    In what way was it better than Tiger Woods' 63-score last round at the BMW last week?

    Default What Hogan DID and didn't do.



    He didn't lean left (so-called stack & tilt), and he didn't have any goofy tripod.

    Thank goodness!
    All you have is your hand path, the force along that path, and torque about that path.


    That's your means for creating the proper D-Plane with the proper speed, for the desired shot.

    A couple'a questions:

    Anybody have the record of what clubs are being used for the various shots? I know that's a long shot...

    Also, did Hogan's swing get a little shorter through the 50s and 60s? It looks shorter with the driver sometimes than I've seen.


    Every fairway and every green, eh? Nice. What'd he shoot?

    69 with a three putt...Hit a bunch close and missed quite a few putts. The Shell's Wonderful World of Golf was taped at Houston Country Club in 1969, and it was a match between Hogan and Snead. The course played quite long, over 7000 yards, and they were taken off the course early because of a thunderstorm.

    No missed fairways, no missed greens, you could almost say no missed shots. Mr. Hogan hit a number of shots quite close, and the putter certainly let him down. The course was also over 7000 yards, and when you are only averaging about 255 (based on what the announcers say Hogan's driving distances were during the round), it is quite amazing to watch.

    The four wood (first fairway wood shot that they show in that clip) he hits is incredible, among a number of other shots..

    Default Amazing Hogan

    "Hogan's performance is especially startling considering the conditions. Normally, taping for the Shell's series took about eight or nine hours, but the Hogan-Snead match took two days to film. There was a three-hour rain delay after the second hole".
