The Ben Hogan Setup Tip
One of Ben Hogan's setup positions was the cupping of the left wrist at address while keeping the right wrist flat. This helped to prevent a hook. The picture above is from 'The Complete Hogan' on page 63. Jim McLean provides a good description in this section of the book regarding the other setup keys Hogan used in his pre-accident swing. You can see the lean of the grip part of the club shaft away from the target as he begins the backswing in the series of photos in the book. This action is part of the big muscle swing Mr. Hogan described in his Five Lessons book and in Power Golf.
