We all know that Ben Hogan was one of the greatest golfers that ever played the game. Maybe what we don’t know is to the degree of extensive practice exercised by Hogan to find favor with the Gods of golf.
Hogan would apply a technique called muscle memory. He would practice over and over the very same swing until his muscles “memorized” the exact pattern and motion. Naturally, when he played in tournaments, he probably swung that club as easily as using a fork to feed himself!
