Unsolicited November 2011 testimony from the father of a current PGA Tour player
"VJ ... After we talked I downloaded your Final Missing Piece book to my iPad....and I'm a believer!!!! Your description and pictures in Figure 15 were the keys that unlocked how to execute the move in my mind. I was up til 1:30 last night reading and re-reading your book and was on the range by 8:30. I "got it" in about 10 balls.
I'm 61 and have been playing golf since I was 8 and today is the first time I've ever gotten to my left side at impact and trapped the ball. It worked with my irons, fairway woods and driver. The fairway woods were the "proof" in my mind that I could execute the move. Played this afternoon and shot 1 under. Hit drives in places I hadn't been in over a year and was at least a club longer with my irons. You're a genius....thanks...you are THE MAN!!!!
Plus, I did a lot of VJ advertising with my buddies on the range. While I've been pecking out this text I got a text from one of buddies that said...."This s**t works"!"
If you too are a Hogan fan, this is one book you simply can’t
afford to miss.

"V.J., I recently ordered your book and excitedly read it as soon as I got it. I’ve always been a Hogan fan and still play with his Colonial wedges that rest in my Hogan Tour bag. I have a collection of white Hogan ball caps that I always wear when I play and 5 sets of Apex irons that I’ve collected over the years, one of which is still in the box wrapped in plastic with the letter from Hogan.
So as you can tell, I take anything about him seriously. I’ve read The Five Fundamentals so many times that I can nearly quote it word for word.
YOU were right about those of us that just couldn’t get it to all come together when applying his teaching. Your discovery of the missing piece is “on the money”. I couldn’t believe how quickly it enabled me to better understand his teachings and when I took that thought to the range in a practice session, it worked IMMEDIATELY! I hit about 10 wedges and 10 seven irons and had to stop and catch my breath. The move is so easy to repeat and in concentrating on getting most of my weight on my left foot into my backswing, it seems to make everything else that we’re always concerned about just happen naturally. I was able to better initiate my downswing with the turning of my hips so much easier and correctly that I continued to hit balls for over an hour. I was able to get my ball flight down some and my distance increased on all of my clubs. I couldn’t wait to play and try it out on the course. We teed it up shortly afterwards in our Wednesday shootout match and I made 6 birdies and shot 70. I’m a 2 handicap and have played some really good golf in my day but lately I’ve been stuck around 75 and made some terrible swings. I’ve worked hard on my game over the years and it did pay off. In 2010 and 2011 I had 2 rounds of 63 and one 62 and was senior club champ 4 years in a row. It had all just gone a bit sour the past 3 months. I now feel that I don’t have to worry so much about my swing as much as I used to. I can now just concentrate on scoring again and go for it. Also, I’ve looked at some of the video on Hogan again and can see your discovery clearly now.
YOU ARE A GENIUS! Thanks so much for giving the ability to understand the “best swing in golf’ and apply it to our game. I’ve got a charity tournament to play in today and I can’t wait to hit it again. I’ll keep in touch and THANKS again." -- R.P.

"I played numerous times with Ben Hogan, watched him hit hundreds of practice balls, studied his book but never could put it all together. I truly believe if he had explained his hip action the way you have in your book, many of us would be better players today. Thanks"

"Let me tell you all about why I have been hitting the ball so well for almost two years now. It is because I have read VJ Trolio's book, The Final Missing Piece of Ben Hogan's Secret Puzzle."

"It's not so much my move, its the move Mr. Hogan created after the accident."

If you doubt that Ben Hogan really did use "the final missing piece," than get a copy of John Schlee's 1986 book Maximum Golf and read the bottom middle two paragraphs on page 80. According to his long-time club designer and friend Gene Sheeley, Ben Hogan "...discovered that the more weight he got onto the left foot and the turning point, the faster he could spin level left.
