Video Golf Tip | Mastering Golf

I came into the game of golf as an adult, as a scientist. I wanted to sit at the knees of the legendary players. I set a goal for myself, the best three players in my lifetime had been Ben Hogan, Byron Nelson and Sam Sneed before Jack Nicklaus, Tiger Woods and other came along. But I knew that there was a knowledgebase, a database of information that was there among those three. They seem odd to compare those three. What are the commonalities, what are the differences? The only thing in interviewing those players that was similar among them is what I call their rage to master, their competitiveness, their need to beat the other guy. I never got around to doing three videos, one with Byron, one with Sam and one with Ben because Ben died, but in the two videos I did with Byron Nelson and Sam Sneed there were remarkable similarities in how they approached the game. Their independence, their rage to master, their fight, their intense desire to win. To not le the other guy beat them.
