021 | Five Lessons by Ben Hogan

Let’s call it like it is... Golf can be frustrating. When most of us decide to hit the links, we usually spend more time chasing balls into the woods than driving greens and sinking putts. However, according to golf legend Ben Hogan, it doesn’t have to be that way.

Ben Hogan was one of the greatest professionals to ever play the game, and he firmly believed that any amateur could be taught to break a score of 80 with a little training and practice. According to Hogan, all it takes to become halfway decent at golf is a proper understanding of the fundamentals. And that’s how Five Lessons was born.

From your grip on the club to the finish of the swing, Hogan takes his readers on a step by step journey through the fundamentals of golf. Five Lessons is a short, 109-page read first published in 1957, and in it Hogan masterfully teaches amateur golfers the secrets of the pros. Easy to follow and applicable for golfers of any skill, there’s a reason why this book continues to be printed over sixty years after it was penned.

Whether you're an avid golfer or just bought your first set of clubs, Ben Hogan’s Five Lessons is well worth the read. It also makes a great gift for Dad, Grandpa, or any other golfer in your life who'd love to lower their score. Trust me, their swing might look pretty rough right now, but if you're the one who cracks the code and somehow manages to lower their score, they’ll be thanking you for years to come. You and Ben Hogan, of course. But I should also warn you, before you read Five Lessons, just know...

This book might cause you to spend more time at the golf course than ever before.

It will also make you spend less time in the woods.
