Putting is golf’s great equalizer, a seemingly simple aspect of the game whose surprising complexity has vexed both amateurs and pros for centuries. But now, for the first time ever, you can learn to putt like the legendary Ben Hogan, the winner of 9 major championships. Recognized by many as the greatest ball-striker and on-target tee-to-green player of all time, Hogan’s prowess with the flat stick has often gone unnoticed. But Hogan’s proficiency on the greens was like none other when it came to sinking difficult putts under high-stakes tournament conditions. Hogan on the Green presents readers with a comprehensive, illustrated analysis of Hogan’s revolutionary system for sinking short-, medium-, and long-range putts on a variety of surfaces. Complete with easy-to-follow instructions for setup and stroke techniques, as well as tips on putting strategy, practice, and mastering the mental game, this book is a unique and invaluable resource for those looking to perfect their putting. With anecdotal recollections and instructional commentary from those who knew Hogan best, including 1964 US Open champion Ken Venturi and Herbert Warren Wind, Hogan’s collaborator on his classic 1957 bestseller, Five Lessons, Hogan on the Green also includes a host of practice drills and a special section of putting lessons from renowned golf coach Claude “Butch” Harmon Jr.
