<div>Ben Hogan is legendary, intriguing, and mysterious. It’s a combination that has contributed to Hogan being the most interesting golfer of all time. Aside from his amazing competitive record, his secretive and solitary personality provoke wonder and devotion among thousands of golfers worldwide who attempt to unlock Hogan’s secret code of how to swing a golf club and strike a golf ball. Hogan himself has fueled this intrigue, mainly because he openly declared that he had a “secret,” one that he never publicly revealed. Many top professionals have speculated on what they thought Hogan’s secret might be, but until now those speculations were not supported by any revelations from Hogan himself. Now, author Larry Miller, who was mentored by Tommy Bolt, who in turn was one of Hogan’s protégés, shares Hogan’s secret as he learned it. This secret fundamental, which Miller breaks down into two aspects and explains with the aid of full-color photography and illustrations, will help the average golfer implement Hogan’s teachings to benefit his or her game.</div>

By Howdy Giles, Introduction by James Dodson, Foreword by Arnold Palmer
Cloth Price 27.95

Cloth, PDF

ISBN 9781600782855

Published Sep 2009

Howdy and Arnold’s friendship began with a rather ordinary encounter nearly 50 years ago when Howard Giles snapped a simple photograph of his hero passing in a parade; it has since grown into a remarkable friendship between an American legend and his most ardent fan. Since that time, Giles has conservatively snapped more than a quarter-million photographs of Palmer. Sharing never-before-seen images of Palmer on and off the golf course over the past four decades, The King and I explores one of the most charismatic figures in the history of the game, from intimate private moments to extraordinary public events. The book is told with refreshing candor and wit by perhaps the ultimate fan of the man and also includes entertaining commentaries from Jack and Barbara Nicklaus, former President George H.W. Bush, Gov. Tom Ridge, and a host of colorful former and current PGA Tour stars.

Published Apr 2007

Soon after its original publication in 1986, A Golf Story was heralded as one of the classics of golf literature. It is a book that intertwines three immortal subjectsâ€â€ÂBobby Jones, Augusta National, and the Masters Tournamentâ€â€Âinto one compelling narrative. These three stories are inextricably linked; together, they form a fascinating backdrop to an April drama that is unique in the annals of golf and that, like Jones himself, transcends sports. Using firsthand experiences with Augusta National and the Masters Tournament that date back to 1948, Charles Price spent three years weaving together this historic story and, in an unprecedented move, Augusta National opened its guarded archives for his research, thereby making this book the first authorized history of both the club and the tournament.

Published Apr 2006

Byron Nelson: The Most Remarkable Year in the History of Golf provides an unparalleled examination of the most amazing feat in golf history. In 1945, Nelson won a jaw-dropping 11 consecutive victories on the tour. Overall, he won 18 tournaments that season, finishing either first or second in 25 of the 30 PGA events that year. No golfer since has come close to such perfection. Nelson accomplished his feats over 60 years ago, long before Tiger Woods began setting records, before Jack Nicklaus won his sixth Masters title at age 46, before Arnold Palmer won the 1960 U.S. Open, before any of the historic wins by golf greats Tom Watson, Lee Trevino, Nick Faldo, or Greg Norman. Byron Nelson achieved what no other golfer will ever likely come close to doing again.
