Taken from Al Barkow's site. ( http://albarkow.com )

One descriptive Hogan used is amusing:

“To verify a correct backswing, at the top of the backswing the groin muscle on the inside of your right leg near your right nut will tighten. This subtle feel of tightness there tells you that you [can make] the correct move back to the ball.”

Iron of Zion:

Thanks for that post....I hadn't been to his site before.

Hogans comment about "true concentric turn" regarding the hips caught my attention big time....I posted something about "concentric circles" a while back on the LTLGM thread....

Rats like concentric themes....that's why we don't chase our tails. Will have to check this out. :) RR

You're most welcome RR, there is some good stuff in that article. (if you know where to sniff :twisted: )
For one it shows the con artist that Hogan could be at times...

"It's up to the player to dig it out on the practice tee by himself with trial and error....You can't do it in 5 (five) minutes; you're lucky if you can do it in 5 (five) years... It's a training process... Give it enough time and thought, anybody can break 80.."

" I never played in a $100,000 tournament in my entire life. I went broke twice...and had to take odd jobs just to try again. It stops you when you can't eat or pay your caddie "

"There's no set time or schedule for developing one's skills as a (professional) golfer, and it certainly doesn't just come overnight. It's a muscle memory exercise that comes over time"
