Ben Hogans’ Slow Motion Practice Routine

Not so long ago, a video of Ben Hogan appeared on the Internet, where he is seen showing his friends how he practiced. It is obvious that this footage was not meant for the broader public, however, after so much time, we can be thankful for its appearance. The movie was taken at Seminole Golf Club, in a backyard of one of his friends. Take a look at the excerpt of this recently published video (introductory sequence of Tiger Woods added):

Here is an additional great piece of evidence related to Hogan’s training methods. The following video is much older, however. At first glance, it seems that it is just a swing at normal speed in slow motion. However, notice the audience in the background:

It is amazing how smoothly and with such a flow he is able to conduct his swing in slow motion. At first glance, I was sure that this was just a slow motion video. His slow motion swing is a perfect copy of the full speed swing. It is obvious that he practiced golf innumerable hours in this way.

Just recently I discovered another one:

In the above videos we can't see a crucial detail. It is well known that top golfers, and especially Ben Hogan, are (were) able to hit the ball exactly with the sweet spot every time. So, as said, we can’t see, but can clearly understand that in the above footage Ben Hogan is hitting dead on the sweet spot every time during the slow motion drill. If one is not a completely accomplished golfer, he will not be able to do that, and that is why he can benefit from a specially designed precision impact drill before taking to Ben Hogan’s slow motion drill.

The Book: Slow Practice Will Get You There Faster

Slow Practice Will Get You There Faster Link between Ben Hogans' mirror practice and his slow motion drillSlow Practice Will Get You There Faster: Link between Ben Hogans' mirror practice and his slow motion drill

by Ernest Dras

In this breakthrough manual, you will learn the way that many great masters and teachers in various disciplines recommend we learn things, the way they developed their amazing skill. It is astounding to discover that, at root, they all eventually excelled in their art using the same approach, and this has been used for centuries in martial arts, in fencing, and, in the post-modern era, in a variety of sports. It is known as the slow motion practice method, and we find it used by virtually all great performers in the world of pianists, violinists, guitarists, and other musicians.

In golf, Ben Hogan exemplified an outstanding example of this method, but he kept it hidden from almost everyone. Slow motion practice was more or less unknown in golf until recently, when some very rare and safeguarded footage of him appeared on the INTERNET demonstrating the technique. In his books, he spoke about swinging in front of a mirror (without a ball) in order to shape the correct form of the swing. However, in the truest sense of the term, he never spoke about the slow motion practice as presented in these videos. However, it is very difficult for a serious golfer to take advantage of this method unless he or she has it explained along with access to directly implement the technique. This is what my book and invention provide to the international golfing public for the first time.

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly Golf Instruction

We at The Solar Sweetspot are dedicated to provide you with the tools and knowledge for improvement of the key element of the golf swing - IMPACAT. To be able to hit the ball consistently with the centre of the club face is the key for any further advancement.

While TSS Golf Groover training aid is meant for golfers at any level, from casual recreational ones to most dedicated students, TSS Pin training aid and method is meant only for very serious and disciplined golfers.

Sweet spot precision practice requires hundreds and thousands of shots, so we began to look for some practice tool that would allow repeated hits without distractions and would make the process easier...

The existing devices were just not good enough, so we began to upgrade the "ball on the rope" idea. We wanted a real golf ball and as less distraction as possible between practice shots.

Similarly as with practice net, you do not have good feedback regarding swing path and clubface angles when practicing on the groover. Sg3000 is not meant to completely replace practice on the golf range. it is a tool specially designed for a comfortable and effective practice of the most important basic of the golf swing.

To master the sweet spot precision is drastically more difficult than to adjust the swing path and clubface angles. It can take years to master the sweet spot precision even only close to that of tour pros, but you can adjust your angles and swing path in a lesson or two.

Let us compare hitting a golf ball with shooting with a rifle. Golfer’s incapability to control the sweet spot precision can be compared to a ramshackled rifle. No matter how good the shooter is and no matter how precise he targets (aligns the angles of the rifle to the target), with a ramshackled riffle he will always be imprecise because the bullet leaves the barrel in a randomly different way.

To accurize a ramshackled rifle can be a very difficult task and can take a significant amount of time; the barrel must have an absolutely uniform dimension (to the ten-thousandth of an inch) for the length of their bores in order to be accurate, and, there are other factors that might need to be worked on. However, once the rifle is accurate, it's all downhill from there.

You take the improved rifle to a shooting range and although you aim precisely using scopes, the bullet might repeatedly miss the target in one direction. You adjust the scopes accordingly (angle of the barrel in relation to the target) and now the bullet hits the target every time.

Similarly, adjusting the club face angles and swing path of a golf swing is really a piece of cake in comparison to mastering the sweet spot precision.

So, you should not worry if the swing path or club face angles are one or two degrees off while committing your full attention to the sweet spot practice using the groover. The optimal scenario is that you combine your groover practice with that on the range. For example, during the week you practice at home on the groover, and then during the weekend, you go to the range. There you can fix any face/path discrepancies you notice and then bring the adjustments to your groover sweet spot practice. In this way, the discrepancies will be minimized and negligible.
