Ben Hogan is the most enduring icon in golf and his swing is the most studied athletic action in the history of sport. In 1946, after twenty-three years of relentless practice and continual experimentation, Hogan discovered a Secret that transformed him into the greatest ball striker of all time.

Hogan’s confidence in the Secret led him to state in his ground-breaking book Five Lessons: The Modern Fundamentals of Golf that any reasonably coordinated golfer could break eighty. When asked if the Secret was there in the book, he said that it was there and that it was easy to locate if told where to look. But Mr. Hogan never did tell. His blunt answer to the direct solicitation: The Secret is in the Dirt. Mr. Hogan was adamant about practice, hard work and self-discovery as a rite of passage. In 1997, the Master passed away and the Secret was lost forever.

This book decrypts Hogan's complex web of clues and decoys to resurrect the Secret in its brilliant entirety. This book reveals a startling fact about human bio-mechanics that has never been published before in any medical or golf journal. This book is your key to the Holy Grail of Golf: Ben Hogan's Perfect and Automatic swing.

Editorial Reviews

(1) Tom Ward, internationally known Professional Golf Instructor and former Touring Pro, in Sports Page Weekly - Dallas/Fort Worth: "Hogan was best known for his blunt answer 'digging it out of the dirt' when people asked him about his secret, but this book unveils a whole new meaning into what Hogan actually meant by that particular statement. Ultimately, this book really resonated with me on many levels. As a golf professional and instructor I've traveled a path with my own personal journey in discovering how to play the game at its highest level for five decades. I appreciate the effort and the fortitude that the author put forward in writing this comprehensive book. There are so many things that I agree with and concur in his writings because it deals with scientific laws of physics and aren't someone's opinions which can be quite misleading. This book isn't for the casual golfer because they don't invest enough time practicing or playing the game to care. However this book is an essential read in my opinion if you're a serious golfer looking to improve your game. Also this book is mandatory reading for anyone entering the golf profession who wants to become a higher caliber player and more importantly have a better understanding how to teach students the game the correct way. There are so many great things inside the pages of this book that I don't have the space in my column to discuss them...besides I wouldn't want to give away any intricate secrets spoiling it for the reader. That's why I recommend you order this book today and make your own personal journey."Tom Ward has set 17 course records in his career including a tied Guinness Book of World Record for shooting a 57 (13 under par on a par 70 course). He has taught golf in 45 countries. His students have ranged from beginners to winners on all the professional golf circuits (PGA, European, LPGA, Asian, Canadian, Mexican, South African, and mini-tours) as well as a who's who of high profile celebrities from the Sports and Entertainment industry (Movies, Television, Music, NFL, NBA, Major League Baseball and Hockey). Tom has had the honor of working with 3 former U.S. Presidents on their games. He has also instructed numerous CEO's of Fortune 500 companies and their clients. Two of his greatest passions have included working with children and the physically challenged. Working with people that have disabilities has taught him that the only limits we have are in our minds.

Golf Assessor is the Web's No. 1 independent golf equipment review website ("In his legendary book 'The Five Lessons', Ben Hogan states that any golfer with reasonable coordination can break 80. He always spoke of "The Secret" to unleashing his full potential, but never said what it was. To his grave it went with him, and we thought the Secret would die a mystery. This book (Crouching Tiger Hidden Hogan), however, unpicks his cryptic clues on the subject, and ultimately brings the Secret back to life."
