I was browsing the Amazon golf books tonight, and when I sorted it all by popularity, Ben Hogan’s Five Lessons: The Modern Fundamentals of Golf came out as number one.
I wonder how long this book has been on the golf bestsellers list. More to the point, I wonder if it has ever NOT been in the top two or three.
I will confess that it is not a book that I was able to process. Like many golfers, it was the first instruction book someone recommended, and the first I read. But it didn’t click. I’m a much bigger fan of The Plane Truth for Golfers Perhaps, though, with many years of golfing experience under my belt, I should revisit Hogan’s Five Lessons. There HAS to be a reason that it is so popular.
