Hogan was one of my grandfather's closest friends. When I was a kid and we'd go to get togethers at my grandparent's house, Hogan would often be there. He was a quiet and sulking kind of guy, especially after the accident, but if you got him alone then he was a fine conversationalist.
My grandfather was big into golf and he got me into it when I was very young. Hogan would often join us, but he hated watching me swing. I hit the ball allright, but he was nevery happy with my technique. And he was always telling me this one thing that seemed simple, but took me many years to fully comprehend. And to make matters worse, he'd always tell me that I couldn't tell anyone. I had to take it to my grave.
Well, I realize now that Hogan conveyed to me his "secret." It's not so much a "secret" as a way of using your right elbow and left knee. I promised him that I would never tell anyone, and I almost never speak of it, but I do get angry when people accuse Hogan of manufacturing a secret. He did in fact have a secret that has allowed me to average in the low sixties throughout my golfing life, which has been on again off again, more off, due to personal concerns and commitments.
But all of you out there looking - keep looking. It's really almost clear exactly what he's doing in the video link below:
Are you sure that wasn't Col Robert Hogan? He had a lot of secrets. There were tunnels and hidden microphones. He kept those wacky Nazis busy for sure. Then there was the porn stash and the mob hit.
