It's been said that two people can keep a secret, but only if one of them is dead. Golfer Ben Hogan found another way: claim a secret, but tell many. Hunt has attempted to eke out Hogan's secret, seeking people who knew Hogan. He is not the first person to write about Hogan's secret. Indeed, within little over a decade the list includes several titles, such as Tom Bertrand and Printer Bowler's recent The Secret of Hogan's Swing. Then, too, there are the books by the man himself: Power Golf and Ben Hogan's Five Lessons. Hunt now makes several contributions: first he provides more technical language to describe the physical phenomenon of Hogan's swing. Dorsi-flexion and palmar-flexion are combined with pronation and supination. These are combined with "the dimple of the elbow." While Hunt acknowledges that many professional golfers have succeeded without utilizing Hogan's methods, he maintains Hogan is at center stage. The question that one has to ask is if this is the definitive unveiling of the secret. The answer is that we'll never know. Libraries with strong sections on golf instruction may find this of interest, but it's optional for most general collections.
