Book Reviews


Golf improvement for beginners5 star

This is an excellent book if you are starting to in the game of golf. I read this book when I was starting playing 1 year ago and during that spam my ball contact and swing have improved tremendously.55

Hogan makes it simple!5 star

I have been playing golf for 40 years, taken many lessons, and have practiced hours on the range. This book breaks down the fundamental like no other. If you start with a proper grip, the correct posture, the proper backswing, begin the downswing with you hips, and trust this chain reaction… you will improve.55


Foundational book5 star

I’m just beginning to pick up the game in my late 30s and this book has answered so many questions I’ve asked my friends while hacking my way through a course… everyone has a different answer of course. This book clearly (and I assume) accurately lays the foundation for the entire game.55

Great Book5 star

The lessons in Ben Hogan’s book are timeless. While I do think the swing is very personalized, there are the fundamentals that every golfer must learn in order to be successful. This book breaks down those fundamentals into a quick, easy read.55
