Click "The Masters Vault: Hogan Plays Augusta" for 2:54 of goodness.

Obviously that page has other good stuff, but I think the Hogan clip might be the best. Check out the shaggy grass! Seems to be the late 40s.

Wow, pretty amazing stuff. My favorite was the approach shot from the fairway on 13. You could really see the curve of the ball off the club face.

We talk about how good the players are today, but watching this clip shows how good Hogan really was. Amazing stuff especially given the equipment and balls.

Great stuff here.  Do you think Hogan hit those shots live the first time or they did multiple takes and kept the best ones.  If he hit them all on his first try he's even better than I imagined.

Thank you for this.  I had not seen it before so it was a great treat.  The Byron Nelson clip was also quite a nice one.

Agreed those shots were impressive.  It really is amazing considering the equipment difference.  He was hitting a 3 wood onto the 13th green and the commentator mentioned guys were hitting 5 irons into it now.

I think I could watch the up-the-line tee shot (around the 0:58 mark) on loop for about an hour. Beautiful. Makes me want to go read his book again.

It really shows the brilliance/skill of the man. Everything was hit stiff. I especially liked when he hit the chip shot to like 3 feet then dropped another ball and holed it.

Cool video. You don't see that kind of material too often. It was no coincidence that he won as much as he did. A bit different practice rounds today where the crowds following Tiger are as large as on a regular tournament. :-P

My favorite Hogan story: he was on the range hitting three iron draws. His caddie was standing about 200 yards away with a shag bag. For about 25 shots in a row, the ball would land in the same spot, bounce once, and land in the bag. The caddie didn't have to budge. Then Hogan missed his target by a yard, and the caddie had to take a step to the left to catch the ball. Hogan grumbled to himself, hit another 20 perfect shots, and then hit another one where the caddie had to take a step to the right. Hogan looks disgusted and says, "Damn it, I used to be able to hit that shot."

    • Next time you see someone on a c*****v****e "news" program pose this question EXACTLY as you have (funny that), ask yourself why they simply pose the "question" as a "talking point" or rhetorical question. They will NEVER ask the question and then go to someone who can actually it - as people on this site can easily do. You'll just see a row of people smugly nodding their heads and smiling as if it' sa "gotcha" question. Problem is, they know that if someone was allowed to answer it, they'd be seen for what they really are. You will NEVER see famous TV  personality X say: "If a person is worried about getting COVID, and they get the vaccine, the vaccine protects them, correct?  Then why should they be concerned if I didn't get the vaccine? Here's expert Y to answer that question."
    • Mattm16... by any chance does the "16" that follows your moniker refer to your age?  If so, that could explain a lot.  I was cocky, sure of myself, hardheaded and knew much, much more than everyone who was older than me when I was 16.
    • Exactly - the notion that opinions deserve "equal time" seems pervasive.  If 99.9% of credible scientists believe something and 3% of people with no education "think" something (with nothing to back them up) they demand that their "opinion" be respected. Without any sense of irony, @mattm16 acknowledges that he "thinks" certain things but cannot justify them. He actually said the following - could there possibly be a more anit-intellectual admission? "I don't have facts to back up what I think.  I just think certain ways."  @mattm16 2021  
    • "There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." -- Isaac Asimov
    • Day 212: Played 18. Shot an 81. Driver was all over the place. Short game was good. Irons were ok. Need to work on driver.
