POP ART GOLF TIP: PANE OF GLASS

PANE OF GLASS
IS STILL A GREAT IMAGE 

Anthony Ravielli illustrated an article on my father, Claude Harmon, wrote for Sports Illustrated in 1967, and I grew up reading Mr. Hogan’s Five Lessons, so it was wonderful to see these drawings again. This illustration of Mr. Hogan and the plane of glass might be the best instruction image ever created. You just glance at it and immediately understand its message: The club needs to come from the inside in the downswing. I teach the same idea today; maybe 80 percent of the players at my golf school would shatter that plane of glass by coming over the top. The only thing old-fashioned about the drawing is how flat Mr. Hogan’s plane is. Modern swings are more upright, but the idea of staying underneath the glass is still a great one.
