIL "45" CONVERGENCE

[#4.] BREAKTHROUGH! -- Science Fix # 1 -- Hogan's PALM "45" GRIP DIAGONALS!

"PALM 45 DIAGONALS" --- For **PERSONAL BEST!**

                                                                       S E C R E T  "45"  D I A G O N A L S

                                               

                                                              Discovered 1990 -- Shared with Ben Hogan

                                                                             HEALTHY GOLF RESEARCH

                                      

                                       I well recall the first time I received a formal lesson on the grip.

                                                                                        Said The Instructor:

                                                                                  Be Sure Both Hands Are

                                                                             "PARALLEL ON THE CLUB!"

                                                                     (At the time it made a lot of sense.)


                   Later I learned this was only one of many views regarding hand placement and 

                one famous instructor -- noting a plethora of grip types in golf --claims the grip is 

                                                                          "Not" A Fundamental At All! 

                                                                               -- WHAT A MISTAKE --  

                                   Particularly when research demonstrates that the club is set in 

                                                                                     "Both Palms @ 45" 

                                                 Consistent With The Ben Hogan GOLF WINDOW!   

                                                                            ( Also See Mini Article 75 )                                                                                                                         


                                                                                   Let's also check the 

                                                                                       "ADJUSTMENT" 

                           made in Mr. Hogan's "BACK HAND GRIP" beginning in about 1946.  

                                                                                                 ---------

                             In CHAPTER "1" of Five Lessons Mr. Hogan shows the club in the 

                                                                      Back Hand "2" Middle Fingers 

                                                                            with the rest of the hand 

                                                       "MUCH TURNED OVER" The Lead Hand!

                                                                                           ( Page 29)


   Surely, pointing the "V" to the Back Shoulder is observed in many successful players  

                          and was Mr. Hogan's position of choice in POWER GOLF, 1948.

                 But this is "NOT"  what Ben Hogan advances in the Five Lessons, 1957!


  Take a new look at Chapter 1 and discover the "ADJUSTED" Backhand "45" Diagonal. 

               In fact, you can enlarge the adjacent image and check it with a Protractor.  


                  ** Also Check The Ben Hogan GOLF WINDOW on our 13th HOLE!

             It features a "BIG BOX" detailing a MAJOR "45" DIAGONAL showing how 

   ALL ELEMENTS OF BODY & CLUB "CUBICALLY CONNECT" IN HOGAN's SWING!

 

         Notice The Same Holds True For "HOGAN's TWIST!" The Back Forearm Has 

         The Function Of "REVERSING -&- CONVERTING" Into A Reliable "45" For 

                                                                         SLICE FREE GOLF!  

               (See Next Page, Item #5/Principle Of "45 CONVERGENCE" At TOS!) 


                                    Finally, it is worth noting that almost all players 

                 "DO NOT TURN" The Back Hand As "ADJUSTED" By Mr. Hogan.

                                     IN FACT -- THE HAND IS GENERALLY TURNED  

                                                      IN THE "OPPOSITE" DIRECTION!


** LEE TREVINO -- a Texas Neighbor of Mr. Hogan --Is Perhaps A Notable Exception!  

          He is also the person often called on by Mr. Hogan to Test Factory Models of  

                                                                   NEW HOGAN CLUBS! 

                 It's my guess Mr. Trevino studied carefully and took a long look at the

                                                         HOGAN GRIP -- 1948 vs 1957! 


                                                                            SPECIAL NOTE 

                        I had the great privilege of studying Mr. Trevino (& Herman)

                                                              -- UP CLOSE & PERSONAL --

                           On The Range "2 Hours AFTER" the Senior Tournament

                                at the Meadow Brook Club on Long Island in 1993.

                            It's true that Mr. Trevino could hit a slight fade "at will".

                        But it is equally true that he could hit "ANY SHOT" at will!


                    ** I was on one knee -- "4 Feet Away' -- on line with the ball. 

                              Very Generous of Mr. Trevino and  -- "Quite Special!" 


================================================================

"A Word To The Wise"

TO ACHIEVE YOUR 

"PERSONAL BEST"


1. WEAKEN YOUR LEAD HAND

             TO --"20"-- DEGREES

                 (As Per Page 26)  

                           --&--

2. ADJUST YOUR BACK HAND 

        -- AS Mr. HOGAN DID -- 

          TO "45" DIAGONAL! 


REMEMBER --THE CLUB IS "45" IN 

                 "BOTH PALMS!"


You'll "QUICKLY ADJUST" To This 

                 "SECRET In GOLF"

  And Take Your New Hogan Grip 

                      -- And Game --

      "STRAIGHT TO THE BANK!"

=================================

                                      NOTE 

It is well known that Mr. Hogan made his 

      "Grip Adjustment" in the Mid - 40s.

His Lead Hand Weakened To A 20* Position 

and His Back Hand Turned To A 45 Diagonal. 

                           IT IS FAIR TO SAY 

      -- FROM THIS POINT FORWARD --

        Mr. Hogan's game became stellar; 

       and even after his horrific accident

        -- with legs bandaged to the hip --

         went on to achieve an additional 

                   "6" of his "9" MAJORS!     

                                 In A Phrase:

"GOOD GOLF BEGINS WITH A GOOD GRIP."
