Can someone explain the Hogan obsession?
Can someone explain to me why many have such an unbelievable obsession with trying to figure out Hogans secret or copy hogans swing.
It took hogan countless of hours per day every day for years to 'perfect' his golf swing, now how do people expect to copy this with no where near as much time let a lone talent?
Hogans ballstriking was exemplory for 2 years or so pre accident? Boo Weekley has now topped the ball striking stats 2 years running now on the pga tour with modern equipment, modern courses and modern conditions, should we all be trying to copy his move? if he could remotely putt im sure he wouldve won much more than he has, with those ball striking stats its unreal that he hasnt.
Now im not saying Boo is better than Ben, im just trying to understand the fascination with a golf swing that most of us have only even seen on video on youtube, how many of the top players in the world now swing like hogan, mahan? garcia? dufner? and countless that dont. theres more than one way to get the job done, why not focus on basic things like turning the shoulders 90 degrees to the spine and making things easy than countless manipulations at positions that took one of the most talented golfers ever thousands of hours to ingrain?
