Re: "Five Lessons: The Modern Fundamentals of Golf" by Ben HoganI spent 6 weeks going through the lessons without going to the range. I spent 15-20 minutes a day on lesson one (the grip), then spent 10 minutes on that lesson while focusing my 15-20 minutes going through the next lesson (7 days a week). Lastly after starting lesson 2 I spent another 10-15 putting all the lessons together. For the 4th lesson I recommend practice setting up, then when starting the downswing ONLY TURN THE HIPS for the week, then The 6th week I spent doing nothing but standing there for 30 minutes going through everything, finally learning to implement the wrist pronation. I have a poor handicap due to my poor short game. I recommend avoiding the driving range until after going through all the lessons to get rid of every bad habit you developed golfing.
This book is excellent as it gives you a number of checks to go through prior to each shot. When I am striking the ball poorly on the course I just take my time and go through each step. I've read this book no less than 8 times since May.
I still practice the arm swing lesson daily and practice my waggle.
