LOL, funny. Or combine the Champions and the Legends tours, and turn it into The Lawrence Welk tour with polka dancing.

I don't think Hogan's "secret" is any kind of magic pill. What he was doing was getting into a wrist position at the top that's conducive to generating a fade. I certainly wouldn't attribute his great ball-striking to this little characteristic.

You are right, what worked for Hogan wouldn't necessarily work for all.

I agree. Sometimes the best solutions to grooving a swing are the simplest.

But Hogan's "secret" also included the position of his knee through the backswing. Holding that position generated power and stability.

For all Hogan fan, you might enjoy my novel, The Caddie Who Knew Ben Hogan, published this may from Thomas Dunne Books. The plot goes something like this:

Returning as an honored guest to the exclusive country club where he caddied in his youth, Jack Handley remembers the summer of ’46 when he caddied for the legendary Ben Hogan. Now a respected and elderly historian, Jack recounts the love affair between a young golf pro and the daughter of the country club president, as well as a tense and dramatic golf match between Hogan and the young pro. At the end of a magical summer, the club pro will win and lose at golf and love, and the teenage caddie will learn lessons for life taught to him by one of the great gentlemen and players of the game, Ben Hogan.
