Now, author Larry Miller, who was mentored by Tommy Bolt, who in turn was one of Hogan's protégés, shares Hogan's secret as he learned it.

The Anatomy of Greatness

Lessons from the Best Golf Swings in History

In the first book from popular Golf Channel analyst Brandel Chamblee, the network’s “resident scholar and critic” (The New York Times) explores the common swing positions of the greatest players throughout history—and reveals how those commonalities can help players of every skill level improve our own games. Every golf game begins with the swing, and no two are identical. Years ago, however, Brandel Chamblee, the highly regarded Golf Channel analyst and former PGA Tour professional, noticed that the best players of all time have shared similar positions in each part of the swing, from the grip and setup to the footwork, backswing, and follow-through. Since then, Chamblee, a student of game’s history, has used scientific precision and thoroughness to make a study of the common swing positions of the greats. Now, in The Anatomy of Greatness, he reveals what he has learned, offers hundreds of photographs as his proof, to show us how we can easily incorporate his findings into our own swings to hit the ball farther, straighter, and more consistently. What does it tell us that the majority of the greats—from Jack Nicklaus and Byron Nelson to modern masters like Tiger Woods—employ a “strong” grip on the club? How did legends like Ben Hogan, Sam Snead, Mickey Wright, and Gary Player unlock hidden power and control by “turning in” the right knee at address? Why are some modern teachers preaching “quiet” footwork when forty-eight of the top fifty golfers of all time lifted their left heels on the backswing, allowing them to build power? At the same time that Chamblee is extolling certain swing virtues, he also debunks a number of popular—but misguided—swing philosophies that have been hindering golfers for years. The result is perhaps the best and clearest explanation of how to hit a golf ball ever published. The Anatomy of Greatness is a book that golfers can take to the driving range and use Chamblee’s clear explanations to build better swings—and get more speed and consistency into their swings—immediately. It is like having a series of private lessons from the best golfers of all time, and it will help golfers build swings that make the game easier and more fun.

More than a half century after he began his professional career, Ben Hogan is still considered the purest striker of a golf ball in the history of the game. His was a swing honed to perfection, and teaching professionals agree that Hogan's technique is the perfect platform on which golfers of all skill levels can build a fundamental understanding of golf. Unfortunately, photographs of Hogan's full swing and detailed close-ups of his grip and positioning have never been available for analysis. Instructors from around the world have always begun with a serious handicap when explaining to their students how a man of average stature could generate exceptional power and control from tee to green. Now, thanks to the newly discovered critical photography featured in this book, the mysteries of Ben Hogan's form are revealed. One vital characteristic of David Leadbetter's teaching philosophy, which has made him the world's #1 teacher, is his ability to translate very difficult swing concepts into easy-to-understand language. When the lost photographs from Hogan's seminal instructional manual, Five Lessons: The Modern Fundamentals of Golf, were discovered by the Hogan estate, David Leadbetter was the immediate and perfect choice to craft the quintessential instruction book for today's golfer, based on the Hogan form. By combining his exceptional skills as a communicator and his encyclopedic knowledge of the mechanics of golf, Leadbetter uses these remarkable images of the master at work to demonstrate the basic techniques of golf. The result is The Fundamentals of Hogan, the one book that all golfers who dream of breaking 80 need to have in their libraries. Golf's #1 professional instructor translates Ben Hogan's fundamentals for players of all skill levels From the Hardcover edition.

Elegant and perceptive musings on the world’s greatest game from the dean of American golf writers This illuminating collection features many of Hebert Warren Wind’s most famous essays, including “Jones Breaks Through,” his masterful portrait of Bobby Jones’s first major championship, won in an epic eighteen-hole playoff against Bobby Cruickshank at the 1923 US Open, and “North to the Links of Dornoch,” an evocative travelogue that established the venerable course in the Scottish Highlands as one of golf’s premier destinations. Wind captures Ben Hogan, Sam Snead, Byron Nelson, and Ken Venturi in their prime, and brings readers back to an earlier era when Harry Vardon ruled the links. He profiles golf’s female pioneers—Mickey Wright, Babe Didrikson Zaharias, and Joyce Wethered—and sings the praises of Bernard Darwin, “the greatest writer on golf the world has ever known.” In his Sports Illustrated deadline ode, “The 1958 Masters: Palmer at the Fateful Corner,” Wind brings Arnold Palmer’s first major championship to vivid life and coins Augusta National’s most iconic and enduring term: “Amen Corner.” Lyrical, evocative, and insightful, Herbert Warren Wind’s Golf Book is a must-read for students of the game and fans of classic sports journalism.
