This project is proving to be a learning experience for me and I have spent many hours over the last seven days studying old film of Mr. Hogan from all possible sources. I have become increasingly confident that one of his “secrets” was the purity of his pivot motion. He was able to keep a constant spine angle on both sides of the swing and at no time did his head raise until well into the follow through.
One of the key moves that was taught to me was the necessity of a forward hip slide at transition; however, the sliding of the hips forward done incorrectly will lead to early extension and loss of posture which causes a multitude of compensations and swing flaws.
My conclusion so far is that in order for Mr. Hogan to have been so consistently accurate his pivot had to be nearly flawless. Even after the accident he was still able to turn on a consistent hip angle and maintain spine angle and that has become the focus of improvement for my golf swing.
I am still focusing on three exercises, for the week ending June 07: 5,200 repetitions completed.
