In the follow-up to his successful Ben Hogan’s Magical Device, author Ted Hunt takes things a step further, focusing his attention on the elements of Hogan’s picture-perfect swing specific to shots attempted within 100 yards of the flagstick. Ben Hogan’s Short Game Simplified begins with an overview of Hogan’s magical device for the uninitiated and segues into a detailed, step-by-step breakdown of Hogan’s swing from the takeaway to the follow-through, with each step garnering its own dedicated chapter complete with illustrations, photos, and drills. Chapters focus on chip shots; flop shots; bunker shots; putts; spinning, drawing, and fading the ball; Hogan’s fundamentals; additional drills and exercises; and a special chapter of Hogan stories.
Ted Hunt is a lifelong golfer with more than fifty years of experience on the course. He holds two degrees in physical education and a doctorate in history; he is the author of Ben Hogan’s Magical Device and Ben Hogan’s Short Game Simplified.
