From the revelation of Hogan’s two most cherished and provocative secrets, to the description of the game’s most revolutionary innovation, this book heralds the beginning of golf’s ascendancy to the #2 sport on the planet.

Where myth stops and reality begins is left to the reader to decide. Beware! None who read this saga will be immune to the ‘Irresistible Jones’ that draws humans to the game, like moths to the flame.
