I started golf at the age of 16.  

Having played the two most popular sports in South Africa, rugby and cricket, I also represented my province in gymnastics, played tennis, and competed in swimming and diving. Therefore I thought golf would be a pushover!  Boy, was I wrong!  What did help tremendously, though, was the very first book I read on golf instruction.  Ben Hogan’s “Five Lessons, The Modern Fundamentals of Golf.”  Not only did I learn the basics, but that book inspired me to practice hard, and I turned professional two years after picking up a club for the first time.

So when I saw this slideshow by Golf Digest and Alex Myers, I just had to share, with the hope that this will inspire someone else to take up the game and feel the enjoyment I have felt for the last 50 years!

Ben Hogan’s nine major championships speak for themselves, but he also had an authoritative voice when it came to golf instruction. Hogan wrote two books on the golf swing — “Power Golf” in 1948 and “Five Lessons” in 1957 — that are still sought after by golfers of all levels. Known for his meticulous practice habits, Hogan constantly worked on trying to perfect his swing and these books were his outlet to share the knowledge he’d gained with the general public. Along the way, Hogan’s lessons were sporadically published in Golf Digest as well. Here, we look back at some of these gems that are just as applicable today as when he doled them out.
