Well, the point is, his was the best secret.
Ben Hogan's "Secret" does anyone really know what it is? - Page 3

I think his secret is laying off the club, bowing the left wrist at the start of the swing. I have been doing that for years but I learned it from Calvin Peate, in an instruction article, I never met him., It really makes the swing repeatable, and for me, I only need two swing keys. Pull with the legs and curl the left wrist. From there everything falls into place. If I hit a bad shot I know it's usually because I started down with my hands. I think Hogan is probably the best ball striker the game has ever seen.
I think its was actually the cupping of the left wrist not bowing, that was his so called secret that was published in Life magazine.
Im not a big fan of Hogan swing, it's an antihook method, and Im not a big hooker of the ball.
Thinking about cup/bow left wrist just complicates my swing.
The only time I think about cup/bow is when I setting up to make a high or low pitch shot and when I consciously set my left wrist cup at address I tend to pitch the ball high, when I consciously bow my left wrist , I feel i can 'chase' the club thru the ball.
