Ben Hogan's "turning point"

Turning Point

Ben Hogan’s turning point (white line below) consisted of him laterally moving his tailbone over his left heel on the downswing.  What this did was place his center of gravity over his left foot which set his body in a perfect place where he could then turn hard toward the target.  That weight shift, as I describe in my video “On Target Power” ,   is basically just stepping from your right side to your left and then turning your belt buckle to the target.  You are a literally dragging the club through.  I feel as if the back of my left hand is slapping the back of the ball.  Note that the left shoulder joint is the top of the turning point leading the way through the shot.
