Having purchased a bunch of golf books on eBay for very little, the diamond in the rough was 'the Hogan manual of human performance - golf'. Bloody brilliant. When I read it, tried the theories, and had immediate results, I googled his name and found out about how popular this particular book has been over 25 years.

Reading the book again now, made me think, who if anyone teaches his theories in Australia?

Any comments, advice appreciated.

Gerry Hogan teaches it, at Coolum Palmer. He doesn't work there but I am sure the staff could put you in touch.

There was at least one protege also teaching his stuff at Coolum, and he has moved to Melbourne. I forgot his name, the Coolum people will know, it might come to me.... Greg someone.

Jerry posted on the other forum (ozgolf),when the lads were in a nunchuk frenzy. You should be able to pm through the forum if his subscription is current.

I have this book too.  I might have a re-read as I don't recall it making a big impression.  John Senden hasn't aged much.


I am not interested in your blog.

A few years ago I asked Gerry where he got his swing concepts from when he wrote his book. He mentioned Gary Wise (lefty long driving champion) was a big influence in writing the book.

The book is not based on popular golf instruction, which is a good thing for mine. Unfortunately, like popular golf instruction, it tries to simplify complex swing elements that most readers will misinterpret and consequently get wrong. I came away that Gerry didn't understand it himself and went with Gary's descriptions of what he felt he was doing.

Like most books on the golf swing, it describes the macro movements we can all see but fails to address those key micro movements (we can't see) that cause the macro movements.

How well do we know anybody? How well do we know ourselves? How well do we know our own movements?
Not that well for most of us.

Not even going to waste my time on this.all I was trying to do is help someone out about who teaches his theories in Australia & all I get is bullshit from you.youll here more about a player in the next 12months on tour who uses his methods.its not his opinion it's the laws of physics which are correct .

If there is a player then he wouldn't have got it from Gerry's book.

His description of posture which is a basic element in the swing conflicts with what the tour players do and what is taught to our elite golfers.

Bullshit???

I have been doing a fair bit of reading lately. It is funny how many things Hogan described that he did that were wrong. When you read what he said about his ball position and his right foot, what he thought he did and what he actually did are totally different.
