Ben Hogan is widely regarded as having one of the best golf swings ever.
What interests me about Ben Hogan and his swing was that, while it was highly consistent and repeatable, it was also powerful. That is significant because Ben Hogan wasn't a huge guy. However, he could still smack the ball. That makes his swing an interesting model for both normally-sized men and for women.
I have put together two flipscreen analyses of Ben Hogan's swing.
The clips off of which I have based these analyses are posted below.
As a result, I thought it would be interesting to take a look at Ben Hogan's swing and see what made it tick.
In the clip above of Ben Hogan's swing, notice how he starts his swing by picking up his left heel during his backswing. He then starts his downswing by dropping his left heel and extending his left leg, just as good baseball and fast pitch softball players do.
