30 Things of June: Ben Hogan’s The Modern Fundamentals of Golf

Ben Hogan spent a lifetime mastering the art of the golf swing and packed it into this slender hardcover. It is a must read for anyone with interest in the game. The book breaks down Hogan’s findings and beliefs on the swing and serves them up in a clear and concise manner. Anthony Ravielli’s artwork throughout the book is also a treat, from small diagrams to lifelike illustrations of Hogan in action. First published in the 1950’s, this book holds as much relevance today as ever, and the writing/aesthetic on its pages radiates a grandness that speak true to such an enthralling game.
