Ben Hogan and the 10 Degrees of Shaft Flattening

By Wayne | Videos: Swing Analysis

I like to watch my collection of Hogan videos and I am always trying to find things that are consistent throughout his career. In this video I focus on the amount he flattened the shaft from P3 to P5, as well as on the way he pushed his entire pelvis back in the backswing, creating a much more bent over posture and steeper shoulder turn as his arms and hands swing inward and across his chest.

An Interesting Dialogue with my Friend Jeffrey Mann Part 2 of 2

By Wayne | Videos: Swing Analysis

And here is Part 2: As you may know I consider Jeffrey Mann to be one of the most knowledgeable people I’ve met when it comes to golf swing mechanics. I have met with Jeffrey at his home twice and once on the driving range before flying out of Salt Lake City where he lives, and I admire his fascination (obsession?) with the workings of the golf swing. Jeffrey is not a good golfer, but he is an ultra-smart guy who has applied his experience as a doctor who cut up cadavers (he knows his muscles, bones, and connective tissues) and as a research analyst for some high -level science publications to figuring out the best way to strike a golf ball.

From The Vault: Swing Compilation: Hogan, Nelson and Snead- the Second Great American Triumvirate

By Wayne | Videos: From The Vault

Here are three of my favorite swings. The 2nd great American triumvirate, these guys dominated the Tour for the most part from 1934 to 1954. Nelson was the first to break out with 3 majors in the 30’s, while Hogan didn’t win a tournament at all until 1939 and won his first major in 1946. Snead spread his majors out over a 17-year period starting in 1937, while Nelson won his 5 majors in the 8 years from 1937 to 1945 and Hogan between 1946 and 1953.

Swing Analysis: Jack Nicklaus and Ben Hogan- Surprisingly Similar

By Wayne | Videos: Swing Analysis

You wouldn’t really expect to find a great amount of similarity between the “upright” swing of Jack Nicklaus and the “flat” swing of Ben Hogan, but in this video I show that they are actually eerily similar when viewed from a skewed face on angle. I thought of making this comparison after responding to a comment on my video “The Lost Art of the Lifted Left Heel” which chastised me for instructing people to push off their right foot to initiate the downswing, saying that was a horrible thing, and that it was actually the left knee that initiated the forward swing.

This was a four page spread of Kevin Streelman in the May issue of GolfDigest, it wasn’t available online at first (unless you had an online subscription I believe). Some of you have seen it in print and Tom mentioned it in the forum but it’s online now so we can link to it. Check […]
