Book about golf with pictures and NO PDF???

Performance and story are great - for the 10 mins I listened. Ben Hogan is to be revered in the golf world, that is not a question. This is regarded as one of the best golf instructional books of all time. So I thought to myself, I would love to listen to this book and then have the pictures to go along with the explanation right there in a PDF so I bought the book and then guess what...NO PDF. Really, Audible? An instructional book on golf and none of the pictures from the actual book? Y'all should face an atonement for this travesty. Shame. Shame. Shame. You have just done Ben Hogan a disservice. He is rolling in his grave right now when he should rolling on the green. Unrill. Pshh.

Wonderful

As I listened to this audible book I felt I was receiving a private lesson. Mr. Hogan's explanation of the proper grip, stance and swing is clear, concise and duplicatable. After listening to the book just once the advice I'd received, over the years, from golf pros and friends suddenly made perfect sense.

I was so impressed with the Audible version of Ben Hogan's Five Lessons that I immediately went out and bought a copy in hard cover.

There’s Nothing Difficult About Golf, Nothing

“Up to a considerable point, as I see it, there’s nothing difficult about golf, nothing. I see no reason, truly, why the average golfer, if he goes about it intelligently, shouldn’t play in the 70s”
― Ben Hogan, Ben Hogan's Five Lessons: The Modern Fundamentals of Golf

Story: The story or purpose of this book is pretty straightforward - to help you improve your golf game. Ben Hogan, one of the greatest of all time, breaks the book into sections for players to focus on step-by-step. Take one fundamental, put it to practice and then come back for more. The book is setup well and is easy to follow.

Narration: Steve Carlson did a great job with the narration. He was definitely well-suited for the book. The pronunciation and pacing was excellent for the material and I just felt calm and relaxed throughout the listen - which is how I should feel while golfing!

Overall: **How does this book not automatically come with any purchase of a set of clubs!?** Seriously, this should be everyone's initial go-to manual. Truly, these are great and timeless fundamentals which were applied years ago and can be applied for years to come. I've started to use this information for my own game and already see improvements. Scores in the 70s - here I come!

This was really helpful guide for all players.

I really enjoyed this lessons. You can learn not only basics such as grip, stance and posture, but also keys of the down swing. The narration is also good even for Japanese. Enjoy.

Excellent!

Excellent narration.
Excellent information.
I understand why some are complaining that there are not illustrations. Although, I am not complaining due to the fact I have a good understanding what the examples are being described. For me this audio book is confirmation in basic fundamentals of playing golf.
Highly Recommend! ⛳🏌️‍♂️

Exactly what I needed!

Straight and to the point. Simple yet detailed in easy to understand terms. Even while listening on a road trip I can visualize the actions and moves.
